Second harddrive for hp dv9010us

My notebook has space for a second harddrive. I purchased one that is 300 Gig. It fits into the space and connects but when booting up, the notebook does the initial boot, then goes to a blank screen and never finishes the final boot into windows. Can the notebook handle a drive this large, and if yes, how can I get it to recognize the second drive? I couldn't see anything in the setup to change. The first harddrive is 120 Gig and is partitioned by HP into C (my files) and D (restore files). I hope you can help as I only have about 1 gig of space left and need the larger drive to store my data and photos (I require them on the road and don't want to have to carry an external drive/equipment). Thanks for any help,
Andria

    Neither drive has jumpers. They are both SATA drives. BIOS setup showed two drives but when I ran the test on the second drive it froze and had to be forced down. I found another user with exact problem. He created restore DVD's and put the larger drive in and did a restore and installed Win XP on it. Then the machine would boot. However, when putting the original drive back in bay 1 and the larger new drive in bay 2, it froze up again. So I wasn't sure if I should format the new drive and do a restore on it. Any other ideas? Thanks for the help.

Hi, hope you are using XP. Before connecting the drive, make the jumper setting of the second drive to slave. Also make sure that the first drive's jumper setting is at Master and not CS(cable select). Reboot and enter into BIOS setup and check to see that both the drives are detected.
Hope this will help you.

    hi again, it freezes because of the large size. try partition the drive into 4 part or so and format. use the disk manager for the partitioning. it does the work quickly and easily.

    let me know if it works.

Can you upgrade cpu in dell 15 i5559-4682slv to i7 ?


It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.

Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.

My dyson Max 08-21663b WHEN FULLY CHARGED I TURN IT ON AND IT RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS AND GOES OFF AND DOES THE SAME THING REPEATELY I BELIEVE ITS MY BATTERY PACK WHICH IS A 6 CELL CAN YOOU ADVISE ME?


Yes the battery pack would be the most likely culprit here. Go on eBay and buy the correct battery cells and build one using the old one as a guide. This method will save you about 50% over trying to buy a make up replacement if available. This is an easy job, just take your time, buy batteries with solder tabs.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.
