Hi,
The device driver is causing a conflict with the system. If you have got any specific cd with hardrive install the driver from the cd. Otherwise , i would suggest try changing he manufacturer of the hdd and get a new one. If you have recently bought it.
Otherwise try creating a new account in windows vista on your computer and then try plugging in the drive

Where is the wireless button located on the Acer Aspire 5600, how do I turn it on


If there isn't a small button on your laptop, then see if any button on your laptop has a "blue-ish" colored icon that might be Wireless. Pressing FN and that button should activate it.

Are there any keyboard key to activate wireless on Acer Aspire 5600?


The wireless switch should be on the front, under the latch of the lid

If the keyboard has a wireless key, Acer usually uses the icon of a satellite.

My Fujitsu mhy2160bh reads read error when booting up and my coputer wont come on it keeps prompting me to ctl-atl-del


Hello

Ok, you might want to have a close listen to hear if the drive makes a clicking sound, if so, then the drive is broken. If the drive does not spin up at all, then it is not receiving any power. This can be a result of either a broken circuit board or a broken drive.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Need to replace acer aspire 5314 hard drive. Where can I find one?


You need a 2.5" 150 Gigabyte drive; however, those laptops are prone to a short in the serial connection from the motherboard. This is an almost impossible task for an novice user to change a motherboard and the cost is not worth it. I installed a new hard drive and although the laptop recognized it, it still will not recognize it and load the operating system. Tested drive on another laptop and it works flawless. The hard drive became bad from the short which you can sometimes hit the bottom of the unit and make it work long enough to backup the data.

MHY2160BH Half dead wierd behaviour can't read / access data


If you have opened the hard drive case you quite likely have pooched the drive. This type of work is usually carried out in a proper "clean room" as even very small particles of dust that float around can cause destruction of a hard drive.

That is why they ALL carry a warning about opening them. some even have inert gases instead of air in them as an aid to keeping the inside clean and avoiding airborne corrosion.

Specialists are the only people I know who can dismantle and recover data from the platter but they are not cheap.

You are more than welcome to try yourself but you would need the EXACT control board right down to the revision number to stand even the slightest chance.

Problem with Hard driver fujitsu mhy2160bh.


You computer need the oem driver for the sata controller to be installed before windows can be installed. It wont find the drive at all with out the driver. You have to use the factory restore disks or have a usb floppy drive and download the driver and put it on a floppy disk and change the bios to work with the floppy. The easiest way is to use the oem software.
