I'll put it like this; The fact that it's and Ultra ATA 100 interface and that it's a 5400 RPM drive is somwhat of a concern.. Don't know if your laptop will support the 5400 RPM speed, but the good news is,it won't hurt your laptop to try it.
Also, I don't think the Ultra ATA 100 interface will be a problem, maybe require you to change BIOS setting (maybe).

Installed 1T seagate hard drive as an internal backup but copmuter ( Windows 7) does not recognize. what should I do?


I presume you set up this hard drive as the second hard drive. You can do these:
1. Disk Management (check if it is readable):
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management (please run as administrator; right click it), Disk Management. Is this hard drive info exist in this screen? If it is, then the hard drive is not bad.

2. If necessary, test and fix it using Norton Utilities (download and run it):

Purchased my Seagate June 6, 2008 and have used it just a few times with my Win XP. I recently bought a new PC with Win 7 onboard (naturally). Now I want to transfer (copy) my music and photo files from...


Certainly, any files that you write using Windows XP will be able to be read with Windows 7.

I'm not familiar with the CEEDO program -- did the author update it for Windows 7 ?

Seagate Hard Drive 40 GB ST9402113A


Hard Drive: Seagate has a downloadable diagnostic program which can help determine the defect. My experience is that once these things fail, it is best to replace. There used to be repair centers where you could send hard drives, but with the low cost of new replacements, it isn't economically feasible. Data recovery is expensive, should you desire that. Google for repair/recovery centers if you want to check out those routes.

Keyboard: It looks like the built-in keyboard is defective. Repair of the original is doubtful. Unless the laptop is old, you might be able to obtain a replacement from the manufacturer. I have replaced a few laptop keyboards in Gateway machines here at the college where I'm employed.

Seagate 320GB


It could be that it's formatted as NTFS, which Win 98 probably can't recognise. Problem is FAT 32 can't deal with drives over about 80 GB. There may be software patch out there to allow NTFS on Win 98, or (only solution I have used), you could format it as several partitions, including at least one FAT32 for your machine to see.
