HP/Compaq :: SATA/SATAII Compatability

Jun 16, 2009

For the dv3t or dv4t, the specs list it as SATA compatible. Does this mean I can't pop in a SATAII SSD? [url]

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6408nr Support SataII Transfur Rate

Jun 3, 2009

I have a HP dv6408nr that needs a hard drive. I have found a Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500GB. I have searched on Google for days and i have yet to find a definitive answer if my computer actually supports the 3GB/s transfer rate that new hdd is capable of. I do know that the drive i have is a 1.5GB/s however i have not checked it for a jumper. The hdd that my lappy shipped with has the 1.5GB/s transfer rate.

Dell :: Power Adaptor Compatability

Feb 27, 2010

I own a Studio 1557 that uses an adaptor with 19.5V/4.62A output.

The jack sizes are identical. Can we use each other's adaptors? My assumption is that I might get away with both but that my wife might damage her laptop with my adaptor due to the higher output.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 And SATAII

Mar 18, 2010

Does anyone know if the Vostro 1500 supports SATAII? I'm about to buy an SSD for my Vostro but if it doesn't support SATAII then I'm not really going to see a major difference..

I planning on upgrading to a new laptop soon and bring that SSD with it, but wanted to know what I should be expecting out of the 1500..

Sony :: How Can I Check If My Notebook Supports SATAII

Sep 30, 2009

I'm thinking about changing my HDD, since it's a 4200rpm 200GB.

I was thinking about getting a Samsung SATAII 7200rpm( storage doesn't matter that much, I already own an external device, as long as it's not less than my current HDD ).

But I was told that my Vaio model, VGN FZ140E, doesn't support SATAII. So I'd have to choose a SATA 5400rpm HDD.

I'd like to ask you how can I check it this is true. If so, would changing my HDD be a noticeable upgrade?

Also, among these brands, which one would you choose( for better performance, low noise, low energy comsumption etc. ): Samsung, WD or Seagate?

Lenovo E130 11e E/Edge :: Speed Is Limited By SATAII Interface

Apr 12, 2013

I'm interested in thickness of HDD in E130. I read that in E125 was 7 mm HDD and there is troubles with 9 mm. So, is  E130 similar to E125(E130 is next-gen of this type netbooks, but there is huge posibility that Lenovo Engineers decided not to change HDD type)? Or 9 mm hard drive will work?
Installing msata breaks warranty agreement, doesn't it? amout msata SSD(i've read about installing SSD in other Thinkpad notebooks), but I need some proves for Edge E130:

1)Speed is limited by SATAII interface?
2)mSata drive as bootable device will work?
Last questions are not such important, but i'll happy, if Edge E130/E135 users will share their experience

Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2

Mar 9, 2010

Has anyone installed a SSD drive in this model with success? If so, does the BIOS need to be upgraded? I have a Vertex 120 SSD drive I'm not using and am thinking about putting it in the Sony and installing Win 7/32 bit.

I would like for all the current functions to work such as the camera and video card. Would this be a big issue or should I just reload the original OS(XP).

HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive

Mar 11, 2009

I am having problems with some Blu-Ray DVDs in my DV9774ca with a optiarc BC-5500A ATA.
When I put some Blu-Ray DVDs in the drive starts to spin and makes the normal searching noises for 30 seconds and then it stops without doing anything at all.

I decided to try download a firmware update, but the site says not to flash SATA drives with PATA firmware.

How can I find out what it is? I can only assume its SATA. The firmware I found is for PATA!

Also I assume that the firmware I already have is older than the downloadable version (not from H.P.). The downloadable version is 1.05 from November/08. I bought my laptop in Feb/08.

HP/Compaq :: Native Sata Support

Jan 31, 2009

I have an HP dv9000 laptop.

It came with Windows Vista, at one point I was dual-booting Vista/XP, and I am currently using Windows 7beta.

I recently went in my bios settings and tried to enable native sata support, and after that, my computer wouldn't go into Win7, until i disabled it again.

It was enabled when i first got my computer, and i had to disable it for XP compatibility. I figure, if it works with Vista, there's no reason it wouldnt work with Win7. Perhaps it's configured to run without the setting, so enabling it effs it up and confuses it. is there any way i can enable it again, preferably without having to do a full OS install?

HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option

Mar 18, 2009

I have a HP DV2000 (BIOs states it is a 2500) that I am trying to install XP over vista.

I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.

HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)

Sep 21, 2009

OS is Vista x86 32-bit.

We couldn't for the life of us get the Seagate HDD recognized when plugged inside the eSATA port. Worked fine via the alternative IEEE1394 connector, though. The "super-duper" trick recommended by the manufacturer, consisting of mere rescanning drives with the HDD manager in Computer Management did not effect in anything. Nor did installation of Intel's hard drive manager (which came with a driver update under the veil)

But the dealer whom he bought the HDD from insisted that the HDD worked fine via eSATA, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware problem, nor could a defective cable be the culprit, since he used the very same.

HP/Compaq :: DVD Drive Connected To Laptop With Sata To Esata Cable, Drive Is Not Recognized By Windows 7

Feb 22, 2010

I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using, a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.

I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly) basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition with an Intel 5 serie chipset,
PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it) so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in. [url] also my bios is almost configurable, I don't know why I can change the time, the date, the admin password, the boot order, virtualization, fan on/off that's pretty much it. so what options do I have if I want to make this dvd drive work?
