  1. Hello krazykara;

    If you remove the hard disk drive does it still make the same sound?

    I am not locked out it happens about 60 % of the time when logging into computer. How do I go about removing the hard disc drive?
  3. Follow the instructions in your model's manual.

    That would be wonderful if it came with a manual. no dasy you download them. Lots of ink and paper. Anything else. I checked all audio updates and the were done successful... :bounce:
  5. Look for a folder named ACER. Your manual is on the computer in .PDF format.
  6. Can you tell where the sound comes from?

    Besides the hard disk, the only other thing I can thing of that might make a "horrible sound" (not quite sure what that means) might be the cooling fan.

    It sounds like it is coming from the top right side of the keyboard. mayb underneath? :ouch:
  9. Having looked over the layout I can't think what would be making that noise.
    If you disable all sounds in Windows - are you still getting that sound?
    That would suggest it's coming from the speakers and it's not mechanical issue with the laptop.
  10. By the way - did you locate your owners manual yet?

    the manual did not come with it when i bought it at walmart. they said i had to download it. just go to acer home pg. :o :pt1cable: :pt1cable:
  12. That's fine for those that have internet connections.
    For everyone else - it's already on the laptop.
