Question about Tatung 12.1'' Widescreen Laptop, 1.4 GHz Intel Centrino Pentium M (TWNB12N01) PC Notebook
I have a Tatung notebook TWNB12N01. I got the "blue screen of death" a couple times in just a few minutes and it shutdown, now it will not startup at all. It says it can't find the hard drive and there is a problem with the startupdd.sys. I went into the BIOS to see what kind of hard drive it was to see if I could download help from their site, but it shows no "vendor" and the "size" shows "0MB".
My question is...Is there another way to get the hard drive back up or is it just shot, and if so, can I buy a replacement hard drive and will that work?
Thank you so much for your help.
Is that a new notebook?
Yes you can replace the hard drive with any laptop drive. I am not sure about the bios limitations on size, however if you got a comparable size drive you would not have any wasted space.
You can use a bigger drive, it just will not format beyond the bios max.
You may want to consider a 7200rpm drive for the replacement. It will improve your pc performance, however it will also generate more heat, so if you dont use the machine in an environment that is well ventilated, that may not be a good idea. :)
