A: Upgrade SSD in a HP Notebook 15-ay011nr 15.6-Inch Laptop

Here is the Manual: Manual See p. 50. That shows replacement of the 2.5 inch drive. Page 55 shows an M.2 mSSD. However, the are some issues right now with HP Notebooks and trying to add an aftermarket M.2. I can get more specific if you like but right now the best advice is just to install a 2.5 inch SSD drive in place of the hard drive.

A:HDD upgrade "HP 14-an013nr 14-Inch Notebook"

Hi, It is not a normal SSD nor a normal M.2 SSD, it is an eMMC drive. On many laptops, this drive is soldered to the motherborad. On your machine, you can upgrade to 64GB only using part number:  903803-001. Page 34 of the Maintenance and Service Guide on the following link will show you how to replace the drive.      http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-14-Notebook-PC-series/10862293/model/11992112/manuals/ Note: The manual says this work must be done by  Authorized Service Provider parts. This implies void warranty if you do it yourself. Regards.

Is there a hardware manual available for HP Laptop 15-ay011nr?  If not, how is the hard drive replaced? This laptop is quite a departure from my experience with previous HP laptops and servers.  I was able to easily find the hardware manual for every other HP laptop or server I have worked on, not so with 15-ay011nr.  On every other HP laptop I was able to find the back covers to replace memory and hard drive, not so for this laptop.  THere aren't any covers on the back of this laptop.

Hi,
I have an older desktop computer (emachines t2885) which has an 80GB 3.5" ide hard drive, and space for one more drive. I also have an unused 320GB laptop (2.5") drive. I was wondering if there is a way to hook this up internally, with an adapter of some sort, if that is at all possible, or would I be better off with an external enclosure? my only reserve to going external is that i want to use the drive for movies/games etc and USB can be slow sometimes. I have also seen pci cards for e-sata... is this an option here? Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi, I have a 755CX ThinkPad. The monitor on it is about 12 inches big, but for some reason, windows 98 Only uses up about 10 inches of the screen, and the rest of the screen is still lighted.
I tried changing all of the display options and still no difference.

Perhaps this is a driver problem?

This might be the wrong place for this question, so feel free to move it.

At the moment I run a latitude C600 (hence the sig), last night whilst lying in bed looking at the ceiling, trying had to nod off (dont you hate insomnia) I was struck by the thought of trying to run my laptop on a 3.5 inch drive instead of the Mini 2.5 inch that's in it now.

I can picture how I would go about it, but I need to know how to power it,

At the moment I have a cable that plugs into an IDE socket on a Mobo and then you can plug the 2.5 inch drive into it and it has a power lead that links only to the 5v ( I think) which powers the drive.

Question, ,,can a standard 3.5 inch run on just the 5v supplied to a 2.5 inch drive or does it need the 12v supplied on the yellow wire as well as the 5v on the red (or is it the other way round).

So now you ask "why" would I want to do it, same as why people climb mountains and swim the Channal, Coz I just want to know if it can be done.
 

A:Using a 3.5 inch drive on a laptop

The drive motors run on 12V, so yes, you need it.

My Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop, which was bought towards the beginning of this century, currently has a loud, slow, and very warm IBM TravelStar DJSA-210 hard disk. Needless to say, it's very old, and I would like to have a quieter, cooler, and faster laptop.



I've been eyeing a purchase of Addonics' CF Hard Drive Adapter and a nice big CF card to replace the hard disk. However, I just noticed today that the card adapter has 44 pins, while the hard disk has 44 contacts on a PCB-type connector.

Is there some type of adapter to brige these two connectors, or are there any other affordable ways to install flash-based storage (dedicated SSD or otherwise)? Or am I SOL and should get a new laptop?

I am studying MBA now online while working at the university I go to I am making heavy use of spreadsheets and have a visual disability. My current computer is an HP TS15 from 2013. I do like to game casually at 720p or what ever as long as it doesn't lag. I record the class sessions using OBS which makes the computer lag a fair bit. Honestly I could do without the touch screen too it just gets all greasy from touching and professors end up touching it to show me something not knowing it is touch and messing something up. This is what my specs are now.

AMD A10 5745M, 8GB ram, 1TB 5400rpm HDD, Radeon hd 8610G + 8600M dual graphics.

I do want something 17 inch with a low- mid rage graphics card for the occasional game while I travel home. I also would like it to have easy access to the HDD and ram through the bottom. MY current laptop cannot have the hard drive easily replaced which is annoying. the whole computer has to be torn apart just to get at the HDD.

I would like to spend anywhere from 500-750$ and this is my current idea

Hello Lenovo, I recently bought ( Aug-2016 ) a Lenovo Y700 15.6" laptop with the 16 GB variant. When I opened the laptop and started the windows, the first thing I noticed that, the screen is dimmer on the right side and bright on the left side. It is not easy noticeable but it bothers me a lot sometimes when the screen is completely WHITE. Only then it is easy to identify the brightness issue. I am not sure if this is how backlit LED IPS panels work, but will be happy if anyone from Lenovo can clarify it.  The brightness just fades from centre to the right side of the screen, but the fade is very minute it is not easily captured on the pic to share. My query is, should I be bothered ? Should I get Lenovo team to check it ? Or is it anyother way to reproduce the issue in a better way to take a decision as to ask for support ? Awaiting your inputs.

Hello, I am very interested in purchasing an HP Spectre x360 laptop; however, I have been waiting for several months in hopes for the 15.6 inch version to become available in the Ash Silver color. Currently, only the 13.3 inch Spectre comes in Ash Silver (which is a brown color with gold accent designs). I have contacted HP sales representatives and unfortunately they are not privy to this information. They did state that they've received a large volume of inquiries and interest in this specific Ash Silver laptop color, so it seems like more people than just myself would like to see other laptop options available in this color combination. If there are plans to manufacture the 15.6 inch HP Spectre laptop in the Ash Silver color in the near future, could you please let me know? I desperately need a new laptop but have been holding out until the 15.6 inch Spectre x360 is available in the Ash Silver color I want. I'd rather not continue waiting if there is no chance the larger laptop will be produced in this color. Thank you for reviewing this question.

I have no experience with SATA to this point so please pardon my ignorance.
 

A:18-inch vs 24-inch SATA cables??

I can't imagine there's be any measurable difference. SATA uses real shielded cables with termination at both ends, so electrical interference that you get with ATA cables shouldn't be an issue.

6 inch thick white lines down my laptop screen. 2 of them are solid white the others are fairly transparent but very noticeable, spaced out across the whole screen. The laptop itself works perfectly and the lines have been there a long time. There was only 1 to start with but its gotten worse over time. I am using an external monitor and play games a fair amount without any problems. I am wondering is this a screen or inverter issue or will i need a new motherboard for my laptop for a new graphics chip?

If you know about how to open inside the laptop, first check out the connection cable is seated properly between screen and mobo. But mostly times, you have to replace screen. There is no problem on Motherboard and screen inverter.

Turned off SuperFetch, turned off all app notifications, turned off BITS.

Installed the latest device drivers from Dell, flashed the BIOS, Chipset, Video Drivers.
Turning off SpeedStep in BIOS improved performance dramatically but the computer still does this.
The BIOS diagnostic tool didn't show up any hardware problems.
Curiously I am able to delay this from happening if I don't access the file system, ie use Windows Explorer. Opening any folders from the desktop instantly causes this problem.

Hi IVANB303,
Looks like you have basically tried most possible required steps to isolate the issue.
Restart the system and check in Safe mode - http://bit.ly/1LHcO2c if it works fine.
Create a local admin account and check if it works - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
Run a stress test through Support Assist - http://dell.to/1NEc1Y4
Also, run an extended test on the HDD through onboard diagnostics - restart and press f12 key on starup - and check for any possible errors.

Hi there

Got a nice light small laptop(screen 14 inch - enough for travelling) which has a native resolution of 1080 X 1920 --much better than the usual 768 X 1366 - especially when viewing movies etc. The display is really a significant improvement over the bog standard 768 X 1366 and really noticeable also when typing word documents or reading text.

(For travelling etc the 14 inch size is far more convenient than the more usual 16 - 17 inch sizes).

However the windows standard texts are tiny (boxes, drop down menus etc etc). -- I fixed most of it by adjusting text size settings and display to 150% -- the start menu items still have too small text.

If I increase the display resolution to 175% things like file explorer fail to start when clicked and the screen refreshes periodically - so set back to 150%.

Any body know of a way to increase text size on the Start menu.

Funnily enough when you use the WIN+X key / right mouse click on start button the text sizes in that list are fine --it's just the standard start menu when you click the windows start button.

I'm not sure what it is with I.T developers but it seems every time you get a decent improvement in the graphics on a computer the text sizes usually become so tiny as to be unreadable --I suppose it's difficult for a bank of developers all to work with 60 inch screens !!!!! but surely some of them must be able to test stuff out on decent bits of kit.

A:Start Menu size text too small on 14 inch laptop 1920 X 1080p

Sometimes I think I'm going blind here! Need to pull out a magnifying glass for text smaller then a driving test! How's it been by the way?

The DPI setting can be a help or hinderance at times with this as well as changing the style of text. The item of interest for you however is going into the Settings>System, Display, etc. there and opening up the Advanced display options where you then scroll down on the left side there to the "Advanced sizing of text and other items. Once you click on that the screen in the Control Panel then appears as seen in the snipping here.

You will note that was done on the fly as well as pointing out the one item of interest being the "menus" option which is likely the one thing that is able to make this specific type of change for you. That's unless you decide to change from the default Start menu that comes with 10 to something like Stardock's Start10 option? I just added that onto a new 17" 10 laptop lately when the old 7 laptop upgraded to 10 flopped out for no reason leaving only a black screen to look at. Backlit that is and hopefully not the integraded graphics chip on the board. If able to be fixed that can be passed along from grandmother to one of the grandsons since they keep borrowing and toying with the parent(s)'s laptops and ... "another mess Henry! better get.. to look at it again!"

A:How do I upgrade my notebook to an SSD

 For some people, upgrading a notebook to an SSD may be like diving into the deep end of a swimming pool. An SSD upgrade may involve extensive disassembly of your notebook, depending on the model. Some models have hard disks that are easier to access than others. There is the small, but important detail involving accepting the risk of damaging your notebook and violating the warranty. You will need to decide whether you want to migrate your OS to the new SSD or perform a clean installation of Windows. If you have already upgraded the notebook?s OS to Windows 10, your notebook will have a digital entitlement on the Windows licensing servers. That is Microsoft?s new licensing model which makes activation of the OS a seamless process. In the part of the installation where you see a box to put the twenty-five-character license activation key, there is a link below it that says, I don?t have a key.     That is what you should click on to continue the installation. The type of SSD that will be compatible with your notebook depends on a few things. The first is how recently your notebook came to market. The second is whether your notebook is an entry level or a high-end model with advanced features. The third is dependent on the interfaces present on your notebook?s system board. Your notebook may have only SATA ports or it may also have an M.2 or mini PCIe slot.  Older notebo...

A:Notebook CPU upgrade

I strongly suggest you forget about the idea. The difference isn't worth the trouble of the conversion, and it's frequently very difficult to swap processors in laptops. In general, if you gain less than a 1.5:1 improvement in processor speed, you'll notice very little difference in visual performance.

I have a friend with a toughbook laptop and we have taken it apart to the core to find that the cpu is a standard 2.8v socket 7 p166mmx pentium cpu. we cannot find jumpers anywhere and wonder if there is any way to upgrade this chip to a 2.8v p233mmx or to one of these low volt socket 7 p266mmx cpus.

We would like to put in a k6-2 but see no way of configuring the chip. These units came stock with 100-166mhz pentium laptop and standard cpus so there must have been a way of "jumpering" them to run each chip

Any thoughts?

Thanx
 

A:Panasonic CF-25 notebook cpu upgrade

Hmm, we just installed a pentium MMX 200mhz cpu and it works great but only at 166mhz like the old cpu.

There must be a way of reconfiguring the board with different multipliers as the laptop came with anything from a p100 to a p150. but the bios has no options for this and the motherboard itself does not have jumpers to change.

Any ideas?

picked up this USB/SATA wire with the intent to hook it up to a Hard Drive I removed from a lap top and transfer the files to a new Hard Drive I installed in the lap top. I'm sure you know where this is heading, I had no clue what I was doing. I bought the new Hard Drive at Best Buy along with the Upgrade wire brought them home and quickly removed the hard drive and replaced it with the new one. I then quickly opened the Upgrade Kit (bad idea). Anyway this is the problem, I returned the new hard drive and I was thinking they informed that the new hard drive had no operating system so it would not work unless I bought the software. Also, I was going to return the Upgrade kit, but they would not take it back because they said I may have already installed the software that came with the kit. I now have this Upgrade kit that I spent $40.00 for and not  quite sure what to do with it.
This leads to my question, is there any way I can hook this wire up to the old hard drive that will not Boot and send it to my computer?
Then again there may be something in the hard drive that may compromise my hard drive. Do I have any use for this Upgrade kit.
Sorry for the long drawn out post and many questions.

Method 1: Use a usb to sata cable and a cloning program for the simplest way to migrate your OS to an SSD. (see the image below)Method 2: Remove the hard disk from the notebook. Put it and the target SSD in a desktop PC in spare available SATA ports.    Cloning programs like Samsung's Magician, Paragon's Migrate OS to SSD 4.0, and Apricot's EZ Gig IV will allow you to shrink the amount of data on the legacy hard disk to fit on the SSD. The migration is normally seamless and simple and usually finished in about thirty minutes or less. The cloning software will prep the hard drive on its own with scripted powershell commands. Connect the SSD to the sata connector and the USB end to a USB port on your notebook. Invoke the cloning program you have chosen to use.  When the cloning procedure is complete, all that you will need to do is replace the original legacy disk with the SSD. Enter the notebook's BIOS and set the SSD disk to the top of the boot list. Save the change, boot to your SSD and enjoy the performance boost. You won't believe that it is the same notebook. With some notebooks, in order to allow the SSD to boot you will have to use the UEFI boot order and move the OS Boot manager to the top of the list.   Method 3: A clean install of a Windows OS. Windows XP, Vista, 7 , 8 & 8.1 to the new SSD. This can be difficult if the OS is Windows 8 or 8.1. Newer notebooks have the license activation key in the BIOS as a SL... Read more

I hear no booting up noises, and nothing comes on the screen. when I put a cd in the drive, I hear it spin and read, but that is it. I tried using a startup disk, and tried replacing a small battery on the inside that I think is for BIOS. is it a motherboard problem, or processor, or other?

I've been thinking about upgrading my ASUS X54C notebook by adding a SSD, and possibly more RAM.

Before I open this thing up to take a closer look, is anyone familiar with this notebook to be able to say it does or doesn't have sufficient space for both the existing 2.5" HDD, and a SSD? I guess the only real way to tell is by opening it up?

I can't seem to find an internal diagram that might give me a clue, but these are the specifications if it helps.

Currently, I have 4GB RAM, and considering upgrading to 8GB.

A:M.2 SSD upgrade for HP Notebook 15-ay013nr

This model can have either a hard drive or an M.2 mSSD but not both. There is a Solid State Drive board that adapts the mSSD to the same space in the laptop as a hard drive or full sized SSD. Since a SATA hard drive and the M.2 plug into the same connector I would say that you have to use a SATA M.2 mSSD and not a PCI-e version as you ask about. This is a brand new model with a Skylake processor so not easy to find information but here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 56. So if you want the mSSD and you order the laptop with either a hard drive or 2.5 inch SSD you will also somehow have to locate the SSD board. I would just install a 2.5 inch SSD since I think the board will be hard to locate.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I've been trying to upgrade a 60gb hard drive of a Fujitsu Lifebook S6231 to a 250gb hard drive.

I purchase the Apricorn Universal USB upgrade kit, but when I clone the disk and install it, all I get is a blinking cursor. I called up Apricorn and they mentioned that maybe the BIOS does not support larger hard drives. There are no later bios firmware to upgrade to. Also the CSR told me to try a "AS IS" clone which keeps the partition the same size on the new drive and then try using Partition Magic to expand it. I tried that and I still get a blinking cursor

I looked on the Apricorn website and they sell hard drives for my Lifebook, but the largest they sell is 120gb. So I figure maybe the largest HD the bios will support is 120gb and I go to Fry's and get one. I clone the disk and I still get a blinking cursor.

Any suggestions?

When it checked for win2000 compatibility with loaded software (I was just from the factory), it identified that 2000 was not compatible with any of the Windows Works programs that were pre-loaded. (that was fine as I have office xp I'm going to use). When I boot up the computer, I get an error message box saying:
WKSCal.exe -unable to locate DLL
The dynamic link library MSVCP60.DLL could not be found in specified path (.....yada-yada)
Question 1- how can I get that error message to go away for good since I don't need to ever use that file.

Question 2- win2000 shrank the screen display of the windows desktop, it doesn't fill the whole screen. It is shrunk on all 4 sides aproximately 20%. I have adjusted the screen resolution in the control panel/display/settings to the more setting and it does not help. The other parts of the screen are black and acts like the monitor is small.

I appreciate anyone's help on this. Thanks.

for the works calendar problem either go to add remove programs and uninstall it or you could try downloading this utility for 2k, acts like msconfig in win98. Should allow you to uncheck the line calling the works file

I have an HP Pavilion xf125 notebook, and would like to upgrade the memory. It has 384mb now. I don't know how much memory it will hold, or if it's even upgradable anymore since it's so old (2002 I think). The reason I want to upgrade is because it crashes pretty easy. I was thinking more memory would help solve this problem. Any advice would help... but no need to suggest I buy a new computer because I really don't use it all that much to justify the cost of a new one.

I also need a new battery for it, but don't really want to spend a lot... so looking for an inexpensive one. Not sure it's possible to find such a thing anymore. Yes, I have looked on HP's website and they don't have either memory or batteries for it.

Thanks for any helpful advice you can offer.

When I install Windows 7 the instructions say that I will lose my installed programs. If I use the backup image to re-install the programmes, the backup image CD reinstalls Windows Vista. How can I get around this???

The installed programmes that came with my Acer notebook are copied onto the Acer backup image DVD.

Thank you for your help in advance

If you choose the "upgrade", it should carry forward all your programs, and personal data. Only if you choose "Custom" will you lose your programs.

Is it possible to upgrade the 940m GPU on the HP ENVY 17 s013ca to a more powerful option such as the gtx 960? I understand that its "complicated' for laptops but any answer given would be greatly appreciated.

A:Upgrade GPU on HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca?

Hi, Firstly GTX 980 won't fit and won't work on your computer. Your machiine already has laptop version. And the bad news is for nearly all consumers laptops such as Envy, Pavilion .... you can't upgrade video card. You need to buy work station class machines. Regards.
