Hi there , i have an acer travelmate 6592 laptop , the original 80 gig hard drive crashed , and i dont have the recovery disc , the hidden partition wont re install either , i have bought a new 320 gig...


You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

How do I choose a hard drive for an upgrade?


You want to make sure you buy a Serial ATA hard drive as for storage space it depends on what you use it for. if you save a lot of pictures and other files you might want to go with a 320 gig or more. other than that if you are just looking to replace the current one and I would order a 160 gig. But make sure it is a Serial ATA when looking. I like seagate and maxtor for hard drives.

I have a motherboard that has only has one ide conncetions


what you should do is make the 300 gig as second drive and your primary drive is the 80 gig so that you can view and back-up the contents inside it. If you going to install a new copy of Operating system that would be in the 80 gig so that you don't need to format your 300 gig and make it as second drive. Hope this could help you..Thanks..

I have a panasonic cf-51 with 40-gig drive. I want to upgrade the drive with something at least 160 gig. Do you have any drives available? What spec should I be looking for?


Basically, any EIDE interface hard drive will work, if you buy a new drive, just make sure to use the included software to boot the laptop up with in order to initialize the new disc and make it useable on your system.

To upgrade my Asus Eeepc 4G


The only way you can add space is for you to use an external HDD because an Eee PC has a built-in hard drive that cannot be upgraded.

Changing HHD on Averatec 5500


Hi Sunergos!
Replacing the drive is real easy! Diconnect the power and remove the battery. On the bottom of the laptop, lower right hand side, you will a panel, with one screw. Remove the screw, and lift the panel. The drive had a plastic pull tab on it. Lift up gently, and pull to the right. Don't lift too high. The drive will come right out. The Drive is held in a "tray" with four little screws. Remove those, and place the new drive in the same way. Just reverse the procedure, to install it, making sure the pins line up the with the female connector. Hint - wait 10 min or so before putting the drive in, or it won't recognize it. Newegg has a 120 gig drive for that lappy for $74. Upgrading my Averatec 5500, I ended up with a 3400+ CPU, 1 gig ram, and a 120 gig harddrive, that dual boots to Vista or XP, and is just as fast in either OS. Good Luck!
