    Sorry, Navysparks, your solution does not apply to the Acer Ferrari 3000 Laptop, there is no single screw holding the hard drive cover down, and there is no apperture on the laptop for a hard drive to slide out as you suggest. If you know the correct way to replace the HD, I would welcome further input.

    Sorry for earlier comment, (guess that's why I would have loved a picture. Anyhow, just had a neighbour come around and he has another Acer model on which he had changed his HD.
    Thankfully, with his experience on other Acers and your instructions, we were able to figure out how to do it and I have now been able to replace HD and have just got everything back up & running,

    Many thanks - a real help

I was unable to find pictures, but generally speaking, the laptop is held in by a screw. turn off the computer, remove the power supply to be extra safe. next, locate the screw forthe harddrive and remove it. the drive should just slide out the side of the computer. insert the new drive and then screw it back in. hope this helps!

My laptop acer aspire 3000 wont boot. I can use the erecovery but i need help saving all of my data.


There are a number of ways to do this. One of the easiest is removing the drive from the laptop and placing the drive in an external enclosure. You can get them for 20-40 at any computer store. Once you've done this you can access the hard drive from another computer and copy them off the hard drive then run the recovery and you should be set.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask, please don't forget to rate my answer.

Thanks!

Replace a cd/dvd drive on my Laptop


Not possible at all. To install XP or Vista again, you need a CD/DVD drive working. (or) Contact Aspire(or local technician) if they can ship a XP/Vista pre-installed Hard-disk.

Could be a bad memory chip or a hard drive crash. Can you hear the hard drive engage? If so, is there any clicking or dull thunking sounds? Both of these are indicators of a hard drive failure.
