It will be a 2.5" hard drive, the 3.5" hard drives are for desktop computers.

If you are intending to put a larger hard drive in your laptop, I suggest that if you have not got drivers for all the devices on your laptop (video, audio, LAN, modem etc.) then download them from the ACER WEB site and burn them on a CD, you may need them after you install Windows.

If your old laptop hard drive is OK then you can use this as an external USB hard drive for data backup/transfer etc. You need to buy a USB 2.5" hard drive case and mount the hard drive in this case (waste not want not). Don't forget to delete the operating system and other unwanted files from this drive, or just format the drive.

What is the maximum size of hard drive for the travelmate 2300


Hello,

Please keep in mind this unit uses IDE hard drive instead of SATA. The default 2300 uses a 30 GB high-capacity Enhanced-IDE hard disk. With latest BIOS upgrade, this unit will be able to have anything installed. 80GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, 500GB.

However, I believe that IDE hard drives are slowly but surely becoming obsolete and legacy and they seem to be more expensive as well.

My laptop acer travelmate 290 hard disk failure?


Your laptop harddrive is not responding the problem is internal. There may be many causes
1) Your IDE may have problem
2) Your SATA cable may have problem
3) Your have drive MBR may be lost
4) Or there may be problem in the internal chips or condensor of your laptop for this reason harddrive of your laptop is not responsing.
So my suggestion is that you may consult a good laptop reparing farm.

Acer TravelMate 2303WLCi


Hello,
Your particular model of laptop will allow up to 2GB of memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
As for the hard drive, I believe the standard 2.5" drive is compatible in any size you'd prefer.

Laptop powers down when it moved


It's definitely something internal. Could be the DC jack or a loose connector hard to tell unless you open it up. You should take it to a tech for diagnosis.
