Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 8200 Notebook ?
Hard drive replacement.
can I use 160Gb other than 120Gb original hard drive?
how to recover data from dead hard drive?
will Seagate replace the drive if it is over 1 year warranty?
If the drive is out of warranty then no....seagate will not honor an expired warranty. As far as the swapped hard drive yea you can swap for a larger drive as long as it is the same dimention (2.5/3.5 ect) and connect (SATA/PATA/ATA/IDE) as far as loading windows you are gonna have to get your hands on a usb cdr drive....either that or create an ISO image of your operating system on a sd card. Good luck
