There is usually a door or slide panel on the bottom of the machine. But I have to know this. If you do replace it do you know which kind to buy? Do you know how to format it and install the operating system? One other thought, some hard drives are located under the keyboard. If you locate the drive you can determine the kind to replace it with by looking at the connector. One the hard drive are there two rows of pins surrounded by a rectangular box? One pin should be missing. Or are there two flat connectors, one being bigger than the other and both having a downward pointing slot? If this is the first case then you'll need to replace it with a 160G IDE drive (or less). If this is the second case, it's a SATA drive and you can replace it with whatever size you can afford. When you're ready to install the drive and the operating system, email me.

Need nec versa e 6000 motherboard faulty . where i can buy the motherboard?


it is not worth it to purchase a new motherboard for around 200$ when you can buy a brand new computer for just a little bit more.

You can have your files moved from the old hard drive to the new laptop by a professional or you can do it yourself if you aren't a complete dummy with computers.

To do it yourself you would need to first remove the old hard drive from the old computer ( NEC ) and then buy a external hard drive case for it that fits to it - there are 2 sizes, 2.5" and 3.5", probably 2.5" hard drive and then there are 2 types of connectors, IDE and SATA. SATA has a flat connector, and IDE has around 40 metal pins sticking out of it.

buy the appropriate USB caseing for it and then connect it to your new computer, you can transfer your files from it to the computer, after you have done so, you can keep the old hard drive as a external hard drive, for backups for example.

How to enable Secondary IDE in NEC VERSA M400


I presume you have bought a secondary hard drive and want to fit it to your laptop.
Firstly fit the new drive, it then needs to be initialised, this can be done by running Control Pane, select Administrative tools, select Computer Management. Run Discmanagement and find the new hard drive, initialise it and format it.
That should solve your problem.

A friend gave me this Nec Versa LX laptop with '98 on it. Yes I know it's old but... I wiped the hard drive and found all the RIGHT drivers for Windows 98 SE. Everything is running well except I get no...


Wipe the drive again and then install Linux Lite on it. Then everything will work fine. Be sure to install the i386 version so there won't be any compatibility issues with hardware.

Was given a second-hand versa LX..


Get a copy and install windows 2000 professional with the service pack 4, the most XP-compatible OS. You'll need 256MB of RAM minimum for everyday/internet use or it will run slowly.
Then install your normal apps, firefox, MSN Messenger (V7.5, not LIVE), office 2003, etc.
Some MS apps (Like office 2007, MSN Live messenger) will ***** about not having XP, just install an older version.

You might be able to set up wireless via the USB port.
