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.

Is it possible to upgrade it?


This is an old model laptop its 10 years old, the only upgrade you can do is to install more RAM max. 512Mb. The hard disk in this model laptop can upgrade to 20Gb and these are no longer manufactured.
If it was me I would put my money towards a new laptop.

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.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Blank screen


Look very closely at the screen when its on, see if you can see a faint image in which case the ccfl tube in the screen will be dead. Also try the laptop on an external monitor.
Otherwise if you know what your doing, remove the battery, hard drive, optical drive, all but one stick of ram, modem/wireless card and try again. There is a small chance it will be the cpu or motherboard.

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 :

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..
