Most Laptops have one HDD bay for a 2.5" SATA drive max size right now is 500GB. Ram will depend on the number of slots, normal is 2, form the specs 2GB is max.
so you can replace the 120GB HDD with a 500GB drive
and replace the 2 x 512MB Ram cards with 2 x 1GB Ram cards
Your Laptop does not have alot of Ram for Vista (1GB) it would run much faster with XP or Windows 7.
With luck you need only remove a few screws to get at the Ram and HDD.
few makers using IDE drives today, SATA have fewer pins and make a better conection, laptop use 2.5" drives 3.5" used mainly by desktops and go up to 1TB + in size.
Thanks for your support I much obliged thank you
