Answers :

Just looked at the details that are stored on fixya, I see the laptop would have a SATA connector, so the new one is IDE? you will have to get a SATA drive and it should fit. well compair the original to the new one, the one with flat connectors fits?
See if you are using an IDE or SATA drive as the interfaces are different, also check the old drive to see if it is in a "Chassis" that should be transfered to the new drive
