This model laptop is installed with an IDE 40Gb hard drive.
You can use a faster hard drive but the BIOS limits the maximum size hard drive you can install.
Check the specification of this laptop for the maximum size hard drive you can install.

I cant format my laptop . when i run xp cd after


Sorry, it sounds like your hard drive failed. It is either that, or your XP install CD has an error. If it is the hard drive, it is easy to replace. Take it to your local PC techie and he/she will put a new hard drive in for a lot less than a new PC. Check out eBay as the cheapest place to buy a replacement hard drive; there are two types of hard drives for laptops - SATA and IDE. Got to buy the "right" one.

I just want to know how to go about expanding my hard drive's memory. do i have to buy a larger hard drive or can i add on? thanks.-Jeff


You have two options (Pending the answer to this question) Is it a Laptop or desktop? (Pending that you answered Desktop) You can buy an additional hard drive and get it to run as a slave to the other (Basically the will run in tandum) Or Just replace the Other with a new one. The second option requires you to reinstall the Operation system and can get to be a pain but either way this does require the purchase of a hard drive. If your in the market for something easy, I suggest an External HD. Its a quick and easy install for the non- technical savvy and is portable, So you can take all your files with you. Great investment. A terabyte unit is relatively inexpensive and is more space than you'll ever need. Laptops only have one spot for a HD so the only option is to replace it

Need to install a new hard drive into my son's Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro Laptop. Need to know which Hard Drive to purchase and how to fit / set-up. Any help you can provide would be gratefully...


If the laptop is less than 3 years old, then any 2.5'' hard drive will work.
Some laptop need slim hard drive, if you buy a slim 2.5'', this will mount on all laptops after 2004.
To get more details submit the problem on Fixya again providing information on your laptop's model.

ACER HARD DRIVE CRASH


you can easily buy a new HDD at buy.com or newegg.com but checking the old one and installing the new one are a little harder. The drive is simply a small SATA drive and can be plugged into any newer PC. Techs use a USB adapter, but if you know something about it, installing a drive isn't that hard. You may need to enable in in BIOS though.

Installing a new one is a simple matter, but then you have to install windows, which means you'll have to boot from the CD [and HAVE a windows install CD].

Good luck either way.

Installing Fujitsu MHV2100BH hard drive


I recomend installing an OS, you may need to buy a new cd if you dont have one, or if it came with a recovery CD, then use that. If it doesent work then, the hard drive you bought is damaged.
