Question about Computers & Internet
How can i tell if my laptop will support a SATA1 and/or SATA2 Hard drive? Thanks in advance.
Basically, right now you can't put a 1.5tb disk in a laptop at all.
laptops use 2.5" disks which only go up to 500gb (i think 640 and 750gb ones are coming out around now, but you may have trouble finding them for sale right now.
the 1.5tb disks you see for sale are all 3.5" disks that will not physically fit inside a laptop chassis so the only way you could use one with your laptop would be externally with a 3.5" USB disk enclosure.
i imagine it'll be next year at the earliest before laptop hdd's will get that big, sory to disappoint.

Yes check in bios when you power up press F2 or del key to enter in bios.
Then go to advanced sata option.
Enable it if you want to use sata.
