Please help me find the BIOSexe file to flash and make my blackscreen problem go away...hopefully

The files listed ARE the BIOS files. They are compressed in ZIP format and must be opened to access the EXE files inside. The 2.11 version is the Legacy or ORIGINAL BIOS that was installed on the laptop. The 2.12 is the updated BIOS. You must clock the download button and open the file downloaded. There is a PDF file inside that details how to perform the flash update.

I have a latitude D600 and I am now getting the 'disk read error' after installing a new larger than 137 GB hard drive. I know (now) I need to upgrade the BIOS to see the larger hard drive, bu

Unless Dell has the upgrade for the bios to include the larger hardware you are going to be in trouble, I would go online to Dell and check for upgrades to your model if they still support it. The other option is contact customer and technical support to see it they can give you a alternative solution.

Does a 80 gb hdd require a bios update for this computer

Your computer will support an 80 gb hard drive. It will recognize up to 137 gb, and you could actually install a 160, with the included set up software that shipped with the new hard drive.

Fry's copied my ST94811A drive to a WD 3200BEVE. I have a Dell D600. I get highly intermittent system failures and the system shuts down. Can a D600 handle a 320GB HD? I re-enstalled my old drive and so...

D600 is a rather old laptop. It may need a BIOS update - go to DELL support website and look for a BIOS update for your model (quickest search by providing the Service Tag number).

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

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).
