Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. (That one came with Win98, right?). A decent 20GB should do if you're using still windows 98. Your BIOS should have a list of drives to choose from but it should be alot more than the 4.8GB drive that comes with the laptop.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...


The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

What is max size HDD for a Dimension 8400


As far as I know, there is no known maximum size. If you are making it a slave drive, you need to go into your system's BIOS and tell the computer you have a new HDD.

Restart your PC, and you will either need to hit your F2 key or Delete key repeatedly on boot. Just watch the top right corner of your monitor to know which button to hit.

Once you're in BIOS, just move to the hardware section or hard drive section and make the necessary changes.

Reboot and enjoy!

HDD capacity greater than 128GB with Acer Travelmate 2300


ive had a look on the acer website and there is a replacement bios available , but theres no mention if it would enable large Hd support , rather than flashing your bios and potentially destroying your laptop i would purchase a external drive , you can get the enclosures for 10-20 pounds and fit a decent size HD in this

Hello,
Your particular model of laptop will allow up to 2GB of memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
As for the hard drive, I believe the standard 2.5" drive is compatible in any size you'd prefer.
