there are too many with the same number. but from looking at them they mostly the same hdd can go upto 500gb ram max 2gb or 4gb with new model sata hard drive model has no limit but that may just be it has not been updated as 2tb hard drives are out and will need a a bios update to read them but there may be an uptake out there for that.
It should. But RAM slots have a maximum RAM per slot. Have you checked with manufacturer manual to see what the max ram per slot is? And the max ram per motherboard matters too. Your mobo will only support so much ram.
The PI845Z is, unfortunately, limited to 2GB RAM max (DDR 266/333 RAM). As for the hard drive, it does not seem to support SATA hard drives, but if you can find a 500Gb IDE hard drive that should be fine :)
Hi, Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either. I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: - - K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance. - Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance. - Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance. - Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%. - Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required. Hope it helps! Good Luck! CreativeTECH
Most newish laptop HDD now can be upgraded up to about 500GB should be fine if you google harddrives or look on ebay you should find one that you want weather it is sata or ide
just make sure that you check what sort you have before you buy
Well depending on your bios version, it could be an array of things.
First try removing the video card and re-seating it.
Then re-seat the RAM.
If the problem persists re-seat the CPU.
Let us know the exact model of your motherboard so we can better troubleshoot your problem.
When you turn on your computer the system does a POST (Power On Self Test). If the POST sees an eror it will tell the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and the BIOS will beep a code or display a code that indicated the problem.
Different motherboards contain different BIOS versions. BIOSes use different beep codes for problems depending on the manufacturer.
Depends what kind of motherboard is. You may want to check with a different IDE ribbon cable. Make sure that the IDE controller is ENABLED within BIOS. Set the HDD as Master - see those jumpers next to the power and data connectors. Try with another (IDE) HDD and see if the controller is working. Don't asume the 1st HDD is working OK, you never know ...it may be broken now ...
