thx for you're reply. i know it is a "waste of cash" but it is a customer that wants me to upgrade the laptop and he has a budget allowed for this. For 30$ i think it is worth it especially that this laptop is slow with windows xp. the laptop already has 512mb of memory wich i think is the maximum allowed so the only think remaining to skeeze a little more performance is the cpu and hdd.
so you think this chipset allows only 37gb maximum so maybe i could at least put a 40gb hdd then. How can i know the maximum size the chipset will support?
