Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv8315NR Notebook ?

I Asked yesterday about upgrading my hard drive in my HP pavilion dv8315nr. The response follows: Your Hp DV8000 will take any 2.5" EIDE interface hard drive of any size. I alsways tell people to put their money into both size and speed. 4200 rpm hard drives are yesterdays tech and are being phased out. Your system will accept up to a 500 GB hard drive, and have an operating speed of 7200 rpms. The trick to installing a new hard drive in OEM devices like HP, is to use the "initializing" installa


Answers :

In my opinion you go ahead and get a large ..at least 250 one ...and the actual speed I don't thing it matter either ...you can actually try to find a 4200 rpm so you will be sure that you do not have a rotation speed incompatibility ...
I think the either don't understand what you are trying to do ...or ...they just gave an example ...or its a matter of contractual deals between companies and they do not recomend anything but their partners products......anyway ..if by chance and fatality will not work ..you can use it to make an external on e...just by getting a adapter case from ebay ...they are about 20 $ and from usb it will work no matter what ...
in what regards the sata or ide it should be just like the other one ...if the other its Sata as I suspect ...this new one should be the same in order to be sure that it will fix...I believe that most new lap[tops don't use ide at all ...so ..take a look on start when is identifying the devices ..and you should see what kind of a bus it have ...or take a look into bios ...
