You can install any brand 2.5 hard drive in your laptop. You do need to determine if you need a PATA (IDE) drive or a SATA drive. When you remove the drive and the adapter (if it has one) from the back of the hard drive, if it has pins then it is an IDE if it's just a circuit board with two "L" shapes then it is SATA. And yes, a 40 GB with Ubuntu is a good setup; however you can often find higher capacity drives for just a couple of dollars more, so do some comparisons :c) Good luck oh and if you could please come back and rate this solution with a fixya rating since I answered your question, I would really appreciate it. Thanks! :c)

IX250 no sound or touch screen


Type "itronix ix250 drivers into google" and click on the client care drivers link, this has all the drivers. Use ubuntu if you want, but drivers are harder to get for linux...

Factory reseting


Are you referring to a lockout issue with W2K, or are you locked out of the laptop via a Bios Password? If it's an OS problem, worst case scenario, you can re-install the OS. If it's Bios Password issue, try logging in with the Factory Password 'ix250'. Good Luck!

Cannot make windows CD Boot


The problems you see when trying to install this Win 98 old thing is just the tip of the iceberg of driver problems, crashes and what not.

May I suggest a completely different approach?
How about installing Linux ubuntu? It can work with any Microsoft Document, surf the internet and has all the drivers you need built in. It can even run some of Windows applications.
Give it a try, what do you have to lose?
