I know the original question is over a year old, but here it goes for those just tuning in. Your HP ze4325us can only recognize a hard drive that is under 137.4GB. If you try to install a hard disk larger than 137.4, your computer will start to fail over time. I would recommend a 120GB hard drive, ata-100 / ide / eide, and spinning up around 5400 or 7200 rps. It would make your task easier. If you want to go bigger, use the hard drive manufacturers disk utillities programs (check manufacturer website) to partition and format before installation. So, if you were to puchase a 160GB drive, you could partition it at 137.4GB and 22.6GB. My advice, make it easy and just find a 120GB drive. Less hassles!

HDD Upgrade


That model has standard IDE interface for hard drive. Don't think 500 GB or higher comes with that interface. The standard now is SATA interface for hard drives. Here is a lnk to the owner's manual for you model:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_optiplex_desktop/optiplex-gx60_user%27s%20guide_en-us.pdf
You tell the difference between standard IDE and SATA in that the standard IDE interface uses a wide flat ribbon cable to connect to the drive. SATA uses a small thin cable as shon in the following link:

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    Price actually depends on where you make your purchases, do some research to locate the best price and yes you can upgrade your hard drive and memory, I am unsure of the type of memory your laptop needs however the hard drive you need is a 2.5 inch sata drive

    Hard drive failure


    You can replace the hard drive, but you will need to reload the Operating System from some other source, as it sounds like your Hard Drive is dead.

    Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


    Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).
