Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I own a SimpleTech 250 GB, Model # 96300-40001-001. My CPU is an HP n7700s for which I'm upgrading my memory. I want to download my entire HD to my SimpleTech and have no instruction manual although I bought it new. How do I do this in "simple" terms? Thank you, Marvin Hays

Solution was to do nothing. I was working in the CPU and wanted to back the HD in case the HD was damaged and/or data lost. I did the work and everything turned out okay.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

NO ! I would like to know if I can install a


You can put whatever size hard drive you want in your pc....typically they do not come with operating systems on them when you buy them...they are blank....you can run it as a secondary drive with the one you are already running and use it for storage....Otherwise you will have to have xp installed for you....(more money) . You can not put 600 GB of memory or ram on a pc.....most pc's take up to 4 GB of ram....If you literally mean memory than that will be whatever size hard drive you purchase...Ram is random access memory and helps determine the speed of your pc. And yes it is always worth it to upgrade a pc, depending on how old it is.

It's probably cheaper and better long term for you to just upgrade.

Upgrade


Hi!

Two things to do then, either buy a new bigger disk and replace the on on your HP...OR buy an external disk and connect it via the USB.

Just remeber that you need to reinstall everythin on that HP if you replace the disk on it with another one

Good luck

I have a umax 329T actionbook and i want to upgrade cpu and memory and hd can i do this or ihave to buy a new pc??


On most laptops its rare that you can upgrade CPUs, also I can't even find specs for this notebook, you may be able to upgrade memory, and with the specs from it it will tell you if you can upgrade CPU and how much memory it can handle.
