Smart failure predicted on disk and cannot load Vista after format due to projected failure. Now it is happening again on a different HDD. Can both HDD's be ready to fail?


It is entirely possible, but not terribly likely, to have two drives fail in a row. I have had several of my drives make it more than 6 years, and I've seen students come in with dead hard drives they day they bought their machines.

My acer 7520 will not boot up it sas error bootconfiguration data


Oops! that is serious. It means it cannot find a portion of the boot sector on the hard drive.
If you have a system disk, boot from that and when prompted, repair your system.
When it is working, run CHKDSK/F as there are possibly hard drive sector errors that cause this sort of error.
Hope this helps.

I have had my acer 7520 for two years and in that time it has chewed through 6 hard drives! Is this normal?


If your spending that much replacing these drives,i would try to download some engineers type tools to tell you the processing actions and hard drive functions etc(try diagnostic tools for your model)
Then try to get operating information from your manufacturer.

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.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.


This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

If you have no video at all then turn off the laptop. Reseat the memory and then turn the laptop back on with just the AC Adaptor hooked up to see if you get video if not then try reseating the memory into the other slot and try turning it on again to see if you get video. If not then your motherboard may be bad. Just curious though after you turn on the laptop, does the hard drive light keep flickering like its trying to load windows?
