Laptop hard drives are compatible to any laptops as long as the connectors are the same. ATA to ATA or SATA to SATA.

If your IBM hard drive is a laptop hard drive, it will not be compatible with a desktop. Desktop hard drives are 3.5 inches in size while notebooks or laptop hard drives come in 2.5 inches.

Hope this helps.

Not seeing new hard disk or reading XP cd-rom


It can use any 31/2" IDE hard drive. 30 Gb should be OK
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive or the CD drive then the drives maybe faulty or the disk controller in the computer is faulty.

Asking password before booting


Sounds like somebody installed a hard drive password, and there is no way to get around it but to replace the hard drive and start over.

Getting files off an old IBM TravelStar 20 GB Hard Drive


You can buy an adaptor that will connect your hard drive to a pc.
Ribbon cable from your secondary drive on pc goes into the adapator. Adaptor also coonects to laptop harddrive.
You also need to change from being a master driveto be a slave drive . see linkbelow.

You can then copy file to pc a usb memory stick.

Dell inspiron 6400


Not really, it could be the LCD ribbon, LCD inverter. Also does the system power up? Like does the fan spin? And is there a Hard Drive in it or not, Sometimes the Hard Drive pin connector will do that. " Not The Hard Drive, Part that Hard Drive Pins plug into" If you want me to see about fixing it for you, you can send it to me and I'll see about fixing it. I mostly get trouble with Screens from the Gateway Brand they mostly have the LCD Issues. But I do mainly repair for IBM ThinkPads but also do other brands aswell.
IBM, DELL, Compaq, HP, Gateway, Toshiba, Sony, Acer, emachines and fujitsu. All you will have to pay is shipping.
Thanks...

IBM NETVISTA P4 2.4G. no O.S.


If your old copy of win xp is not being used by any other computer then reformat the entire drive with xp. Also make sure that your drive is not divided into 2 or 3 sections. All updated will be available on the windows update site. The reason that I prefer tostart from scratch is Everything is new with no lingering Junk programs in the background. Need help email me at ddugard@cox.net
