I have this beautiful & old laptop and would like to replace hard drive. I've purchased samsung 120GB hard drive and exchange hard drives. When I turn on computer my laptop doesn't recognize hard drive at all. It doesn't find nothing under master drive. What am I doing wrong, and is it possible to make this upgrade?

Thanks

the upgrade 'should' be possible, according to the spec sheet this laptop is expandable up to 120 GB (an indication that the the controller does have 48-bit LBA support).

can post the model of the hard disk drive you bought?
