Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Upgrade my Harddisk

\015 I have four years old intel board D915GVWB. I want to upgrade my Hard disk 80Gb to 250 gb . can i do with out upgrade my drivers & BIOS?\015

Answers :

No, unfortunately the BIOS will need to be flashed. If your system is about 4 years old, then you probably are using INT13 BIOS which will recognize about 137 GB.

The flash will allow the BIOS routine to read the larger hard drives, possibly up to a terabyte. Also, you will probably be able to use faster RAM, fix any bugs in the system BIOS, and possibly other features.

Do you know how to flash your system BIOS? If you don't contact me by posting a response. I'll tell you how to do it step by step.
Yes you can. You only have to consider the type of drive that you have to purchase. If it is IDE, the wide flat wire or the SATA which has a narrow flat wire. Make sure you get the same type.
