Having problems with your Fujitsu LifeBookS6120 Notebook ?

S6120 didn't take 250GB memory

\015 I purchased an EIDE 2.5" 250GB to upgrade my Fujitsu S6120. when I reinstalled XP, the laptop only read 167GB. I ended up returning the hard drive. But now I upgraded the memory to max out the capacity at 2GB, and I am thinking about give it another try on the 250GB harddrive cuz my 60GB hard drive is about going out. Does anybody know why S6120 can't read more than 167GB out of 250GB??If in fact that's the max S6120 can read is 160GB, I would go and get the 160GB drive.All comments are greatly appreciated,thank you,Barch\015

Hi Barch

every processor has three types of buses.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. address bus
  2. \015\012
  3. data bus
  4. \015\012
  5. control bus
The size of address bus is responsible for the number of memory locations a processor can access.

The size of address bus is fixed for each processor.

Your processor can address that many memory locations only through its address bus.

That is why anything more than the limit of memory location is waste.

Thank You
