I have a Dell 5200series(Ithink) w/Windows XP -is 5 yrs old - 28GB on hard drive w/approx. 18 GB available.I recently added 512KRAM to go along w/existing 256K RAM - I am on dial up - Ihave used Reg Cure to look for system problems ------ the problem I am having is 1- that it is slow accessing sites- when I get to a site I have no problem interacting and I can have 2-3 sites running at a time -----and 2--- when I turn puter on - I have AOL - the volume says "welcome" but no longer says "you got mail", if I access - say a youtube spot - it will load - but the play back is extremely slow- a 2 min clip takes forever ----- it will play maybe 2-3 seconds of audio/video at a time and then pauseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for a minute or 2 - then 2-3 seconds again - then pause------------if i try to use the music function - same results- access is slow - when a station is selected - 2-3 seconds of music then 1-2 minutes of "pause" then 2-3 seconds, etc. I have tried adjusting my disk space in internet settings from anywhere from 4000MB to 20000MB and same results - another symptom going on in here is if i hit control/alt and tap delete ----- task manager pic no longer comes up but it does delete the task running. Any clues?

Seagate Expansion 1TB external Desktop Hard Drive (9sf2A4-500) not detected.


Claire,

Have you tried connecting the drive to another computer using Windows 7 or later. You could try chkdisk /f at a command prompt or get the testdisk app to identify deeper issues with the drive.

Which operating system supports IBM thinkpad 600x


All versions of windows except Vista and Windows 7.
You may find it difficult to purchase Windows version up and including XP.
You may need to install more RAM and a a 6 to 10 Gb hard drive.
The smallest hard drive available is approx 100Gb but the BIOS in the Thinkpad won't support a hard drive this large.

Formating hard disk


IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.
