Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Dial-up problem I have three hard drives in my PC-III and all can dial-up the internet with no problem. But since early this year my two hard drives with Win 98 2nd ed. is having a problem with the dial-up. Whenever I attempt to use it, it freezes and needs to be re-started. Have change modems three times and have un-installed and re-installed thee drives for each modems to no avail. They are proposing to format the hard drives, instead of re-installation the OS. Got lots of software, updates and others in those hard drives not to mention personal file that will be forever lost. Any alternative suggestion that you can offer. By the way, the newest modem installed is a Hawkins. And this modem works fine with third H.D. with Win XP-Pro with S.P.-2. Thanks, Henry J. Talento, Jr

Replace hard disk

Any 2.5" SATA hard drive will work (2.5"=notebook size).
SATA III (three) is what you want.

I would use Carbon Copy Cloner, or SuperDuper to copy your drive. Borrow a friend's USB or Thunderbold external hard drive bay to attach the drive until you copy your original drive. Then just swap the drives, and your MacBook will boot on the new drive.

All the best to you,

Please tell me if I can install this SSD drive in my Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop. What is the difference between SSD SATA II and III

A sata 3 SSD on a sata 2 PC will slow down slightly to sata 2 speeds, and vice versa. But this is usually acceptable since any current model SSD is much much faster than a normal hard drive so even installing a slower model SSD will be a big improvement. Its analogous to a porsche 911 and a volkswagen beetle. The 911 is faster than the beetle but both are much faster than horses.

your laptop has a normal hard drive. Most SSD's except apple SSD's are the same size and have the same connectors so 99% of the time it will work. you can see pictures of the SSD and compare it with your current hard drive

We have a two year old Acer Aspire PC and it has started making a growling noise. It changes pitches especially when you open a new application.

Most times growling noise is a hard drive working hard. The longed you have it the louder it gets. For 2 years is little early but possible. Also it can be a fan kicking on that might have to be cleaned. There is nothing else that makes noises in the pc. If it is hard drive you can try to do defragment on it and also check and repair from CyComputer the right click on C: drive and click options and then there is a tab that says tools and then check now. Do this and it will make you reboot just click yes and reboot. Hope this helps.

Modems are used for dial up connections either to the internet or for faxing. Dial up internet is almost obsolete, faxing is still used with modems, mainly in the business world, but it too will soon be obsolete. I'd say that modems will no longer be a part of any computer with in the next three years.
