Adding a second hard drive

I have a PC based on INTEL 845 GLAD motherboard with a Samsung HDD of 30 GB capacity. I have now procured a 120 GB Western Digital HDD (SATA drive). However, I do not see any corresponding slots on the motherboard for adding this HDD. How should I go about it? Or is the motherboard incapable of taking on a SATA drive?

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    I am usubg 845 gvrs motherboard now I want to installed extra internal harddisk what will be ideal harddisk and size


    The size of the hard disk depends upon what type of programs you are running and the amount of data you need to store.
    Programs that create large amount of data are audio and video files.
    The tpye of hard drive depends on what type of disk controller you have, it could be IDE or SATA disk controller, you need to check your computer's hard disk controller.
    The average hard disk capacity is 160 Gb to 180 Gb and goes up to 1 Tb, but the largest capacity drive your cmputer can support will depend upon the BIOS.

    Looks like this unit is a couple of years old by the specs.
    160 to 200 GB would ba a good size to install in the unit.
    It is easy to replace the hard drive. Just remove the old one and install the new by reversing the procedure. Just make sure that the jumper is set to master( which is how the new ones come jumpered)

    Bigger hard drive


    I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

    If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.
