I have bought an Acer Aspirve V3-771G-736b1287 and it is now 6 days old.
On monday I had my first problem with the laptop.
When I wanted to boot the laptop it gave me a warning "No bootable device found, hit any key". So I went in to the bios for the first time and reset everything to default settings.
Everything was fine until today. I encountered the same issue ('no bootable device found, hit any key") and tried to reset the BIOS to default settings, this did not work. So I spend about 2 hours switching things around in the boot order and changing the boot mode to UEFI. This did not help. But suddenly I noticed that "windows boot manager" popped up in the boor priority order. Now I was able to boot up the laptop again.
Now I find this really odd because it says my HDD0 is HDD and my HDD1 is 'empty'. I think it should be HDD0 is SSD and HDD1 is HDD.
This screenshot shows how my boot order is right now (in this order my laptop boots up): http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/1796/20130313195830.jpg
Now I have a second problem and this is with the harddrive. I notice that when I am doing nothing that my harddrive stops spinning (it stops spinning after about 5 seconds of inactivity and goes in to a 'sleep' mode). Now when I continue working on the laptop the action I want to perform freezes and the harddrive spins up, this takes 2 to 3 seconds. When the hard drive is spinning again the action is performed with no lag. It's like the harddrive needs to read before the laptop can continue.
