Can't find specs for an old Japanese market Fujitsu (FMV Biblo LOOX T70)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Trying to find some detailed specifications, but perhaps my internet detective skills aren't working properly today.

The notebook in question is the Fujitsu FMV Biblo LOOX T70.

I believe it was a Japanese market item, I purchased two of them back in 2004 from Dynamism (one for me, one for a friend). Mine was stolen after only a few months (along with many other prized possessions) in an apartment break-in. However, my friend gave me hers this year as she didn't need it anymore and she remembered how upset I was after mine was stolen. Now I want to turn it into an extra transportable music and video device, but need to upgrade some hardware first.

I am working in China right now, and the notebook is back in the states, so I can't open it up until I get home in a few months to discover the answers to my questions personally. Hoping some of your knowledge of the market at the time, or more advanced internet detective skills, can point me to the information I need.

1) Did the FMV Biblo LOOX T70 have a SATA hard drive connection or IDE? (hopefully SATA as I already purchased another HDD)

2) Will 2 x 1GB DDR PC2700 sticks be accepted by the hardware?

Ancillary question: What was the sound device on this board? Is it any good? Or will a portable DAC probably be required to get decent sound? (will already be using a portable headphone amp)

Found this: http://pr.fujitsu.com/jp/news/2004/04/20-1.html
...but not seeing the information I need (maybe I am blind).

Have you tried AIDA64?
Quote:
AIDA64 compiles and displays a wide range of details for your computer hardware and software. To find out what is inside a PC, what kind of hardware you are dealing with, you just need to glance at the Summary page. If you need more details for a particular hardware component, you are always just a few clicks away from a specific hardware information page. The Summary page also offers you links to hardware manufacturers websites, and points to driver update and BIOS download facilities.

Several AIDA64 pages are not just there to display static information. Dynamic pages show realtime clock readings and sensor measurements to help you while overclocking or tuning your system, or when you are trying to identify a faulty hardware component.

AIDA64 also contains over 40 pages about installed software, drivers, services, and other operating system details. With its streamlined detection engine it can gather essential data from security software like virus database date, firewall state, and a list of installed Windows Updates and hotfixes.

The AIDA64 detection engine is a result of more than a decade of research and development, with an ever growing device database that currently holds information on more than 140,000 devices. AIDA64 can give you detailed information about all aspects of Windows based desktop, mobile and server computers.

Never played with AIDA64, and it looks interesting, so thanks for sharing. Will definitely want to try that out on some of my systems.

The problem with this situation is that I am on the opposite side of the planet from the machine I want to upgrade, so can't get my hands on it for some time to find out what's inside.

Thanks amang,

Seems to be a slightly different generation of the series, but probably running the same basic components, so it has more or less answered my questions, thanks for the link. Unfortunately, one of the answers isn't the one I was hoping for.

1) specs say Ultra ATA HDD, so it is indeed IDE drive interface, not SATA like I had hoped.

So now I have a new mission. Finding if there is any way to get a SATA hard drive running inside a little laptop with IDE connections.

Probably won't be any adapters that can fit inside the HDD bay, but perhaps someone makes a HDD caddy for 9.5mm disk drive bays that can accept SATA drives and has an IDE connection to the computer.

That didn't take long: http://www.amazon.com/Micro-SATA-Cables-Optical-Adapter/dp/B005L91ZL8

Should work, right?

Not ideal because I lose yet another disc drive, but at least then I don't need to free up any space for an OS partition on the completely full 750GB SATA drive that will be going inside this old Fujitsu.

I'd try to go for a low capacity SSD and use the adapter with that. I can't imagine you'd need THAT much space for such an old laptop. o.O 120GB should be enough for file keeping. tongue.gif

The space is already used.

Currently my main laptop is a VAIO Z, with 120GB SSD main drive for OS, and the 750GB drive in the disc bay caddy. The 750GB has been completely full with music and movies for a while. Was hoping to wait for 1.5TB (9.5mm, 2.5") drives to come out before upgrading, but it is looking like that might be a while longer, and I am missing many new music releases because I have no space for them. Ordered a 1TB drive that I will put in the Z (and copy all of the data on the 750GB, giving me about 233GB of additional space).

The 750GB drive would have not get any use otherwise, I already have many 1TB externals, and my desktop storage is adequate for now. The only use I could possibly have for the little Fujitsu (aside from nostalgia) is as an additional media player. Also have some extra RAM sticks from an old laptop (the one that replaced the stolen Fujtisu at the time).

Seems that picking up that SATA-IDE caddy is a cheap way to get an extra device I might actually use without needing to make any major investment (and avoiding retiring some older investments).
