Acer :: ( Aspire 7720G ) 2 X Hard Drive

May 4, 2009

In the specs listed on the website, and on the sticker on the laptop itself:

320 GB Dual HDD
(160 GBx2)

I am going insane, on the device manager it says I have two HDs, but I think one of them has been partitioned, the one with the windows data on (C drive) the HDs in my computer are displayed as this:

I've been told of a program call 'Raid' or something, but I'm really not sure what it actually does.

I just want to know if the two smaller HDs are partitioned and if possible, how to join them up again,

Acer :: Aspire 4730Z Hard Drive Upgrade

Apr 22, 2009

I picked up a 4730Z last week, and it has a 120GB HDD in it. I need a little more room, and am looking to add the full 4GB's of ram.

My question is which hard drive to get for this model. I'm not sure if I can use a 3.0 GB/s SATA or not or if I should get a 1.5 GB/s. I want at least a 320GB drive, but can't find any that specifically say there's a jumper option for 3.0/1.5. Search function yielded me no results either for the 4730Z specs.

Acer Aspire 5336 :: No Hard Drive Light

Oct 14, 2014

I was trying to replace a cracked screen and was having problems so tried to put the original one back in and order another one. However now when I power up the computer the front 2 lights - charging and lights come on but the hard drive doesnt even flicker nor does the wifi and the screen remains black. It doesnt even try to boot. SOmething else must have come loose or shorted I guess. Should I pull the laptop completely apart and check all connections now or what is likely to be the problem? Everything was working ok previously as I hooked the laptop with cracked screen up to a monitor and it worked perfectly before i started mucking about with the screen.

Acer Aspire V5-122p :: Hard Drive Bad - Using ERecovery In New HD

Mar 6, 2015

I was given a laptop aspire v5-122p and the ALT+F12 for internal recovery is not working. The hard drive and partition seems corrupted and damaged. Windows 8 try to start but a message says there was something wrong and that it will try to fix fit but it restart and do the same in a loop. I scanned the hard drive with an application that let me run it from a usb bootable flash drive. The hard drive came with sector errors.
 
If i install a new hard drive, can i order an erecovery disc and install everything or do i have to do something special? i read somewhere that clean hard drives need to be prepared first with another set of tools provided by Acer. The tools provided in the link are in an ISO named "Format CD".

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Hard Drive Crashed; Need Restore CD

Nov 30, 2008

My high school-age son was working on an English paper when something fell off a shelf and whacked his Aspire 3680 right above the hard drive bay. It started clicking and finally crashed.

The computer won't run with the hard drive installed. It makes nasty clicking sounds trying to boot, and finally beeps and powers off. Without the hard drive, the laptop powers up and runs BIOS just fine.

We can buy a new hard drive, but it seems awful to pay Acer another $20 + $10 shipping for the Vista restore disk!

Acer :: Old Aspire 1690 WLMi + New Hard Drive Vs. New Laptop

Jan 14, 2010

My old Aspire 1690WLMi runs Windows 7, but can`t run Aero cause it has an integrated graphics card. Hard drive space is super tight since it`s only 80gb. Thinking of getting a new laptop around $1000, but also considering just getting a new 320gb hard drive for $100. What do you think i should do - new laptop or new hard drive.

Acer Aspire 5750Z :: Not Communicating With USB 3.0 External Hard Drive

Dec 30, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 5750Z notebook which has fallen out with it's best friend the 2TB USB 3.0 Seagate expansion drive. The acer does not want to communicate with the external hard drive and will freeze, crash and stop responding. When the hard drive is not connected, the Acer is quite happy infact it works faster than it did before. Here is a list of the things:
 
1) I have removed the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers software. The acer restarted 3 times (to be expected) and reinstalled the missing drivers.
 
2) I have managed to gain a limited amount of access to the seagate where I partitioned one sector but it crashed again before I have the chance to do the other, and I have been unable to access the seagate since.
 
3) When I view disk management, I am never able to see the seagate drive sectors E and F but occasionally after running the seagate drive settings software I will see drive E but I am unable to access it.
 
3) I have checked the device manager for hardware conflicts both with the seagate connected as well disconnected and there are no hardware conflicts
 
4) I am tempted but not sure if I should flash the BIOS with this BIOS_Acer_1.21_A_A

Acer Aspire M5-583p :: Hard Drive Password / Can't Get Into BIOS

Oct 12, 2014

i was wanting to boot from a usb stick to try out ubuntu. and acer rep told me that in order to do that, i needed to set a password in the bios system. so i did so, and turned off security to set the password. when i boot now, i get that little blue screen to put in my password, and i know what is is, but when trying to turn that off and using f2 to enter the bios normally it won't let me. it will ask me in a different format for the password.

My password that i put in is blue. and it takes me to the default screen where i can put in another password to get into windows. acer told me i needed to send in the computer and pay 100 dollars which isn't gonna happen anytime soon. i really need to get into the bios system to change the order up the boot sequence so i can try out ubunu. or any other program i want. i just tried to update the bios driver, and it still asks me for a "sato security password" just to clear the air. it has some number and letters associated with the pop up.

Acer :: Aspire 5750G / Hard Drive Capacity Appears To Be Shrinking

Feb 16, 2015

I have an Aspire 5750G that started out with 1TB of disk space. Now it says I only have 100GB free of ca. 650 GB! How did 1TB turn into 650 GB?! I've been trying to use Nero Backitup 2014 to back up my drive to my NAS, and couldn't - I think the capacity shrinkage is why. (Nero tells me there isn't room on my laptop to update, even though I'm trying to update FROM the laptop to the NAS. I went through the procedure with Nero Support, and they couldn't find out why it was happening.) I've done a disk defrag, but still haven't regained the missing capacity.

Model: Aspire 5750G

OS: Win7 64 Home

Problem: My 1TB capacity (not usage) appears to have shrunk to 650 GB.

Program troubles: Nero Backitup 2014 can't deal with the missing capacity, even when I try clearing out my NAS and doing a repeat backup. The exact error message is: It is not possible to sync because the space is full at this location: (My C: drive) Check the space and try again.

Tried: Defragging, no luck.

Acer Aspire 5742G :: Recovery Discs Not Installing Windows 7 On New SSD Hard Drive

Sep 26, 2014

I have Acer Aspire 5742G notebook and I'm having problems installing the Windows 7 OS on my new SSD hard drive (I bought the SSD because the original hard drive is failing and making blue screens all the time...)For the factory restore, I'm using restore discs. I burned the discs few years back when the laptop insisted me of doing it (by using eRecovery or something, 3 dvds total).
 
The computer tries to install the OS with the dvds (asks to insert a dvd and then press a key). The actual problem is that the installer is just going in loops, restarting and eventually freezing in the end.. Reboot -> Acer logo -> Windows is loading files... -> Starting windows -> Reboot -> etc.That kept going for more than a hour (on the first dvd!) and suddenly it just froze on the "starting windows" screen.. So I had to reboot and star over again.I can still use my old formatted HDD, should I make new set of recovery discs or use an USB drive?

The hard drive on my Aspire 5740-6025 went bad and needed replaced. I purchased a new HD and installed using the recovery disks.

Acer :: Laptop Refuses To Detect Hard Drive With CD Drive In

Dec 28, 2009

Laptop is an Acer Aspire 1640. 2.26GHz, 2gb RAM.

Laptop was working fine with the factory Hitachi HTS541680J9AT00 80gb drive.

I purchased a Samsung HM160HC 160gb drive as it's supposed to be the fastest PATA laptop drive available.

I put it in and the laptop just kept saying "no operating system found" with the XP disk in the drive.

I tried several optical drives and got the same issue with all of them.

I then hooked a USB optical drive up and it wouldn't boot from it.

I removed the internal optical drive and the system then booted from the USB drive and loaded Windows fine.

I just assumed it was a fluke and once Windows was done loading I removed the USB drive, installed the factory internal optical again and turned it on...

"No operating system found".

This is where I'm stuck. If I remove the optical the system boots into Windows fine. There were no issues like this with the other hard drive.

I have tried setting the hard drive as Master, Slave, and Cable Select with no change.

Laptop has the newest BIOS.

Samsung does not offer firmware updates on their hard drives.

Apple :: Compared Anti Glare Screens On 15 Inch And 17 Inch

Mar 21, 2010

I had a chance to stop by at apple store today, and compared the anti glare screens on both 15 inch and 17 inch models. To my surprise, the 15 inch one was much brighter than 17 inch one. I made sure that both had max brightness settings, and it was clear that 15 inch one was superior. maybe this 17 inch display model was defect? anyone has opposite experience? (btw, I hate seeing myself and losing focus because of reflective glassy screens)

Dell :: Return Inspiron 15.6 Inch For 17 Inch

Sep 16, 2009

I bought a new Inspiron last week and got it yesterday - I am happy with it except feel a bit annoyed as I though wide screen of 15.6 would be the same as 15.4 normal screen in terms of height, but with a slightly wider screen.

It turns out that actually it is half an inch shorter! And 768 pixels high does not seem enough.

I looked into the 17inch model and for only 25 more I can get the same speced laptop.

Does anyone know how much I might get charged for returning the 15 inch to get the 17 inch (it has been within 21 days) ....

Acer :: What To Delete From Hard Drive

Apr 23, 2009

The laptop is now 2 months old. I deleted all the games, but there is alot left over. After years of admin work on Win2k, and nothing comparable on Vista, I need advice on what I can safely delete and what I may, sooner or later, need.

Here is a list. Let me know what I can and should not delete. I know I have a factory default in a hidden partition. And note that once I delete something, further backups will be made without that software.

1) Welcome Center (Would be nice to get rid of for all users. But I am the only user on this system for the foreseeable future)

2) Windows Media Center - I may back up an audio CD or convert audio to WMA, I may make a back up of my DVDs, but I don't play CD's or DVDs.

3) Windows Photo Gallery. This is actually nice software, but the camera comes with its own, and I play any video CDs in my DVD player.

4) Extras and Upgrades - Anytime Upgrade, Marketplace, Windows Web Site. Beyond purchasing software, why would I use this?

5) Windows DVD maker - Does the Acer backup software use this? I'm still very happy with Nero, and this doesn't seem easy to use.

6) Windows Movie Maker - I don't have a video camera to make movies with, and no inclination to make any at all. I suffered through my father's home movies. - Never again.

7) Live Messenger Download. - I'm not an online chatterer. What else would I need this for? IS this needed by Live Meeting?

8) Windows Meeting Space - I would use this very rarely if at all, and certainly not in the foreseeable future. Live meeting would NOT need this as I understand.

9) Windows Sidebar - From what I read about it, it doesn't seem needed. Aren't shortcuts the same?

10) Table PC - This isn't a tablet PC. But I like the fact that the right side of the touch-pad acts as a scrolling device. Is Tablet PC needed for that?

Acer :: Hard Drive Clicking

Sep 4, 2009

hard drive makes a VERY loud clicking sound every 4-10 minutes no matter what I do. I've contacted Acer and they told me it would take 10-14 days plus shipping both ways (which I would have to pay for) to fix it under warranty.

I've tried looking up any sort of Free Fall technologies, whatever they might be named.

What I found out is that I have a Seagate Momentus HDD inside my machine. Is there anything I can do about the hard drive myself (i.e. disabling the Free Fall) or do I just send it in?

Now that I've explained the problem, I'll explain why I'm not willing to send it in.
I am a full-time college student (18 credit hours!) so needless to say, I NEED this laptop! Which is why I am very hesitant to part with it.

It hasn't been out of the house in the 6 weeks I've had it. It's been on a desk. (I've checked the desk for level, and it checks out A-OK).
