Yes you may be able to,but it depends on some things and how you want to add them.

if you want to have them as an internal device ,ie in the case and always available with your operating sytem, then you need to know what conection they require to be plugged in. some examples are sata,ide,scuzzi.most latest hard drives are sata ,the most popular are ide though.im guessing you most likely have ide hd's.

good thing with them is you can connect two harddrives on the same ide cable.you have to set 1 up as master the other as slave.this is done by adjusting the jumpers on the physical hard disk.the jumpers are located on the bottom corner of the hd next to the power and ide interface.their willl also be a diagram to show how to set master/slave on the hd in most cases.

benefits are more storage and speed but in the above case because you use the same cable for both disks.

if you dont know alot and are not confident in installing them personally and just require more space,i iwould suggest buying a cheap kit $20 ,and using your spare \hd as an external usb disk.

if ive assumed wrong or you need more help ,let me know

good luck and let us know how it pans out

Laptop C partition low disk space


Make sure your hard disk has enough space. Most often when the error massage comes it will tell you how much free space is required to install the game look keenly and know how much space is required then either move all media files mainly video files especially downloaded in the download folder to an alternative partition and only leave windows and installed program on Local Disk C. Other wise if your hard disk capacity is very small then am afraid that you will have to get a bigger hard disk.

I have 320GB hard dsik capacity. But yesterday i have given by laptop to format and install OS(Windows 7). But now i am able to see only 296GB. Please let me know what will happen to remaining space.


There are many reasons.......

Maybe you have available unpartitioned space left in the hard disk. To check this:
1. Right click on the "Computer" icon on the desktop and select "manage"
2. After the Computer Management window appears, select Disk Management. It should show you if you have any unpartitioned drive space.
3. You can up or format your unpartitioned spaces from hereon. may be your harddisk is corrupted and has space 296GB only
or sometimes all drives contains some space for system file in that space is hidden

I believe I have a virus or worm that Norton cannot detect


Ok. How much space do you have free on your hard-drive right now? (I'm assuming that you know how to check this).

If its low, then maybe you didnt free up enough space on the drive. If it is high however, then answer this: is the message you are receiving telling you that you are low on disk space? or is it telling you that it is low on virtual memory space?

if its low on virtual memory, then the problem could be many including 1) virus etc 2) a program is running that is using up more RAM than is avaivable 3) you need more RAM on your system.

if its low disk space, then the problem could be 1) You need to free up more disk space (that may mean getting a bigger hard-drive installed)

Try using an updated virus scanning utility. If it says that you are virus free, then try one of the solutions above.

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
