HP/Compaq :: What Drive To Replace DVD-RW In NX9420

Jul 19, 2009

to figure the mess that are DVD laptop model numbers? I assume from the past that the bay in my NX9420 is a 9.5mm multi-bay II, yes?

I was going to grab a UJ-852 drive as it is listed as compatible with the NW9440...and near as I recall the only difference between the two models was the graphics card options and the included warranties.

My NX9420 has been running pretty much 24/7 since I bought in in around in early 2007.

Been through three HDD upgrades and now at 500GB, 4GB RAM...still plugging along wonderfully. Until the DVD drive started popping open just because...I finally had enough, took it out, opened it up and the danged front ribbon cable was so weakened it just fell apart in the middle at the bend...soooo, no real hope of repair so I felt it best to just upgrade the drive to something newer...hence does the UJ-852 and will it fit...I truly have looked, emailed vendors and cannot seem to figure out of the drives are only for the external Multi-bay II or I can remove any attached adapter and use the old mounting bracket then slide it into the bay and be done...maybe a new drive but nothing more...

HP/Compaq :: HP Nx9420 MXM III Upgrade

Aug 17, 2009

Iíve been scouring the web in between work looking for a master 3870 BIOS, but havenít been able to find one. My wife killed her HP nx9420 vid card by leaving it on the bed, suffocating the old X1600. I figured if I'm going through the time, money, and effort to replace it, I might as well upgrade to a better GPU. I verified card dimensions, part numbers, slot types, etc before purchasing the Mobility 3870 as a replacement, but the brains of the system is another issue. I may need a couple different BIOS files to attempt this since the 3870s were never a native component on any HP notebooks and I may need to compare hex values and modify some features within it to get it working.

HP/Compaq :: Update On Nx9420

Jul 5, 2009

I have had plans to upgrade for over a year now and it is slowly starting to pan out. Below are the original relevant specs of the notebook when purchased and I do have quite an extensive plan for the upgrade of this great machine.

- Intel Core Duo processor T2400 (1.83-GHz, 667-MHz FSB, 2-MB L2 cache)
- 17.0-inch WSXGA+ wide viewing angle BrightView display with 1680 x 1050 resolution and 16M colors
- 1GB (1x1GB) 533-MHz DDR2 SDRAM
- ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics controller with 256 MB of discrete video memory
- 100GB 5400RPM Hard Disk Drive (Hitachi)
- 8-cell high capacity Lithium-Ion (68Wh)
- 90W AC power adapter

These specs are a bit outdated for today's standards but I hope to bring out the potential that this motherboard can support............

HP/Compaq :: Nx9420: Dead Battery

Sep 16, 2009

The battery is dead after 2.5 years. Charge it for a day, remove the power cord and the laptop won't start.

I don't know if I should go for a new battery or new cells?

Also, how do I open the battery the easiest way? I'd like to see if someone else have done it before I do, I guess there's a lot of glue in it that makes it difficult to open.

Dell :: XPS 1640: Replace Slot Loading Optical Drive With Hard Drive And Caddy

Sep 29, 2009

I'm thinking of removing my DVD drive and replacing it with a caddy and hard drive as explained here.

I don't use the DVD drive very often and would much prefer a 500GB or 1TB hard drive in there. The DVD drive can then be used externally via the eSATA port using this cable.

The ideal solution would be to use this NewmodeUS caddy as it supports the larger 12.7mm 1TB 2.5" hard drives and has a removable faceplate. The problem is the price.

At $55 including postage to the UK plus customs, VAT and clearance fees on top it's going to work out pretty expensive for what is essentially a slimline SATA to SATA extension

Sony :: Can I Replace The SSD Drive On A New Z With A LARGER SSD

Mar 25, 2010

I used to buy the sony Z's a couple of years ago and at the time they only offered slower small drives.

I could replace those with faster 7200RPM drives in larger sizes. Then when they started offering larger drives,

it was still cheaper to buy it with a stock 5400RPM drive and buy a larger 7200RPM drive seperately

Sony :: Replace Optical Drive With Mechanical HDD

May 11, 2010

I know this has been asked many times already, but I am still confused about how well a large storage HDD can be integrated.

If I plut in something like the ultrabay, wouldn't the case be opened and let in a lot of dust into the system? I watched a youtube video with someone trying to do the same on an older Z.

He went the ghetto route and use full size SATA cable. At the end not only is there hole where the optical drive used to be

Sony :: Can I Replace Optical Drive In Vaio SR

Nov 28, 2009

if I can replace the optical drive in the Vaio SR590? It's a DVDRW, I want to put in Bluray. If Bluray drops in price, and I get a slim bluray drive, can I put it in the SR590? Looking at the computer, it seems the current drive's design is a bit different than a standard notebook optical drive. Seems like it will stick out a bit on the sides...

Sony :: VAIO TTUpgrade SSD From 128 GB To 256/512 GB & Replace Optical Drive With SSD

Dec 31, 2009

I bought a VAIO TT couple of months back - at a time when it was being removed from shelves (in anticipation of VAIO X launch). At that time I hurried and picked up the only model that was available here in Amsterdam.

Its a TT21WN model with 128 GB SSD + Optical Drive (DVD). The SSD in use is a Samsung model - MMBQE28GFMUP-MVA (Slim uSATA).

Now ofcourse 128 GB is not enough so here is what I want to do:

1. Upgrade the 128 GB SSD to 256 GB or 512 GB if possible AND

2. Replace the Optical Drive with another SSD (max capacity possible)

regarding:

- Where can I find the SSD with such capacity and good quality

- How do I replace the current SSD with the new one (guide/manual)... is it easy/hard? Should I go to a service center instead of doing it myself?

- Is it possible to replace the Optical Drive with SSD? Again how easy or hard is it, and how to go about it?

Apple :: Replace DVD With Hard Drive - 2008 15" MBP

Feb 22, 2010

Like all 2008 MacBook Pros, my DVD burner does not work.

Can I take it out and somehow work a hard drive in that same space?

What is really annoying is that I used an external DVD burner most of the time, specifically to protect the built-in DVD burner, so when I went to resell it... I would not have to list "perfect except the DVD burner does not work."

Acer :: 3680SMART HDD Warning, Need To Replace Drive- What About Service Partition

Apr 18, 2010

I recently received an Acer 3680. Upon bootup, it gives a SMART error for the HDD, warning of imminent failure and a need to back up all files. According to the previous owner, it has been doing this for months. I want to repace the HDD, but have some concerns about the service / recovery partition. I recently made some back-up CD's and reinstalled Windows Vista Home Basic. This was done to wipe out the previous owner's data, plus see if the backup dics really would work. The CD's I made are the only discs I have for it.

If I buy a new hard disk drive (larger and a different model than the current one), will I be able to create a service partition on it, with whatever information is supposed to be on the service partition?

Will the backup CD's I made from the eRecovery software be able to install the OS onto a new hard drive, or will they only work with that exact model drive?

Basically, I am preferring a new HDD that will be partitioned and have the data just like the current one, but larger, with no SMART errors. Is this possible?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Replace And Load Os On Hard Drive?

Jan 4, 2015

I replaced the hard drive on my inspiron 1545 and tried to restore it with the dell data safe disks that I made when I got the machine.  Windows 7 loaded but I couldn't do anything with it,  It was very slow, I couldn't even get it to update. So I loaded in the windows 7 disk that came with it and now I have windows up and running and updated.  My question is what drivers do I need to install.  I went to dell/support and entered my service tag number and it came up with a list of drivers (46 of them), some I know I need but others seem to be for things I don't know if I have on the computer.  How do I know which ones I need?

Also I read something about a file called Dell System Software but its not on the drivers list.  Do I need it or not?

HP/Compaq :: 8530p Replace Fan

Jan 29, 2009

Very nice machine in every other aspect, except for the noisy fan that I've learned from reading here and elsewhere that HP does not recognize as a problem.

So, I'm thinking of replacing it myself. Can I do that without voiding my warranty? What about having an authorized HP repair center do it for me, if I shell out for the fan myself?

what fan to use? And is there a service manual around?

HP/Compaq :: Replace Laptop DVD Burner

I don't know the model, anyway it's still under warranty and I'm wonder if she will have to send the laptop back in order for them to replace it. Sending it back is a big no no, and I can replace the drive myself.

HP/Compaq :: Which Motherboard Do I Buy To Replace My Broken One

Jul 29, 2009

I have a DV9000, 17inch. A number (that I think is significant) 439112-001 is on the bottom of the laptop.

I need to buy a refurbished/spare part motherboard to replace the one that died in my other computer, but I can't figure out which one to buy. At first I thought it was as simple as buying a used DV9000 laptop or motherboard, but apparently not only does the screen size (13 vs 19 inch) matter, but also a number.

I see numbers on ebay with stuff like "447983-001"--that's why I thought that one number on the bottom of mine was important. But I can't find that number on any motherboard on ebay, and it only turns up 300 pages on google, which leads me to believe it isn't the right number.

HP/Compaq :: Replace M1330 With Dv5t

Jan 7, 2009

I have an opportunity to buy an HP DV5-1157CA in Canada for a great price:

[url]

It's a 15.4" which makes it bigger obviously than the m1330.

Pro's:
-----
Centrino 2/Montevino platform
4 GB vs. 3GB that I have
9600M GT vs. 8400M GS
possible avoidance of future GPU problems
great clearance price of $997 Canadian

Con's:
------
bigger form factor
plastic chassis vs. magnesium alloy and aluminum
lower battery life
no fingerprint reader
still an Nvidia GPU (can we trust Nvidia anymore)
2 Ghz P7350 vs. 2.4 Ghz T8300

HP/Compaq :: What Happens When You Replace The Base Enclosure

Sep 28, 2009

If your base enclosure (the bottom chassis cover) gets accidentally damaged, what happens to the service tag when you replace that part yourself?

You see, that part carries the service tag on it for warranty purposes. I know the mobo is also tagged (tattoo'd) with the service tag info, but then what happens if the mobo dies, and you have replaced the bottom cover?

My guess is that you could peel off the service tag from the old part and somehow glue it onto the new one, which wouldn't be very nice.

Also what would HP do if they were carrying out the repair?
