LAPTOP HARD DRIVE UPGRADE

I am looking to increase the size of my laptop (Averatec c3500 tablet - not on your product list so I used one close) hard drive from 60 gb to something much larger (120 to 250 gb). Is it possible to transfer all files and operating system to a new hard drive and then install without having to reinstall any software or the operating system on the new drive (cloning the old drive on the new drive)?

Get adapter here: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=2020. Download hard drive cloning software. Connect new drive to adapter, and USB cable to booted notebook. Follow cloning software instructions. When finished, swap out the old hard drive.

Remove dvd drive


Get a paper clip and straighten half of it out. Now look for a small hole in the face of the DVD drive.
If the drive is Trayless then there should still be a small hole in the dvd location..If the DVD has a tray make sure that the laptop is powered down, insert the Paper clip in to this hole and the DVD tray will pop open.. If the DVD inserts in to the drive(Trayless), Then make sure the laptop is on and insert in to the hole that will be in this same area.

Thank you for your visit to Fixya.com

My hard drive has gone bad. Where can I get another one or at least one that will fit my 7100 series laptop?


Any Brand will do but you need at 3.5 Size hard Drive. It is not like Desktop where you can pop in a Hard Drive. Once your hard drive is toasted you cannot restart your System. You have to install the System (OS) from the Start. Once you installed the Hardisk properly with ribbon and power wires. It is ready to go when you boot for the first time. Go to EBAY and put the Model. You may want to upgrade the hard drive into more storage. Some used laptop stores they sell Second hand. I think, it is by 100.00 per 100 gig. Lower gig may also be lower price. You can get low one and just add external USB hard drive or pocket hard drive.

Knocking sound from inside averatec 1000


This looks like a hard disk drive problem, I think that you must be hearing a clicking sound. Which means that your hard disk has a lot of bad sectors and eventually they will increase resulting in hard disk failure.
Does your laptop boots, or are you at the last stage.
This can be fixed but its a very complicated and lengthy process, thats why I would recommend you to get a new hard disk or get it repaired by a computer tech. Compare the prices and go for the cheapest one.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

Averatec 6100, how to find and replace hard drive


On the bottom of the laptop are panels that can be removed by taking out the few screws that are holding them in. Take off all the panels until you find the hard drive. The hard drive will also be screwed into a metal housing that will you unscrew and remove and place it on the new hard drive. You will be looking for a laptop IDE hard drive to replace it with but you should find one listed for you model. Plug the new HDD back in. It will only insert one way so it should be easy to figure out.

Cracked screen computer working


Okay heres the thing, look up your model number on your laptop and check the model number in google, after you find your laptop look for a site that offers replacement parts, depending on the year of the laptop you can relativily pick up a screen for cheap, simply pull the small tabs that hold your plastic keyboard in place and lift it out gently (you dont want to damage the keys); then take apart the laptop as needed depending on the model it might only be two screws holding it in and you may not have to remove anything else, so anyway after you get past the hardware and gently dismantle your laptop, just remove screws and screen connector from motherboard (be sure to not touch motherboard or have it on any surface that might give you electrostatic discharge) which would fry your laptop. Then just swap out smashed screen for newly ordered screen and reassemble, not very difficult! Hard to give you any more info not knowing model or anything!! Good luck!!

My Epson EMP-S4 LCD projector does not display images from my Averatec C3500 laptop. It displays "No signal".. Do i have to press any keys before it would display? I suppose it would automatically project...


When you connect a data projector or external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the data projector or external monitor first then the laptop. The video info will automatically divert to the data projector/external monitor automatically.
If you have already had powered up the laptop first, most laptops will allow you to toggle between the LCD screen and the external video port by pressing the Fn key plus one of the Function keys, this key will have a screen/laptop symbol.

First, you will not be able to upgrade the video card on your laptop, since video cards for laptops are specifically designed to fit onto the motherboard and the design of the laptops body.

Secondly, sound cards as well are also deisgined that way, some sound cards on laptops are built in to the mother board and higher end sound card for laptops are specifically designed to fit onto the motherboard and the laptop's body.

Hard Drives on the other hand can be upgraded to a higher capacity but you can't add an additional Hard Drive. I have checked the specs of your laptop has 80GB IDE. You can upgrade to 120GB IDE or higher if you like. Just make sure that you purchase a 2.5" HDD (5400RPM/7200RPM speeds).

Here are examples of Hard drivers that you need for upgrade. I checked newegg.com for available laptop hard drive. You can check other online stores or other computer shops near you if you as well.

**Since you have installed Windows Vista, I suggest that you upgrade the RAM (Memory) on the laptop for smooth performance for Windows Vista. The maximum memory on your laptop is 2GB DDR SDRAM. Buyin RAM for laptops are a little but tricky so you can just go to the link below for specific memory upgrade for your laptop (I suggest that you purchase 2 pcs of 1GB since your system can accomodate up to 2GB).

Link for RAM (Memory) :

**If you decied to upgrade the Hard Drive, you can still use you old Hard Drive as an USB external Hard drive for storage purposes. You will just have to purchase a 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure. Click on the link below for the example of the product :

Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.

The DVD drive for my Averatec C3500 does not eject.


First check the bios settings, set to the default settings.

You can dowload a bootable linux CD from here:
http://www.knoppix.org/  (I recommend the v3.3)

If you can use a cd with that it is a software problem.

Averatec 3120 hard drive choices


So, you google it.. it tells you what it is, in this case a XXX size 30GB drive, how fast etc.. then you go see how fast a HD your laptop can use ATA66. ATA 100 etc..
then you go on ebay and see what is available..
Perhaps you try google groups to see if there are any complaints on the model you are thinking about.
Then you bug your local PC shops for something the same physical size, or smaller , for a a price close to what you see online..
If you do it yourself, you'll need tiny screwdrivers and patience.

A laptop to desktop ide adapter ($10 on ebay) will help a lot too..

Good luck..
