i have a dell latitude d600 and i want to upgrade the ram and harddrive so i went to dell.com.au they dont have the laptop listed i ran a crucial .com scan and it ses i have pc2700 how can i upgrade
or is it not worth it
im in australia so anyone have some solutions for me
The best way to upgrade the hard drive is to use a program that will ghost an image of the 1 drive to another hard drive (or CD). I prefer ghost 9, but there are free ones out there. I generally ghost it to a drive that is in a USB enclosure. The 1 in the enclosure would be your new drive.
An image is an exact duplicate of the drive including all drivers. You would then "restore" the image.
You can also clone the old drive to the new drive. For what you want, this is prefered. Again there are many programs that allow you to do this.
I do not have time to get you links, but a google search would get you what you want. Or hang out and someone else will be along and suggest some.
