Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.

This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

Can I upgrade my 80 gb intel core 2 dual hdd to 120 on flybook V5

Hi there, yes you can upgrade your 80GB to 120GB hard drive on your Flybook V5. Toshiba makes a great drive for this. If you need instructions or help however, I was able to get all my questions answered by emailing . I could not get through to anyone at Flybook directly however. :o(

HDD Upgrading


Of cause you can upgrade the hdd to 160GB, the system will detect it, don't worry.

Meanwhile, make sure you have the drivers ready for all the hardware, as new new hdd need to be install with a new windows, and u will need the driver for all the hardware to function properly, like wifi and video.

In case you lost your driver disc, here's the link for you to download

Your rate for my solution is much appreciated, thanks.

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.
