Having problems with your Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop ?

When i got this computer as a gift, it had an extra HDD installed, a 320GB Western Digital Model# WD3200AAJS. The HDD never worked and i sent it in for a replacement.

Answers :

This issue could be a simple one have you changed the jumper setting on the back of the drive correctly, if it is set to cable select you will have this type of conflict, if it is on sata 2 change the jumper setting to either master or slave then reboot and see what happens. If you have set this right then it is a possibility, with the noises you are hearing from the hdd that it is faulty, and may have been damaged in transit.
