Hello Kidbuick,

 

Me is thumu, I have seen your information on Hard Disk.

 

Well, your notebook supports only 120 GB Harddisk that is inbuilt in your Notebook. You cannot install or it does not supports for harddisk more than 120 GB. So I recommend you to use external harddisk of 300 GB, which comes at price of $149.99 .  I suggest you to use HP 300 GB Personal media Drive.

 

You can visit below web link to purchase it:

I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

 

 

Bye.

I want to upgrade my Fujitsu MHV2040AH 40 GB Hard Drive what is the biggest/fastes one i can replace with? i though i found another one but it doesnt have the right connectors. the fujitsu/toshiba site...

Your Fujitsu MHV2040AH is an IDE 2.5" 5400 rpm 40 GB hard drive.

Most Notebooks nowadays will use 2.5" SATA hard drive which is not compatible with IDE.
New IDE are getting harder to find and are therefore in general more expensive to buy than the equivalent SATA

You should be able to update the drive with most 2.5" HDD with either 5400rpm or 7200rpm (faster) with an IDE interface. Common 2.5 IDE capacity would be 120Gb and 250Gb (320GB and 500GB are also available but could be a bit expensive). The important factors are physical size to fit in your notebook/casing and IDE interface. The BIOS support for larger drive can also be a factor but as a rule, worst case situation, a larger capacity drive can always be used at a lower capacity

Hope it helps.

Hi There. I am looking for an Internal Hard Drive to suit a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb ST9160821AS. Where can I get one or is there another Hard Drive that would be OK to use...

I suggest you check the specification of your Dell laptop to see the maximum size hard drive it can support. The maximum size hard disk you can install in the laptop depends upon the BIOS.
Any major brand of 2 1/2" hard drive will work with the Dell.

Can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB? 80GB 7200rpm SATA SAMSUNG

This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Playstation 3 upgrade

Yes, you can. And Sony lets you officially do that. Just for that it has a slot on the side. You just need to remove the screw and pull out the HDD. You can then replace it with any capacity 2.5" HDD also popularly known as laptop hard drives.
