Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

I HAVE LAPTOP IBM THINKPAD T30 AND I WANT TO CONNECT HARD DISK 80GB OR MORE


  • Supported HDD thickness:
    • 12.5 mm for systems without the touch pad
    • 9.5mm for systems with the touch pad
  • Standard 20GB, 40GB, 60GB HDD sizes.
    Note:
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as marketing option part number 08K9688 has a height of 12.5mm and will not fit in the HDD slot of the systems with the touch pad installed. For these systems, it is only supported via the ThinkPad 2nd HDD Adapter for the Ultrabay 2000.
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as replacement service part number 08K9833 is 9.5mm.
  • Supports one additional HDD which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage utilizing the Ultrabay 2000
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface
  • 4200 or 5400 rpm
  • Although you can upgrade the HDD, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 HDD adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000 IBM says. I say if the OS recognises it and so does the BIOS, you're good. good luck, hope this helps.-jmattes p.s. I found this info on: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42218.html

X41 HDD


It makes no difference what brand of hard drive you have in the laptop, the original is going to cost you maybe 2 or 3 times or more the price of a generic drive.

Need to know the type from the laptop (4numbers) and also model, they are on the bottom sticker most likely.

post the details and I'll see what it can take.

Thanks

How to install bigger HD in IBM 300GL GL PC? Any limitations?


Is it IDE or SATA? Put the Hdd in your pc, on IDE, the wide ribbon cable is for data, it can only go in one way, and power is the molex connector. 4 power points, ussualy 4 wires. orange, black, red, black, yellow. can only go in one way. thats it. Make sure that if you are running cd/dvd roms and you have 2 hdd's, that the two hdds run on the same ribbon cable, and the cd roms on their own cable. also put the new hdd to slave. (you change it via jumper settings, ussualy printed on the hdd itself)

SATA is easier. you need two cables. sata power, and data. they can also only go in one way. google sata connectors if you don't know how they look. though, if i is a PIII board, i doubt it'll support SATA, so you'll need to buy an IDE hdd.

Goodluck

Dell Latitude C610 PC Notebook Problem


Hi,

With your indulgence may I clear something, you installed a new 60Gb HDD to your Dell Latitude C610? If yes, then you would need to partition, format the new HDD and install an Operating System.

If on the other hand the 60Gb is the original HDD, then it could only mean that the HDD is defective or that its files have been corrupted and likewise would require an re-install of a clean, fresh OS. In some instances, a repair could be done but the same would need the use of a recovery CD or a Windows installer of your choice.

There would be no limit to the capacity that you can install. The only limitation would be the physical dimensions and the way it is electrically connected internally to the laptop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
