  • 1. New HD for an N1000c?
    Hi all, I have a Compaq Presario Evo N1000c laptop and the hd is going out and it is a 30G'er. I would like to put something in that is at least 120G but I haven't been able to figure out if the interface is IDE/SATA or what. The hd that I pulled out has 22 ruws of pins with one pin missing on the 13th row. What is this called? thanks, charles.....
  • 2. Dell Latitude C840 Fastest CPU?
    I have an old clunker Dell Latitude C840 with a 1.6GHz P4M processor in it. Does anybody know how fast of a processor will work in this machine? Can this be easily upgraded? If so, is there a specific CPU suffix or code number I should look for? Is it worth looking for a socket pull on e-bay for an upgrade, or is it a case of maximizing the CPU speed will make it about 10% faster, ergo not worth the effort? -- remove 'no_spam_' from address if responding directly

It might be that the existing BIOS is too old to manage a newer Linux. Q

    Hi, I've been given an old one of these laptops and I was going to try to nurse it back to health by getting replacements for broken bits and stuff, but I thought I'd try to boot a few OSes that I intend to run on it. I've tried DragonFly BSD 2.0 and Ubuntu i386 Hardy and both fail when the BIOS states "searching for boot record on CDROM..." then it says "not found", yet when I boot the XP disc, it finds one fine! What's going on? Thanks, Luke.
  • 5. Are CD/DVD laptops connections all of the same?
    Are all CD/DVD drives in laptops all the same? I am asking because I pulled out one of my spare MX6124 DVD burners and I was thinking of making an external USB DVD drive out of it. And I was hoping if I bought one of those external USB cases that it would work. Although the connections look a little strange to me. I never even noticed the laptop CD/DVD connections before. They don't look like hard drive IDE connections like I thought they were. I did buy and get yesterday from Hong Kong of all places, an external USB DVD burner. Looks very nice, but can't read anything after 5 to 10 minutes (never even tried burning anything). I popped the cover off and no way would my MX6124 connect to it. There are no plugs inside and it is all soldered. -- Bill Gateway Celeron M 370 (1.5GHZ) MX6124 (laptop) w/2GB Windows XP Home SP2 (120GB HD) Intel(r) 910GML (64MB shared)

Thanks for your suggestions, Norb

1.Entry Level Centrino: Tosiba M10, IBM R40 or Dell 600m

Hi everyone, I am just about to purchase two entry-level centrino
laptops for my sister and I (for postgrad purposes). I have narrowed
down my choice to the following three, listed below. Buying two M10's
will save me between 400-560 Euro (approx $445/GBP280-$620/GBP395) and
seems the best value. IBM's build-quality means the R40 is still in
the running, and I'm unsure about the Dell. I'm particularly
interested in hearing from owners of new M10's/R40's, but advice from
all quarters is really appreciated!

                   (XP Pro is the OS on all three)
(1) Toshiba Satellite Pro M10 - 1299 Euro (excluding VAT)
P-M 1.3GHz/256MB DDR RAM/40GB SMART/DVD-CDRW/15"TFT/NVIDIA GeForce4
420 Go 32MBDDR RAM/WiFi-Intel 802.11b integrated, (802.11a/b) ready

(2) IBM ThinkPad R40 - 1495 Euro (")
P-M 1.30GHz/256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM/40GB(ATA-100(Enhanced
IDE))/DVD-CDRW/14.1"TFT/ATI RADEON 7500 32MBDDR SDRAM/WiFi-Intel PRO
802.11b

(3) Dell Latitude 600m - 1579 Euro (")
P-M 1.3 GHz/512MB (266MHz) DDR RAM/40GB(Removable EIDE
ATA-100)/DVD-CDRW/14.1"TFT/ATI RADEON 9000 32MBDDR SDRAM/WiFi-Intel
PRO 802.11b or Dell TrueMobile 1300 Wireless 802.11 b/g (Also includes
3 years International Next Business Day On-Site service)

Also do people know if these machines have 5,400 RPM HD (or better
still, 7200) - I don't want a system with the useless 4,500 RPM if I
can help it?!

3.New owner of IBM T41 - Strange HD noise?

This is my 9th or 10th notebook - third this year - and this is the
first time that I've come across an issue like this, if it's an issue
at all.  Given that my T41 has the funky new "parking" protection and
the gyroscope monitoring, I don't know that this *is* a problem and
wanted to check with other IBM T41 owners.

When the HD is being accessed, it's normal and quiet.  When it's
completely idle, it's quiet.  However, when Windows is idly accessing
the hard drive it clicks loudly.  What I mean by this is that if you
leave an XP box on for a while, you will see the HD light blink from
time to time as the virtual memory is checked or whatever - that's
when I heard the click.

The HD light blinks for less than a second when the click happens -
it's obvious that the HD is being accessed - and the click is somewhat
loud, for a HD.  IBM tech support had me download a "Fitness Test"
application and that returned "all systems are OK" in the form of a
0x00 code.

So.  Is anyone else having this issue?  This is the 1.6GHz/40GB
version, model 2379.

Thanks!

4.USB to serial converter for IBM T41?

Can anyone recommend a good USB to Serial converter for these new
Thinkpads that don't have serial ports!  I need it for mainly terminal
type access programs (Hyperterminal, Reflections, etc.)

5.IBM T41 hard drive noise (Hitachi Travelstar 40GNX)

My T41 has a Hitachi Travelstar 40GNX (IC25N040ATCS05) hard drive.
Otherwise I'm very happy with the laptop but the hard drive is making
too much noise for my taste especially during heavy load.
Unfortunately it also makes annoying clicks and other not so loud
noises while (almost) idling. The laptop is about 8 monts old.

I guess the problem is in the drive and not in the laptop body design.
Does anyone else have such experiences with the said drive or T41? Is
the noise a feature of 40GNX? Would some other hard drive be quieter
inside the T41?

Thanks in advance for your help.
