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.

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

Upgrade my Harddisk


Yes you can. You only have to consider the type of drive that you have to purchase. If it is IDE, the wide flat wire or the SATA which has a narrow flat wire. Make sure you get the same type.

I just purchased a 320 gig hard drive and when i set a partition it only shows 132 gig


Use the WD data life guard disc to partition the drive. Put the disc in, reboot the computer, and run data life guard. A screen comes up and asks if your system can recognize a partition greater than 137 gb. If your system can read larger than 137, then use the option to format one large partition.

Some OS cannot read larger than 137gb. Also some Bios have the same problem.

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).

Windows does not see full size of new Hard drive


Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

I am trying to update an older computer (Windows XP pro installed) A Matsonic FC/02/74 motherboard is diagnosted Intel Pendium 4, 1.5 GHz CPU 3 modules with a total of 512 Gb RAM NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 400 20...


137 GB. If larger it will subdivide into two or more disks.
Cannot find a support website for MATSONIC motherboards. You can  the Ram chips (usually up to 3GB) linited by you MB BIOS. By monitor interface you mean the Video card. It is a judgement call. Are you wanting it faster to see games or movies played glitch now? Personally ,W/O internet support of the MB or company support , I would not bother. Since you are willing to buy Xp and install it consider looking on newegg.com or elsewhere for a new compatable motherboard (Usually ATX) and start over. If you buy one with the same socket you can use the same CPU and usually the same power supply. Just my thoughts .

During installation, windows XP only recognizes 131062 mb of my 320 gb hard drive


This is because "the original ATA specification used a 28-bit addressing mode, allowing for the addressing of 228 (268,435,456) sectors (blocks) of 512 bytes each, resulting in a maximum capacity of about 137 gigabytes" (wikipedia). To fix this try upgrading your computer's bios and enabling any bios entries for larger disks. Also make sure that you are running your operating system with all of the current updates.

48-bit LBA compatible BIOS possible ??


The last Bios update for your board was 06/18/2002. With XP editions you should not have a problem seeing the whole drive.
Your bios is not a issue with win XP & drive size.
By going to your Hd's Mfg's site you can download either bootable disks or creat a bootable CD & set your drive up in dos like mode. Your able to pick your FAT type & cluster size, drive size & preform a quick format. If you want the NTFS file system with its 4kb cluster size skip the Mfg's drive utilities & just let windows do its thing.
The link below is your board.:
