    Thanks for that. Its just that some one said it had to do with how much the mother bord could handle? I have no clue what that means?? Does any internal hard drive fit in any laptop. Or will I have to get a special size/brand for this laptop? Thanks again for all your help :)

Yes this is true but the only limits will be

1.the file format uesd FAT32 or NFTS vs OS ie ...98,XP,Vista,as each OS has its own imposed limits ,
2.motherboard speeds and connection types for Hdd's built into your machines,max speed of data transfer,ie,EIDE,ATA,SATA

If you have good RAM and MB too,then is should .perform well,
Macs and pC and Laptops all have hdds,the diierences are there speeds andd storage capacities.

Any questions please ask ,thanks Misterdj

There is no max size when it comes to hard drives. Go as big as you want or can get.

Max hard drive size for Toshiba Satellite 2430-S255


Unless you are running Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 and your drive format is FAT16/32 and not NTFS, there should not be any problem with a high capacity drive. Don't make the HDD size too big: it may be costly. If you have money to burn get two drives, one internal system disk, and the other an external storage/ backup drive.

Wanting to put a faster hard drive with more storage ???


The things you want to look for are a ultra ATA laptop drive. Thats is the type of connector you have to match up and you need to match up the size. The only thing that you might run tino is size limit on the drive. I tried swapping a 100 in for a 60 and it wouldn;t recognize it. It should have but it wouldn't. So you may want to do a bit of research to makre sure you don't go too big and then have it not work. I don't see what brand or model of laptop this is so can't look that up for you. What you can do is contact the support for your brands and get them to ask how big will work. It might take a few days to get back to you but they should be able to tell you and save you buying somethign that won't work.

Thinkpad T42 Hard Disk problem


Hello.

It seems the hard disk size will max out at 80GB with a 5,400 RPM speed according to IBM.

Im sorry to say that this means that it will not support a 120Gb hard drive.

Pp1020 harddrive


Hi doug160451,
Could you please post the specifications of your laptop, but if your laptop originally came with a 5 Gb Hard Drive then chances are it would be an old laptop and you would do better upgrading to a new laptop than go through the problems associated with upgrading only your hard drive. 
Cheers
