Backup you files and documents to DVD then reload Windows using the restore DVDs or CDs the notebook came with. This will solve your space issue as well as your mass storage controller error.

Also sounds like you may need a new AC adapter and battery, both should be faily easy and inexpensive to purchase on eBay. Just search by you Acer model number and both the AC adapter and battery should show up. I would at least get the AC adapter, sounds like there is a break in your cable. I got one for my wife's Acer for under $30.

ACER 4630z will not boot up


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My acer netbook "D" drive is nearly full


Hello,

Go to your drive C:, right-click, scroll down to "properties".

An option will pop-out. Look towards the down part and select Compress...... Then click "this"< then "OK".

This will compress your hard-drive and give you more space.

I hope you understand this.

Good luck.

C drive too full


If there is a large number of unused space on other partition you could directly allocate the free space the your system partition, but keep in mind backup your important files is recommended no matter which way you use when re-partition hard drive, learn more from this link: http://www.extend-partition.com/help/allocate-free-space.html

First of all, check the free space on your hard drive, if it is showing as almost full, this will be slowing down your computer. Use the maintenance command under properties to delete and clean up all dead data (cookies etc)

After that, delete the rubbishware that you do not use. I suggest you download this application to do this with
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Now see if this improves the problems, if not and you are showing a decent amount of hard drive space, I suggest you run a command line virus scan and check for viruses and malware

I suggest this:
http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/?lng=en
Run this in safe mode, allow 1 hours for it to scan and then do a deeper scan by setting the scan to C:/

After the scan has been completed, reboot and back in my computer, go to the C drive, properties and "check volume for errors"

Acer 5315 HD C is full HD D empty


Very likely the answer is yes, IF: 1) there is enough space and 2) that D drive is not being used for something else. Check on what is on the D drive. It's usually reserved by the manufacturer and contains OS restore files (used for restoring your system after a crash). Don't delete these, but if there is enough free space, just create a new folder and put your files in there.

Acer 3680. only half of the harddrive works.


check it on the bios the size of your hard disk, if its 80 gb then go to the control panel after booting open the administrative tools, open computer management, then select disk management, check the hard disk there, if there is an unpartitioned space , then convert it to the partioned space

Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
