Welcome to FixYa, my name is Steve. If you are adding a hard drive you need slave that drive to your existing hard drive. The hard drive manufacturer may have an installation program but normally you only need go to your BIOS setup and see if the hard drive capacity id displayed along with the options available there for LBA, etc. The description of your problem only mentions BIOS capacity but leaves me wondering what the present problem you face really is. I will help with more information. Steve Medley

Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

Checksum Error after Bios Upgrade K7VZA


Have you tried resetting the CMOS? Often, after upgrading BIOS you need to clear the CMOS and re-setup to handle the new features. You should have a jumper to clear CMOS, or you can remove the power from the system and remove the battery for a few seconds to clear it.

Let me know if this clears up your issue.

It most likely will work, but the BIOS (might be too old) may not allow you to access the full capacity of the hard disk.
You would normally lose approx. 10% of the capacity when you format the hard disk.

Want To Replacing My Toshiba A10-S330 Hard Disk


Hi,

Normally you can upgrade to a new hard disk to the next bigger size, so from 40 Gb, then perhaps a 60 or even an 80 would work. Even if the BIOS/motherboard would not recognized the new size, Windows XP would and be able to access it.

However, I don't think that the size should really be the main concern. I think that your selection should be based primarily on the power consumption. Most laptops have a preset power distributed to its devices. If you are going to use a bigger size HD with a bigger power consumption, Windows (or even your BIOS) might recognize it but the power distribution might be over worked.

My suggestion would then be go to the next size but keep in mind the power rating/consumption of the old when selecting.

I am enclosing an image of my laptop's HD. Pls note the rating DC+5V 0.7A for this 60Gb HD. The 0.7A is its current consumption/rating.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Capacity


Pre 1999 machine with Award BIOS? If so, this is because when they designed your computer, they didn't imagine 80 GB drives were a realistic prospect. Suggest you download DiskWizard from Seagate's website and use that instead of Windows to format the disk. Hopefully this will be enough to let you see the full capacity of the disk. A.
