It is up to your computer and what you already have installed, but in almost every situation you will have room for one more device ie: Hard drive or CD/DVD drive. You'll need to open the computer up and check to see if you have wide (about 3") flat grey cables connected to your existing drive or if it is a narrow (about 1/2") with similar size connector on the drive. The wide one is generally EIDE for newer computers and IDE for older. The small is SATA. This is the standard now.

Since you have a drive that is 40GB, you almost certainly are either EIDE or SATA. Once you look at the cables, you'll know which type you need to purchase.

Good luck

What's the maximum hard drive I can install in a Compaq SR1420NX I have a 80 hard drive right now I want to install a larger one. Will this computer handle a larger Hard Drive


The BIOS has a max. hard drive size limitation. Check the manual for the maximum size the motherboard can support.
If the maximum size hard disk it can support then you can add a second hard drive in the computer as a SLAVE hard drive to double your disk space capacity.

Can a secound hard drive be put in a Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7802


Yes if you want to add a second external hard drive and NO if you want to add an internal one. Hope I have answered your question.There is no space inside to add a second hard disk, unless it is an external hard disk.

I recently bought a new hard drive to update the "tired out" model in my gateway model gt5674. i was told that i needed a SAS compatable motherboard to get this new hard drive installed. is there any...


Take the disk-drive back to the computer-store,
along with your computer, and exchange the new disk-drive for one that is compatible with your computer. Within 15 seconds of viewing the "inside" of your Gateway, they should be able to identify the correct model of disk-drive that will be compatible with your current motherboard.

Or, the more-expensive option: buy a PCI add-in card to add a 'SAS-compatible' interface (although I've never heard of such an interface!!!!) to your computer.

How do I install the disk supplied with my hard drive into the unit as it explains (poorly, I might add)?


If this is the only hard drive in the machine load the disk while you are loading up the machine. You may have to change your boot order in the BIOS to having cdrom be the first boor device. To get into the BIOS you usually press either f2 or delete while the computer is starting. This should load it's drivers and then you can insert a windows or other operating system disk to install that. If you would like you can also install windows and then press f2 when it asks if you would like to install third party drivers.

If you are installing this drive as a second drive go to control panel and then add hardware. Make sure the disk is in the drive and then let the add hardware applet search for the drive and install the drivers and you should be good to go.

Sata, ide


Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).
