Question about Hard Drives
Hi I have a IBM Thinkpad 390x Laptop which has broken haed disk drive and I would like to upgrade to a larger one is this possible and how do i know how big i can go that will fit both the bay and compatible with BIOS
Here is a link that will give you all the updated bios and drivers. In this there is a link for Bios Update (Diskette), you need to follow the instructions there. The BIOS upgrade is usually these steps.
As for new parts for your computer, you can find them here. This link tells you how to update the HDD and the 9.5 mm HDDs are availble. There are 30GB or 40GB hdd.
It's possible to go higher, like night71 describes, but if you want to keep it simple, this might help.

Sorry to but in with this one. I have a 300GB drive and works great with Windows XP. I had to format it on a MAC so Windows recognized the large size. Sounds funny but if you can find a MAC, then your problem is solved.
