Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

What kind of hard drive do I need for an acer aspire 4315? From what I have found it needs to be 68 pin, is there anything else? I have replaced a few hard drives and this is an easy fix (much easier than digging into my Thinkpad and replacing the power jack!!). I am just not familiar with this model, she brought it over with her from the Phillipines.


Answers :

A hard drive with 68 pins is a wide SCSI-3 hard drive device.
\015\012SCSI drives need a SCSI controller (eg in this case an Adaptec SCSI-3 controller) and the SCSI ID of each hard drive can be set from 0 to 7. The ID setting on the hard drive is jumpered by 3 x 2 pin configuration using a binary configuration to get the 8 SCSI ID combinations.
\015\012Depending upon the length of the cable and the number of connectors on the cable, it can support quite a number of SCSI hard drives, whereas an IDE cable only supports 2 drives per cable.
