Yes, No Problem The PVR-H140 is fitted with a Standard Laptop IDE Drive, though be careful not to damage the connector as it is quite delicate, if you can afford it you may want to fit one of the new solid state drives, this will have the advantage of using a lot less power so considerably increasing the battery life..

Also be aware opening the unit may invalidate your warrenty if you have one.

I have hard disk model MPC3043AT with capacity of 4 GB. The card (located exactly opposite in direction to 40 pin interface connection, with one end connected to PCB and other end is going down in disk...

You can't repair it, but you can change it with an identical one. Find a similar hdd and look at PCB it's a serial, if it's identical you can swap them after you resolder ROM chip from the damaged PCB to the new one. But this method it's use for recovery data and could be expensive.

Why is my acer hard drive divided into two(2) seperate drives with 36 GB in each drive

One half of the disk contains the program application while resourcefulness is attained from the remaining spaces. Usually the computers disk spaces allows only least application programing from the manufacturer, where a greater faction of the sapces are memory spaces with capacitis to display prorgams with several codes.The computer adjust according to what is requested either of memory, storage spaces.

Too small capacity

Depends on what you are using the hard drive for. For example if this hard drive is going to be used for multimedia then I would recommend a hard drive around 120Gb to 1TB, but if it's for a small office with MS Windows XP installed it should be just enough to host the operating system and a limited amount of programs, hope this help, best of luck

How do i change it back to 20gb

> how do I change it back to 20GB.

What is it currently showing as? Zero?

Any 20GB disk-drive is probably _many_ years out-of-warranty.
Take a sledge-hammer to it, so that NOBODY can possibly read your data,
and then responsibly recycle the disk-drive.

Spend $50 to buy a new disk-drive with TWENTY times the capacity of your "antique" drive.

Getting slow

Disks seem to go slower as they fill. There is a general rule to never let a drive get down to 10% of capacity. Defrag regularly. Some freebies are better than the windows defrag program such as JKDefrag.

Bought 2130 from work . The IT person there removed both hard drive and the shuttle in which the hard drive is loaded, need specs on replacing these Model #'s a drawing if possible. I have a samsung model...

Ask the IT person for the shuttle/carrier for the hard drive, it does not affect the company's data. You can also ask the IT person for the details and hard disk capacity so you can purchase a replacement hard drive.
This model Compaq uses a 2 1/2" IDE hard drive probably 20 to 40 Gb capacity, It is near impossible to purchase one with this small capacity, you might get a 80 Gb capacity or higher.

I want to increase the storage capacity my Hard disk.


You can use SATA hard disk.

you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.

My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.

Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.

Your RAM is ok too.

Hope my info helps you.
