  • Satellite P30 - the Maximum hard disk size

    Hello
    I have a Satellite P30-141 with BIOS version 1.40 works with XP pro SP2.
    The hard drive is a 60 GB model and I want to move to a larger model.
    I think a 160 GB Seagate 5400.3 model but I'm not sure if the BIOS can support such a large unit. Did anyone done this before? What is the biggest player, that you put in your P30?
    I also have the Hitachi 7K 100 100 GB as a second option if the Seagate won t work.
    Thanks for your help.

  • Drive HARD Max size for Satellite 3000-514 with BIOS 2.30

    Hi people!

    What is the largest size HD notebook with BIOS 2.30 recognizes.
    I have not found any FAQ information ragarding this version of BIOS.

    Thx for your help.

    Hello

    Satellite 3000-514 supports the HARD disk sizes up to 30 GB.
    You need a disk HARD 2.5 ", the 9.5 mm support bus master IDE, synchronous Ultra DMA 33/66

    Larger sizes of HARD drive are not supported, and I guess that the BIOS will not recognize it.

  • Maximum hard drive size in the Lenovo 3000 N100

    I have Lenovo 3000 N100

    It came with 100 GB hard drive 5400 RPM

    What is the maximum hard disk that can be used. Is it possible to only 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM?

    Thanks for the answer

    No, I'm this based on the Avenue of the planets. Kidding.

    I base this experience with laptops cheaper and lower quality supporting better hard disks, processor, etc. etc.

    Also the fact that some N100 configurations included a 250 GB SATA 5400 RPM hard drive. No reason why will not work a 7200 RPM drive.

    We invite you to seek advice elsewhere.

  • Envy touchsmart 15 - new HARD disk size

    I recently ordered a Touchsmart from HP Envy 15-j005sa that has a 1 TB HARD drive. I'm looking to clone the orignial in an mSATA SSD drive so I was wondering what size is recommended.  How much space is used when it is new so using this information can buy a large enough disk size?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello

    There is that little clone options b clone the HARD disk which means that you have the mSATA SSD equal or more 1 TB (b) clone c ONLY: This means you the mSATA SSD equal or superior to c:... My suggestion: shrink C: for small size say even 60 GB or 120 GB (if you don't have a lot of programs installed) FRONT of clone and ONLY clone C: normally larger (capacity) is better because you can install more programs that him.

    Kind regards.

    Hi dynamitenews

     

    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?

     

    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    BIOS WARNING-
    Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

     

    I hope this helps.

  • Can I reduce the size of the pagefile, or does this size for optimal performance of the rig?

    Hi all.

    I recently increased my memory of 4 GB to 12 GB.  I noticed that my pagefile has increased in size that corresponds to the installed memory.  Can I reduce the size of the pagefile, or does this size for optimal performance of the rig.

    See you soon.

    Original title: size of pagefile.

    Swap files are always important. UNIX, Linux, MacOS and Windows all set up to Exchange files and use them. Some applications also require the existence of a file...

    The only people who need to limit the size of pagefile are those whose disk space is very valuable to the critical operations of mission currently running on the computer.

    Do not be fooled into thinking that the loading RAM is the best option, because it's not like people in the above paragraph you would say.

    User jnftsi0 cannot be used by the Oracle Installer or start the Oracle process, because what is the root group.

    If the user jnftsi0 is used by Oracle install or start Oracle process should then be removed from the root group, otherwise you can ignore it.

  • Earn money with the BIOS password?

    Hello

    I have an Inspiron 640 m (same as e1405), and I put a BIOS password like two years ago, when I bought the machine. Now, I wanted to change something, and I don't remember the password. Now it is true that I myself am a morron to set a password and then forget, but to actually be forced to pay Dell a $ 36 just to have access to my own machine seems kind of evil.

    So far I did not have many problems with Dell. There were a few problems when he left, but I didn't expect much for the price, and Dell has voluntarily replaced my broken keyboard while the machine was still under warranty.

    But charge me money to give Master of passwords really scratch my head. What is the point of this policy? I'm going to buy a Dell again when I know that even for such a small, Dell will charge me if I'm not under warranty anymore? I do not. There is nothing broken on my lap top, there is nothing to replace. No, it is not yet a problem of software or any other problem that Dell would have to solve. I want just a check on my own camera, and I don't have it because of this policy.

    In any case, I find it very disturbing Dell charge me for this. Oh and if she * really * has such a load of work that managers of the floor had to decide to start charging die like me to give Master of passwords, so why not just implement a webinterface for registered clients retrieve the password? Again, I have the original receipt, order numbers etc. for someone like me could just connect to their user account, enter the title and get the password. Not much. But no, I have to call the expensive telemarketing and pay $ 36 to get the password. Oh and the people who buy the lap tops off eBay are extinct, even worse than me if they cannot provide proof of purchase. This whole business of BIOS locking does not prevent flight anyway. If a thief finds a machine, that it can't unlock, he can always sell it on eBay or trash.

    I am disappointed.

    Kind regards

    Carl.

    "Yes, you paid for the protection and guarantee once, but he missed."

    When I said that I already paid, I said that I paid for the complete system, including the hardware and software level, including the password that belongs to me and it should be bundled with the system or be freely accessible, for example through the online account. Lost password should not be treated as a case of warranty as noted previously, because there is nothing wrong with the machine, or hardware or software. I am missing just a password which is part of the software on my machine, I paid when I bought it.

    dgkpcon
    Remember, when a warranty runs out, that's all. And the software is attatched to such a system has expired.

    I agree that you can always see all kinds of service strictly as a compliance to a contract. A contract, such that given warranty on one or three years or any other period of time. Then, when the time runs out, the seller of the product, in this case Dell, has no obligation whatsoever to give free support. I can still say however (again, leaving only the made the master password belongs to me, and that I should get it for free because I paid for my machine with the protection of password part of it) that's not very friendly Dell charges $ 36 for a simple question like that. It's all simply do not trust to Dell as a reliable and friendly company, while doing exactly the opposite. At least, it seems greedy money charge for a question like this. Of course, you can buy anything with money, but Dell is clearly lacking chances with the questions exactly like this, where sums of money are charged, which are very little to a giant like Dell, still a lot for a single client. If Dell could give the password for me for free, I would tell my friends, their recommendation to buy Dell hardware and experience with Dell is especially a nice. As it was, however, charged $ 36 for a false problem, I feel like Dell is trying to squeeze every last penny out of their customers.

    I must admit, the market is not the same as 10 years, where Dell was famous for the good support and build quality of material. Everything must be cheap, competition is strong, and Yes, every penny counts. But this is no reason for customers offend with this kind of service charges when there is in fact no need for service.

    I need not any service, I want to just my master password.

    These certainly of 36 dollars are a greater loss in brand image, to a profit in money.

  • X 60 with the Bios V1.52 V2.18 and Power Manager

    Hello out there

    I got a X 60 original "2510' with 2Gig Ram and 80gig HDD.  Since I've upgraded to the Bios V2.18 the start in the menu right spot icon lower does not exactly reflect the remaining autonomy statute.

    I suspect it has something to do with the BIOS update.  It was working fine before V2.18.

    Can someone please shed some light on this.
