    Depends on what your pc specs are... see with each motherboard you can only upgrade so much, also the parts are hard to find for older pc's. It depends ENTIRELY on what you currently ave.

You need to give more infor on the Pc's you have. Intel or AMD if you are not sure about the specs do the following ( windows xp)

1. click start/all programs/accessories/systemtools/system information
2. then a new window will open.
3. click tools & click directx diagnostic tool
4. this will open another window with all the specs of the pc

Error ID = 0xC00D11BA, Condition ID = 0x00000000

Reinstall the driver for this card. Somehow it got corrupted. Go to devices delete this device and restart computer. Make sure that you are set to get driver updates online always. The computer during the reboot will find the driver. If it requires the disc and you have one place it in the ROM let it fly.
If not working after this go to the manufacturer web site and see if there is an upgrade download the upgrade and go from there. Because of the various things one does to their machines if upgrading or just everyday usage things fail. Know one is fail safe.
So it is not a bad issue or anything you did, it is a machine it does what it does when it does it. I just reload drivers that is what I do and problems are solved unless the device that is giving the error message has gone bad. Then replace the card with a compatible one or the original one they are not that expensive. Hope this assists you. John

My computer says "No hard

One of two things is probably the case:

1. Your hard drive is missing and a new one will need to be installed.

2. Your hard is not missing, but it has become loose and either from its housing or where the housing connects to the laptop.

Please give a detailed description of the manufacturer and model of your laptop so someone may give you clear detailed instructions for how to check to see if you hard drive is either missing or if it has come loose somehow.

I'm running my laptop on win XP and I've got a problem with my CD/DVD-ROM somehow my system doesn't recognize it there for I can't use it, but I really want to upgrade my OS to Vista as originally my...

Here is what I suggest. I would go ahead and upgrade your OS. Windows Vista actually has worse performance than Windows 7/8/10. I recommend installing via USB flash drive.

If you really can't get your hands on an upgraded OS. Here is a link that might help you to resolve your problem: No CD Rom drive in Device Manager No error reported by XP Windows XP

Otherwise I think it might be a driver issue. If you could supply the product serial I could point you to some proper drivers.

I have an old packard bell D1000 multimedia intelpentium, 133mh prcessor,1.2gb hard disk,32mb ram.33600bps modem 8x cd rom, what can be upgraded if any. I only use it for grandchildren but would like to...


Most likely, more RAM (memory) will help. That computer can hold a maximum of 128MB or RAM.

The EDO memory for that computer is no longer manufactured.
[72-pin EDO SIMM]

Used memory and possibly non-moving inventory are available.
Any such memory would be at a much HIGHER cost than current memory. (64MB is around $50)

I know you didn't ask for a recommendation; however,
1.) I recommend that you NOT upgrade the memory.
Even if the computer is upgraded to the max, it will still have similar performance issues.
Here is a link to a memory supplier;
or google: ""packard bell" d1000 memory"

2.) Consider a $275 Compaq computer from Office Depot - fully modern computer with DVD / CD, 2GB memory, Windows 7, AMD processor.
I know that's a lot of money for the purpose; however, it may be today's best bargain.

What is your question? No, these components are not integrated, but everything is attached. If this person cannot find this out for you, do not trust him to upgrade it.

Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-831S ---upgraded drive in Toshiba laptop now doesn't work

First, before you pull your hair out, try these and see what happens:

1) Can you get into safe mode? F8 at Windows startup will get you there. If you can get into safe mode, go to Device Manager and find the Entry for DVD/CD-ROM drives. If there is an entry under that, highlight and uninstall it. Reboot and see if Windows will reinstall the drive with no errors.

2) If option #1 isn't feasible, try actually removing the drive. Check the bottom of the laptop case to make sure there are no screws holding the drive in. If not, eject the CD tray, then pull gently but forcefully to get the drive to come out of the laptop. Boot into Windows and see if you still have any errors. If so, it's not the CD drive causing it.

I'll be happy to continue troubleshooting with you. Let me know what you find out :)

Ze4325us laptop...hard drive upgrade.....

I know the original question is over a year old, but here it goes for those just tuning in. Your HP ze4325us can only recognize a hard drive that is under 137.4GB. If you try to install a hard disk larger than 137.4, your computer will start to fail over time. I would recommend a 120GB hard drive, ata-100 / ide / eide, and spinning up around 5400 or 7200 rps. It would make your task easier. If you want to go bigger, use the hard drive manufacturers disk utillities programs (check manufacturer website) to partition and format before installation. So, if you were to puchase a 160GB drive, you could partition it at 137.4GB and 22.6GB. My advice, make it easy and just find a 120GB drive. Less hassles!
