HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.

\015 Hello. I have a ACER extensa 6601 Wlmi with a 60 GB HDD. I have upgraded the HDD to 180GB HDD and installed XP SP3. The HDD is reported as 103GB in XP instead of 180GB. No Bios upgrade available. BIGLBA is enabled too. Partitionmagic also sees it as 103GB drive.What do i do?\015

Answers :

The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
\015\012Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Good morning! I bought a second hand PC with Pentium 4 1.7 GHz processor, 64 MB NVIDIA VGA Card & 512 (2x256) MB Memory sticks but without HDD.

Bad Harddrive I spoke with one of your tech-reps (Byteguy) Great help, but I want to go deeper. After doing a great deal of research, I have found that Dell places a Diagnostic partition on the front of the drive that can not be accessed through normal means. I believe my failure is due to a firmware corruption. Dell only has the upgraded firmware flash for the C610 and I have a Fujitsu MHS2020AT harddrive. Fujitsu does not have the firmware flash for this anymore and I can't find it anywhere. D
