Acer :: How To Remove DVD ROM Drive From Aspire 1650 Series

Sep 30, 2007

Has anyone got a process and/or pictures of how to remove the DVD drive from an Aspire series notebook? Most other laptops ive seen are just a slider or single screw but seemingly not that on this model.

Ive even gone as far as removing all the screws on the underside but it still doesn't loosen the drive.

I want to remove it to clean and check another model drive to see if its a drive fault or not and if there is a fault replace.

Acer :: Aspire 1650 Ram Sticks

Jan 19, 2009

I need to upgrade the RAM on an Acer Aspire 1650. I used CPU-Z to check and it told me it is PC2 4300 DDR2 ram. All nice till this point.

I happened to have two 512MB DDR2 sticks around and tried to install them there, but no luck.

They don't FIT.

I checked 2 other laptops and they all use the same memory sticks like the spare I have and none have the same size as the Aspire in question.

Checking online, all DDR2 PC2 4200~4300 SO-DIMM sticks I can find are "200pin", but the spare stick I have is ALSO 200pin.

How can I tell if a certain memory will be compatible with this model? Does ACER use some "very very very specific" type of memory?

Jun 29, 2014

Id like to remove the 32gb msata Cache drive in my laptop so that i can upgrade it to a 250gb 840 for use as another storage device.  I know how to physically remove the msata from the laptop i just dont know what i have to do before i do that.  Can i just simply physically remove the drive and reinstall the drivers saved on it to my HDD or is there other things that need to be done first like disabling intel RST.

Lenovo ThinkPad W510 W Series :: Can't Remove HDD Password

Jun 18, 2010

I recently set an HDD password on my W510. Now I would like to disable it again.
 
Unfortunatly the option to set the password is now inactive in the BIOS: It says "Hard Disk1 Password   [User]", but I cannot select the option in order to change it. This appears to be a bug. I once had a T61, where changing the password was no problem.
 
I would really like to get rid of the password again.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y550P - How To Remove Caps Lock Indicator From Displaying On Desktop Screen

Apr 29, 2014

Every time I press caps lock, change volume i got  a notification pops up that often messes up the window focus. It's particularly annoying when trying to play games. Can I turn this off?

I searched around for other people having the same problem and the one solution I got was to change Hkey_Local_MachineSoftwareWidcommBTConfigGeneral KeyIndication to 0, but that's already set to 0 for me, and I'm still getting notifications. The solution with removing "lockkey.exe" is not working as well. I just don't have program like this.

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 :: Anyway To Remove All The Bloatware

Aug 11, 2009

just got a new Acer 6530 laptop and it has SOOO much bloatware, a lot of things that i don't even need. I like how Dell had like zero bloatware. i like Acer's program that backups the whole system though. Does Vista have something like that?

Should i delete all the programs from Control Panel or is there a way for me to install a version of Vista (downloaded copy from a torrent site) and then use the key provided from the Acer laptop so I know it'll only install Vista?

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 :: My Aspire 5600's 100GB IDE Drive Just Died

This afternoon my Acer Aspire 5600's 100GB ATA/IDE drive died on me (lots of clicking/grinding sounds, nonstop disk read errors). I was looking around for a replacement but all I can find in stores are SATA drives. Can I find a reliable IDE drive somewhere for cheap? Would it be worth putting in a solid state drive (if one can be found for $100 or less)?

Acer :: Aspire 7540 With Non-Working BluRay Drive

Apr 23, 2010

I have had this laptop for just about a week and a half, and although last week it played "The Dark Knight" BluRay disc, it will not play any bluray at this point in time.

The Acer Arcade Deluxe program is apparently supposed to do that function, but it will not. I have updated the software for AAD a couple of times. I have tried reinstalling it, I have tried checking the driver for the multi-drive. All to no avail!

Right now the Device Manager calls the optical drive a CD-Rom. I do not know if it was a Windowes update that screwed things up, or what, but what is the point of buying a laptop with a blu-ray drive, when 10 days later it won't play a blu-ray disc?

Acer :: Aspire 5050 Loosing HDD And DVD Drive In XP & Crash

Jan 15, 2009

My 5050 crashes XP every few minutes, maybe half hour sometimes with an 0x07 blue screen.

I have temporarily taken to booting ubuntu (llinux OS) off a USB pen drive and it works fine, however, i might well see the HDD and DVD drive in Ubuntu but its not long before they dissapear from the visibilty of the OS. Of course this would be a crash in XP but not under these circumstances.

I can hear that the hdd is running and the cd drive will open so its not a power issue or temps.

I think the mobo ide controller is falling over or connections associated with it.

I cannot identify the ide controller (if it is a seperate component to the mobo itself) or investigate problem further without some knowledge & ideas from experianced members here.

Even trying to take this notebook apart seemed difficult & I gave up after a few screws were out. Anyone got a strip down guide/service manual and more importantly some ideas on my fault.

At first I was thinking of maybe a dry joint on the HDD connection but that was before I ran Linux OS and discovered I was actually losing visibility of both IDE hardwares. Not just the HDD, and not losing power either.
