Reformat laptop

To reformat Hard Disc Drive you can use software from the hard disc manufacturer. For example Maxtor, Seagate, Toshiba, Hitachi or Western Digital. Usually your HDD will be made by one of those. It's downloadable free and can be burnt to a CD. Alternatively use a Windows installation CD. If you want to reformat all data will be lost so you'll need to reinstall Windows (or another Operating System) anyway.

Remember that you'll have to get the drivers for that particular model of laptop and install those too, that could be difficult to do unless you have the driver CD that came with the laptop.

I have a toshiba satellite a75-s229 i want to add more hard drive space. how much can i? and what model?

You can virtually add any amount of hard drive but I would recommend you to keep it low from 512GB. A 320 GB hard drive in my opinion is a very large one and should work out perfectly.
For the model you can install any company's hard drive until its appropriate to the type you have.
I personally would recommend SeaGate. I have had a very good experience with them.

Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me for further assistance.

I want to change the hard drive on my Gateway MT6705

Before physcially changing a hard drive, you need to know a few things such as:

Windows by default only recognizes a RAW ( new blank hard drive) up to 150 gigs, anything past that wont be seen. Because of this, if its over 150 gigs, you will need to slave the hard drive to a working computer, then use a utility to partition the drive. Seagate and Western Digital both have such programs and they are free from ther eweb sites. The manufacturer of yurs should also.

Once youhave done this, back up all you info from the original hard drive onto a Data DVD or Some other External device such as a Pin drive or external USB Hard driv or similar.

Then, install the new Hard drive ( provided it is the right kind for the laptop) and then boot into the windows CD and begin install.

Now typically, you want to use the CD that came with the laptop because it has all the Drivers you need and is the best way to do it.

If you donr have it, then you will have to install a fresh copy of windows and will aslo have to go online with another computer and download all the driver and burn to a CD or put on a Pin drive, then install them on the laptop manually.

If you ave any other questions, please ask, You may have many so its up to you to tell us what they are as you go along.

Good luck.
