Laptops, by design, are bound to get their hard drives broken more than desktops since they are "on the move".
A hard drive is usually made of moving internal parts so it is very sensitive and may malfunction after getting hit.

You can consider buying an SSD hard drive - it is more like a large disk on key formed as a hard drive.
It has no moving parts so it is more durable to physical hits.

1420 dell not reading hard drive . i tryed a nother one in the computer but no change. running checks to see if computer finds it. tryed to reset still nothing.


Hi,

You need to check if the computer supports the hard drive specs that you are using on the unit, it might be too high that the motherboard doesn't support it already. If it is supported, check the hard drive cable and ports, one of those might be faulty.

Hope this helps.

Need to replace hard-drive. What are my options?


The specs say that you have a 60Gb. hard drive. If the unit is less than 2 years old, you should be able to install a 200-300 GB. hard drive without any issues. The older laptops have a 137 GB. limit on hard drive partition space. You still can put a larger capacity drive, but you will have to partition the drive into c: 137GB, then the second partition can be any size.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I changed a hard drive with xp home edition installed to a nother laptop windows dosent start in normal mode just in safe mode


Hi

Thank you for your query

When transferring a hard drive from laptop to another, it is wrong to assume that Windows will automatically work, as both laptops are different windows will not laod up on the other laptop

You will need to reinstall a fresh copy of windows on the hard drive in order for it to work on the other laptop

I hope this has been useful

The hard drive is not being detected on our laptop it turns on and everything but its not being detected what is the problem its not even a year old yet.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

Mx6128 gatway hard drive


The smallest hard drive that can be purchased is approx. 100Gb. You need a Windows installation CD, and provided you have the product installation code (it should be on a Windows label on the bottom of the laptop) installation is fairly straight forward. You may be able to get a Windows CD from a computer shop, they may install Windows for you at a cost. You need to download the device drivers for the laptop from the Gateway WEB site.

Replacement of hard drive


Seagate has been the master of Hard Drives for along time. Most of the other manufacturers have sold out to other companies.

For the past four years an 80Gig (Gigabyte) hard drive was the norm, but in 2008 that changed and the price of a 180Gig or 250Gig drive is less than double the cost of a 80Gig drive.

Terrabyte drives will be the norm in three years, they're already selling in the Server industry as the norm.

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.

Your Hard Drive is dead, time for a new one (but before you throw it out, be sure it was conencted tightly). (assuming you tried booting from abother a nother laptop's hard drive), if you tried to reinstall windows on it, then there is something wrong with the IDE (or ATA) controller in the laptop, you'll need a new motherboard. However if you just inserted the drive from the other laptop, just to see if it will boot up, theres a 99.9% chance that it will not work unless you format the Master Boot Record.
