Acer Aspire One Hard Drive Found Dead After Blasting U2 Music

Posted Mar 29, 2009

Anyone that owns an 8.9″ Acer Aspire one netbook should beware of blasting their music at full volume using the built-in speakers.  On the HardwareCult forum, it was found that anyone using this type of netbook and a standard hard drive could be vulnerable to finding their hard drive having errors and data loss.  The vibration from the right speaker and magnetic interference is the cause of the flaw.

On the forum, someone posted that they discovered this problem while playing Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me at maximum volume by U2.  That instantly gives U2 credit that their music is so intense that it can kill netbooks.
