TIP for Acer Aspire One 8.9-inch users – do not play music through speakers at full volume

If you care about your Acer Aspire One, do not play the songs at full blast when you are NOT using your earphones. The reason is little odd: right speaker causes enough vibration and / or magnetic interference to throw the hard drive into a tizzy, leading to a whole host of errors and even some potential data loss.

This is not a sign of good design. I do not play music at high volumes on my Acer Aspire One and perhaps that’s the reason, I’ve not faced any problems with the HDD. The SSD owners are not facing this problem (as there are no moving parts there)
