Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I am getting this error, have checked the HD connection and everything is tight. After resetting the boot order to the default (HD, DVD, then Network) I still get this error. The odd thing here is that when selecting the boot order my HD and DVD models don't show up. They are represented by IDE-0 and IDE-1. After 10 or 15 reboot attempts the drives actually showed up and the models were listed in BIOS. The system booted up great and I thought that I solved the problem. Later in the evening I needed to install a Vista update which required a reboot and it started back up ok. Then, after closing the lid on the laptop, we get the same error again.
It makes sense to assume that the drives are ok but just aren't being recognized when booting up. Let me know if you could help me out.
When you get that error message, it's mean that your laptop isnot detecting your hdd, that's why it try to boot from network. Since you said you replaced hdd recently,
I believe your motherboard is bad.
About the fan, you can open the back door,
you just need to open the door and you can see the cpu fan.
