HDD slave dv7

I have a laptop dv7-6b31ed, for which I would like to install a second (slave) drive. I need a slave HARD drive cable for the connection at the Mo. Unfortunately, I am not able to know which cable I need exactly. I found two reference numbers. One of them is probably the right one: 610958-001 or 643638-001. Someone at - it an idea which we need?

  • Adding second hdd to dv7-7000 will break the warranty?

    I want to add ssd as a second hdd to my dv7-7000 and I'm curious to know if this way I have the warranty

    Hi, congratulations on your purchase! If you have an option to add a secondary HARD drive, you will be certainly able to do that (not sure SSD/non-SSD), however, which certainly does not cancel the warranty.

    Just make sure you get the right part.

  • HARD drive installation problems

    I have an old Dimension 4600 that recently failed to initialize.  (BSOD appears just after the start screen)  The IDE Diagnostics from Dell (result: failure) indicated that the drive was dead, which was not unexpected - it was the hard original supplied with the system that I've had for 3 years, and I had also been do the BSOD in too many occasions in recent weeks.  The failed drive was the boot drive (master) - the system also has a second IDE HDD (slave) who did pass the diagnostic test.

    I installed a new hard drive and proceeded with the installation of Windows XP.  Installation stops during formatting, with an error message indicating that the installation could not continue and that the HARD drive may be bad.  I have run the Dell Diagnostic and failure of the drive.

    I then pasted the new drive in an other Dimension 4600 (also XP) as the slave drive and it meets the diagnostic test.

    Can anyone shed light on what may be the problem with system #1?

    Thank you all...


  • HP Pavilion dv7 second HDD installation problem

    Hello

    I recently bought an internal WD7500BPVX 750 GB SATA HDD compatible with my HP Pavilion dv7 - 2030eV to be used as a second hard drive, since I already have a 250 GB HARD drive on the laptop. I also bought a SATA cable which I think is compatible and a caddy for the disc. When I connected the SATA cable and pressed the Start button the laptop powered upwards for about a second and then stop.  I disconnected the SATA cable and left only 250GB driver connected. When I turned on again your laptop booted normally. Once I tried to connect the new HARD drive again the same thing happened. Any ideas what might be happening? I checked two times for parts compatibility before you buy, but I can't rule out it as a cause.

    Thank you all in advance for your help.

    This series does not start with two different hard disks. If you want a second hard drive, you need the same 250 GB drive as the original to make it work.

Secondly, I want to put 1/2/3 Tb hard drive the second vacuum for hard drive (I have cable already) what is the maximum capacity of the hard drive for the 2nd Bay, what SATA is supported and what size hard disk must be adapted it. And the last question, how do I move my win7 to a different drive correctly? (I'll be so happy if you could provide links to some HDD/SDD you will recommend me to install) Thank you very much. And salvation of the Russia!

    Hi babooon:

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Ee maximum size of HDD supported by your system is determined by the bios. Most systems will be discs recognized in the order of 1-8 terabyte.

    Any hard drive brand meets the specifications required for the model you is acceptable.

    Disk portable 5400rps.

    You can consider the drive cloning.

    I send you a link to a document on a third party site on the backup of your entire drive.  click here.

    As I am in North America, I can't not provided suggested brands of hard drive to buy.

    I hope this helps.

    I have laptop HP DV7. recently my hard drive creates a few (ratllle nosie) nosie and I rebooted my system again... I didn't ERROR no bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key...

    I got tosibha MK6461GSYN HARD drive. I would like to replace with SDDS and reinstall the OS from another software...

    Hello

    There are two parts: hardware and software. For hardware, it will take 5 to 10 minutes, but for the software that can take several hours, days or even weeks. To shorten the task of software, my suggesion: order the recovery disks on HP and put your machine into factory settings. You can continue from there.

  • DV7 does not start after HDD 1 Tb in 500 MB replacement

    I had to replace the 1 TB HDD, running windows 7.

    After replacement, for a 500 MB HARD drive, I tried to run the discs of HP recovery (made on the date of purchase).

    The procedure was normal until the end, but when the PC restart to complete the installation of Windows, a

    Message "No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key" appeared.

    Now I can start only on DVD, and I have access to the command prompt, help.

    I have some quick concepts.

    Please, I need help.

    new HARD drive - ST500LM012 SAMSUNG HN-500MBB

    Hello

    It is a problem of coomon with recovery disks - will not work on a smaller hard drive capacity as the original drive, however, there is another option.

    Before you try the following, make sure that you can always read the character product activation key 25 on your label Windows COA (5 blocks of 5 alphanumeric games).

    An example of a COA label can be seen here.

    You can create a Windows 7 installation disc yourself using another PC - just download the good Disk Image ( this must be the same version that originally came with your laptop - it is listed as Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit ) from the link below and use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly on a blank DVD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write an ISO on a disc is here.  These Images are clean and a very respected source (Digital River).

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit - SP1.

    Use the disk to perform the installation, enter the activation key of Windows on the label of the COA at the request and once the installation is complete, use ' 'phone Method' described in detail in the link below to activate the operating system -this made method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who want to just have a new installation of Windows 7 without additional software load normally comes with OEM installations.

  • ENVY of HP dv7 - 7398ca PC Notebook: how much memory (NO RAM) my laptop stand (also, slave drive issues)

    Is there a limit to the size of a SSD or HARD disk, I put in my laptop?

    I currently have a 1 TB SSD, and that's all. He could handle 2 TB? 4 TB? 6 TO?

    There is an empty slot internal hard drive and I'm looking to add a slave drive.

    Y at - it much, if any, of the difference between using a SSD or HARD drive for the slave drive?

    I was under the impression that he was not a limit to the size of a HDD/SSD, you can put in until a year ago, I put a 3 TB HARD drive in a desktop environment and he acknowledged only 2 TB of it.

    Finally, off topic, if someone could indicate what anything else that could / should be upgraded on this laptop, I'd appreciate it.

    If none of these questions are a little silly, feel free to have a little laugh at em.

    Thank you in advance.

    Not stupid at all. Portable hard drives up to 2 TB, not because of any problem with the hardware of the laptop, just hard drive manufacturers do not have more data on a 2.5-inch disk capacity yet. You can install a 2 TB or 2 of them on your laptop. I wouldn't use an SSD as secondary drive 'slave' because you can't start it and the speed is a little lost. Your optimal configuration is the most big budget SSD drive can support in the main Bay, then a mechanical drive of 2 TB in the secondary Bay. You will need a cart and a cable for the secondary Bay and you can buy it here:

    http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?Main_Page=product_info&cPath=2_5&products_id=498

    If you look at the bottom of the newmodeus.com page, you will see the installation instructions.

    This 2 to/3 TB problem you had on the desktop has been easily solved. The drive must be set up the file system more modern TPG rather than the old system MBR schoool. You will not have this problem with a 2 TB laptop drive, but TPG system is much better than Windows 8 and higher, anyway.

    After the back if you need assistance software migration/relocation.

  • HP Pavilion dv7 - 6163cl Win7 Home Premium HDD half of capacity

    Hello, just got my HP Pavilion dv7 - 6163cl Entertainment Notebook PC and it works like a charm, but I had this issue when I was checking the system, it displays only 1 HDD with 495 GB (C when he was supposed to be 1 TB (2 x 500 GB accordly to the web page where I got it) also when I run the HP Support Assistant it shows 2 lines on the section or hard drives) :

    Hard drives

    Hitachi HTS547550A9E384 (465,76 GB)

    Hitachi HTS547550A9E384 (465,76 GB)

    So... does really have 2 HARD drive? If this is the case, then how can I use 2nd HARD drive, or to be visible in the my computer window?

    Also... I tried to play games and everything worked fine, but I installed the game "Amnesia: The Dark Descent ' and it stops instantly, I read on the web and they talk about updated drivers or uninstall... Could someone tell me what to do to get this game to work? Thanks in advance.

    Go to the computer in the start menu and right-click on it and select 'manage '... Select disk management and see if you see 2 hard drives here. You may need to assign a drive (aka "mount") letter the second drive by right-clicking and selecting "assign drive letter" in order to access it through Windows Explorer. Frankly, HP should have done that at the factory, but if the drive is present and active, you should still be able to do it yourself. It will look something like this you should have a disk of the same size 0 and a disc 1. Your Windows drive will be more sections (partitions) and the second or the storage disk is probably just a large partition:

  • DV7-3085DX 2nd HDD Bay

    I have a look at my DV7-3085DX and see that there is a second HDD Bay but no connection to connect a 2nd internal hard drive.

    Is it possible to add connectors & turn on the 2nd hard drive Bay? If so how can it be done?

    Also, I noticed that connections exist inside for a tv tuner, is it possible to use this connection?

    Any help or answers greatly appreciated.

    At least the drive and theoretically Yes Yes on the tv tuner even though it is expensive. You need the module and a special cable. I can't find the part on the internet or on this site, but you could maybe call HP or even look on ebay. Here is the part that you need to add a second drive. It's the caddy and a connection cable.

  • Master IDE HDD to slave in Dimension 5100 DVD burner

    Hello

    I just added a disk IDE (PATA) (jumper to master) to the same controller that my existing DVD burner, now set as slave. the two IDE channels is enabled in the BIOS and the hard drive passed Diagnostics.  But the new IDE HDD is not recognized by Windows, although it appears like a hard drive under Device Manager.

    The recommendation of the forum seems to favor using an external HARD drive enclosure, but I'm not willing to do unless it's the only way to make it work.

    What else is required to complete the configuration?  I am running XP Professional.
