How to upgrade my laptop


Hi
There are not many ways to upgrade a laptop without expensive professional help, in which case it is usually more economic to put the money towards a more up-to-date model.
You don't mention your particular model so I will have to write generally.
The only user upgradable hardware parts are the hard drive, the RAM memory, and possibly the optical drive.
These can usually be accessed by the removal of a few screws and a cover on the base of the machine.
Hard drive. Options here are a bigger hard drive with more capacity, or a Solid State Hard Drive which will give you much higher speed of operation. You need to be sure of the connections and make sure the drive is compatible.
Memory. You must make sure that the memory module you get is compatible with your machine in terms of type, DDR, DDR2, DDR3 etc. and suitable capacity. Don't go above 4Gb if your Operating System is 32 bit.
Optical Drive. If it is already a DVD as is likely not much point replacing it.
In terms of software, the only real upgrade you can do is with the OS. Windows 8.1 is the latest Windows version currently available, and I would normally recommend the Pro version although the Home Premium version is also acceptable. Make sure that your laptop can run this and that you back up all your data before you attempt to upgrade your drive in any way.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Tip

NOTE IN UPGRADING LAPTOP


Easy to up-grade laptop

Upgrade with care: Support techs report that the most troublesome laptop components are the hard drive, screen, and keyboard. While you probably won't want to replace an expensive laptop screen, anyone with the right tools and even a slight mechanical inclination can replace the hard drive, keyboard, and other components, with some patient tinkering.

Opening your laptop case may void the warranty, so if your system is still under warranty, let the manufacturer deal with repairs. Notebooks are delicate, so never force anything. Vince Dougherty, who has repaired countless laptops for Wine Country Computers in Healdsburg, California, says the most common mistake is using the wrong-size screwdriver. One slip and your motherboard is ruined.

Before doing anything else, remove the notebook's battery and disconnect its power cord. Remember to ground yourself before you open the case, either with a grounding strap (the safest way), or by touching a piece of grounded metal (a lamp or water pipe will do), while touching a metal part on the case's exterior.

Replace your hard drive: Adding a new hard drive to a laptop is usually easier than doing the same thing on a DESKTOP PC : You just remove a few screws from the bottom of the case, slide or lift the hard drive assembly out of the system, and swap a new drive into the assembly (always handle drives by the edges).

Most notebook PCs use a standard 2.5-inch hard drive, but ultralights and other diminutive systems may use a smaller 1.8-inch drive. Drives also come in different heights; the most common are 12.5 millimeters and 9.5 millimeters. Check your laptop's documentation, or visit the vendor's Web site to determine the drive size compatible with your machine.

A 2.5-inch, 100GB drive costs less than $200. Third-party vendors such as Drive Solutions and NewEgg.com often charge less than laptop manufacturers. Check with your notebook vendor to find out whether you need a SATA or parallel ATA model. Buy only from vendors that offer a money-back guarantee--any reliable seller will provide one lasting at least 30 days.

Boost your RAM: Most laptops come with only one or two memory sockets, which may leave no open slots for upgrades. Adding memory may require that you discard at least one existing memory module. The RAM on most laptops resides behind a removable panel. The modules slip into a slot and are secured at the ends by clips or retainers. Crucial offers an excellent tutorial on installing laptop RAM.

Crucial and Kingston will tell you the type of RAM your laptop needs. The high-quality modules they sell are well worth the small, additional expense over no-name RAM.

Change your keyboard: Installing a new keyboard usually requires disassembling the laptop's case, but in other respects it is straightforward: First snap the old keyboard out, and then snap the replacement keyboard in. You can expect to pay $50 to $100 for a new notebook keyboard. Appropriate replacement keyboards may be available only from the notebook's vendor.

How to upgrade my Toshiba Laptop model - T4500


You can upgrade your laptop by installing more RAM and or installing a larger hard drive.
I suggest you use an external USB hard drive and this means you do not have to pull apart your laptop to install a larger hard drive also you do not need to install Windows on the new hard drive.

It sounds like your old laptop drive had 4 partitions on it.
If that is the case and you want it to be only one partition then you'll have to back up anything you want to keep in those partitions and reformat the drive as one partition.
You can reformat the drive using the Disk Management utility in Windows.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.
