Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

I will like to upgrade my laptop to the maximum capacity presently it uses 50G HDD 256*2 DD R CPU SPEED IS 1.5GHZ AND CPU TYPE IS Intel celeronR(M)


well the mother board is hard to tell what processors it supports, maximum memory that it can fit is two 1gig chips, one in each slot, for a max of 2gig. thats all the system will support. the hard drive is optional as far as the size needed. largest it will fit is a 500gig HD, look on www.tigerdirect.com . that celeron processor is old, and small, it will be hard to find another thats any better, it sounds like its a xp system that may be upgraded..

You can upgrade it as much as your system supports it.First check your system capacity of expansion of the hard drive's space.You must know the maximum capacity of the hard disk on your system .
Thanks.
Have a great day.

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM MEMORY CAPACITY THAT MY ASUS A3AC CAN HAVE? WHAT TYPE OF MEMORY WILL GO INTO THE ASUS A3AC? What maximum hard disk size can the ASUS A3Ac running Windows XP can have?


max memory is 2GB ddr2 533 also known as pc4200.
If you dont have sp1 or later, 137gb is the maximum HD your system will see. If you have service packs installed then you can have as big a HD as you want. You may need to use a disc partitioning program to get the full use out of large HD's

Thinkpad T42 Hard Disk problem


Hello.

It seems the hard disk size will max out at 80GB with a 5,400 RPM speed according to IBM.

Im sorry to say that this means that it will not support a 120Gb hard drive.

Regards...

Want To Replacing My Toshiba A10-S330 Hard Disk


Hi,

Normally you can upgrade to a new hard disk to the next bigger size, so from 40 Gb, then perhaps a 60 or even an 80 would work. Even if the BIOS/motherboard would not recognized the new size, Windows XP would and be able to access it.

However, I don't think that the size should really be the main concern. I think that your selection should be based primarily on the power consumption. Most laptops have a preset power distributed to its devices. If you are going to use a bigger size HD with a bigger power consumption, Windows (or even your BIOS) might recognize it but the power distribution might be over worked.

My suggestion would then be go to the next size but keep in mind the power rating/consumption of the old when selecting.

I am enclosing an image of my laptop's HD. Pls note the rating DC+5V 0.7A for this 60Gb HD. The 0.7A is its current consumption/rating.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

FireLite FWFL40 - need to upgrade the HD


Hi, Your basically correct, the only requirement is to physically fit the enclosure (2.5inch), other than that, hard disk capacity is a matter of your personal preference/need; Toshiba is one of the better brands. Others are Seagate, Maxtor to name a few. I guess it's a matter of who can provide better after sales support. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
