Can i put a usb external hard disk drive on to my netbook and would it make the memory bigger how much bigger can i make it .


Hello,
It really depends on the capacity of your external hard disk. If it has a larger capacity compared to the one on your notebook, then yes it will make the memory bigger.. Take note, we're talking about memory or storage space and not memory as RAM.
if you want to improve the speed of your notebook then we should talk about RAM Memory. If that's the case, you need more RAM and not hard disk.
Please also remember that notebooks can handle only one hard disk. So, if you want to put your external hard disk into your notebook, you will have to remove the other one.
Regards..

I have aemachine w4620 with 80g hard drive and 1g memory, can i upgrade my hard driveand will it takemore memory?


Max memory is 2GB. The stock hard drive is an 80GB ATA/IDE type, 4200rpm - larger ones are available in 100G, 120G, 160G, 320G, and .. I believe 500G. So the answer is: both can be upgraded or, more precisely, replaced with higher capacities.

How can I change the original HDD with one bigger


If you clone the 160G drive you will always end up with a 160GB drive. COPY {instead of IMAGE or CLONE} the 160GB contents to the 500GB drive and you'll have lots more room on the 500GB drive.

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.

Hard disc


The drive needs to be re-formatted and re-partitioned to allow for the new capacity.

I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd


Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.

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.
