Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2840se PC Notebook ?

I need a replacement hard drive for a Pavilion DV2840SE


Answers :

Looks like the original Hard Drive from HP in this model was a 250gb SATA hard drive 5400 RPM. I would suggest a 250gb 7200 RPM hard disk drive. Its a bit faster hard drive and will work just fine. you can also go with a larger drive if you have the need for it. I would suggest checking you local computer store. Or goto Newegg.com and get you a drive from them.
Buy a 250 GB as that is the original. But do you have the recovery DVDs for it as you will have to install the OS and other progs on it. Unless you plan to do it online.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
