Acer :: Aspire 3023WLMi Not Recognizing Harddrive & Dvd

Jan 29, 2008

A friend brought me a Aspire 3023WLMi few weeks ago. Problem: Unable to boot. BIOS didn't recognize harddrive. I switched it to another laptop which reported SMART-error. I replaced it with another harddrive. Now BIOS still won't recognize harddrive or DVD-drive (can't remember if it recognized DVD earlier with original harddrive). I can't open DVD-drive, so obviously it's not getting any power. if this a sign of broken MB, or just loose cabling? Or something else? If it's loose cabling, how to check it?

Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Ram

Oct 20, 2008

ive got a slight problem with my laptop. 2-3 months ago i added an addition gig of ram to my acer aspire 3050 for a total of 1.5gbs. it was the correct type of ram(i made sure it was the same as what was already in there). for some reason the computer will recognize that the ram has been placed in the slot but it does use it at all. when i am running programs will it will still draw what's needed from the hard drive even though peak usage rarely surpassed 700mb of ram. was there something i was supposed to activate/adjust after installing the ram?

and another disconcerting thing is that since i installed the ram the fan is on fullblast 100% of the time and the machine heats up almost to the point of overheating really fast even when doing basic things like surfing the web

Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Blu-Ray

Dec 13, 2009

I have been searching for days for Blu-ray help. Apparently after everything I've looked at, ACER really screwed up their ads of blu-ray on computer. Because, even though my notebook should play wont even recognize the disc. It tells me there is nothing there. I am getting really fustrated that there are no drivers or any other useful help out there.

Acer :: Aspire 5102Wlmi Harddrive

Mar 29, 2008

I have talked with someone who has this laptop and he says that after about 4 days after installing windows it will change the drive to read only so it can't load windows or linux correctly. Is this some kind of easy fix or could it just be a motherboard problem?

Acer Aspire V3-571g :: USB 3.0 Port Not Recognizing Any Device

Oct 27, 2014

I put a new Windows 8 on my pc due too my old HDD dying --' and my recovery partition was corrupted so i had to clone the c:/ drive of a friend of mine with a similar laptop on my new sshd.

Until now everything was working fine some double drivers but they posed no problems but i have 1 problem with my 1 usb 3.0 port, it won't recognise anything, when i put in my external hdd it fires up so i know the port is giving power but it doens't recognise the drive, same goes for my usb wireless mouse and usb drive.

I know its not the drives or mouse themselves because when i put them in one of my usb 2.0 ports they function without problem.
I have already tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting the computer, took out the battery for several minutes and so on.
I also remarked that in the devices and printers there is a device called unknown USB device (port reset failed)...

Acer Aspire 7740-5691 :: DVD Disc Not Recognizing And Communicating With Computer

Dec 5, 2014

I had my notebook evaluated by a local technician who told me the trouble I was experiencing was due to the DVD disc not recognizing and communicating with the computer. Upon further investigation she determined that the drive did read and play audio just fine. Video and graphics (pictures) would not play on the drive. Her conclusion was that the drive had a defect of some sort related to the DVD function only.
I have two questions.

1. Could it be that the ROM is corrupt and can that be replaced?
2. IF I have to replace the drive can I do that myself or do I have to have a professional do it??

Acer :: New Harddrive Not Recognised

Jan 26, 2010

I have an acer 5620z and the hard drive died. I replaced the hard drive and I have recovery cd's but I can't use them as it looks for partitions. I have read that I need to partition the hard drive first so I downloaded the DiskFormatDT_V1-1D.iso and installed it. during the process it didn't see the hard drive but it ran through with no errors (by the way the bios does see the hard drive).

After the disk format cd I tried the recovery cds and I get the 'no partition found error' so i am stuck. i know there is the PQService but I don't know what to do as I need to be able to partition the drive so i can run recovery cds. As it is a new disk Alt F10 etc wont work.

Acer :: Timeline 3810T Not Recognizing IPhone

Nov 5, 2009

I've got an odd problem - my iPhone neither charges nor is recognised by USB2 on my 3810T. Tried same lead and phone on desktop and other PCs no problem. I'm running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit on both laptop and main PC.

My normal iPod classic connects and charges fine via the 3810T as do other peripherals like the external DVD-RW and memory sticks. Sony Ericsson mobile phone connects and charges too.

Can anyone explain this or has anyone either had the same problem or have connected successfully with an iPhone?

I've a new P276M laptop running Windows 8.1. I can't get it read USB flash storage devices.
The USB ports seem to be working - wireless mouse OK. Also it works fine with an external Seagate hard drive.
I've tried a number of different flash keys - encrypted and non-encrypted. The system 'sees' the device but all I can get in Device Manager is an icon with yellow exclamation mark.

Acer :: Sent Laptop For Screen Repair, Harddrive Wiped

Apr 3, 2009

What is the point of sending a laptop to repairs if they do more damage than good? I could put up with the dodgy screen. I have months of work, musical compositions etc. stored on that laptop. This is a disgrace and I can't imagine what would possibly compensate for it. I'll have to see what I can get off my old laptop that I gave to someone else and look through my emails for stuff I sent people.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000T Not Recognizing RAM

Jan 28, 2009

I have a DV6000T with Windows MCE bought in Jan 07. It came with 2 GB of RAM, and I finally decided to upgrade to 4 (although I know it can only read 3.12). I bought 2 x 2GB Kingston DDR 2 PC2-5300 667 MHz RAM and installed both sticks into my DV. I turned on the thing expecting to see 3.12 or something of the sort in the system area, but it still only shows 2GB.

Dell :: E6400 Not Recognizing Second Stick Of RAM

Sep 3, 2009

I received my E6400. In short, I like it. It came with 1gb of Ram. So I ordered 4gb of Crucial (2x2gb) ddr2 6400 to put in it.

Well. It's only recognizing one stick of it. The Ram itself is not bad. I've verified this by placing each stick in individually and I get no errors. Would there be any reason the computer would not be recognizing that second stick that isn't hardware?

The bios says the second slot is empty. Which either means that for some reason the software isn't recognizing the ram or the second slot itself is bad?

Started out with XP. It did the same thing. only 1 stick was recognized.
I've installed Vista Home Premium 64-bit.
Bluetooth upgrade was user installed.
What other system info do you need?

Dell Inspiron 14z :: Not Recognizing AC Adapter

Dec 6, 2014

Yesterday, my laptop stopped recognizing the ac adapter.  It's been functioning fine until now.   Now, it will not charge the battery and I can only use my computer with the cord.  I purchased in late 2011 or early 2012.

Have read other dell model posts that suggest replacing the adapter, battery, updating BIOS, etc. Haven't seen anything related to my model.

HP/Compaq :: Computer Not Recognizing Hard Drive

Jan 18, 2010

i recently had a post here about my laptop being thrown up on, and looking for a new system board. Well I was able to buy the whole laptop base, with system board and power button so all i had to do was install the screen cd drive, hard drive, and wireless. I did all of this and put it back together, but when i try to start the computer it gives me a no hard drive installed error. What can I do? I ran the memory test and its 100% working, and in the start up test or whatever, the only thing with a problem is the hard drive not showing up.

HP/Compaq :: Tx2zRM Clock Not Recognizing Proc

Aug 18, 2009

I just got a new tx2z yesterday, opened it up, took forever cuz of bloatware. I downloaded a copy of windows 7 from MSDNAA (Thank you college) and installed it and found drivers for the pen and everything.

I knew from the reviews that the tablet runs HOT, and was going to use RMClock since I heard people using it to undervolt their processor. However, RMClock 2.35 does not recognize my processor (AMD Turion Ultra ZM-83 2.3ghz)

I did the vista 64-bit RMClock fix in order to run the application, but since it doesn't recognize the processor, there's nothing I can do to undervolt it.

Also, does anyone know of any fan control software that I can install that works? Something like I8K for dell that works on the tx2z? (64 bit windows 7 that is)

Apple :: Macbook - Recognizing Part Number

May 25, 2010

My fan recently died in my macbook (early 2008, probably a penryn right?) and i decided to replace it myself.

I ordered a fan that was stated it would fit all macbook's except the macbook with unibody.

It was shipped from the US and i live in Sweden so it took a while. I recieved it today and lo and behold, it does not fit.

I've opened up a dispute with the seller but i need to fix my laptop asap so i need to get another fan somewhere.

I will probably be buying from ebay since it's cheaper, but this time i want to be certain i get the right part.

I wanted to ask if i can identify what fan i want and don't just go by the description of the item (since that fooled me once)?............

Dell :: Harddrive Activity

Mar 12, 2009

Past few months my 9300 with the 100gb 5400RPM drive has been laggin like crazy due to lots of harddrive activity. Sometimes it feels like I'm running a pentium 2. I always thought it's because I didn't have much free space (8-15gb) but I recently cleared it down to like 35GB free and have set a defragmentation every night at 4am. I use diskkeeper for that. It hasn't really gotten that much better...

I think I will do a "boot-time" defragmentation to totally defragment, but what else should I check?

Running 2gb ram with 1gb paging file, windows xp pro, up to date.

Dell :: Is My Harddrive Any Good?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with a 320GB HDD. A few months back when I checked how much free space I had left it showed 295GB not 320GB in total.

Currently I have 224GB out of 295GB and this doesn't seem right to me because I have nothing on my HDD except for CCleaner and and a few small programs.

I figured that so much space was being taken up because when I downloaded Firefox which is 30MB, 10GB was taken off of of my HDD, same thing happens with whatever I download. I have no clue whats going on

Dell :: Harddrive Died

Oct 11, 2008

My Hard drive went kaput and right after I had put about 4 hours of paper research info into it.

I spent hours trying to get the information off the drive, but now have an additional issue: The external drive I borrowed from my friend was being used with Apple OS X. SO, when I plug it in to this win XP machine, it doesn't recognize the drive or show any existing files!

Does anyone know a program or a way to help me verify if my attempt to recover data might have been successful? The only other option I can think of is, after getting a new drive into the laptop, installing linux hastily and transferring to a different drive. And no, the friend that I am borrowing from is a few hours away at the moment. I need that research for Monday, and I feel the pressure!

This is the first hard drive that has ever failed on me inside of a year, and its true what they say: It happens only when you suddenly have data that is actually important.

HP/Compaq :: Dead Harddrive

Mar 25, 2009

The 500GB HD in my DV7t just died. It's definitely dead, as I pulled it out and tested it in a caddy. When the computer goes to initialize the drive, it gets an error in the I/O device. I still believe I'm under my one year warranty from HP. Does it cover dead harddrives? And if so, do they require that I send in the dead drive? I work for a small business, though my boss has a rather strict data policy - all broken, dead, unused or outdated drives are to be turned into them for proper destruction prior to sale, refurbishment or replacement. Even when we send our laptops off for repairs, there are 'stock' harddrives we place in them that have never had sensitive company data on them. A bit paranoid, definitely, but it's company policy.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Not Recognizing AC Adapter Although It Is Working Well

Jun 26, 2012

Every time I turn on my Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop, I get the following message:

"The AC adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge. The system will adjust the performance to match the power available. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for the best system performance."

I don't know why I am getting this message since:

- I am using the 65W Dell AC adapter that came with the laptop- The adapter is charging the battery properly- The green light on the adapter stays on all the time when in use- The port connection is fine

So, other than this annoying error message, everything seems to be working fine. Should I just ignore it ?  If not, what else do you recommend I do ?
