Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have the following hard drive HITACHI HTS541040G9SA00 40G sata 5400rpm which is defunct and I want to replace it with a compatible upgrade of 80G? The hard drive is from a Toshiba Equim M70-337 Please can you advise


Answers :

It's just a 2.5 SATA drive so any drive will more than likely do.....don't lock yourselft ito 80GB when there are 320, 500, etc out there. What is most important is the largest drive your system BIOS will recognize....which most ROMs can be flashed for compatability with newer larger drives.
\015\012
\015\012Check with your Laptop Manufacturer Support Site to see the largest drive supported by your BIOS and if there are any updates.
\015\012
\015\012If you have your hear set on the 80GB Hitachi take a look at the Spec sheet (more like a book)from Hitachi at the link below which provides specs on the 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100GB drives: http://www.hitachigst.com/tech/techlib.nsf/techdocs/28DCCB17E0EEC5A086256F4E006E2F5B/$file/5K100_SATA_sp1.2.pdf

\015\012Replacing a hard drive in a Laptop is probably easier than replacing a light bulb, IMO.
