Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook ?

Will Aspire 3610 w/- 40g drive work with 160g ata-100 drive?

\015 My computer is becoming unreliable and recovery process only works for a short while. If I replace the hard drive 160gig plus drive seem to be the smallest available. Will the 3610 recognise the drive and operate normally?\015

Answers :

Yes it will I have just done this process on 3 laptops and all are running slightly better that they ever did.

\015\012When you buy the hard drive you should also get a cheap enclosure that will accept your drives to help with the transfer of information from one to the other.
\015\012
\015\012make sure you get IDE drive NOT SATA
\015\012
\015\012you can also download any driver updates bios updates from here too

It will. However, depending on the speed of the drive, you may have to go no more than 7200 RPM.
\015\012
\015\012If the drive is not recognized, then what you have to do is download the actual BIOS program and save it to your computer. (Unless it has it's own CMOS chip and then you'll have to flash the system BIOS).
\015\012
\015\012If it doesn't have a CMOS chip in it, then hook up the SATA laptop hard drive externally and install the BIOS program to that hard drive.
\015\012
\015\012The only way to tell if you have a CMOS chip in your laptop is to install a full-version of at least windows XP. If there is only one partition on the laptop, then you do have an integrated CMOS chip and all you have to do is change the hard drive.
