    My Satellite Pro C850-10L has a 320 GB HDD and I want to upgrade to 500 GB, which are the specifications I have to consider for buying the new HDD?, remember, I want one like the one that came factory installed, but with a bigger capacity (500 GB or more). My laptop Part N? is PSKC9E-00600 MCE.

Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

Max hard drive size for Toshiba Satellite 2430-S255


Unless you are running Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 and your drive format is FAT16/32 and not NTFS, there should not be any problem with a high capacity drive. Don't make the HDD size too big: it may be costly. If you have money to burn get two drives, one internal system disk, and the other an external storage/ backup drive.

Toshiba Tecra A9 Model: PTS52A-0EW03F. Can i upgrade the graphics card, if i want to install dedicated card there is option or not. I also want to upgrade hard disk and Ram please advise me i can upgrade...


Laptops have built-in graphics card on the motherboard and cannot be replaced with a different graphic card.
You can upgrade the RAM to 4 Gb and install a larger SATA hard drive.
This WEB site gives the specs of this laptop.

Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

Toshiba Satellite Notebook M45-S351 I recently purchased an upgraded hard drive - 160 GB Samsung Spinpoint and upgraded the RAM (Crucial 1 GB, bringing the total to 1.5 GB of the allowable 2 GB). Impetus...


Remove thwe new RAM and hard drive. Does it boot to the BIOS menu? If yes, add the hard drive and do the same again then add RAM and do the same.
I suspect something does not fit in properly. Probably the RAM.
Don't forget to initialise the hard drive if trying to format it. The System disk should take care of that.

Hello. i have the toshiba satellite a200-28n and would like to replace the harddisks at 5400 to 7200 rpm.the types of disk are two mk2046gsx 200 gb each one.what harddisk can i choose for...


The maximum size hard disk you can install in your Toshiba depends upon the BIOS. The BIOS can support a hard disk up to a certain capacity. Check the specification of your model Toshiba to see the maximum hard drive it can support.
An alternative -
You can use an external USB hard drive and connect it to your Toshiba and not be restricted by the BIOS. You can use USB hard drive 500 Mb to more than 1 Tb.
The other advantage of using an external USB hard drive is you do not need to install Windows, the device drivers and your programs on the new hard drive.

I need to upgrade my internal hard drive, what exactly do I need to get the most storage for my Toshiba Notebook Satellite A135-S4666? I would like to have 500gb or more of storage.


There are two kinds of hard drives and you must learn which one your computer has. To do this, Turn the computer off, diconnect the power chord and remove the battery. Locate and remove your present hard drive.

If the connection end of the drive has two plastic covered connection locations, you have a SATA drive.

If the connection end has more than 40 pins, you have an IDE drive. There is no way you can confuse the two types.

Go to your favourite computer parts source (ebay, web store or real store) and buy the largest drive that they have and that you can afford. Install the drive and install your favourite Operating System.

The largest IDE drive is 320 GB and the largest SATA drives I've seen are 500 GB. Best of good computing with your new drive.

Replacing M35-S359 motherboard with one from S320?


If the M35-S320 case is OK and the M35-S359 screen is OK and will fit the M35-S320 then I would swap the LCD screen lid and inverter over to the M35-S320 including the hard drive from the M35-S359.
It would be less work and with luck it might boot up, if not you might be able to do a system repair, worst case, you will need to reinstall Windows. Plus you have a spare drive from the M35-S320 which you can use as an external hard drive with an USB hard drive adapter case.
