Question about HP OmniBook XE3L PC Notebook

Larger HD I'd like to replace the 80GB HD with one quite a bit larger, and cannot seem to find relevant data on the USA-pages of Acer's website. Any suggestions? I already "rightgraded" the thing from Vista to XP... (what a relief!)

Hi,

Most hard drives of any brand would fit inside your laptop. The size is likewise "free for all". Though the rule of thumb would be "go next size higher" making a 120 Gb a logical choice. There is nothing stopping you thou in installing a 250 Gb or higher.

Good luck and kind regards.

I only get two HD cheannels with an amplified HD antenna. How can I get the scanner to find more?


That may be all that are in range. You will have to look up you location on Antenna finder. That will tell you what HD channels are available, the direction and the distance. The type of antenna matters quite a bit as well. If you have an Omni directional that sticks to your window then you will only have about 25 miles of reception. A larger directional one will get you up to 125 miles. You may also need a preamp depending on signal strength.

I have the HD version and playback seems grainy still. Is that normal...? Was thinking that is should be ultra clear since it is HD.


Not all HD is alike. The sensor size on the Flip is quite small and thus, the HD quality on the Flip will be less than on a larger HD video camera.
If you suspect there may be something wrong with your quality, the best thing to do is to go on websites like Flickr.com and Vimeo.com and look for videos done with the same model you have in similar lighting conditions. If the quality of other users' video is better than yours, there may be something wrong with your sensor, in which case, you will need to contact Flip's customer support to have your camera repaired or replaced.

How can i get all my info from old hd to new one including os


If you've experienced trouble with your old hard drive, forget what I'm about to say here--you'll just end up copying bad data (including a corrupted OS) to your new HD.
Ok, having said that, if you're just upgrading to a newer, larger HD, and want to easily copy EVERYTHING, including Windows, to the larger one, first, go out, and buy a new one (yes, @Best Buy, or sometimes Office Depot or Staples has the 'best deals'), with this in mind:
Your laptop will only recognize a maximum of 120GB of space, so don't buy any larger (160GB and up) or they will all only show 137GB for your boot drive (although you can still accept that, and once done, merely download this freeware to create a new partition and use that as if it were another drive 'D:').
There are now only two major reputable dealers--Western Digital and Seagate ('cause Seagate bought out the third biggest, Maxtor, years ago).
Hard drives are one of the most justifiable new purchases, because 100% of them come with better hardware warranties than the ones do if you bought a brand-new laptop right now!
Seagate often sells theirs with a full-on 5-year replacement warranty, and Western Digital sells none with less than 3 years, so the $50-$100 you'll spend is more than worth it in a laptop.
Now, for the reason--those new HDs all come packaged with a software disc with Acronis' 'True Image' software, which will do all the work for you, perfectly, the very first time, as long as you follow the on-screen directions, and have the 'new HD' plugged in to your current laptop as an external drive--for that, you'll have to have a laptop IDE to USB enclosure (as in this link). They have 'em at Best Buy, but much more $$, I saw $39 online, so ...cheap may be fine, esp. if you only plan on doing this once!
Anyway, the software does the rest, immediately reading up that you have a new drive connected (after you install the CD), and actually asks you if you want to copy it (and you do).
It then performs a sometime lengthy bit-to-bit copy (you're legally required to kill off the old one or never use it again, by Microsoft's standards, remember)...and you're done--new, larger HD, with all your data AND Windows OS on it! NOTE: Sometimes this process requires that you reboot once again into your old hard drive with the new one still attached, to finish out!
Once this is done, you turn off your laptop, remove it's battery, then replace the old hard drive with the new one. If you've never done this, it's a lot easier than you'd think--Dell still offers this little method online at the following link>>>>>>>>CLICK HERE
See? Not hard at all!
Once you're done, and start the laptop back up, you'll see it act like it doesn't even know the difference, except you have more drive space.
Remember to download that freeware above (Partition Wizard) if you bought a drive larger than 120GB, because you can then make a new 'data' partition and use it to the max of that actual drive!

Replace the hard drive with a drive that is the same type and the same size, or larger. It will rebuild itself.

By same type I mean that the connector on the back of the drive and the speed of the drive interface must be the same. If the new drive spins at a different rate it will not create a problem, except that if it is slower it will make read/writes slower. If it is larger it will only use part of its capacity, matching the capacity of the other drives.

Note that if you were to replace all drives with larger drives (one at a time) the capacity of the entire array would be the same as the original. If you want a larger array it must be built from the start with that larger capacity.

Take out the bad drive. If you can get the exact same drive, do it, otherwise look it up on the manufacturers web site to find out size and type.

While there are a few possible RAID configurations that you could be using on that server, the chances are overwhelming that it is RAID level 5 that you are using. This RAID level is tolerant of a single drive failure. If you lose another drive before your new drive rebuilds your data will be lost. Hopefully you have a backup.

RAID 5 stripes the data and the parity data across all available drives and when a drive fails, the missing data is rebuilt on the fly from the parity data. When a replacement drive is installed the parity data is used to rebuild the data that belongs on that drive. The advantages of RAID 5 are fault tolerance (of a single drive) and speed because each drive only has to provide or write its portion of the total data being accessed or written.

Hard drive


If you already have an 80GB installed, more than likely you can go as big as you want. There used to be a restriction because of the data built into OS's and hardware, but no more.

HDD replacement for Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114


should be no problem adding a larger hard drive....If I were you I'd compare some prices of Hard drives and choose the one thats suits best...you're not restricted to toshiba hard drives either....advantages of installing a larger hard drive really relate to what you use the laptop for....if you store lots of music or have lots of big programs then a larger hard drive makes sense....also you'll find it easier to get a 60gig hard drive than a 40gig as that size of drive is quite rare nowadays

If these are original hard drives, they are probably corrupt or have gone bad.

You can order a replacement (upgrade) drive or just software and make your own from:
