Hard Drive Upgrade

Hello!

I'm thinking of upgrading the hard drive on this machine and I was wondering what, if any, limitations I have on capacity and/or speed- what can this computer handle? Also, I am unsure about the interface- is it Ultra ATA or IDE? Or are they the same? Thanks so much for your help! Sincerely,

Javier

Let me give you the site where you can check the manual where the hard drive is also listed it is a ata hard drive and that is also an IDE hard drive.

Hi there , i have an acer travelmate 6592 laptop , the original 80 gig hard drive crashed , and i dont have the recovery disc , the hidden partition wont re install either , i have bought a new 320 gig...


You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

Sony pcv-w510g is it possible to upgrade the hard drive? if so, what is the maximum capacity and what are the specs? thank you


Hello,

Your pc can accept any 3.25" hard drive and can take up to a 500GB capacity. Also, the specs would be IDE 3.25" (3 1/2) ATA Hard drive. Brand name is totally up to you.

Good Luck

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    Has anyone upgraded an Epson P-5000 hard disk to a larger capacity drive? if so how is it done?


    Hard Disk Upgrade Can I upgrade or install a larger hard disk drive in my Viewer?

    The P-5000 includes an internal 80GB hard drive which is specifically designed to work with this product. There are no hard drive upgrades available for this product. If you try to install another hard drive, it may damage or adversely affect the operation of the product. This type of damage or operational failure is not covered by the product's warranty.

    Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


    Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

    FireLite FWFL40 - need to upgrade the HD


    Hi, Your basically correct, the only requirement is to physically fit the enclosure (2.5inch), other than that, hard disk capacity is a matter of your personal preference/need; Toshiba is one of the better brands. Others are Seagate, Maxtor to name a few. I guess it's a matter of who can provide better after sales support. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
