    They are both IDE and I want to replace one with the other.



    At what stage will I be required to give a "password lock" - (boot up, in the BIOS) ?

I am using K8S MX Motherboard with OS-Windows XP. but my hard disk is not working. i want to purchase a new 160gb IDE hard drive. please tell me if it supports 160gb hard drive or not


The specs for this motherboard say it has a Utra-DMA 133, and 2 SATA 3Gbs ports.
You can connect any IDE HD, and any SATA 3 or lower HD. These standards are backwards compatible. When it comes to size, there is a 2TB MBR limit.
I would skip IDE and go directly with a SATA 3 drive.

Installed new WD HDD (160Gb) into Toshiba Satellite A10-S167. Entered BIOS edit, but can't get laptop to recognize the new HDD (which replaced a smaller, failed HDD)


Shouldn't have any problems on the A10 series working with a 160GB drive, so long as it's an ATA/IDE type with a 44-pin connector. If it's not recognizing the drive, could it be that the pins were not precisely lined-up with the IDE connector? I'd remove the drive, make sure the pins are still all straight, reinsert it into the HDD compartment and see if it makes a difference.

Can i install mcafee anti virus on my toshiba m40x that is 6 years old


I don't recommend this antivirus, even a good free a/v is better. Try avast, you can download it from download.com it is very good and I recommend to my customers as free option. Now, if you can afford $40 at year your best choice is norton antivirus. Before you install any antivirus you MUST uninstall any previously antivirus from your machine from control panel.
