Hard disk upgrade for Gateway mx7118

Can I put a 250 GB Scorpio (ATA configured) hard disk into my MX7118 Gateway laptop? Will my laptop recognize the much larger hard disk available?

    I checked w/Gateway. He said nothing over 100 GB was allowable. This seems low so I am checking elsewhere.

    I have purchased the same drive for my MX7118 and would like to know the answer.

    I am successfully running this drive in my MX7118 with a clone of the XP that I was running.

Check Gateway's support for possible help here. Most laptops can be upgraded substantially, RAM or Hard drive.

Gateway's site- I didn't see any BIOS upgrades. http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=10651&os=&type=

Perhaps someone on this site has made such an upgrade and can give you a definitive answer.

You did not mention which operating system you are using. Almost every operating system has partition manager utility. you can use any other utility by downloading from net. just search google.

Hi there. I am a RAM rookie. I have GAteway MX7118. are there two memory slots or one. It comes with 512 does that mean there are two slots and I can add a 1GB for A total of 1.5GB ?


Hi, defending on your cpu board usualy there are two slots, also if your board capable to 1 gigabytes memory, if your memory is DDR u can add 1 GB up . if your memory is SD you cannot add higher than 712 MB. if your memory is 512 and you want to add 1GB the total should be 1.5 you are correct in your calculation. thanks

You don't need to change or buy another hard drive, unless you want to install a larger size hard drive.
Boot up with the Windows CD and reinstall Windows.
