If I understand your problem correctly - You cannot!!
You will probably only get about 50 - 59gigs as the remainder will be overhead for a FAT (File Allocation Table).
A FAT is like a record of where things are located on your disc.
It contains info on where on the disc your files are, how your drive is formated, etc.

Query regarding maximum capacity of motherboard support for a hard disk


your cpu does not have much to do with the hdd you may be getting...
technically you should have no problem by getting the largest hdd you can afford. what you may want to take into consideration besides your budget is:
what os you're using.. dos, win9x, xp, vista?
a. if you have dos the smaller you can get probably the better as you may not be able to create a large partition. (chances are you may not get anything new smaller than 40 gigs.. and that would be a big waste of money and hard drive room)
b. if you have win9x, your probably using fat32 for your filesystem meaning you may not be able to go above 32 gig when creating your partition and formating your drive.
c. if your using win xp or vista... and your planning on using NTFS when partitioning the drive instead of FAT32...(as you should unless your operating system is on a FAT32 partition) you can go for the largest hdd you can afford.

Need to replace Toshiba Satellite 4090 XDVD hard drive


Any Techie should be able to do this for you, or you can try it yourself IF YOU PROCEED CAREFULLY. The small plastic trim strip just above the left and right click bars must be popped out and the keyboard removed to access the hard drive. I bought a 60 gig Seagate to upgrade the 6 gig that was in it and did it myself in about an hour. You will need to have the restore disc to reinstall all the drivers and the DVD player software. Mine is also upgraded to Win XP Pro. Runs a tad slow as RAM is maxed out at 180 megs but operates fine otherwise and plays movies without skipping. Hope this helps.

Install hard-drive


Sata drives don't have an option to be master/slave like IDE drives, b/c the Sata cable is per device. If the computer's not pulling up the sata drive, open device manager (right click  my computer, properties, hardware tab, device manager) and look for a yellow question mark. You'll have to install drivers for it more than likely.
