It looks like we are going to need to replace a hard drive within my friend's Compaq Presario (Model V5000) laptop. The current one which is defective or bad is an 80GB WD HDD. Seeing that this is an older laptop, what is the HDD upgrading potential of this laptop? In other words, what is the size in terms of GB the BIOS of the motherboard of this laptop will recognize or understand? I know with older desktops there is usually a cut off point in terms of how much space the BIOS recognizes or identifies.
If someone could get back with me regarding this question, it will be greatly appreciated. I will look forward to reviewing any shared input given to this concern.
