Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

Hard Drive replacement

I am trying to replace my hard drive with a Hatachi Travelstar5K160, 160gig/5400rpm/8MB for more storage but it will not format. Tried to update my BIOS with ZL53A27.WPH and can not find the program to open this. I can't even find any information about what file extention this is. Can anybody tell me if this notebook can handle this size of hard drive and if so, is a BIOS upgrade necessary to get this to work? Also, if anyone knows a contact e-mail or phone number that works for Acer support please post this so I can give them a piece of my mind. Worst support ever!!

According to the information I have, you can have a max of 120 gigs of hard drive on this laptop. However, for further information you can contact them here.... http://us.acer.com/acereuro/page11.do?sp=page117&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=25&CountryISOCtxParam=US&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=150&ctx4=United+States&crc=1312170003

I would doubt there is a way to get into that encrypted drive without the password. Hopefully you don't need whatever is on there. You might be able to format it, but it would be wiped clean, and all info on it lost permanently.

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.
