Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize
The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

Computer wont turn on. power button light flashes
if the power button is flashing and wont power on, remove all other device that is connected, like LAN cable, mouse, etc., remove battery and power.. leave it for like a minute or two. power on the computer w/o the battery and connect power cord directly to the wall outlet. see if that will work if not bring computer to a local tech for hardware repair, and if computer is still in warranty you can call the acer for hardware warranty repair.
Thank you for using Fixya.
Replace plug and now it wont turn on but it will
Hi. From the sound of it, you have broken or cracked the solder joints for the power jack.
I would look and check all the solder connections, and re-solder then all if need be. That is most likely where your problem lies.
Especially since you said that you replaced the plug, well, the new plug may have caused undue stress on the solder...i.e. pulling or tugging on the power wire.
It is the main cause for laptops to have power problems.
After all, it is receiving power, so it's not the adapter, otherwise the battery wouldn't charge either.
The only other thing it could be is a bad power supply module inside the laptop.
It might have a damaged capacitor. These are notorious for going out, without warning.
Just be careful when dealing with them, as they can store a large amount of electricity.
I hope this helps you to narrow down your power problem and to help you get it going again.
My 5002 WlMi won't boot. All that happens when
Replacing a motherboard on a notebook is generally only recommended for professional technicians. As a last resort before trashing it, it might be doable for a resonably skilled person, but finding/buying the right motherboard is another matter.
Though, it might not be the case that it's the motherboard that's faulty.
If you can post a more detailed description of the problem, when it occurs, and if there are any life-signs at all (HDD-lights, screen, fans et.c.) it might help getting some answers.
How to replace the DVD drive on Acer Aspire 5002
I actually had to permorm this action yesterday.
First remove the small strip above the keyboard by unscrewing the three
screws at the back of the machine that hold it; then twisting the
screen al the way back and lifting it up.
Second unscrew the keyboard (2 screws) and lift it away (don't detach the cable).
Third: on the left side under the keyboard unscrew 3 screws that hold the cdrom in place.
Pull the drive out. The rest (taking the case of the dirve) should be transparent.
There is nothing on the bottom you have to unscrew!

We ran a typical Acer Aspire 5100 battery
of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.
