Maximum Capacity for HDD/SSD in HP Elitebook 8560w

Q: Maximum Capacity for HDD/SSD in HP Elitebook 8560w

Hi, I have had my Elitebook for almost 5 years now. It currently runs Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with 16 GB of RAM. I'm still running on the installed Hitachi 500 GB HDD, but it's getting a little slow for my taste and I'm worried it might fail at any time. I've been hoping to replace the 500 GB HDD with a 500 GB SSD from Samsung by cloning it, then wipe the old HDD completely, and THEN replace the optical bay with a new 2nd HDD of some unspecified capacity. My problem now: I have about 300 GB's worth of data (went to an engineering school). I spoke to an HP rep on a live chat who told me that the largest supported capacity for an SSD (that can only be in the primary slot) is 256 GB and the largest supported capacity for an HDD in the replacement bay is 500 GB. Rather than move and link my entire USER's folder to the 2nd HDD (which is possible but still confusing for me at this point), I'd like to get a second opinion from someone in the HP community. Is the capacity limitation a matter of drive height? BIOS limitation? Is it still possible to get a 500 GB SSD instead? I've seen in various forums that the user had a larger drive than suggested. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was thinking of upgrading the RAM in my Elitebook 8650w. I know the type of memory I need (DDR3 PC-10600 1333 Mhz) but I was wondering how many strips are build in already?I got the quad core version so my laptop has 4 slots, from which 2 are under the keyboard and I dont want to take the laptop apart. My laptop has 4 GB of RAM this moment. My question is, are there 2 strips of 2GB DDR3 RAM already installed or just 1 strip of 4 GB? Or is this something varying from factory to factory?

This afternoon I left my Elitebook open and running on the table and when I returned half an hour later the screen was black. I figured it had gone to sleep but when I moved my mouse nothing happened. I pushed the power button, still no response. Even after holding the power button for an extended period of time nothing happened, aside from the power led blinking for a couple of seconds. I've already tried removing the battery etc, but it didn't work. All help is appreciated.

Hello,i have problem with my EliteBook 8560w(With dual boot Windows 7 64bit and Linux Mint 17.3 if its important). When I plug it in AC charger it turns on by itself and after 2-3 sec. it shutsdown without warning. After shutting down the laptop can't be turned on using the power button. This occurs everytime I plug it in the charger. I get the same problem when I place the battery. I tryed the following: removing RAM, removing HDD, removing BIOS battery. Everytime the laptop turns on itself immediately when plugged in then shuts down after 2-3 sec. Its not heating problem either, because fan check is passing and I have recently replaced heatsink paste.When I plugged off the power button from the motherboard, the laptop stopped turning on when pluged in, but there is no way I can turn it on. Any suggestions what can be the cause of the problem and what solution can I try?Thank you in advance.

I have a laptop that will not charge the battery with the AC Adapter. I have tried different combinations between two chargers and two batteries and I always have the same results. The only time it will charge is when I connect it to my docking station which is a Hewlett-Packard (HP) NZ222AA - HSTNN-I10X 120W Advanced Docking Station. The charger I have is an HP PA-1151-09HA TPC-LA52 Adapter. The second charger is from another laptop. That is also the charger used in the docking station. That is an HP PA-1231-66HJ. I have tried both of these chargers in my EliteBook 8570p and they were both able to charge that laptop.  The laptop will run with the charger, without the battery. The only message the battery icon displays is "No battery detected". If I then attach the battery with the laptop still on, the message will change to "xx% and not charging. It will then run on battery power until it dies. At that point, it will turn off. If I followed the same scenario but unplugged it after attaching the battery, the message with change to "xx% and in use".  If I try to plug it in after that, it will continue to say "xx% and in use". It will not change back to "xx% and not charging". If the laptop was started with the battery in and then I plug it in, it will always say "xx% and in use".

Dear EliteBook users,Did anyone try - and succeed - adding some memory module to the primary memory slot underneath the keyboard of an EliteBook 8560w?I needed some extra memory and successfully added two modules to the slots below the bottom cover. But I needed more, and had to add it to the remaining slot just below the keybord. For that I had to remove the keyboard, but that turned out to be an impossible task.The user-guide ("Getting Started", p.45 and on) tells you how to do that, but that is definitely not correct. For instance, there is no "keyboard release cut-out", as indicated in p.46. Also the force you have to exert on the keyboard back-side is dangerouly hight (dangerous for the keyboard and for your fingers). Googling for that did not help. In fact, a bit surprisingly, I have found other two user-guides for the same model, all of them with different technics to remove the keyboard, and all of them inapropriate. To make things worse, HP support in the Netherlands said they could do nothing for me, except sending me the same manuals I already have. And there is absolutelly no available channel to complain with HP about that!I'd be grateful for any information on that.Regards.G.Oliveira.?

I'm hoping someone might be able to help me diagnose this problem with my 8560W:It randomly hard locks up - ie the mouse/keyboard input stop and music playback freezes - about 10 seconds later the machine turns right off.  I haven't noticed any pattern to when it does it - sometimes it'll go for a week with no problems, other times it'll freeze before the windows sign-in screen. I've tried a fresh windows install (but have also seen the lockups in safe mode) so I don't think it's a bad driver issue. There is nothing meaningful in event viewerI suspected it might be an SSD failing - so tried another and had the same issues. I've seen the lockups on battery, and with both the power adapters I have - also on AC with the battery removed.I've run the built-in efi extensive diagnosis a few times - all passing completely. I have cleaned out the heatsinks with compressed air - though they didn't look too bad.  Keeping an eye on CPU temperatures - it does lock up some times when the temperatures are relatively low. Something I've noticed (and I don't know if it's a red herring or not) is that the system fan tends to not spin as much as it used to - ie I don't notice hearing it.  I've tried to roll back my BIOS - but haven't been able to - in Windows it tells me I can't go back, and in 'bios' it tells me it can't find the signature. Any help at this point would be appreciated.  I'd hate to have to throw the system out - it is still a ve...

Hello.I own an elitebook 8560w since 2012.I had never ever used its battery,because actually i never needed to (I used it pretty much as a desktop). Yesterday,i bought a genuine hp-battery specific for my computer.And here is the problem that occured:While my computer is ON with the battery disconnected,when i connect the battery,the power switches from ac to battery like it should,but the battery is NOT charging. Moreover,i dont have the "plugged in,not charging" problem like most of other people in forum discussions,but right after the moment i insert the battery,the charger connected to my laptop is totally ignored!Like its not connected at all! As a result,if i disconnect the battery,the laptop power doesnt switch back to the charger,but shuts down ,as it doesnt "see" any power supply.Not only that,but even if it shuts down it will not start up,until i disconnect and re-connect the charger (maybe because it is still waiting to get power from battery which was disconnected and is not switching to the charger supply). Finally,i ran a battery test in hp connection manager and result was that battery is "OK". I have my laptop on dual boot (Windows-7-64 / Kali-linux ) and all these problems above apply to Kali as well,which leads me to the conclusion that it isnt a software problem. Also,i have to mention something important: After the original charger i had bought the laptop with,stopped working 3 years ago,i didnt buy the genuine,but a universal...

My hp elitebook 8560w workstation has suddenly stopped working. It does not power up from the power button anymore. After several attempts, I managed to power it up, yet in a very unusual way. In order to turn it on, I have to remove battery and unplug the charger, press the power button once, return the battery and press the Quick Web button. Only by doing so, the lapton turns on normally.   Couple of other things to notice as well. First, when the Laptop enters the energy-saving mode, it shuts down completely. Second, the Windows 7 welcome sound comes late (roughly 5-6 min. after boot-up) I know that these symptoms might be caused by different concurrent issues, but I would appreciate it, if you can help me out with this case.  Thank you in advance

You still have the whitelist. It is not present in computers having an Intel Core 4th gen and higher CPU, but yours is second gen so the whitelist is still a problem for you. People have been asking for "de-whitelisted" BIOS for these machines for years and it has never happened so I can't hold out any hope it ever will.  These two devices will work: Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11 3x3 a/g/n WiFi Adapter 572511-001Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205, 2x2 a/b/g/n WiFi Adapter 631954-001 The 6300 takes 3 antenna and the 6205 only two. Both are 2.4 and 5 ghz compatible devices and are pretty good wireless cards, just not 802.11ac.  https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-n-6300AGN-Wirless-THINKPAD-572511-001/dp/B01EDT6I2C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT... https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-631954-001-Intel-PCI-express-Wireless/dp/B00TI8CMX8/ref=sr_1_1?ie... The above are very strong wireless cards, particularly the 6300 with 3 antennae if your laptop has 3 antennae.

A:What is the maximum capacity of my RAM and my HDD?

Maximum RAM is 16 gigs. Maximum storage is not an issue. You can install any SATA hard drive or SSD you can buy, which is within the physical size limits.  Supports 6.35-cm (2.5-in) SATA hard drives in 9.5-mm (.37-in) and 7.0-mm (.28-in) thicknesses   The max capacity exceeds the hardware available to purchase.

It means 2-2gb sticks total.  1   2 gb stick in each slot.
 
It looks like you already have 1-2gb stick in there, so you would just have to replace the 1-1gb stick with a 2gb stick.

Hey,

At first, i had this problem when i cancelled a tune up by live onecare. The cpu usage went up to 100%. After tried everything logical and usual, i finally tried to reformat.

After 5-6 times reformatting, the results i get change a little bit. When i take a look at the task manager, under the performance tab, the cpu usage is at 50-70%. And as I used core duo processor, i could see both cpu usage history. Here comes the weird part, only the first processor is used to the maximum. Meaning, the 50-70% cpu usage is mainly from the first processor. The reading on the second one is nearly zero. How can is my computer becomes stupid enough to use only one cpu when there are two and i never even change any settings on the device manager?

I have to wait atleast 10 mins to open My Computer, just to have see the search torch searching for what i have in My Computer.. Whenever i click on anything about the internet connection, it`ll hang, even in the task manager. Seriously, this is a weird one. I tried to look for the problem on the net, cant find even one close one.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:maximum capacity of my laptop

Weird seems kinda unfeasible that their would be a limitation on how much capacity your hard drive can have. Have you tried contacting HP? I just read an atricale on a HP M8200n that switched betwen a 500gb and a 1.5 T. Seems it would be OK to me. Hopefully you'll get some HP members with a more definitive answers. Fabe

Hi, i wasn't sure where exactly to ask this Q, I hope I chose correctly.
I'm using Intel e5400 on MSI G41 TM-P33 (MS-7592) motherboard with 3g ddr2 RAM, I'm still using Windows xp 32-bit, and my Q is whether I can use 4g RAM on it, someone told with Windows xp 3g RAM is the maximum - is that true? also I would like to know if installing Windows 7 will make it any faster and with better performance overall, If I'll use Windows 7 i could use more RAM (I have only 1 more G of RAM).
Thanks

I have bought 2GB (2x 1gig sticks) of corsair XMS PC6400 800MHz ram. I have read that if you decide to have more then 2gig u have to drop the clock speed to 667MHz... my goal is 4gig but i dont want to lower the speed.

Is this true? Its the dominator series with a timing of 4-4-4-12

I know a bit about computers but building a pure gaming system is new to me...
 

A:Solved: Maximum Corsair capacity

I can't say i have heard of this, but the closest thing to this that i have came across is that this does happen when using an AMD processor, as before E6 stepping was introduced the CPU could not support 400/200mhz FSB and would bump it down to 333/166mhz; though this is obviously not an issue with CPU's with E6 stepping.

In a W520 any of them will fit. No problem with a 2TB drive either...

I want to install a new HDD with higher capacity but I can find no information about maximum capacity of replacement HDDs.

Does anyone know hwo to find that info or what the maximum capacity for TECRA S3-153 PTS30E-0TD03S would be?

A:Tecra S3-153 Maximum capacity of replacement HDD

Hi

Tecra S3-153 supports the SATA controller.
As far as I know the SATA controller is not limited so theoretically you should be able to use SATA 2.5? HDD sizes; 250GB and bigger?

Hi - New here. I have acquired a:

Toshiba Satellite Pro A120
Model No. PSAC1E-04H00VEN

It is minus its hard drive. I have a spare 160GB hard drive but when I try to install this using the recovery disc, the operation just sticks on the "Please wait..." message. I note the spec for the A120 says it supports 40 to 120GB drives. Is that strictly true and hence why I can't install this 160GB drive?

Thanks.

A:Satellite Pro A120 - Maximum HDD capacity?

Hi Lapitup,

Usually 160GB should be no problem because the notebook supports SATA interface and there is no capacity limits so you can install every HDD.

Interesting to know would be what HDD you have installed exactly and if you have tested in on another computer because the HDD itself could be problem and not the computer. If the HDD is malfunctioning the recovery disk content can?t be installed so you get an error message.

I have a query about a pc with a athlon II x2 240 processor running Win 7, occasionally a message pops up in the system tray saying one core of the processor is almost at maximum capacity, this can happen at any time.
Whenever I go into task manager to see what is using the processor everything appears to be fine.
Any of you guys any ideas as to what might be causing the problem.
 

A:One core running at maximum capacity

I have never seen any kind of message like this before. Could the computer be infected with a virus or spy-ware?

Hi everyone.

I want to know the maximum capacity of this laptop.

Scanning it on crucial webpage, the results of ram memory is 32 GB at max. But in Dell manual and some other webpages is 16 GB.
And I want to know if I can put a crucial m.2 SSD, 500 gb or 1TB...but I'm not pretty sure about that.

Thanks a lot.
