Sounds like the drive will have to be reformatted. You will need to use a disk utility like computer management to delete the volume and then create a new simple volume

Hi there , i have an acer travelmate 6592 laptop , the original 80 gig hard drive crashed , and i dont have the recovery disc , the hidden partition wont re install either , i have bought a new 320 gig...


You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

The 320GB does not seem to connect with my laptop. The blue circular lights come on just briefly when the power is turned on but then are replaced by a single red light that also goes out soon thereafter....


Looks like the power of your external drive is not functioning very well. Mostly with this kind of issues, it needs a port replacement or the external drive cable, and if it still does not work, then a complete external drive replacement maybe needed.

You installed the 320GB drive into another system & installed windows XP. Than removed the drive & installed it into another computer!
All of windows internal drivers for the first install will not function in the second. (Windows XP is going nuts).
You have to do a fresh install while in the system you want to keep the drive in. This is why your getting the stop errors & blue screens.
You must have a reason of why you did not install the 320GB drive into the second computer for the XP installation?
Care to provide the why?

Blue screen with error message on startup


Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite


hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
