Where is the D drive on my acer AT3-600 desktop


IF it has a second hard drive, you should be able to find it in "My Computer" in windows. Start menu>computer.

If it is not there, and you know there is a second hard drive in the computer, you might have a drive initialization problem.

What's the maximum hard drive I can install in a Compaq SR1420NX I have a 80 hard drive right now I want to install a larger one. Will this computer handle a larger Hard Drive


The BIOS has a max. hard drive size limitation. Check the manual for the maximum size the motherboard can support.
If the maximum size hard disk it can support then you can add a second hard drive in the computer as a SLAVE hard drive to double your disk space capacity.

Computer did not bootup after adding 2nd harddrive


Did you connect the drive to cable spot closest to the motherboard on the primary IDE channel? is it formatted? Did you try the drive on the Second IDE channel? Can your system support a 160 GIG drive?(if not try partitioning the drive.). Is the power and data cable connected properly?(the red line on the data cable should be closest to the power plug on the drive.)

Transfer memory from hard drive


Hey jockos,

If you're positive that it's only the motherboard on your first computer that's currently defective, you should have a number of options available to retrieve files from your hard drive.

Generally, the easiest way to do so is simply installing the hard drive into another computer. This should allow you to transfer files back and forth between the two installed drives freely, using a standard drag-and-drop method. Often step-by-step instructions on how to install a second hard drive can be found in your computer's owner's manual documentation, but may just as easily be found by looking for "how to install a second hard drive" using an online search engine.

Please keep in mind that once the hard drive has been installed onto another computer, it is strongly suggested that you only copy and transfer saved files such as word documents, spreadsheets, pictures and movies to the new drive. Transferring full programs and executable files manually may result in software conflicts/errors which may not be easily resolved.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
