Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

My AOD150 still does not work with the 500Gb drive but works fine in the external USB case. The "Setup" Identifies the drive and says it is okay when it is installed but when I try to load an OS it says there is no drive. (Yes, the drive has been formatted.) Is there a hardware limit to the drive capacity that the AOD150 will Accept?


Answers :

Is this an IDE or SATA drive. If it is a IDE be sure to correctly position the jumper setting on the front of the drive to either Master, slave or cable select. If master and slave dont fix the issue try Cable Select.
