This HD has a very minimun Buffer 128kb _ Thats 0.128mb _ the newest HDs have a Buffer of 16mb thats 16,000kb - you need 2mb/2,000kb minimum or even 8mb - THIS 0.128kb is your WEAK link from getting the HD info onto your RAM

The computer speed completely depends on the speed of quantity of RAM, HDD, processor and FSB of mother board. Your processor is good enough to give better result with windows XP and did not mention about the availability RAM, if less than 256 MB, you need to upgrade and you can upgrade HDD not so mandatory if you have more than 20% free space. Under maintenance practice do regular "DEFRAGMENTATION and CHECK DISK" from selecting driver properties under tool tab.RAM will surely give boost and do degramenation

Well i have this Quantum Fireball lct20 40 GB for a while and i have no problems at all ecept for recently it is very slow loading up information. i scan disk it i checked the sectors of the disk and i...


I will make two comments.
1- make sure you have backed everything up you want to keep :-)
2 - a hard disk will appear to slow down as it fills up. it is actually running at the same speed but must work much harder to find space to place your data. if your disk is past 70% full you will probably notice a performance hit - if its past 90% full you will see a major hit. if it gets much more than that you run the risk of having real problems.
whatever the cause of the problem, the first thing you need to do is back it up. then make sure its not over loaded and if it is just get a larger drive. get your data over to the new drive and off you go.

Quantum Fireball Lct20 20 GB


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

A 20Gb Quantum Fireball LCT20 could be nearing its life end considering the length of time it has been in service. Perhaps what could be done is to perform a burn-in test on the 20Gb HD attaches as a Slave or Secondary on a 2nd PC or alternately, as an external mass storage device through an IDE to USB adapter. Burn-in test would be a multiple time scanning fro errors as those used by Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can also Partition Magic to partition/format and eventually test the HD.

In your concern of PC slow down after 10 minutes, it is possible that:
  • the HD is slowing after some time or having difficulty searching for the called for system files;
  • heat related, either on the HD motor/bearings or even on the CPU (thermal throttling);
  • there are a number of software running in the background using the PC's memory;
  • presence of virus and/or malicious software.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration

XP NOT RECOGNIZING BOTH Hd


Hi, considering that the 20G hdd was manufactured years back, it is possible that they are really at the end of their life. Being detected in the bios does not necessarily mean that everything is ok with the drive(s). You may want to try a third party partitioning/formatting software such as partition magic which however would need a second pc that is fully operational and install the fireballs either as secondary or slave. Another way is to download a diagnostic software from quantum dgdsk250.exe, install in a diskette and boot your on that diskette with your fireballs installed. it will perform factory std check-up and give you info re status of hdds. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up
