Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv8315NR Notebook ?

I need to upgrade my hard drive on my HP dv8315nr laptop. How can I find out what I have already(brand), what is compatible, and how to do it?


Answers :

You should have an HP 100GB ATA 6 (ATA/100) 2-1/2" drive. To determine what hard drive you have, left click on "My Computer", the right click on "Local Disk (C:)" and properties. Lastly, click on "Hardware" tab. The very top entry should be your hard drive. Alternatively, you can loosen the 3 screws holding down the hard drive on the bottom of your laptop, then slide the hard drive out to look at the hard drive physically.

All ATA 6 (ATA/100) 2-1/2" drives will work on your laptop. Here is a list of compatible drives carried by Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010150380%201035907889&name=ATA-6
