Buying a hard drive for the Averatec 3200 Series

Now I know that a similar question about replacing the drive has been asked (and I know I will use it), but can anyone confirm that the Averatec 3200 series hard drive is simply the standard 2.5" notebook drive that I can purchase at Newegg or any other pc supplier? I will be sure to take photos of my process and post them on FixYa (assuming I'm successful) If any one has any big tips in replacing the hard drive, I'd appreciate them.

Re: Buying a hard drive for the Averatec 3200 Series

I have a tip. Don't forget to set up the drive as master or slave (depending on what you want the drive for). I personally have forgotten to double check this on numerous occasions (its always the simplest thing you overlook with everything) only relizing when I have the case screwed back on and am trying to boot the drive up.

I replaced my averatec 3200 hard drive 40gb with 110gb.. does it affect the the whole system? coz sometimes it suddenly shuts down... and one more thing, whenever i run NFS game, the graphics is too...

the hard drive would cause the problem if the hard drive was bad, like if it had bad sectors on it and it couldn't write info to certain parts of the hard drive.

System shutting down on its own could be spyware or a bad hard drive would cause that as well.

As far as graphics are concerned make sure your video drivers are installed cause if there not then the graphics wouldn't be as good. Make sure you get the latest drivers from the averatec website.

If your worried about the hard drive, put in another one but make sure its a new one so you know you have the best chance of it working properly.

My averatec series 3200 notebook cant detect my usb device

The flash disk could be faulty, especially when it draws too much power, and this will cause the USB ports to shut down and the other USB devices won't work until the faulty device is removed.

Installation cd

The installation cd is on a seperate partition of your hard drive. If you are wanting to reinstall everything follow these instructions
I have the same computer.
You dont need a disk- but do the following:-
1) Turn on your computer. 2) Press F4 repeatedly until you see the recovery program 3) Click - application on the left pane 4) then follow instructions on screen. That it.

If you need a file off the cd let me know!
