The hard drive that is installed in the V20 laptop is a 30 Gb IDE capacity hard drive.
The smallest IDE hard drive that you can purchase today is in the order of 80 to 100 Gb capacity. The BIOS in the V20 may not be able to support a hard drive this large.
If you install a hard drive of this capacity the BIOS may not detect it or it won't allow you to access the full capacity of the hard drive.

I HAVE A LAPTOP THAT STARTS BUT IT TELLS ME TO INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM ON THE HARD DISK.


Sounds like a new blank Hard Drive, erased Hard drive or a faulty hard drive. If hard drives not faulty need to restore the original drives contents from a back up made previously on an external drive or DVD's. If you do not have the back up, then you need to load the original OS using an original restore CD / DVD's and then load all the correct and required drivers from the HP.com Site for that model PC and the OS (XP. VISTA. WIN 7 etc) you are using.

I just bought a Dell DHS computer without a harddrive at a yard sale, how do I install a hard drive for it


First you have to make sure you bought the right kind of hard drive (IDE or SATA) to make the installation and connection easier. IDE drives have a set of prongs or pins that stick out. SATA is the later type and does not have prongs or pins sticking out. You just turn the laptop over and remove the cover where the hard drive will be housed. Usually it will have an icon of 3 circular discs on it. Most laptops will also require a Caddy that the drive sits in before it goes into the laptop. And some might require a interface.

I suggest you look on ebay and see if your computer's make and model requires a hard drive caddy or interface.

http://www.ebay.com

In the search box just type your computer's make and model followed by hard drive caddy. Example: Dell Latitude D610 Hard Drive Caddy

In the search box type this is see if it requires an interface: Example: Dell Latitude D610 Hard Drive Interface

I have a Sylvania 7 inch netbook SYNET07526 with windows embedded CE 6.0 and we are trying to install Microsoft Office Professional 2007 via an external hard drive without success, please help!


I've got bad news: I don't think it is possible - period. Windows CE runs on an ARM microprocessor. And you have the exact same model netbook I'm using right now. Even if you succed installing that version of Office to an external hard drive and connect that hard drive by USB, this model number of netbook simply doesn't have to computing power (or possibly the right type of microprocessor, either). If you check the Minimum Requirements on Office Pro 2007, I think you'll see that it requires and Intel or AMD microprocessor. You and I are using an ARM propcessor :( Also, I was looking into the likelyhood of expanding the memory in this machine my wife just bought. It's a cute machine' but can not do as advertised. It keeps freezing when we log into Facebook. If I can't expand the memory, this baby is going back to the store. It'll be some little kid's first computer! Good luck!

Toshiba Satellite A215-S5849 Laptop - at boot up I hit F2 and it hangs never making it to the BIOS also fails to read from USB FDD or CD-ROM drive at power up any help


take out the battery and ac adapter for 5 minutes, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, plug back in the ac adapter and turn on, try entering the bios.

if the problem remains and since you are unable to boot from any device, you would either have to send this laptop to a repairer, or remove the hard drive from the laptop, use a adapter to connect it to a desktop machine or to another laptop and begin the windows setup on another machine, or install windows on another machine (may cause a blue screen when switched to another machine)

or make the hard drive bootable, copy windows setup files into the drive and install from the drive.

Hard drive replacement


Hi cloudsurfer,
Your best bet is to remove the old hard drive and check the brand name and model number and then go to the manufacturer's website online and look for similar models with the new features that you want.  Make sure there are the same physical dimensions.
A recovery CD will not install windows on a fresh harddrive, to do that you will require a windows install CD.
Hope this helps, and please take the time to rate!

Samsung v20 display keeps going i have changed the screen cable


The plug on the screen ribbon cable which connects to the motherboard has dry solder joints. Closing the screen and typing hard on the keyboard can break these joints very easily. All you need to do is re-solder the joints. This is a very delicate job and requires a lot of patience.
