It should take 2.5 IDE HDD up to 80Gb without any problem, bigger than this might not work but it should be able to run 120Gb but I have not tried. MURRAY the MAGNIFIENT

The laptop uses a e-ide hard drive so any ide hard drive should work fine in the laptop

    yes that would be fine, seagate drives have a 3yr warranty and is a good brand

Installing new hard drive in a aspire 5736z


Yes you need to install the operating system back to your computer and you also need to install the drivers and the programs on it. New hard drives are blank.
After installing everything up, don't forget to add a premium anti-virus. That's very important. You should also add a tech software like RadarSync so that you won't have to worry about getting your computer's drivers updated.

My lap top says that my hard drive is going to fail


You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.

Ive installed 160gb seagate 2.5 ide hard drive in my acer 2303lc when i put in recovery cd it says invalid system disk,replace the disk and press any key but when i press the key nothing happens ,its a new...


Hey,

Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?

I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.

If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.

also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Iriver H320


Apparently most of the Mp3 players use a common garden variety Lap Top Hard Drive like a Toshiba etc. I have a Friend who replaced his in a Creative Zen. So Either take it a a reputable Laptop repair firm or simply pull the back off and check it out yourself. I haven't down this yet because I am still trying to Back up the contents of my H320 before it fails completely. When you pull the back off it should have a small hard drive just clipped into it using a wiring connection similar to a Laptop. Find the numbering and get a compatible replacement. The you may need to download a Firmware update as an exe file from IRiver and put this in the bas directory of the H320 and run it. THis sets up the necessary software. You may even be able to put in a larger hard drive 40 or 60 gb as they are all the same price depending on your budget. Let me know how it goes as I will be doing the same job shortly.
