Hello!

This is unfortunate that it has taken place. :/

Are you positive only the HDD is damaged? Is it feasible that various other hardware components of the lapheight may be damaged, as well?

To make sure if the drive is corrupted or not, or if there is a difficulty with the hardware setting of the lapoptimal, you deserve to take the drive out of the laptop and affix it to an additional device (internally or externally). You can use a USB adapter for this if you pick exterior link. This method you deserve to examine if the drive is working, loading the OS, lagging or not, etc.

Hence, you will be able to understand if you have to rearea the lappeak all at once, if you have a opportunity of retrieving your information or utilizing the drive at all.

Article back! Any further actions depend on these outcomes. :)

Windows 8 crucial is currently in the bios so the installer will certainly discover it automatically.

You have to go through the exact same variation the machine came via 8 or 8.1 so if it was 8 then you would certainly should downfill the 8.1 update after installing 8.

You can purchase an outside disk drive and reinstall Windows through the recoincredibly media that is gave by Acer then rerevolve it to the store. They run around 25-30 dollars.

I ordered recoextremely media from Acer for my specific version. It expenses around 20.00 exterior of the warranty. If you chat through someone on assistance.acer.com, they have the right to help you reorder the recovery media through bit difficulty.

When it's all shelp and also done, though, you might spfinish about 30% of what the computer is worth if you buy a $60 hard drive and also purchase $20 media.
