Well i think you could get away with 120 gigs. if you go over that you should update your bios and run a utility like Big Drive Enable--

there are others out there though.

What is the maximum addressable disk size for a Dell Dimension 2350? I currently have a 120 gb drive partitioned in thirds (40 gb each) that I would like to change to 2 * 60 gb.


depending on what space you have free is your max, you can use any size you like but again it depends on what is your maximun disk size. hope this helps in some way.. for the size you have now 120 gb, u need at least 10 gigs for windows and programmes to install. so 110 is your max you can play with i think.

HDD capacity greater than 128GB with Acer Travelmate 2300


ive had a look on the acer website and there is a replacement bios available , but theres no mention if it would enable large Hd support , rather than flashing your bios and potentially destroying your laptop i would purchase a external drive , you can get the enclosures for 10-20 pounds and fit a decent size HD in this

Bigger hdd for sony vaio pcg-f309


You can use 20/40 Gb hard drives. the BIOS may be too old to support the 60/80Gb hard drive.
The only problem is, that it is impossible to purchase new hard drives of these capacities, the smallest capacity available now are 120Gb and larger.
You may be able to get 2nd hand drivers, but you won't not know how long they will work until they fail, probably doesn't matter, they should be cheap.

Ram upgrade


In most cases if you put of not thesame capacity in any computer later will create further problems. it can damage the other memory or both and the worse is when also the motherboard will also damage.

That is why im telling you this. Please prevent inserting memory of two or three different capacity. You should not do that.

You should select etheir use all 256mb or all 512mb or all 1gb.

in the T4200 since max. is 1.5gb, either use 3-512mb if can carry the maximum if not , then use only 2-512mb.

in T3624 since max is 2GB. You can try 2-1gb if can carry the maximum if not, use only 1-1gb.

Note:
You can use or inserting at different capacity but is at your own risk. "

Ps. does no matter either you put smaller or bigger in first slot.

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.
