Sorry I need a little more information before I can solve your problem. What did you use to format your hard drive? What does the computer do when you press the power button? Do you hear any noise coming from the machine? Can you clarify what you mean by "rebuilding the hardware"?

I can't find any reference to this specifically. Try re booting and if there is still a problem, check the hard ware for any changes.

I have an acer travelmate 2300, i cant format it because the hard drive cannot detect by the computer, what is the probelm?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then it is most likely faulty.
To get your Acer operating again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs.
You candownload the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

What is the maximum size of hard drive for the travelmate 2300


Hello,

Please keep in mind this unit uses IDE hard drive instead of SATA. The default 2300 uses a 30 GB high-capacity Enhanced-IDE hard disk. With latest BIOS upgrade, this unit will be able to have anything installed. 80GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, 500GB.

However, I believe that IDE hard drives are slowly but surely becoming obsolete and legacy and they seem to be more expensive as well.

I have a acer 5100 aspire that won't recognize the hardrive half the time and won't find some of it's usb ports. I have reloaded windows and even tried different hard drives (used not new) and it seems to...


Do the following:

  1. Check in the BIOS to make sure that the HD is present in the system before proceeding..
  2. If not then power off the laptop and then carefully remove and replace the HD from and to its connector.
  3. Then secure it then reboot the laptop.
  4. Check the BIOS settings again to see if the HD is recognised.
  5. If you still can’t see the HD then obtain a USB to IDE / SATA adaptor cable from eBay or your local PC store and remove the HD from the laptop and lay it down on a flat horizontal surface and use the adapter to connect to the laptop’s HD and connect the USB to another PC. This will show if there are any issues with the HD itself and will allow you to format it if necessary.
  6. Then replace it back in the laptop and all should be well.
  7. If not then you can suspect that you have an HD controller issue which is a very costly repair in a laptop.

  1. If the laptop will boot or you have a bootable CD / DVD then change the boot sequence in BIOS to be CD/DVD then Hard Disk.
  2. Reboot the laptop.
  3. Once booted look at the Device Manager to see if there are any errors showing in the Storage Devices and the Hard Disk in particular.
  4. Then go to option 5 or use the bootable CD / DVD to reformat and rebuild the hard drive.
  5. If all the above fails then install a new Hard Drive, format it as required and reinstall the Operating System and applications.

My laptop will not connect to windows, just keeps rebooting


If the laptop keeps on rebooting, the only problem is the hard drive (HD). You need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the Windows. The reason why this is happening is because Windows is corrupted due to some reason (most likely due to virus).

Have a great day!

Tried rebooting from the disks, but...


I had this problem with my Acer Aspire 5920. What I had to do was use GPLCD which is a linux utilty to format the disk as NTFS. It is available here. http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/

For me it was easy as I have another computer here. I downloaded the iso file and created a CD which is bootable.

I put it in the drive for the laptop when the computer was on, turned it off and then powered on. The cd loaded GPLCD and I selected the format disk option. NTFS was what I used.

I then put in my ACER recovery CD for the Acer Aspire 5920. All worked ok from this point onwards.

Hope this helps.

cheers
