Yes, it can be upgraded for a larger drive. The important specs to know are the physical size and the interface. The size that this computer needs is the 2.5 inch and the interface is the SATA. These are the typical size and interface used today so finding a drive that fits should not be a problem.
Hope this helps.

Often when a battery is real flat, it hangs up the entire system. What you need to do, is remove the battery completely, as the laptop should be able to be powered by the AC adapter itself. You may find if that is the case that your battery has gone bad, and you will have to replace it. If your laptop, will NOT work from the AC adapter, then either the adapter is faulty, or there is an internal vault, in the Power conditioning circuitry inside the PC. Try another adapter, if still no go, then it is definitely an internal problem.

Have you tried removing the battery and putting it back in?
Does the laptop boot when the power cord is plugged in? With and without battery?
What does the battery charge icon in the task bar (down by the clock) show?
These are the first steps I use when troubleshooting a charge problem.
If none of these yield a solution than it's time to look deeper. And it *may* be a problem with the motherboard or more specifically with the charger port or board. The next question would be, is your laptop still under warranty? Laptops are not fun to take apart.

it could be that the connection jack on the mainboard has been dislodged from the solder joint, common among Gateway comuters and HP units too. is the DC jack loose from the notebook ? if so thats the issue it seems. You will have to bring it to a computer person to resolder. if not and youc an do it yourslef, save money -- but be careful not to damage anything on the mainboard.

Testimonial: "Good to know but when I first look at the Jack it look good and soild, I went and ordered a new one anyways and will relook at it just in case, someone said it might have somthing to do with windows 7 software in the device manager battery control method."
