I am going to upgrade my hard drive and i would like to know what size a hard drive i can have. I have however heard there are restrictions as to the maximum size of the hard drive. My laptop is at the moment a basic Sony VAIO PCG-747 Thanks
I feel (from what I have gleaned from Google) that you are in difficulties with this one which has very limited upgrade possibilities.
To quote from "Overstock Auctions" talking of the RAM
[Sony VAIO PCG-747 32MB SDRAM PC66
High Quality Memory Specifically For Your System Your Sony VAIO PCG-747 only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in your computer.
Your System Information Maximum Memory: 128 MB Standard Memory: 32 or 64 MB (removable) Expansion Sockets: 2 sockets]
This is just the RAM... Win 2000 will not be happy with so little. I suggest that you do not even try the major upgrade you hope for with this elderly spec.
If you greatest need is for more disk space then consider an external hard drive which will also be very useful for transferring data if/or when you buy another computer.
any they will come up as a removerble drive if you have a desktop your prob better of getting a case and internel drive and "build you own" be warned thou you will need a desktop to format the drive first before it will work in the case (if you build it youself) or you just by a premade one and plug and play!
