asked on

needing an Amazon online purchase link for a 2TB internal hard drive for an Acer Aspire V3- 731-4473 laptop

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          My hard drive on my Acer Aspire laptop is about full with only 82GB of 500GB free.  That said, I am needing an Amazon online link to a 2 Terabyte (2TB) internal hard drive for this laptop. Just in case this information is needed in locating a compatible internal 2TB hard drive, my laptop is an Acer Aspire V3-  731-4473 laptop.

           If any additional information is needed, please feel free to let me know and it will be supplied.  

           Thanks in advance for any feedback given to this question.

Hi Joe and Andy,

      Thank you for your suggestions.  With respect to the large size of the internal drive, will I need to do anything special to get the laptop to fully recognize the 2TB storage capacity?  Several years ago I remember having the BIOS flashed or updated on a desktop receiving a much larger drive.  Hopefully, this will not be required in this situation with my laptop.

You may need a BIOS update to go past 2.2TB but it's very unlikely there will be a problem as the one you want is less than that.
Hi George,

You're very welcome.

I'm nearly certain that the answer is NO, but I suppose it's safer to say...I doubt it very much. :) Regards, Joe
