Re: External HDD

The answers are maybe, and yes.

If your internal hard drive is nearly full then adding an external hdd and transfering some of the files to it will free up space on your internal hdd and potentially improve performance.

You can install programs and store files on the external hdd. Obviously it will need to be connected in order to run these programs and access the files.

Hello i have a dell mini 910 and it has no space on it. i've heard of dual booting. how could i save, install, and run programs from an external hard drive

using an external HDD doesn't require dual booting.

First connect the external drive, and copy files to the drive that don't require and applications to be installed (MP3s, Avi Videos, Pictures)

Then you can delete the files from the HDD, this will immediately give a boost in performance. Generally, most games run a an Atom powered system don't take a great deal of space, so moving applications to the external drive likely would not be gratly beneficial as keeping data files there.

Dual booting by the way, is the process of installing 2 operating systems on a computer and being able to boot to more than one version. (Windows XP and Vista for example) of Windows and another OS (XP and Linux)

Need To Upgrade Or Somehow Add A New Graphics Card

There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:

However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.

If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.

I need to upgrade my internal hard drive, what exactly do I need to get the most storage for my Toshiba Notebook Satellite A135-S4666? I would like to have 500gb or more of storage.

There are two kinds of hard drives and you must learn which one your computer has. To do this, Turn the computer off, diconnect the power chord and remove the battery. Locate and remove your present hard drive.

If the connection end of the drive has two plastic covered connection locations, you have a SATA drive.

If the connection end has more than 40 pins, you have an IDE drive. There is no way you can confuse the two types.

Go to your favourite computer parts source (ebay, web store or real store) and buy the largest drive that they have and that you can afford. Install the drive and install your favourite Operating System.

The largest IDE drive is 320 GB and the largest SATA drives I've seen are 500 GB. Best of good computing with your new drive.

Is it possible that the laptop is currently set to use the external monitor instead of the default one?
