I need to buy a internal hard drive for a Philips Freeline LS2200. Can you advise me if I need a 2.5 or 3.5 inches?

The Philips Freeline LS2200 uses a 320GB SATA Seagate, 3.5 inch width harddrive. (7200RPM)
The usual desktop sized harddrive.

Due to the low costs of SATA desktop harddrives, I would recommend at least a 500GB unit,

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Computer will run for serveral minutes then shut down. I have new mother board, new power supply. i use cpu paste that is new. the cpu fans starts with a roar and then is very quite.

The initial fast running of the fan is normal, I'm assuming the fan has as 4 pin connector which is the one with thermal control ( fan speed increases as the cpu gets hotter).

Try booting into the bios, in hardware monitor tab, see what the cpu temp is doing and the motherboard temp. Look for any initial overheating. If the bios screen indicates a temperature rise to say 80 degrees within the 1st 3 minutes of booting, then recheck the security of the cpu, the thermal paste used and whether the base of the heatsink is free from pits.

Look also at the power output of the 12v and 5 v etc circuits, make sure they are within 0.5 volts (0.25 is better).

Check the motherboard and connections, in particular, look for blowing capacitors, or signs of arcing that would cause power to earth. You may have a hairline crack in the circuit that is expanding as the board warms up.

Check the ram is right for the board, remove one module at a time, test with it in and out.

Unplug all hard drives and optical drives, see if it boots to the bios and stays on and then replace each in turn.

Check the PSU.. new it may be but it could be faulty

remove the graphics card if fitted and any other slot in cards, test with these out of the computer, disconnect the usb cables from their headers

After that, the issue may be a fault with the switch, the switch wires or a faulty board or cpu.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Does not boot to the Bios and to the hard drive.

You might have a Mother board problem
Try changing you Ram with a new one

and if you are using a graphic card remove your graphic card and use the onboard VGA to see if the card is giving you the display problem.

and if none above solution is working you might have to test your motherboard but we have to go through this step by step.
Leave a comment on this problem so that we can test your board stp by step
