Basically, any brand will work so long as it's a SATA 2.5 inch HDD. The standard drives shipping are around 160GB which is a common size.

5400 rpm is the basic standard; you can also get 7200 rpm drives which are a bit faster, but also more expensive. Most folks can't tell the difference.

You realize, of course, that you will have to reinstall the operating system from some sort of external CD/DVD drive, or possibly a USB flash drive that is large enough.

My personal preferences for hard drives are Western Digital and Fujitsu...I have to repair fewer of those overall than other brands.

Hope that's helpful.

Acer aspire 5534 hard drive compatability.

As with any laptop the Hard drive usually comes with a Pre-installed version of Windows. Best bet is to call Acer and get a price for a replacement. Depending on the maker putting a different type of hard drive is not allow because the recovery discs they give you will only run on certain hard drives due to a detect program that is built into the discs. This is not necessarily true for all makes models and brands but both Acer and Dell in my experiance do this for win 7 machines

Acer aspire t 160 wont boot after ram installation

When purchasing RAM make sure ram modules are of the same brand any type
IE corsair ddr3 low density or hynix high density ddr2 you should always try to keep the same brand and type of ram
reason being the compatibility issue

and always place the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

also check the ram sockets for dust and make sure the ram modules are securely seated you can do this by pressing the levers at either end of the ram sockets.

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

You could put the old ram back in your computer and see if it starts then you will know if its the ram.

Hope this helps.

I need a Acer Aspire KAV10 D150 webcam lead, can anyone point me in the right direction ? UK only if possible. Thanks.

Hi Neil,
I understand your concern.
If i were you i would buy a small external webcam which is available for laptops.
There are two reasons for that. First of all, if you take it to the Acer repair center, they will charge you a huge amount (since it is not in warranty).
Second thing is that the lead which you are talking about is practically impossible to get other than from their manufacturer.

Hope that helps...
