Any laptop manufactured within the last few years will have two characteristics:
1. a 2.5-inch format (not the larger 3.5-inch format as used in "desktop" computers)
2. a SATA (Serial ATA) interface, not the much-older IDE/PATA interface.

Hint: take your computer to a computer-store; if they are "customer-service-oriented",
they will sell you a compatible disk-drive, *AND* remove the old disk-drive, *AND* connect the new disk-drive, at no additional cost, other than the cost of the new disk-drive.

Nobilis ACY13 Laptop Computer ac adapters and power suply

Hi Gerald,

I'm not sure what the question quite is since there's only the Model Number in the description but I am assuming you're looking for a replacement power supply for your laptop.

Amazon is my favorite place to order especially as a Prime member. You get free 2 day shipping and $3.99 overnight shipping on most products.

I've ordered many Generic Universal AC Adapters from this site and have not had any issues, just be sure to order from a 4+ Star Seller.

Amazon has a generic adapter here priced at about $40 shipped:

If you have any further questions feel free to respond and I'll be happy to help!

Keith, have you ever walked into a fast food restaurant, like McDonald's per se; and said, "Give me a hamburger".

And they did? Just plopped a hamburger on the counter, and there you go?

We have the same problem here. Need the model number of the Nobilis desktop computer.

I have a Gateway MP6954 laptop with factory 120GB SATA hard drive. I'm trying to install a Seagate 500GB SATA hard drive and am getting "no hard drive installed" when booting from XP CD. Any ideas?

you need to check the specs on your gateway to be sure your laptop firmware can accept the 500G hard drive (might be too big for it to see). I would first check for any firmware updates from the gateway website first and any notes that they can provide to you.
Another point is the kind of hard drive you are looking at. Is it an SATA drive? PSATA? EIDE? This also needs to be clarified to be sure you have the right kind of drive. You can verifi\y that you system can see the drive by looking in the CMOS screens to see if it sees the drive. I suggest you start there and check for updates to the firmware if you do not see it in there (CMOS). Thanks!

Need to install a new hard drive into my son's Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro Laptop. Need to know which Hard Drive to purchase and how to fit / set-up. Any help you can provide would be gratefully...

If the laptop is less than 3 years old, then any 2.5'' hard drive will work.
Some laptop need slim hard drive, if you buy a slim 2.5'', this will mount on all laptops after 2004.
To get more details submit the problem on Fixya again providing information on your laptop's model.
