The answer depends on your BIOS version.
If you have upgraded to V.1.20 then no. ACER removed the compatibility for 4GB of RAM (no idea why).
However, if you have V.1.19 or lower, then YES you can.

My laptop has a flashing lightning bolt and will not start up. Please assist. Thank you.

Good day

Have bad news for you, means your power pack or the mother board or the ram has blown, so here is what you do, remove the back covers of the laptop remove the hard drive, put the hard drive in another pc, or a friends, backup all your data,

take the pc to your nearest hp or whatever the make is support centre, to be checked by profesional it tech's, or you can open the laptop up, and replace the part a see which is not working anymore,

Really sorry to here what happend, but in the future make sure you unplug any electrical stuff from the mains when there is thunder, get a ups and a surge protector, it can also help protecting you from brownages, power spikes,

hope everything works well

have a nice day

good day sir, hi, its either your motherboard does not support 2 sata drives simultaneously or your motherboard sata port is bugged.
1. get a bigger hard drive
2. use a PCI to SATA card for your extra SATA hard drive.
3. replace your motherboard.

Hope this may help.

750 GB Hard Drive support on intel 845 motherboard

Hi prabhatkumar, your Intel motherboard's bios will see the drive. The question is will windows?
Do not use windows to setup the hard disk drive. Download the free bootable software for a floppy disk from the manufacture's web site. Boot the system to the floppy & format the drive. You'll be able to set the cluster size (Like windows would do) but the software from the manufacture is far better than windows. Any version of windows XP will see your total drive size. Just make sure the drive is seen while in the bios. (If it will be the primary drive make sure it is listed in the boot order).

Good day prabhatkumar!
Run into any issues just drop me a note.

Acer Aspire 5100 problem

You don't want to hear this I know, but your symptoms are very much like those of a computer in which the motherboard or processor has died. It is defnitely not the hard drive as you would still get a display and be allowed to go into Bios even if the hard drive was totally out of the computer. And missing memory would result in bios beeps indicating a faulty bios configuration, but all of that requires that the motherboard and processor be good. If they are not, you have the situation you are speaking about.

Write delay slows computer and then stops

Please find the name of the hard disk drive, found on the white label on the hard drive. Ex: Seagate, Western Digital, Samsung ECT. Got to their web site & download their tools or drive setup utilities & create a bootable floppy disk or bootable CD disk.
Their dos like software will test & repair most hard disk problems. Back up you're personal data, picture, and address book ECT. & burn to CD before running software.
If it finds problems it will erase you're data to repair the drive. You'll find other settings you can turn on or off that may increase the drive speed. The slowness is all about the hard drive & not you're system. If you're lucky all you'll have to do is a fresh install of windows.

Good Luck!
