Yes it would, but this is not as easy as it sounds, desktop pc's are easy to do but not notebooks, as you may have a restorew partition on your sytem to recover your pc if it crashes.

your option would be to buy an external usb pocket drive, as they can also be used on other pc's and you are able to run programmes from them on any pc using the software provided and they are cheap nowadays

See here for an example

On the BIOS set up, it will show HDD (none) but if i return the old one the system will detect it.


This model laptop was installed with a 60Gb hard disk. When you installed a much larger hard disk the BIOS could not detect this hard drive.
Check the HP/Compac WEB site foe a possible BIOS upgrade that can support a large hard drive. Otherwise try a hard drive 120Gb or smaller.

I can't format my HP Compaq 6720s Notebook,win xp say can not hdd drive ,but i'll get new hdd


The reason XP cannot detect the hard drive is because thr hard drive in this model HP is a SATA hard drive and the Windows XP installation CD does not have the SATA controllers on this CD.
To install XP on a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Hp compaq 6720s says pxe - e61


PXE is the boot option from a bootable network card, so basically the BIOS isn't seeing any of your bootable drives and going trying to PXE-boot off your network. Check the boot options in your BIOS and make sure your drives are detected by the BIOS. If they are not listed, then the drive has likely gone bad.

Replacment sound card for hp compaq 6720s.


Your system does not have, in a soundcard per se. It uses integrated audio that is capable of delivering the features and high-end performance of an add-in audio card.

Ergo, assuming you are lacking sound, you can mosey on to the HP site and look for what they refer to as a 'softpaq'. Use the HP search engine on their website (rather pertinent results if i may say so myself).

1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

Unlock dvd region


There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.
The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

RAM UPGRADE FOR HP COMPAQ 6720s


The speed of your computer is determined by the memory capacity, the hdd storage capacity (that means that if the hard drive is full of data your computer becomes low - not about the size of your hard drive) and your processor speed.

In your case I recommend:

1) A good cleaning,
2) Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected
3) Get rid of those programs that you are not using.
4) Disable the programs that are running on the background

Sure after that your computer will become faster.
Your memory capacity is good enough to your normal duties (above described)
