You should be able to...

But why do you think you need a better one?

Bset to check that you can have another HDD with a HP machine. If i'm not mistaken they have restore discs so i would check that you can install the software of the CD to new disc first.

if your hdd is a small one ie less than say 10GB then you can fit a bigger one say 60/80 or 120GB. you may possibly have to update your bios to run it though.

Try here.

Scan down to installing a second hard drive.

Or removing a preexisting hard drive.

if yes, then what is the maximum even though i have seen the previous posts.

even if your bios cannot work a larger one and you cannot upgrade it you can get a pci card that will run your big hard drive. In my no. 2 pc I could not upgrade the bios but bought this card. The bios in your mobo has to have all drives set to none. When you boot up the pc does its normal tests and reports no hard drive. The new card now kicks in and identifies the drive. From then on the pc runs your new drive perfectly.
