you might be able to find a compatable upgrade ssd but remember ssd's are just basically chips on a pcb not like an old "record player" hard disk drive,which also has more moving parts and is likely to fail at an earlier stage due to this.Also ssd's are shock proof which gives them the advantage

SOURCE: I have a CN5560 laptop with a 40 GB ide hard

I would say not, the other solution is complete rubbish and makes no sense. The current crop of SSD's are very expensive and are usually SATA not PATA (parallel ATA) which I assume yours is. I would upgrade to a non SSD drive of around 120gb for a good price performance ratio.

SOURCE: I have an Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop and it has two 750GB hard drives. I want to replace one if these two by an SSD hard drive. So my questions are: What kind of SSD hard drive do I need for this lapt

Dual drive, uhm? You are looking for a mSATA. All that matters is the connection. So, yes you can.

However, being that this a new machine, why would sacrifice so much space? You won't find an 750GB SSD card, and expect to pay about a dollar (USA) per GB. That means a 120GB drive will cost you over $100. - Just my 2 cents.

SOURCE: I see your point. But if I decide to place an SSD hard drive and leave the other one inside, would Windows 7 read or recognize it? It is not an SSD hard drive. Please answer ASAP

Yes, windows will detect the other drive. You'll just have to reformat if you want to use it as a data drive or whatever.

Sony vgn-z520

Usually, it is not possible to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. In rare cases where it is possible the upgrade usually costs nearly as much as a new laptop.
However, you can significantly upgrade the laptop's performance by adding more memory and by replacing the old slow hard drive.
Your Sony VGN-Z250 is usually supplied with 3GB of RAM memory. You can replace the existing memory modules with a new kit consisting of 2 x 2GB modules (total 4GB). The type of memory you need is "SO-DIMM" (meaning laptop size) DDR3 - 1066MHz (you may use 1333MHz memory but it will only run at 1066MHz speed). I would suggest either G-Skill or Crucial brand memory. And you can replace the hard drive with an SSD. You'll be amazed at the boost this provides, seriously. I would suggest either Samsung 840 EVO or Sandisk Ultra for an SSD. Both offer super-fast performance compared to your old spinning hard drive, and both have very low power consumption so they run cool and give your laptop a few extra minutes of battery power. You can clone/copy your existing Windows setup onto the SSD using free Macrium Reflect software or free software from the SSD maker's website. Or, you can do a fresh install of Windows.

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

Ssd won't show up as destination drive.

I'm not sure this is your problem, as you question isn't descriptive enough. But here's a solution if I do understand your question correctly.

When I have installed new hard drives in the past, I did the physical install, turned the computer on, and they just worked. Not so with SSDs I've installed. After the physical install, the SSD does not show up in the "Computer" window with all the other drives; because it's not FORMATTED.

Navigate through:
Start > right-click on "Computer" in the right pane > select "Manage" > in the left pane select "Disk Management"

All the drives will show up in the main window, including the SSD you just installed. If it does not show up, there's a problem. Maybe one of the cables isn't fully inserted, or there's a defective cable, or a defective SSD.

You can tell the SSD from the other drives by the Gigabyte capacity, and also by the fact that it does not have an assigned drive letter (e.g. C:). Also, it's named something like "New Edition".

To continue to formatting, navigate:
Right click the SSD > select "Format" > select "Quick Format"

A drive letter will be assigned. You are given the option to change this letter if you want. Also, you are given the option to name this drive. This name will appear with the drive listing in the "Computer" window. I simply used the name "SSD", however if you want something more discriptive or colorful, it's your computer, it's your SSD, you can name whatever you want.

The other format option is for when one is installing a used HD which may have bad sectors. That option scans for bad sectors, and takes a LOT longer to format. Not necessary for a new SSD. Plus, you can scan a drive for bad sectors anytime with the "chkdsk" command.

The SSD is now ready for use, including for use as the main drive. Windows will happily load onto this drive.

Sony vaio vgn-fz21e upgrade solid state drive

If you are looking to upgrade to a solid state drive, or already have a solid state drive and just want to upgrade the size, you will have to purchase the new drive, when you receive the drive you will have to turn the notebook over and there should be a rectangular panel underneath about 5"x3" inches which can be removed by a small Philips head screw driver, remove the panel, carefully remove the hard drive installed, and install your new drive. Put all the parts back, and then you will have to do a clean install of an operating system on the new system. Good luck!
