Hdd upgrade problem

Hi,I'm upgrading the hdd from a cluncky 40gb drive to a 300gb seagate barrcuda 7200 drive on a ga-7vtx motherboard via kt266 agpset, the old drive has windows xp home however the new drive has win xp pro pre installed, when the pc boots after post it has no problem finding the new drive but cannot start the os, Is it possible the bios/cmos needs upgrading, I did put the new drive in as a slave to the old hdd and when running it was found as a 2nd drive no problem,also i've put the hdd on another pc and again it booted into xp pro no problem.

Try reversing the connections so the new drive is detected as the primary master.

I bought a new 500gb sata hdd to upgrade my ps3s old 40gb one and after formatting it my ps3 runs slow meaning I cant play any games, any ideas why this is?


Make sure the new hdd runs at least 5400 RPM. A 7200 RPM drive is a little better (or a Solid State Drive if money is of no concern).

I have a 4 channel Sunluxy H.264 Network DVR, I have fitted a 300gb HDD but although the system is working and I get the 4 cameras on screen the message I keep getting on boot up is HDD not found


Guys this one stumped me for some time, here is my solution that worked like a dream

1. plug the hard drive you are using into a pc and check the hard drive is recognise and works.
2. Delete all partitions
3. ensure it has a 8 bit cache buffer!! This is the most important one. That means the system only supports older hard drives. I got 2 second hand ones from the local pc store for $50. See the list of hard drives that are know to work below.

MANUFACTURER MODEL CAPACITY ROTATION
ST3320613AS 320GB 7200 rpm
ST33500320AS 500GB 7200 rpm
ST3750330AS 750GB 7200 rpm
Seagate
ST31000340AS 1000GB 7200 rpm
WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 rpm
WD5000AACS 500GB 7200 rpm
WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 rpm
WD7500AAKS 750GB 7200 rpm
WD10EADS 1TB 7200 rpm
WD15EADS 1.5TB 7200 rpm
WD
WD20EADS 2TB 7200 rpm
Maxtor STM3500320AS 500GB 7200 rpm
STM3750330AS 750GB 7200 rpm
HITACHI HDT725032VLA360 320GB 7200 rpm
HDS721010KLA330 1000GB 7200 rpm

FYI for some reason the person I bought this off online "Ebay" had no idea how to support and I could not get support from their web site as they email they give just bounces back.

Cheers.

Hello. I recently installed Windows 7 64bit Ultimate edition. I was initally unable to access my seagate external HDD. I tried to take ownership and played around with the permission settings to no avail...


It may be the USB chipset on the motherboard that needs a new 64bit driver downlod. I used Driver Detective to update my Intell chipset when I upgraded to 7 now all my external drives show up. Try using other USB ports on your computer first to force the computer to reload the driver for the new port.

1. Has anyone installed 2Gb RAM memory in a Sony PCG-TR3A? please give details of memory specification. 2. Has anyone installed a HDD bigger than 40GB? please give me details of HDD specification.


Hi,
You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.


Regards.

Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!

Older motherboards like the one in your laptop may have a size limit on the hard drive. Maybe there is a bios update for the laptop to fix this issue. you will find that at the manufacturers website under downloads/support.
