Sony :: TX5N/B Hard Disk Upgade

Apr 1, 2009

I have had a disaster with my Vaio TX5N/B, the hard disc has given up with no warning, any way not to worry I thought I will take this opportunity of upgrading the HD unit from the Tohiba 100gb 1.8" ATA7 MK1011GAH, HDD1789 to a Toshiba 120gb 1.8" ATA7 MK1214GAH, HDD1902 unit, both have the ZIF-40 interface and run at the same speed. I have installed the unit but the BIOS is not recognising the unit, it finds the DVD/CD unit ok, I have the latest BIOS update installed

Has anyone come across this issue before or has any ideas on what I can try to get the BIOS to recognise the Unit

Sony :: Vaio TZ: Replace Hard Disk With SSD

Apr 13, 2009

I have a Vaio TZ180N laptop with a 5400RPM hard disk and Vista. The disk is incredibly slow in my opinion - especially since I use this as a development machine (perhaps not best suited for the job!!). I have 2GB memory in it, but that doesn't seem to help all that much as the system is constantly running at 90%+ memory usage.

I would like to replace the disk with an SSD disk if possible. Will this work?

I'm a novice when it comes to the hardware of a laptop and will need some advice. Are SSD drives basically compatible with the disk in the Vaio? If so, should I look for something specific while buying an SSD drive - such as a specific interface or something?

If this is possible, will this significantly improve the performance of my machine?

Acer Aspire V5-572 :: Disk Partition (win 8.1) - No Display After Rebooting

Sep 11, 2014

I have an aspire V5-572 notebook with win 8.1 and the only partition. I made 2 more partitions using AOMEI partitioning tool. after rebooting it shows the usual win 8 loading screen but no display comes then. complete blank screen and no desktop. 
1. I assume the partitioning was done perfectly as there was no error message
2. OS loading accordingly without any warning or error message
3. At the black screen the mouse movement showing and sometimes the wifi symbol flashing up at the almost middle-bottom of the screen.

HP CQ58-203SQ Recovery :: Cannot Install Windows 7 - Selected Disk Has MBR Partition Table

Nov 13, 2014

I was trying to install windows 7 when i got the "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GTP disks etc"  Error.
I know i needed to disable something in bios but this laptop's bios isn't very detailed , i tried disabling the Legacy boot and now the laptop doesn't boot up anymore, not even in bios. When i power it on all i get is a black screen and the Caps lock blinks twice.
I tried pressing the windows key+B+ power button for one second while the laptop is shut down but it didn't do anything.

Acer Aspire ES1-111M :: Can't Delete Recovery Partition To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 20, 2014

I've created a Factory Default Backup with a USB drive with Acer Recovery Management.  I see this message which tells me I can delete the recovery partion to free up disk space after I've created the backup but it never gives me the option to do so.
I DO get the option to remove the Driver Recovery Partition after backing it up to USB but not the 10GB Recovery Partition.  It's a a HUGE deal on a system that only has a 32GB hard drive.

HP Pavilion Dv6226us OS/Software :: Create VISTA Recovery Disk - Backup Partition Removed

Apr 8, 2014

A friend brought over her HP Pavilion dv6226us Laptop running VISTA.  The hard drive was full and the machine could not be used for anything.  Would like to wipe the dirve and start over, but need a VISTA recovery disk for the machine.  The D: partition where the  backup files from HP resides was removed from the drive so Recovery manager is not an option.  Checked the HP support site and there are not recovery disks available for HP for this model laptop with VISTA, at least when I entered all the information on the site it did not list anything.
Is there anything that can be done by copying the correct files from the WINDOWS directory on the C drive.

Dell :: Hard Drive Won't Load, Need New Partition?

Jul 23, 2007

I8200 with orginal 40GB hitachi HD DK23EB-40. So I left the notebook run overnight (nothing new) has cooling pad and another fan sitting on the side running air over it. When I came to in in the morning it was locked so I rebooted. I got an error message and it doesn't want to boot. It does boot with another HD I have so the HD is the problem. I previously had a problem with another used HD that had a problem like this on another laptop and had someone i know work on it. To me it looked like he made a partition and placed the whole corupted OS with files inside of a fresh os install. I don't want to try and do a repair with the reinstall CD. Tried that once and didn't work so I don't want to to take a chance. Anyone know what he might have done? I have partition magic 8 if this is what's needed, but how to do this?

Acer :: Hard Disk Overheating

Apr 25, 2010

i own an acer aspire 5630, which i bought in 2007. never had a problem with it, apart from cleaning the fan and heat sink from dust which i've done two or three times.

in the last week i've had a new overheating problem, which is that my hard disk has started getting extremely hot. now the fan is defiitely working, because i can hear it.

so i'm a bit confused about what to do. i thought perhaps the fan maybe isn't working as well as it has in the past, and that maybe i should just buy a new fan for it.

why the hard disk would be getting so hot all of a sudden,

HP/Compaq :: Hard Disk Temperature-70c

Jan 25, 2010

my laptop, hp pavillion g60-120us has been slowing down and crashing lately, so i ran hd tune to check it's temperature and found out it's running at around 62c with several programs running - firefox with multiple tabs, majic jack, hd tune, and the usual security-antiivirus and spyware.

when i first turn the laptop on, it starts at around 40c and quickly goes up to the 60's within 20-30 minutes.

when i run a scan of antivirus or ultimate defrag it tops out at around 70c.

the hd tuner hits critical hard disk temperature at 55c and pop ups a message every few seconds.

i've also run speedfan, and it tells me the same temperature.

is it normal for a laptop to run a temperature in the high 60's...should i put it on a block of dry ice, or move to the north pole?

Dell :: New Inspiron 15 W/ Windows 7 Hard Drive Partition

Jan 19, 2010

Just brought home a Dell Inspiron 15 from Best Buy tonight. While going through Windows Explorer and trying to figure out the goofy "Libraries" thing for Windows 7, I noticed that my hard drive is partitioned like so:

OS (C): 38.4GB free of 58.5GB
Local Disk (D): 186Gb free of 229GB

Now I am always used to everything being on 'C'. When I tried to copy all my stuff over from my previous Dell 1420, it wouldn't all copy over to any of the libraries or my "user" folder (Erin) since I didn't have enough space. So despite Windows 7 setting up all these nifty folders in my "Erin" folder (C:/Users), I can't fit all my stuff there.

Is Dell partitioning their hard-drives differently? Am I nuts for thinking mine is set up weird?

Dell Alienware M15X :: OEM Partition On Hard Drive

Feb 26, 2013

So, I recently have been having multiple issues with my laptop, so I reformatted the hard-drive and re-installed windows. In the process, I noticed a 39-gig OEM partition on my hard-drive.  After research, it seems like this is supposed to be a recovery partition with factory settings but I have been unable to access it, even after installing the Dell Datasafe (and consequently Alien Respawn.)

How I can restore the system to the recovery partition, as for whatever reason the drivers aren't working properly and I am having no backlights behind the keys or even the power button.  I've followed the 'correct' driver install order and it still isn't working.

Dell :: Latitude E4300 Second Hard Disk

Jul 18, 2009

Is it possible to install a second hard disk in E4300?

Earlier the option used to be available whilst configuring the E4300 online to add a second 1.8inch hard disk. Now it is no longer there. Can the same be ordered through a Dell rep? What exactly is it that comes when you order this?

I will be grateful if someone can share this info. This will be the deal maker/breaker for me on the E4300.
