Replacing harddrive


In most acer laptops you can replace the hard drive from the bottom of the laptop, its under one of those covers that is hold closed with a few screws. inside one of them you will find the hard drive in its holder.

My sony vaio s460 does not detect the hardrive, after I installed new 120 gig sata, I called to sony and they said tha I need the same hardrive 80m gig 5400 rpm, as the laptop comes from factory, it is...


It may be that your machine can not handle a drive of that size. When I replace hard drives I always try to replace them with the size they came with just in case they do not support a larger size.

Pp1020 harddrive


Hi doug160451,
Could you please post the specifications of your laptop, but if your laptop originally came with a 5 Gb Hard Drive then chances are it would be an old laptop and you would do better upgrading to a new laptop than go through the problems associated with upgrading only your hard drive. 
Cheers

Hard Disk upgrade


Figured this out...
1)  Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2)  Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3)  Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4)  Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5)  Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1)  Flip the caddy over 2)  Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3)  Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4)  Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

What size drive is in it now? The user manual should tell you what size drive it can use. If you are not sure, the best thing to do is to go back with the same size. The brand does not matter. Is your hard drive IDE or SATA? What is the model of your laptop?

Adding Memory To My Laptop


Ok I have the same exact model you do and I have also upgraded my memory, Use a pc2700~DDR 333~SO-DIMM RAM. I upgraded with a simple 512mb chip and it worked wonders, The motherboard can handle up to 2gbs but trust me its not neccesary. also the memory will go in at a 45 degree angle then once it is snug in you will push it down flat till it clicks, feels wierd doing it I know but thats how they are. Also the hard drive is very easy to change, but I would recommend you going with a "western digital 'passport' external usb HDD" I went with the 120 gig and its awesome. The backup software on the harddrive it came with is very worth keeping. Also not sure if you knew this already but that laptop has a 'SiSm760GX' Motherboard and it is supporting the AM2 processor class :) . read up on it here, http://www.sis.com/pressroom/pressrelease_000212.htm anyways hope that helped you and good luck. :)
