Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Is there supposed to be some kind of a bracket holding the hard drive in a Acer, Aspire 1690 Series notebook, or does the hard drive just slide in without a bracket. I need to install a new hard drive in one of the above mentioned notebooks. I have the new hard drive but do I need to buy some kind of bracket to mount the hard drive in, before I install it in the note book?

Dear Customer,
Acer hard drive brackets or caddies are available for all the notebook series. i would recommend you to go for a bracket for the hard drive rather than just sliding it in. For information regarding the brackets try the following site

How do i get the hard drive out?


Gateway GT5056 Desktop Hard Drive Caddy Bracket Holder Mount HDD 2JB35 005

Look at this picture. It should look like the bracket your drive is mounted in. You must remove this caddy to get at the other 2 screws. above where you removed the 2 screws from the side of the drive, there should be a screw that holds this bracket to the frame. You must remove this screw. ALso there may be a spring loaded clip that stops the bracket from sliding out, you must lift or press this before sliding bracket.
good luck

How to remove hard drive in a acer aspire 1641


take the side off the case, it should be fairly easy to find the screws or knobs to unscrew to remove it. depending on the case type there are usually 4 screws holding the hard drive; 2 on either side, then you should be able to slide it out. you can look here http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_8244498_install-drive-acer-aspire-desktop.html for reference

Your notebook needs to have a service manual to do this properly since you will need to remove the Thermal and CPU along with the CDROM.

Here's a link with some blow ups but not enough detail.

Replace the optical drive on Acer Aspire m1201


based on the images i've looked on for the Aspire m1201, you don't need to remove the front panel in order to remove the optical drive. if there are screws holding the drive in, remove them and then slide the drive forward. if its held in by sliding latches and not screws, then slide then in which ever direction necessary and then push the drive forward to take it out.

Acer aspire 1690 won't boot after bios flash


you need to go into the BIOS and load the default settings, (this is neccesary) and detect your primary hard drive.

that's about it, should work after that (unless the bios image was invalid for your device)

hope this helps

How do i change the hard drive in a acer aspire 5710


underneath the notebook you will see a little hard drive icon next to the bay you need to remove.

the hard drive normally pushes directly into the motherboard and is held in by means of a clamp.

Once the clamp is removed gently slide away the hard drive from the motherboard connecting pins and replace your drive.
