Closed Disk drive access indicator turns off and laptop freezes Tags: Acer Laptops Disk Drive Last response: February 23, 2013 7:28 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Anonymous a b D Laptop December 19, 2012 9:07:46 PM Hello, I have recently purchased a new laptop Acer aspire 5755G (about 2 months ago) and have been having a problem with it. About once a day, at seemingly random times, the laptop will completely freeze and the flashing HDD light on the front of the machine will go out. The laptop will not respond to any keyboard inputs or mouse movements. The only thing to do is to hold down the power button and force shutdown. Any idea what may be causing this? or if i should try and return to the manufacturer? Thank you in advance, Shaun More about : disk drive access indicator turns laptop freezes Anonymous a b D Laptop December 20, 2012 5:12:00 PM Anyone out there who can help me with this? Thanks aicom December 20, 2012 5:14:52 PM Probably a good idea to send it back to Acer to be fixed/replaced. I bought that same model and while it was slow with the included 5400 RPM drive, it didn't ever quit responding like that.
