Hello User,

I was playing a game on my laptop and it had completely frozed and I couldn't do anything. So I had Force shutdown the laptop and when I brought it back up it said hard drive not found. So I followed some tips on here and I didn't get anywhere. I brought up the system repair page by pressing f2 and I couldn't find the HDD so I pressed F9 to restart everything and it froze on me again. I am also hearing like some weird noises by where the headphone port is at. Please help me, I'm hoping someone can fix this because I don't have enough money to go down to the shop to buy or fix my laptop

Hi

This is a sticky wicket because it looks like a hard disk failure.

Try to reset your laptop to factory, out of the box, setting.

Good luck

Oh well, as I said before, since you can't boot to Windows, looks like your hard drive is damaged

Sorry

The pleasure was mine, again sorry about your issue.

P.S. A hard disk can be replaced but one should compare the cost of the fix with a new machine.

Last, stay away from Acer which is a low end brand.
