   Hiya y'all. So, about my laptop: I recently installed an SSD as the OS drive, and decided to wipe the original hard-drive, and then put it back into the laptop, in the space previously occupied by my rarely-used DVD drive. If I now unplug the laptop's power cable while the machine is on, the mouse-buttons and Explorer become unresponsive, followed by a BSOD after maybe a minute. I never tested if the laptop worked on battery power alone after any intermediate step (just after getting the SSD up and running, but still having the DVD drive in), so I'm not sure what part of the chain has given it trouble, and I was wondering if you guys & gals could help me get it working on battery power again. I tried changing the power options (Power Saving, High Performance), and it did nothing to prevent BSOD.

 

   Is it possible that having 2 hard drives is just demanding too much power from the aging battery? Or is it more likely to be an driver-conflict? What do you suggest - if it's easier to try unplugging the HDD and putting the DVD drive back in first, I'm down to do so, but if I'm able to have the two drives in my laptop, it'd be great! I've attached my laptop specs, generated using Speccy. Thanks in advance for any help! Cheers,

Tom

Dang - no replies :( Well, I've since removed the extra HDD that was in the DVD bay, and replaced it with the original DVD drive, and it works on battery power again, making me think it's just a power issue - that is, that the laptop battery alone can't power two separate harddrives (a SSD and an HDD, in this case). Anyone replying with any more info or tests I could try, to determine if I can use both drives would be much appreciated!

 

Edit: btw, the laptop is an Acer Aspire 5750 (Precisely, the 5750-2438G50Mnkk).
