Based on The Spec's of your System you have a 250gb Hard Drive however the Maximum size will be less then that due to formatting the drive so you can expect that to be like 10% less then 250gb (just a guess) plus a lot of computers come with a restore partition which is usually around 12gb assuming you leave it factory stock.... Your computer by default will set your Hard Drive to the Maximum size... now as far as how big you can install the sky is the Limit your computer is new enough it should except any size Hard Drive available at the store.

Virtual memory settings


Windows XP




1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Advanced tab. In the Performance section, click Settings.
3. Click the Advanced tab. In the Virtual memory section, click Change.
4. The hard disk drive that is used for virtual memory will usually be the
5. same disk drive that Windows is installed on. Both the Initial and Maximum settings should be less than the reported Space available on the hard disk drive. The Initial size setting for the virtual memory settings should be approximately 200 MB in size but should be higher than or equal to the recommended paging file size as indicated in the lower section of the screen.

Once the initial size is set, Windows will reserve this amount of space on the hard disk drive for virtual memory and it will not be available to save information on.

The maximum amount allowable can be anything above the Initial size setting, but it is recommended that it be at least twice the Initial size setting

How do I choose a hard drive?


It depends upon where the hard disk is to be installed, ie. in a desktop computer, in a laptop or in an USB hard drive case.

A 3 1/2 inch hard drives can be a IDE/PATA or a SATA type. Older computers use IDE/PATA hard drives and the maximum size you can install in a desktop depends upon the computer's BIOS.
SATA hard drives are generally used in later model computers and the size of the hard drive is not limited by the BIOS.

A 2 1/2 inch hard drives are used in laptops and are available in IDE/PATA and SATA types. The size and limitations of IDE/PATA hard drives also apply to laptops. The same applies to SATA hard drives.
The choice and size of hard drive depends upon your requirements and how much you want pay.
Don't forget to check BIOS for the maximum IDE/PATA hard drive size you can install in your computer.

What's the maximum hard drive I can install in a Compaq SR1420NX I have a 80 hard drive right now I want to install a larger one. Will this computer handle a larger Hard Drive


The BIOS has a max. hard drive size limitation. Check the manual for the maximum size the motherboard can support.
If the maximum size hard disk it can support then you can add a second hard drive in the computer as a SLAVE hard drive to double your disk space capacity.

Copy memory on HP L7580


sounds like you need to change your virtual memory settings or buy more RAM.
Here is how to change the settings:
I am assuming you use WINXP

  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then click Properties .
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Performance section, click Settings .
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Virtual memory section, click Change . Both the Initial and Maximum settings should be less than the reported Space available on the hard disk drive. The Initial size setting for the virtual memory settings should be about 200 MB, and should be higher than or equal to the recommended paging file size shown in the lower section of the dialog box. When you set the initial size, Windows reserves on the hard disk drive the amount of space you designated for virtual memory. The maximum amount allowable can be anything above the Initial size setting, but it should be at least twice the Initial size setting, as shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: The Windows XP Virtual Memory settings c00174885.gif
  6. Based on the information above, make any necessary changes to the Initial size and Maximum size settings.
  7. Click Set , and then click OK .
