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 a Advent 4211C Notebook, today when i switched on my notebook ..it is giving an error..... File : \boot\BCD status : 0x000000f info : an error occurred while attempting to read...


Hi,

I suggest try to remove the HDD or the storage device on your laptop and take it to any computer local center and have them back up your data thats the safest way for not losing your data because if you try to fix it and you accidentally reformat the HDD or storage device you'll lose all your data. The HDD is located at the bottom of the laptop, try to remove all of the cover. It looks like on the picture.

I HAVE LAPTOP IBM THINKPAD T30 AND I WANT TO CONNECT HARD DISK 80GB OR MORE


  • 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

How to expand/upgrade the HDD memory on Toshiba NB200/205?


It is always possible to upgrade to a larger HDD as they are pretty much standard for all makes. If you replace your current hard drive then you will have to re-install your O/S and all your programmes on it. A better option would be a fast external HDD. You can get 1.5TB, 7200rpm for around £100. This is the best option if you are simply looking for more storage, This will not improve the overall performance of your machine but will allow you to store more stuff.

Can I use a SATA2 HDD for P5GL MX?


just like usb1 and 2, the sata2 harddrive will simply clock down to match the speeds of its port. the connections for both types are identical so there are no possibilities of problems...other then the motherboard saying "nope i cant read that", which most likely wont happen.
ohyeah...ram does the same thing too.
but honestly, if you're using a mobo thats only sata1 and you've got the dough for a new 1tb harddrive, you should consider upgrading your motherboard first...much better money spent

What is upgrad & how upgrad in HTC Touch P3450?


u cannot upgrade storage memory that is called RAM and ROM but u can always upgrade ur Storage card that is used for the storage of programs and files I understand ur problem u are feeling short of memory in Program and storage that RAM and ROM u cannot upgrade but u can do something about it i can help u in this

option 1
u can always reset the device for a new start and then try installing all ur programs to ur memory card when it ask for location where to install select storage card there and ur ROM will not be used to store those programs plus ur device will be fast in performance.
always

1.store programs in storage card
2.never install in ROM or ur device memory
3.Always close programs from the Task Manager a small arrow up on right side of screen select all programs and close them after u are done with them u will never be short of RAM.
4. Set ur History and cache folder of ur browser IE or OPERA to Storage card if u cant find the link to do this just google SKTOOLS for Windows Mobile download and install this software will let u configure where to keep ur history and cache files

5.When u recieve files from bluetooth they by default comes in the Device/MyDocuments folder and this will use ur device storage which is limited offcourse so u can google OBEX INBOX install and set the folder of recieving files thru bluetooth to memory card directly this is a very imp tool u will never find it easily i bet.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.
