first check whether the device is working on another computer. if it is then there are driver issues on the computer you got this message from. if not then your casing interface is not working right. you can get the data off the hard drive by removing the casing and plugging the drive to a desktop computer.
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.
If your hard drive is SATA and your windows disk does not have SATA drivers on it it will not find the hard drive this is your problem http://driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/ Go to the above site and download "driverpack mass storage" and slipstream into your windows CD. I have done this with one windows install disk that could not find disk then it worked perfectly
thats problem regardiong to your windows version if its working proerly when newly installed than may some files delted during some uninstalation can do all this stuff, so try to install new full version windows xp than try ,i m sure about that your problem will fixed up.
Is your board an ABIT? If so then here is the link to select your motherboard and download the latest BIOS. Make sure to read the web sites instructions on how to update your BIOS. Let me know if you still have issues.
Check the SATA/RAID controller setting.
It could have been set to [Disabled]
Refer to your user?s manual for a detailed description on how to enable the onboard SATA/RAID controller by adjusting the jumper or BIOS settings.
I have one thats ide ultra, & my computers see it as a disc drive, like a cd drive when i put it in an external seagate case. but when i put it in as an internal it shows up in cmos w/ 320 g space, & no matter which pin config i use it doesnt show when the os is booted. I enabled LBA like it says on the drive, & tried all the other options in CMOS & havent got it to go yet, but it sounds like its running perfectly when it powers up. it'll go, but its actin crazy. ill post it when i get that bastard.
