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.

Machine turns on and indicates it is in warm up but nothing happens after that and it never heats up or moves on to next cycle

On your perticular model, the PREHEATING mode can last a full 5 to 40 minutes before any mixing of the ingredients begins. I say IF your breadmaker does not begin to mix the ingredients within 50 full minutes it would be safe to assume your machine has a defect which can only be fixed by replacing the entire machine with a new one. Hope this helps.

Hi.. please help i have a pioneer hard drive dvr-520H. i love it and have never had any problems over the years. but just yesterday it froze up on me when i was trying to watch a recorded show. now when i...

That sounds to me like the hard drive has crashed and it can't find the required "hand shake" from the drive, hence taking such a long time to initialise and then showing rubbish. Unfortunately fitting a new hard drive to most of these machines requires matching hardware to firmware and that is achieved with the use of a "Service Remote". So fitting a replacement drive may not fix it without matching the new drive with the special remote.
If you have a Pioneer Dealer in your area, get them to estimate the repair and weigh it against the cost of a replacement.
Hope that helps.

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.

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.

New motherboard for the T2862

you probably won,t get it to boot off the original hard-drive. As that will be mated up to the old motherboard.
i,d suggest putting a new hard-drive in, then transfering any required data to the new drive, you should be able to transfer most of your files accross, but will have conflicts trying to copy some windows files. as they,ll be in use by the system.
