I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I'm not sure this is the correct board but anyway, I've had an Acer Aspire V5-122P laptop for a while now and the processor is rather slow and I want to upgrade it. It has an AMD A4-1250 dual core processor, suggestions for better compatible processors? Something over 2GHz preferably. Thanks in advance.

hi,When I go to format my Acer it gets to the Windows 8.1 section where you select the hard drive to install Windows on before clicking next, also has the option to format and I think make a partition but there is no hard drive showing up in that box so I can't continue from there, it's the part after selecting language and clicking install.Has anyone else had this problem? If so how can I get my hard drive to appear in the box?Is there anything in the bios settings that can make my hard drive appear in the box?Thank you.

Hey guy! So the title basically says my problem.

I have switched power plans, tweaked the settings, looked it up, and other stuff but I can't seem to figure out the problem. This laptop is about a year old and I have never changed any settings (except from different power plans) and it just started doing this recently. The laptop is not physically damaged in any way and neither are the inner workings (programs, code, and such). I would really love to know why this is happening because it shuts down the laptop completely and I need to restart it every time. It is really getting on my nerves because I have to open and close my laptop all the time to tote it around the school campus. If anyone has a fix or suggestions they would be well appreciated.

Thanks!

Bought Acer Aspire V5-122P-0408 in November 2014 with manufacturers warranty and extended warranty. Internet won't connect, doesn't detect any networks while there are many available. Went to control panel, laptop couldn't detect any networking hardware. No ethernet cable fits in the any ports. Called Acer, they said my warranty expired. (Even though it's only been 8 months when the warranty is, I believe, for a year). Called Walmart (where I purchased the laptop) and they said that my manufacturer's warranty is still valid and will be until November 27, 2015. Not sure why my warranty would no longer be valid? Also no idea how to fix this without sending it back or having it replaced? (Not tech savvy at all.)

i don't think you need parts. the HDD card connector is the big one under near (JHDD) the fan connector (JFAN), you just to slip the HDD cable inside and push back the connector.

Hello everyone.

OK, everything began since the monitor got damaged and was in a bootloop after hibernating Windows. So, we decided to repair the laptop, they said they no longer have parts for the monitor (although it got itself fixed while going home), but they fixed the bootloop. It was a installed with a Windows 8. After I opened "This PC", the 2nd hard drive was missing. My mom asked if they removed it or not, Acer replied that they did not removed the hard drive. I tried installing Windows 7, but the installer only saw the 1st drive. After installing Windows 7, I checked the BIOS (InsydeH20 Setup Utility), but it just really showed up the 1st one. So for now, I am only using 1 drive, and trying to keep my drive to have more space. Is there any fix for it? Please reply.

A:acer aspire 5735-hard drive swap

If I understand you correctly I think you mean you want to be able to swap between 2 hard drives on your laptop, please correct me if I'm wrong

In answer to your question, yes you can do this without damaging the operating system on your HDDs but be sure to remove them when the machine is powered down.

I have had experience with replacing HDDs on various laptops including Acers and just wanted to give you the heads up that it can be more difficult than you think to get into the HDD bay; especially if you have to remove the whole plastic case to get to it.

However why do you not simply buy a cheap USB 2.5" caddy and put your smaller drive in there, then boot from it via USB? It would not require you to open up the laptop every time and would in most case be more convenient for both sharing files and quick OS changes. The only downside is that your drive may not have the performance of it's internal counterpart but that shouldn't be too noticeable in most cases.

I just bought this and the hard drive is already filling up fast. Will getting an SD card make a difference? What can I do about this? I won't be doing anything fancy on it - just internet access and using the basic 3 MS Office products. Right now there's only 654 MB of space left. I have not yet installed my printer driver on it because I want to see what the resposnes are. Should I get an SD card and install the printer driver on the SD card? More info:eMMC 16GB2GB DDR3 L Memory Thanks!

You didn't say which OS you have but with Windows 7-up you should be able to create a recovery flash drive and save a system image on a hard drive. Then use the recovery drive to restart the machine with the new disk and when asked, tell it to recover from the system image you saved. ps this works if going from a smaller to an equal or larger disk but not to a smaller one.

Hello. I have an Acer Aspire One AOA150 netbook, and it was showing UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME as a stop error for windows XP. I tried using the Recovery Console to repair the disk errors, but the utility gave me an error saying the drive had one or more unfixable errors. After this, the hard drive was no longer recognized by the BIOS. What can I do to fix this problem? If the problem requires a hard drive replacement, what size hard drive do I need to get (1.8" or 2.5")?

You need a 2 1/2" laptop hard drive either SATA or IDE. Be sure to remove the drive and check for this before you buy a replacement laptop hard drive

A:Acer Aspire hard drive failed... recovery media no longer available?

You can't legally used your Desktop's recovery media on your laptop (also because usually manufacturer's build such medium for a particular piece of hardware, with all drivers etc. pre-installed).

I think you can either choose to run Ubuntu or you can get one of those cheap OEM windows media from e.g. newegg. However, one draw back of this is, I believe you can't get any help from Microsoft directly, if you ever need it.

A:Acer-Aspire V3 laptop hard-drive died, no recovery disk

The Windows 8 key is embedded in the BIOS, there is no COA sticker.

I believe you will have to wait for the recovery disk if you want Windows 8 as you will not be able to download a Windows 8 ISO without a retail key. Microsoft really screwed this up and has made no attempts to fix it.

You can do a clean install of a Windows 7 upgrade disc, see here: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version - Windows 7 Help Forums

Hi,

Not sure if this is the correct sub-section of the forum but couldn't see a more appropriate place.

Any advice appreciated: I'm trying to do a factory restore on my Acer Aspire laptop, as it started crashing, stalling etc. and then eventually just failing to boot up. I've gotten a fair bit of my important stuff off it using a Linux (Knoppix) disc, so am ready to do a factory restore.

However, when I try to do so, I get the error message: "WIMApplyImage Fail. Error: 045D" then I click on "OK" and it says "FAIL to restore image"

Any ideas? I'm worried that my hard drive may be physically damaged. When I listen it's making the odd whirring/clicking noise, but doesn't sound particularly out of the ordinary to me.

Or, on the other hand, does anybody know of any alternative options to the in built Acer factory restore?

Thanks,

Chris

A:(Acer Aspire laptop) Factory Restore failing - hard drive damaged?

Hi Chris. Welcome to TSF.

Have you tried opening up a terminal window and running chkdsk /r on your system? You might also run "sfc /scannow" from within the terminal window as well just to see if perhaps your problems are system-file related.

The clicking noise you're hearing is a bit troubling as it is often an indicator of an impending hard drive failure. I'm glad that you backed up your stuff though. Often that is one thing many people do NOT do and then they are left scrambling for ways to recover their data.

Good day!

Mike

He doesn't want to open it again so I'd like to have the part there when I arrive next week to swap in for him, if possible.

It's sounded like a Hoover since he got it so does it need the more expensive quiet model suggested above or will the stock ones here suffice? https://www.google.com/search?q=92mm...w=1067&bih=533

and it's $35 (free shipping). Whether the OEM one has enough proprietary features to justify the expense over a generic, I have no idea.

Was it charging before you replaced the "iSSD board"? If it was, then the board is the problem.Maybe the "wrong" board is causing something to get crossed or shorted.

Hello everyone!

I recently bought a new keyboard for my Aspire 7741G. I wanted to replace the old kb with the new one, but i`m having problems removing the old keyboard. I`ve unscrewed all screws, but the top "plate" (the one that holds the keyboard) is still holding somewhere in the middle. Any advice on how to remove the keyboard? Or if someone knows where to find a service guide/manual for this laptop. Any answer is appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Acer Aspire 7741G keyboard replacement

I don't know about Aspires, but while replacing a HDD in a Sony Vaio, the final screw holding the top plate was underneath the keyboard. All around the keyboard edges, there were "almost invisible" brackets holding the keyboard down. Had to use a very small screwdriver to carefully pop them.

After you restore to factory settings, does the speed improve any, even if for just a short time? I want to look into why you are still having problems after repair. Can you please send me a private message with your name, phone number, and serial number, so I can investigate further.

Recently Ive had an issue where my V5 just shut off out of nowhere and would not boot up. I would do the battery reset, and sometimes it would work, other times it wouldnt. The times where I have been able to get it toboot up, I'd use it for a few minutes and then it would again randomly shut off. Now it seems to be stuck in a constant cycle of getting to the Acer screen,and shutting off. It will not get past this screen, and I cannot access the BIOS... computer will not stay on long enough. Battery is good and takes a full charge, cooling fan works, and I hear the HDD start to spin. Could it be a bad MB? Thanks

I have a month old Acer Aspire E 15 laptop. Its touchpad is very hard and for normal touch it just keeps roaming picking up cells. It can only be stopped by taking off the finger and then carefully taking cursor to an empty cell and press hard to click so the several picked up cells get released and I can work further. I tried Fn+F7 suggested by a forum member but it acts only an On/Off switch for the touchpad. Press Fn+F7 and it goes off, press again it comes back. But the hardness remains. A click with the touchpad means press the touchpad hard till it literally 'clicks'. Looks like the machine will be usable only with a mouse. Before I had a Lenovo and never faced any such problem. Anyone faced such a problem?And any solutions?

Hi,If you have Precision Touchpad in your laptop, go to Settings, Devices and select mouse and touchpad, try disabling features one by one and test whether it resolves the problem, when you say that you have to press hard, did you mean physically? If it is, then it may be a hardware problem and needs a technicians attention.

Sometime's when entering Real and Writeable discs, i get prompted to format the disc which in most cases can't because of it being a genuine cd/dvd. Over the past few days now it just doesnt seem to recognise anything. asking to insert a disc and spitting on the current disc i have put in.

As the title reads I'm not able to boot to flash drive on my Acer laptop. I have Hirens boot program installed uising Grub4dos to configure the downloaded ISO of the hirens boot disk.
when computer start press I F2 to enter the bios, I go to Boot and chose USB HDD then press F5 to get it to the top to number 1. then go to EXIT and press exit Saving changes.

When restarting the computer it goes directly to the screen taking me to Windows 8.1.

When going back to the boot options it shows that none of the changed configuration has changed.
Any ideas?

When attempting to boot to USB My changes I've made when going to the bios for whatever reason do not stay after clicking F10. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Does the Acer Aspire E5-574g have the sata connection for a 2nd hdd via a optical drive caddy? The e5-574g does not come with an optical drive installed. If it is possible, will a 9.5mm drive caddy work in this computer?

Hello, Unscrew the screw marked in the attachment and remove the dummy ODD. You should see normally a SATA connector in the bottom of the housing. The heigh of the original ODD is 9.0mm.

Hello, I'm currently having problems with my dvd drive on my laptop, I'm aware that there are many threads with almost identical problems to mine but no solutions I've tried seem to work.

The drive dosen't appear in my computer, and in device management does appear but with the alert sign over it. When reistalling the drive it says "problem during installation". I've also tried installing new drivers and firmware from the acer website but this hasn't helped. I haven't added or changed anything on the computer I can think of, rather studidly I hadn't set any system restore points.

My laptop is the Acer Aspire 5610.

System information:

Microsoft Windows XP
Media Centre Edition
version 2002
Service Pack 3

Genuine Intel CPU
T2300 @ 1.66 GHz
1.3GHz, 0.99BG of RAM.

The DVD drive is:

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM DSA-T10N

Any help would be great, Thanks.

HI

My Toshiba C650d fell of my bed the other day and my hard drive is damaged. When I boot the laptop up I get no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key. I have done some research and found out basically my Hard Drive is F*^K%D. I did'nt have many important files on there so I dont care about losing them but I dont wont to get it repaired as it will cost about the same as getting a half decent Notebook.

Is it possible to buy a New Hard drive that fits my Laptop. Would this make my Laptop boot up and start or do I need to fork out and get another?

If so how do I get a Hard Drive that I know will (fit in my laptop) with my Laptop.

Really need some help here!
