You can go as big as you want. just make sure you get a hard drive that is compatible.

one quick thing, i do not understand what "i can not get it to scan anymore it freezes up" means. If you can access windows at all the hard drive isnt dead. It may be on its way out though. So go buy a new hard drive the GB size doesnt matter, you can put what ever size in it that you want.

Good luck, hope this fixedya

What size hard drive goes in a micro atx bry essential 466c


It doesn't matter what size the drive is (in GB, not physical size) and anything over 20 gigs or so is acceptable for just checking email and using office. You will need an IDE drive and just in case you were asking for physical dimensions they are standard for PCs... 3.5 x 5.79 x 1.03 inch

Specs for a Hard Drive


Anything you have should fit in there, you will have to upgrade the operating system, but the hard drive shouldn't be a problem so long as the computer is new enough to auto configure the hard drive.

I have a Gateway computer (flexatxstc bro essential 566c) to which I would like to add/update the memory. I know it is very old, but is that possible?


Yes, it is possible. Go to
www.4allmemory.com and they will list your needed memory, and the cost. Replcing it is very easy. Your computer takes the 'PC100' SDRAM module. and runs about $23 per 256mb with a maximum of 512mb.
Hope this helps

What ram does a Gateway flexatxstc bro essential 733 take and how


There is an easy way, and there is a hard way. The easy way requires you to get access to her computer and download Everest Home Edition. After installing the application open it up and find out if you're currently using SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, or something else. You will have to match the memory in order for it to work together.

Now for the hard way. You will need to find a way to open the computer to take a peek inside. Pop out the memory stick(s) by opening the pins holding the memory shown in this picture. Afterward look at the bottom of the memory stick(s). You're looking for the noticeable difference between DDR and SDR as depicted here.

Once again, you will need to match the memory types to ensure that they will work together. Also, please don't insert an odd (3, 5, 7, etc...) number of memory sticks (1 stick being the exception), some motherboards can't handle it.

Let us know what you find out. All the best in helping out ***********-in-Law!

Gateway Flexatxstc BRO Essential 700c


884f672.jpgBasically in the way of wiring if it fits it goes there. There is nothing to jam. The picture shows PS/2 ports the one closest to the edge is the keyboard port the one next to it is for mice. Your best bet for an operating system is to purchase XP Home, you may need to upgrade your memory to keep up with XP. But price it out first it might not be cost effective.
