I've never had the pleasure of working on one of these. What I do when trying to find the hard drive in a machine I'm not familiar with is put my ear down to the machine, start it, and listen for the hard drive to kick in. This let's me know where it is, then I look the machine over to figure out how to get to it systematically. On most laptops, there is a cover on the bottom or the side that hides the hard drive. If on the side, it's generally a caddy that is held by a screw on the bottom, and the hard drive slides out with it. On some models they put the hard drive under the keyboard or palm rest/touch pad. So, listen to find out the location of the drive, then look for a cover on the side or bottom in that area. If there's not a cover, then remove the keyboard and check if you can see it. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, unfortunately there's no manuals on line, but I hope this helps, and get you started in the right direction.

Hi . I have notebook hp nx7300 , the hard disk 80GB I'm upgrade the hard disk to 320GB but the computed dont see the hard


Your motherboard does not support the new SATA II HDD. You will need to go to the HP website and download the driver to a flash disk and then when you install Windows it will ask if you wish to install drivers you would select yes and then open the flash disk - Windows will install the driver itself.

The other way is a bit more tricky and that's to go back to your old HDD and create a custom slipstreamed windows CD with your new driver installed as standard.

I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz / 802.11b-g Wireless / 15.4-inch WXGA / 512MB DDR / 60GB HDD / DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo / and I want to change the hard disk.I want a list with...


That takes an IDE HDD. They are universal so any notebook IDE HDD will replace that 1. I like Weatern Digital because they really are good about standing behind their hard drives. Now it only came with a 4200 RPM so when u upgrade purchase the 5400 RPM. If the bios firmware only supports the 60GB then u will need to format a larger drive with a second partition using admin tools as a mass storage device.

  • Supported HDD thickness:
    • 12.5 mm for systems without the touch pad
    • 9.5mm for systems with the touch pad
  • Standard 20GB, 40GB, 60GB HDD sizes.
    Note:
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as marketing option part number 08K9688 has a height of 12.5mm and will not fit in the HDD slot of the systems with the touch pad installed. For these systems, it is only supported via the ThinkPad 2nd HDD Adapter for the Ultrabay 2000.
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as replacement service part number 08K9833 is 9.5mm.
  • Supports one additional HDD which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage utilizing the Ultrabay 2000
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface
  • 4200 or 5400 rpm
  • Although you can upgrade the HDD, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 HDD adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000 IBM says. I say if the OS recognises it and so does the BIOS, you're good. good luck, hope this helps.-jmattes p.s. I found this info on: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42218.html

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Hard disk problem


Change the other HDD to either Cable Select or SLAVE.

Then make sure you partition it correctly, Windows does a decent job at it.

Right click on My Computer, go to Manage, then under storage, click on Disk Management; you should see the HDD here.
