New 200GB HD on my LG P1 Express Dual

I'm trying to update a new 200GB HD. But the computer keeps restarting. I've checked BIOS Drtup to ne sure it boots from DVD drive, but it does not access. The BIOS version is from 2006 so I assumed it should recognize the HD. Every time I reinstall the 100GB original drive it works asl always. With an external HD box I've checked the HD and it workd perfectly as an external one, but that's not the idea. Any suggestions? Thanks

    I have the same issue ..
    This is due to an BIOS 'feature' which does not support 48-bit LBA.

    Normally this would be no big deal, but LG does not provide a BIOS upgrade.
    (That's what I just got as a reply from them)

    See this site about 137gb barrier!

    I think LG is just trying to make us buy another LapTop, since the BIOS upgrade is no big issue.
    A Laptop dated 2006 (as is mine) should have that larger disk drive support.

    I will not give in, and find a solution ...

I Use Windows XP Home service Pack 2 on the LG P1 Express dual. Which I bought on septembre 2006. The Hard drive is a 200 GB Toshiba SATA 4200 rpm. Nothing has benn solved to the present. The only news I have is that the BIOS only supports up to 190 GB, I will try to buy a 160GB to try it out, but not yet. LG computer are acceptable but no further service or client support. I´ll never buy one again. I would anyway like to have a 300GB Hard drive. If you figure out a solution please share it. I will too, also if I see that the 160GB HD works.Thanks.

I have an lg ed 500 laptop and somehow i cannot unlock the cmos bios password. i have forgotten the password..!!! please help me as soon as possible...its an emergency.!!!!

The only thing I can think of is if you can open up your laptop, there should be jumper pins near the bios chip. Remove them and restart? Or, remove the battery for a few minutes.

I have an LG laptop model LS55 Express..Of late, my battery isn't getting charged, though I bought new a battery..No Idea why? Any quick fix please !!

Check your power adapter at the laptop make sure it isn't loose. If it isn't loose, check for a BIOS update from LG's website. Check the readme.txt file or on the website for what the BIOS update fixes to make sure that the update will fix it. I would give LG tech support a call to double check. If the BIOS update doesn't work then you have a hardware issue - the motherboard charging components maybe fried.

go furthest right in the menu and choose to "set default valuse"
save and exit.
boot up computer completly
