SOURCE: Sata , ide

Initially connect only the sata drive from which you want to boot the OS. Establish the OS successful operation from this drive. Then connect the remaining drives in conventional way or the RAID array you want to have.

Hi, you will need to load the sata raid drivers when installing the OS. Some off the older versions of xp will not have these, when windows is installing it will ask if you need to install a 3rd party raid driver press F6. later on it will ask you to insert the raid driver disk. which you may have to do/make yourself if you haven't already got one.

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.

You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

Want to know whats the maximum hard drive i can put in my pc it as a bv cuba ms-7301

Generally, you can put 2 devices (hard drives or CD/DVD drives) per IDE chain and 1 device per SATA port. It appears there are 2 IDE chains and 2 SATA ports, so theoretically you could have 6 hard drives hooked up (assuming you don't use an optical drive). Four would need to be IDE, two SATA.

Hi, I need a hard drive for a packard bell easynote E4715 but don't know which to buy can you tell me the specification for this computer---i.e. which hard drive to buy to replace the existing one that is...

Look on the drive you presently have in the computer - replace it with one exactly like it. Take it with you when you go to the store. You should be able to get a replacement at any Big Box store or any of a thousand places on-line, including any number of advertisers.

How to get it out? Find it by removing any of a couple screws on the bottom. Unplug it. It will come right out.

You might want to consider having a repair shop look at it before you change it ... changing the drive is more than the obvious physical. You will need a operating system on the drive and what about your existing files.

You can probably get this drive form Packard Bell ... just a thought.

Thanks for your question at today

My computer stopped working some time ago, and I was pretty much certain my hard disk had died (SATA), so I bought a new Hard drive (SATA) and booted my computer....the bios didn't detect the hard drive,...


try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps

Easynote will not go past packard bell screen

You may need BIOS update. Check your CMOS time at bios page.
If time is wrong, set it up and try again. If this is solved the problem, change the CMOS battery.

Hello,I need information on hard drive speed and approx gigabit capacity as fitted to Packard Bell UTOW-R10. many thanks, David.

if you are replaceing a hard drive all you will need to do is make sure you match it up to IDE ATA133 or SATA type connections. otherwise the hard drive info should be printed on the top of the old drive.
