the one you would want is the ST3160023A-RK and is $69.99 new. Seagate drives are renowned for quietness, speed, a LOT of bang for your buck...good choice.

more specs on that drive:

    that hard drive is a 2.5 inch form factor laptop IDE hard drive - inappropriate for a desktop computer - slower and more expensive!

    the one I suggested is Ultra-ATA (which is PATA which is IDE) and fits in his Sony Vaio desktop PC.

    since the original Seagate series he has tops out with a max capacity of 80GB (his drive) and the age of his PC suggests that SATA would not be an option, a 3.5 inch internal 7200RPM 8MB buffer Ultra-ATA/IDE (they are the same thing) hard drive is a good choice.

I have aemachine w4620 with 80g hard drive and 1g memory, can i upgrade my hard driveand will it takemore memory?


Max memory is 2GB. The stock hard drive is an 80GB ATA/IDE type, 4200rpm - larger ones are available in 100G, 120G, 160G, 320G, and .. I believe 500G. So the answer is: both can be upgraded or, more precisely, replaced with higher capacities.

What's the maximum hard drive I can install in a Compaq SR1420NX I have a 80 hard drive right now I want to install a larger one. Will this computer handle a larger Hard Drive


The BIOS has a max. hard drive size limitation. Check the manual for the maximum size the motherboard can support.
If the maximum size hard disk it can support then you can add a second hard drive in the computer as a SLAVE hard drive to double your disk space capacity.

Can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB? 80GB 7200rpm SATA SAMSUNG


This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My hard disk capacity is 80GB. It is seagate barracuda 7200.9, it is showing 32 gb instead of 80gb. I dont know how to fix this, but reading some experts answers i came to conclusion that this is a jumper...


Indeed. The problem is that you put the jumper and it limited the capacity of the hard drive to 32 gb.

Here is a picture that will help you put the jumper in the exact place:

Additional hard drive needed


Just buy a new SATA HD of what ever capacity fits your budget. Keep the old one as it works with your setup. There is no point causing extra work for yourself.

Power off the computer. Conenct Power to the drive and a SATA cable to the new drive (should be supplied with it) and the motherboard. Power on the computer and then format the new drive. The drive letter will be assigned by the Operating System. Once completed you have a new drive to use.

Bigger hdd for sony vaio pcg-f309


You can use 20/40 Gb hard drives. the BIOS may be too old to support the 60/80Gb hard drive.
The only problem is, that it is impossible to purchase new hard drives of these capacities, the smallest capacity available now are 120Gb and larger.
You may be able to get 2nd hand drivers, but you won't not know how long they will work until they fail, probably doesn't matter, they should be cheap.
