Your best bet on purchasing a hard drive is at pricewatch.com, most places will charge you almost double what you can get one there for. Buy the hard drive first, then, if you don't feel confident in changing it out and reinstalling the operating system yourself, take it to a small computer shop in your area. They will charge you a reasonable price for installation. Don't take it to Bestbuy, the Geek Squad is outrageous on their prices, plus they'll try to sell you more "stuff" you really don't need.

I had this problem with an acer laptop, It was a faulty hard drive.

Has your laptop been dropped or banged shut, banged on a table etc?

hard drives are very fragile, a disk with a needle on it in simple terms.

These can be very easy to break and repair. depending on what type of hard drive you have, they can be reasonably cheap to buy.

unfortunately installing a new hard drive does mean you will not have an operating system ie windows.

Hi please help me..my acer aspire 4738G i bought a month ago is really so slow.what would possibly happen to it.how can i fix it.please help me..thank you.


Hi there !

It is simple to solve by pressing F8 when booting up and running your computer on safe mode. Safe mode will fix some errors because of some faulty drivers or multiple drivers installed with the same drivers.

After that restart again you computer and then defragment your computer by going to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tool, choose disk defragment. Do it every week and surely will run your computer faster.

I hope it helps you.

All IDE hard drives are cross compatable. I would think you have eaither bent a pin inside the carriage compartment or your IDE adapter is either not pushed on the new HD good or is bad.

Hi, i buy used laptop L355D-S7815 without hard disk i put a new 1 work fine but i don`t know if must have a caddy or something else because feel like is loose please help. thanks.


Some laptops need a caddy, but if the hard drive can fit in without a caddy then don't worry about it. If the drive is a bit loose then wrap or add some paper around the hard drive to stop it moving about.

Need password for Inspiron 8000 service code *******-595b


if you are getting a hard drive password prompt ***********-595B then the fix is simple enough, replace the hard drive. The password prompt is supposed to be the HDD serial number, but since it is showing as all astricks, then the firmware of the drive is bad and a replacement drive is the fix.

Sounds to me as if you disconnected some cable either indirectly or directly leading to your screen. First of all, NEVER leave computer parts lying around to get dust in them. Second, make sure all of your cables are connected, jiggle everything around a little(not too hard!) and see if it works then. And you say that the screen doesn't work as if you haven't put the hard drive in just yet. Have you or haven't you? 'Cause it certainly won't work if the hard drive isn't in yet...
