1) I would buy a cheap 2.5 inch hard disk enclosure (newegg.com has a lot of cheap ones) and put your new laptop drive in there.
2) Download Acronis Trueimage (do a google search). This enables you to backup the old contents of the drive to your hard disc enclosure (very easy to use - the trial version has a 2 week limitation but no functionality limitation)
3) Swap out the old drive and put in the new one
Should work. That's what I did and it was pretty painless
I wish to upgarde the hard drive of my Compaq Presario notebook. Currently, it is equipped with 40GB and I wish to upgarde it to 80GB.
I tried searching many websites but could not find any information on hard disk upgarde for this model. Any help would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
