  1. Hi, i have this old lappy from a few years ago. It is running XP with 96mb or ram and it has a pentium II processor at 233mhz. It came with a 4gb hard drive but i was thiking about upgrading the hd to a 15gb disk. Could anybody tell me it this bios will detect it without trouble?

    thanks in advance.

    Hi everyone, thanks for the info mscrx...After checking some stuff there and viewing the bios setup i managed to change the disk access type on it; it was in D.O.S. mode and changed it to "Other". Then after placing the 15gb drive on the lappy everything went ok. xp recognized the 15gb without trouble and now i got the old lappy with a little more space :).
