Need advise re: Dell Laptop hard drive

by tinker37 / August 22, 2006 4:34 PM PDT

Hi Computer Savvy Techs:
I just bought a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop with an internal hard drive of 60GB 5400rpm, and found out after ordering it, that I will need 7200rpm in order to run ACT software to manage my client data files.

Dell resolution desk came up with using an external hard drive with a 120GB 7200rpm that will connect to my USB port.

Is this a viable solution if mobility is not a major concern?

Please HELP with your suggestions.
Thanks for your valued input!!!
Not so computer savvy lady.

I've yet to find software that would not work on such a drive. Yes, in days gone by we had video capture issues but thankfully that's a thing from years ago.

Unrelated to the topic but still on my mind.

Throughout this forum there are threads that have been completed, issues solved and problems fixed. Is there some possible way to make that a visible notification?

I'm guessing no?

Udayan.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
