Acer Aspire 4736Z - My 2nd hard drive was gone after repair

Hello everyone.

OK, everything began since the monitor got damaged and was in a bootloop after hibernating Windows. So, we decided to repair the laptop, they said they no longer have parts for the monitor (although it got itself fixed while going home), but they fixed the bootloop. It was a installed with a Windows 8. After I opened "This PC", the 2nd hard drive was missing. My mom asked if they removed it or not, Acer replied that they did not removed the hard drive. I tried installing Windows 7, but the installer only saw the 1st drive. After installing Windows 7, I checked the BIOS (InsydeH20 Setup Utility), but it just really showed up the 1st one. So for now, I am only using 1 drive, and trying to keep my drive to have more space. Is there any fix for it? Please reply.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... What is the exact Model Number of your Laptop ? ...


What size of Hard Drive did you get as a replacement ? ...


Are you sure your Original Hard Drive was not just partitioned ? ...


What was the size of your Second Hard Drive ? ...


Was it an SSD ? ...

The exact model number is 4736Z.

Never did replace the hard drives.

Never partitioned it.

I think the size of the 2nd hard drive is 150+ I think.

It is not an SSD.

It was the total GB of all hard disks. I think the 2nd hard drive was 180GB

So your Hard Drive was not replaced ... If that is the case its size should be around about 140 GB ?


Or is it 320 GB ?
