First you have to tell us what make and model of PC you have.
If it is a self built or generic clone then you need to tell us what motherboard it has got.

If you do not know what your system is you can find out by downloading a small utility which will interrogate your PC and tell you what it has inside. So you do not need to open the PC.
You can download this small utility from here:

If you have an older motherboard, it may not be able to recognize a hard drive larger than 137GB.

That is not information specific to your motherboard.
You need to provide specific details about the make and model of your motherboard.

If necessary open the case and look on the motherboard.
The details will be marked on it. Do not forget to make a note of the issue of the motherboard as well. This because the same board may have been issues at diffrent versions so we would need to know your version.

Hear are a few tips that are worth reading:

You have still NOT provided the model of your PC.
You have said it is Acer but not which model.

Meantime see if this helps:
