Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

It won't boot, I took it to a local shop and I was told that the hard drive had bad sectors on it. I called ACER and they wouldn't honor the warranty because it was two days past the one year anniversary of purchase. I can't find a new hard drive any where and ACER is obviously not going to help me what do I do?


Answers :

All is not lost. Just replace the hard drive & start over :>) Most computer stores can do this for around $80 to $100 and it should be like new. I have replaced every drive in every one of my laptops including many different brands. Sorry that you lost all of your stuff on the drive though. Hope this helps. Oh, and if you're careful, you can do it yourself and save.
