Re: hard drive

Hello Kidbuick,


Me is thumu, I have seen your information on Hard Disk.


Well, your notebook supports only 120 GB Harddisk that is inbuilt in your Notebook. You cannot install or it does not supports for harddisk more than 120 GB. So I recommend you to use external harddisk of 300 GB, which comes at price of $149.99 .  I suggest you to use HP 300 GB Personal media Drive.


You can visit below web link to purchase it:


I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A75-s2762 laptop. I am looking for a compatible hard drive to replace the original one that has failed. I would like the largest hard drive that will successfully work with my...

With that model you need a PATA hard drive. You can go as high as 320gb hd in that laptop. Now the higher the GB the more it costs and well that is up to you. I personally would stick with a 160gb 5400rpm drive for decent size and decent speed.

What is the maximum size of hard drive for the travelmate 2300


Please keep in mind this unit uses IDE hard drive instead of SATA. The default 2300 uses a 30 GB high-capacity Enhanced-IDE hard disk. With latest BIOS upgrade, this unit will be able to have anything installed. 80GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, 500GB.

However, I believe that IDE hard drives are slowly but surely becoming obsolete and legacy and they seem to be more expensive as well.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen

Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

Upgrade this notebook

Yes you can upgrade that notebook.

The notebook is sold with 1GB DDR SDRAM which is upgradable to 2GB RAM, 2 slots 1x1GB in each slot.

The hard drive is usually 120GB SATA which you can put any drive in up to 320GB or 500GB (if you can get on of that size)

The processor is a core duo. It is upgradable but i wouldn't bother with that as 1.6GHz is more than sufficient.

Ze4325us laptop...hard drive upgrade.....

I know the original question is over a year old, but here it goes for those just tuning in. Your HP ze4325us can only recognize a hard drive that is under 137.4GB. If you try to install a hard disk larger than 137.4, your computer will start to fail over time. I would recommend a 120GB hard drive, ata-100 / ide / eide, and spinning up around 5400 or 7200 rps. It would make your task easier. If you want to go bigger, use the hard drive manufacturers disk utillities programs (check manufacturer website) to partition and format before installation. So, if you were to puchase a 160GB drive, you could partition it at 137.4GB and 22.6GB. My advice, make it easy and just find a 120GB drive. Less hassles!
