    If I read your post corrctly - you have tried swapping hard disks around and the indicator LED for a specific drive bay is still inoperative. I would say that your Acer machine has a blown LED in the drive bay concerned. If it's under warranty, you have a claim against the seller, if not then any decent hardware bod ie. someone that is handy with a soldering iron, should be able to replace it for you.

    By the way - you HAVE CHECKED both the appropriate connections and connectors?
