Check first if your new one is compatible with your pc then you'll have to find the hard drive on your cpu once you find that remove the cord attached to it and you might need a screwdriver to remove the old drive then after you removed it, just the same as you did this time backwards insert the new drive then open the system then go to bios setup that blue screen press del or f1 check the config find the harddrive if it's configured properly

hope this helps

Hi,

We could say that it may be caused by overuse, but you can still do some checks and upgrades to get it work faster.
A laptop with freshly installed Operating System should not run supremely bad as to say. One cause that I could think is a failing harddrive. A harddrive with bad sectors normally causes it to run very slow. You could do a harddrive diagnostic test for this case.
As for upgrades, you can check your laptop manufacturer's website to see the maximum memory (RAM) and harddrive capacities that you computer can handle.
You can still get your laptop work as expected though you need to still consider the types of program you are running on it.

Hope this helps.

I have Dell XPS 420 , with windows home server running for some time. I tried to insall/upgrade RAM from 3 gb to 6 gb. So, i found the right RAM (2x2GB) and removed the two old 512 mb from the slot and...


According the the dell specification you can only install up to 4gb, so I don't understand you saying that you were upgrading from 3gb to 6gb. Make sure that all the ram that is installed is of the same brand and speed (667 / 800 MHz Dual Channel Dual DDR2 SDRAM). The fact that it is saying no boot device also would suggest that it is possibly something wrong with your harddrive, whether it was corrupted or damaged while you were changing the RAM, if you have a spare harddrive try installing and booting from it. If that doesn't work it could be a motherboard issue, which the BIOS should be update, all the jumpers on the board should be checked etc. Its rather hard to diagnose a problem such as this, and the fact that after you installed the new RAM, even the old RAM would not work, suggests that you may have damaged something while messing around in the computer.

I want to be able to Mirror or RAID-1 on 2 different drives, then break the mirror and mark the second drive as an active boot drive. After looking around online, I realize that this process is more...


I understand now, and appreciate your taking the time to clarify.

1.Make a backup disk of the current harddrives contents. This is a Restoration Disk.
Has the basic needed files for the Windows O/S, (Repair), but will also allow for a Full Installation.

2.Desktop, not laptop:
Install two harddrives, put them in a RAID1 configuration. Forget about the 'mirror' image program. Leave them both in there in case of a harddrive failure.

3.Laptop, not desktop:

A.There are some laptops that you press a key, or certain keys, when installing a new harddrive, when the old one has hardware issues, or viruses render it unusable. These key/s are pressed, BEFORE the old harddrive is removed. Allows replacement of that harddrive.

There are some laptops that Do Not! There is a workaround.

The above is to replace that harddrive, and may be used to upgrade to a larger harddrive, IF, certain criteria is met.

B.Use an external enclosure, insert the new 2.5" harddrive. Connect the external enclosure to the laptop via the USB port.
Now use an image 'mirror' program such as DriveImage XML, (Free), to copy over the image of the old harddrive to the new one.

Insert the new harddrive into the laptop. You can use the old harddrive in the external enclosure as a Slave drive.
Still only allows THOSE harddrives, to be used on THAT laptop.
Don't be surprised if you have to Re-Activate the O/S on that harddrive. (New one)

C.RAID configuration on a laptop = No
You only have one interface connection for a harddrive, Generally.
IDE, or SATA
(Some gamer laptops use two hardrives internally. These are already configured in a RAID 0 configuration. More storage space. However, if one harddrive goes kaput, all information is lost. I do not believe you are referring to one of these)

http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm

The above is only for reference. I have no working knowledge of this program, just know of it's existence.

How to retrieve folder contents deleted during an uninstall


To recover pictures from your harddrive you can use the program found [here].

It's a try.before-you-buy program, so you have a couple of days to try it out for free before you have to buy it. I presume you don't need more time than that.

Before you download and install, think about using another harddrive to save the file to, and to install to, since installing it on the same harddrive as you stored your pictures on isn't so good. If your unlucky, the program can install on the same space on the harddrive as the pictures lay, and in doing so, make it harder to get back the pictures.

Cheers
