I have an Acer M3100 desk top that had the hard drive fail,I had made recovery disks for it before it failed and I need some advice on getting it running again. Can I just plug in the the brand new HDD and then feed the recovery disks into the dvd/cd player?

Yep, just put the new HD in, have the first recovery CD in the disk drive, and start the computer.  And then just follow the instructions.  That should take care of it.

Im having problems getting it to post,I have replaced a few capacitors on the motherboard next to the CPU,there are 5 or 6 3300uf caps in parallel and Ive only replaced the 2 that were bulging because they are bastards of things to solder.Looks like I will have to replace the lot and see what happens?
