Its says on sights that windows xp does not recongise sada harddrives


You just need an updated XP SP3 installation disc. No special instructions are then required. This was referring to a new OS install, with new SATA drives. Right?

Or, make sure you are updated and add a second drive as normal.

I have intel D1011GGC pentium4 mb with 1.5GB RAM and 80gB hard disc. Can i increase my hard disc capacity with 250Gb? what i have to do


You can add it in as the main harddrive or you could add it in as a second harddrive. The instructions should come with the harddrive but basically you go into bios and set it up to autodetect it...

However perhaps you'd consider another option. As the machine must be several years old why not get an external harddrive that way if/when you get a new machine you can use it with the new one?
Use it for saving all your photos, music, saved files etc as you wish and keep just xp and basic programs on the 80 gig drive you have now? :)

I want to be able to Mirror or RAID-1 on 2 different drives, then break the mirror and mark the second drive as an active boot drive. After looking around online, I realize that this process is more...


I understand now, and appreciate your taking the time to clarify.

1.Make a backup disk of the current harddrives contents. This is a Restoration Disk.
Has the basic needed files for the Windows O/S, (Repair), but will also allow for a Full Installation.

2.Desktop, not laptop:
Install two harddrives, put them in a RAID1 configuration. Forget about the 'mirror' image program. Leave them both in there in case of a harddrive failure.

3.Laptop, not desktop:

A.There are some laptops that you press a key, or certain keys, when installing a new harddrive, when the old one has hardware issues, or viruses render it unusable. These key/s are pressed, BEFORE the old harddrive is removed. Allows replacement of that harddrive.

There are some laptops that Do Not! There is a workaround.

The above is to replace that harddrive, and may be used to upgrade to a larger harddrive, IF, certain criteria is met.

B.Use an external enclosure, insert the new 2.5" harddrive. Connect the external enclosure to the laptop via the USB port.
Now use an image 'mirror' program such as DriveImage XML, (Free), to copy over the image of the old harddrive to the new one.

Insert the new harddrive into the laptop. You can use the old harddrive in the external enclosure as a Slave drive.
Still only allows THOSE harddrives, to be used on THAT laptop.
Don't be surprised if you have to Re-Activate the O/S on that harddrive. (New one)

C.RAID configuration on a laptop = No
You only have one interface connection for a harddrive, Generally.
IDE, or SATA
(Some gamer laptops use two hardrives internally. These are already configured in a RAID 0 configuration. More storage space. However, if one harddrive goes kaput, all information is lost. I do not believe you are referring to one of these)

The above is only for reference. I have no working knowledge of this program, just know of it's existence.

Just added a new harddrive to an acer 3680 notebook


For some reason or another sometimes Windows XP will not load unless you partition and format the new disk first. Try it you having nothing to lose as it will do no damage to your hard drive.

Hard disk and ram


Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.

Toshiba satellite a205-s5831 Received kernel data error. Hard drive has clicking noises. Programs ran slow. Chkdsk running now for over 15 hours and only on 11%..preplacing bad clusters.


When a harddrive starts clicking it's on it's way out.
Buy a new harddrive and at the same time get a USB to laptop harddrive adapter. You can reinstall XP with the recovery disks that came with your machine ans then slave your old drive to your laptop and recover your personal files.
If you really want to get technicalbuy an Apricorn housing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602
And two new harddrives, fit one new harddrive to the Apricorn housing and try to install the EZgig cloning software to your dying Windows. You can clone your existing Windows install to the new harddrive in the Apricorn housing and then move that drive to your laptop, the second new harddrive can then be fitted to the Apricorn housing and used as an external harddrive.
EZgig comes with the Apricorn housing and you could even go so far as to create a clone of your Windows install to the new external harddrive. The Apricorn housings are excellent, they are small enough to carry in your laptop case and all they need for power is a USB port.

Compaq presario 1685 is this particular system xp compatible.


Unfortunately, the Hard Drive size is only 4.3 GB, while WinXP takes 3 GB and requires at least 5 GB to run. Even if you did have an external Hard Drive, the amount of RAM is not enough to let you do anything. Stay with your current OS or get a new PC.
