I have a acer aspire 3684NWXMi series with a 80 GB hard disk drive and want to upgrade to the 320 - 500 GB do I have to buy a certain make or brand for it to work in my laptop?


According to this review there is no optical drive, (CD/DVD drive),

http://www.naaptol.com/laptops/acer-aspire-3684nwxmi/P/779.html

The new harddrive is blank. No Operating System on it.

No Windows.

After a person installs a new harddrive, the basic procedure is to use the Restoration Disk, and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

No optical drive.

[No Restoration Disk is NO problem. Contact HP Support.
In the US it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have more info for US, and other countries if you need it ]

This means you will go through some 'changes', if no optical drive.
More than I believe you may wish to take on.
(Don't want to overstep myself, or seem rude)

The next thing is there may be a harddrive limit.
Might be capped at 135GB, and not allow a 300, or 500GB harddrive.
If this holds true the harddrive is then partitioned;

300GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 3 partitions, of 100GB each; or 4 partitions of 75GB each.

500GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 4 partitions of 125GB each.

Fools BIOS into thinking there is just a 75GB, or 100GB, or 125GB harddrive; instead of a 300GB, or 500GB unit.

Yes. More headache if you may not be adept.

I suggest using an external harddrive instead.

Just my thoughts,

Is it possible to use windows 7 on a ibm thinkpad x40 ? (1.5 gb ram 1.2 ghz) I have only a 40 gb harddrive in my notebook so i want to install windows 7 on a extern harddisk. What about the speed?? thx


Hi,

Yes Windows 7 should go well on that laptop although the aero glass feature may not work unless there has been a workaround.

You may also find it a little sluggish because of the lack of proper video drivers but Microsoft may well have one sorted out by now.

Saying that Windows 7 is far better than Vista and seems to be more stable than XP at the moment.

It would be certainly worth checking out because you have more than enough RAM for Win 7 to run.



Regards.

Bought 2130 from work . The IT person there removed both hard drive and the shuttle in which the hard drive is loaded, need specs on replacing these Model #'s a drawing if possible. I have a samsung model...


Ask the IT person for the shuttle/carrier for the hard drive, it does not affect the company's data. You can also ask the IT person for the details and hard disk capacity so you can purchase a replacement hard drive.
This model Compaq uses a 2 1/2" IDE hard drive probably 20 to 40 Gb capacity, It is near impossible to purchase one with this small capacity, you might get a 80 Gb capacity or higher.
