Hi all, I have an ACER Aspire T120 with original HDD (WD400EB-00CPFO). I want to replace this 40gig with something bigger. I 'think' my existing is a Western Digital ATA133 (IDE) tho' i'm willing to be corrected. I obviously want to get the same "TYPE" as the existing,,, not necessarily brand-wise ! Can anyone confirm the type of the WD400EB-00CPFO please,,, & where to go for a great deal for a replacement at the moment ? Am looking at 120/160/200 etc.
FRUIT BAT: Thanks - I had assumed (!) it was serial,,, so that's one help. SMILER: Thanks - I hadn't even thought of that ! All I have from Acer is "Probable upgrades are: Upgrade to High Capacity HDD" Apart from upgrading the RAM (& adding a LG DVD RW as suggested in these pages - thanks)the kit is as original. Does anyone know what the max size might be then please ? It's no use my asking ACER,,, as they seem to be a little lax in the Customer Care department ! thanks so far -- anything else appreciated ?
SMILER: Not sure,,,,, (just been looking into the link supplied by terryf but as my machine is playing up, am having trouble finding what I want ! (am having trouble connecting to links etc,,,, I was taking the opportunity to upgrade the HDD whilst i'm having it doctored !) Can I find the version without rebooting ? I have Sandra ???
Thanks all, it looks like i'll be going for Seagate 120gb PATA (IDE) from e-buyer (Free delivery) One last question, does it matter whether I go for ATA100 or ATA133 ? I'm almost certain that my machine has a 133 bus ?!?! as usual - great & friendly help. thanks again -- Furkin
I am running XP & SP2. I also have a copy of what is called Final Edition of XP ?!?! (as opposed to 'beta' version that we may be now using ???) Is there such a thing ? It didn't cost me anything, so it wasn't a 'sales spiel' ! cheers all
