I'm looking to upgrade my Vostro 1000 with a SSD
Will any of these drives fit/work?
Dell Technical support tell me that this laptop will not support SSD, but they also said the maximum memory is 2GB which I know is incorrect as I have 4GB installed (2.72gb recognised on the Win 7 x86)
Thx in advance
Any SATA SSD that will fit, will work - but it's not worth the cost on a low-end system like this one.
I disagree. Depending on what you pay for the SSD it can be an excellent way to upgrade your laptop.
I have done both upgrades (RAM and SSD) on a Vostro 1000 and they turned what used to be an OK laptop into an excellent one. Neither one is difficult to complete.
Right on :) with the Vostro upgraded RAM and SSD. I too recently installed a SSD into my Vostro 1000 but seem to have problems updating the BIOS. Did you encounter any errors or issues with your install??? I seem to be getting a code 5 error when I start to flash and cannot proceed. It all started when my hard drive failed 2 weeks out of warranty. I installed win7 and tried to update the BIOS to solve the battery issue. I've conctacted DELL with no luck as they just refer me to their forum. I see the potential in this baby as I plan to do the RAM as well.
Do your bios upgrade with XP and then jump to WIN7. The bios update doesn't like Win7.
