Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Car Crash I bought a Acer Aspire 3000 off a friend. It bounced around in a car role over, and a month later stopped working. He was going to give it to me for free thinking that all it need was a new HD. When i went to pick it up it worked and a gave him some money. My question has less to do with how to fix and more if I should try. The computer loads all the way to the desk top then crashes. The touch pad become unresponsive and jumpy around the time AIM is automatically loading. By the time AIM realizes there is not internet to access it is frozen. NOTHING respond ctrl alt delete or holding the power button does nothing. To get it to shut down I have to pull the bat. This happens about 2\3 to 3\4 of the time. If it dose not freeze it works fine (using it right now). It worked for some time after the crash with no problems. So that made me beleave the HD is starting to die due to his high demand applications he us to do. My theory that it did not get damaged from the crash waned when i found a crack in the joint for the monitor. Now my question is a judgment one. Would it be worth it to try to replace the ram or HD. Because there is the chance that the terminals are bad or there is something else wrong. Or should i just run it till it dies Or Or give it back. At this point the computer is only worth 200 - 300 on ebay so I don't want to wast to much money one it. Considering I gave him 200 with a promise of a complete refund (and I'm on a very tight budget and hate ebay) Advice?

It wouldn't do you any harm to run CHKDSK (type that word into Windows help for guidance on the various options and how to set it going). It's one of the system management tools that comes as part of Windows..

If you run it in thorough mode, it will give you a good idea if the disk is damaged. If you let it repair errors as it finds them, it might even set you straight.

I bought my acer aspire 4736 last oct 2009,within a warranty period i found out that the unit I bought had a lcd monitor problem, then I returned it to the store where I bought it they fixed it by the acer...

It depends upon the situation of usage or might the lcd monitor that was replaced somehow crash again. Its must be a brand new one and at least for several months warranty,if ever need a replacement again and it turns into the same scenario, well some components need to be check cause everytime it replaces new lcd,it always crash.might some shortage takes place.

I just bought a car a few days ago and before I purchased it the guy put new tires on it. After driving around I realized that the front end of my car when i break would not stop immediately but sort of...

Have you considered the suspension? If the suspension (struts) are worn, they will travel further when braking, giving the appearance of the car body being in motion. Does the car "bounce" when braking? Most national brake repair shops will perform a free (really) test on your struts. If they are in fact bad (and a 2001 car might be), then stop by your friendly mechanic/car salesman and work it out. Even if you had to pay (wholesale) for the parts and he installed them it would resolve your issue at a good price.

i had the same problem. the battery does something during startup and the only way i found to fix it was to turn it on without a battery while its plugged into the adapter, or leave it in standby instead of shutting down... i dont know if theres a better way, but thats what i do.

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.
