Did you hook up the ribbon/sata cable to it as well as the power supply? Also go into your bios and make sure it is recognized.

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.

Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    Desktop went down, got recovery discs from acer. when 2nd disc is used get "read error". cleaned disc. no use. tried to install vista and it wants a cdrom driver to continue. not found on acewr's site.

    Test other CDs (just copy their contents to the drive).
    If that goes smoothly, you've got a bad CD from Acer.

    You may also be so unlucky as having a bad CD-drive.
    If the warranty is up and If you are a smoker / cat owner, try cleaning the drives laser-lens.

    Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition

    Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
    Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
    Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.
