HP Pavilion dv6-6140us w/Hitachi 640 GB SATA / 300 5400 RPM 8 MB 2.5 "HDD

I have the possibility to replace the hard drive on my laptop dv6-6140, under Windows7 Home Premium 64-bit, as I'm smart errors, 301, 303 & 305. I have a chance to buy a Hitachi Travelstar 5 K 750 HTS547575A9E384 - disk hard - 750 GB - SATA-300 for the same price for a replacement of 640GO. My Question is; the picture I did of the 640 GB HDD will be able to load the new 750 GB drive or should I stay on the same size drive, on which the image was made?

Thank you


You should be fine with the HARD drive that you mention - as a general rule, the disks of the same capacity or more will be Ok.

You only usually managed in the problem when you use HP Recovery Meda on disks with a capacity smaller than the original.

Kind regards

  • Pavilion dv6-6140us: Hard Drive/replacement warranty?

    I get an error Smart 'Failure Immanent' Drive, back-up immediately... and of course its been telling me this for almost 2 years now. My Question is, ' my hard drive that are covered by the manufacturer's warranty or the warranty HP? My laptop justifies more HP, but the manufacturer has a 5 year warranty on its internal hard drives and my hard drive is not yet 5 years old. The HHD I refer to has moved into my laptop at the time I bought it. Anything else you need to know? Thank you.


    Only the car manufacturer can tell you whether or not your drive is covered by their warranty.

    You will need to contact them directly as HP has no role to play in this.

  • Pavilion windows laptop dv6-6140us 7 64 randomly "go to sleep".

    Hello, I have a 1.5 year, Pavilion dv6-6140us laptop with windows 7 64 which pretty well since I bought had a problem randomly 'fall asleep' computer: the display dims, I move the mouse to wake up the laptop, to reconnect and everything is as it was as if the laptop just went to sleep, but then he does it again and again and again (maybe not every 5-10 seconds) to the point where I can't do anything.  I worked with hp support and they had me restore factor settings - then they had send me the where they replaced the motherboard.  It was fine for a while and then started to happen again so just before my warranty expired I contacted hp support again and this time they had me update my display driver.  It seemed to work and it was fixed for a while, but he started again and reinstalling the driver is no longer made... but disable the display device only.  Once disabled, the issue does not appear to occur at all, but I can't use all the applications I need to.  If anyone has any ideas as to why this may be the case it would be greatly appreciated.  other this question, I like really the laptop, but this thing was very frustrating.  Thank you once again.

    I just wanted to post this in case everyone knew this issue as well:

    Since I posted this, I have re-installed my display with 12-10_mobility_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql_net4 adapter, but this time instead of using the parameters recommended, I choose custom install and chose the minimum of things to install... and so far I have not had the problem.

  • HP Pavilion DV6-6165tx upgrade advice needed

    Hi, I bought a HP Pavilion Dv6-6165tx 2 years ago. The warranty has expired and I need to upgrade my laptop to keep up with the generations Game.I have following questions: -.

    1. My current RAM's single chip 4 GB DDR3 at 1333 MHz. What RAM chip I could buy for use with this one on another site. I have shorlisted of it

      Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9: http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vengeance-ddr3-4-gb-1-x-gb-pc-ram-cmz4gx3m1a1600c9/p/itmd2rypbx4eeha...
    2. 1333 Mhz being low enough to me, I can replace on board RAM with a 1600 Mhz, one? I selected this one: -.

    3. Can I put an integrated graphics card? Currently its Radeon HD 6770 M 2 GB of DDR5 memory. If so, could you suggest a good upgrade? Thank you very much for the help!

      Kind regards

    Indeed, I am of the India.

    First of all, I would recommend what I felt the better for OUR laptops. Mine is a DV6 6121tx with the config following-Core i7 2630QM at 2.00 GHz with TB up to 2.90 GHz

    12 GB DDR3 RAM

    256 GB SSD + 640 GB HDD (will tell you more info on my dual setup of HARD drive later.

    HD6770M 2 GB with DDR5 Mem


    So everything I post here, you can directly go and fix it.


    For my double HARD - SSD drive setup, here go it.

    2.Caddy -http://www.ebay.in/itm/Universal-12mm-Laptop-Optical-Bay-Hard-Disk-SATA-to-SATA-12-7mm-HDD-Caddy-/321405307668?pt=IN_Laptop_Desktop_Accessories&hash=item4ad53fcb14&_uhb=1

    4.SSD - GB to 256 GB Samsung 840 EVO (best value) or 840 Pro (expensive, but with the best possible performance). Buy SSD that from PrimeABGB - the best online store for SSDS.

    Just a few errors that I don't want to make you-

    1 put the SSD in Caddy and cable of optical drive on a HARD disk. Reason: your SSD will be connected to the Sata 6.0GBps port. You may think that you can directly put a SSD instead of HARD drive and put the HARD drive in the caddy, but HARD DRIVE could vibrate in caddy culminating in his death.

    2 carefully remove the ODD mounting plate and put it on the caddy. You get an extra façade with caddy. With cable, you can still use your DVD burner drive as external.

    For your RAM, anyone with a 1333 MHz will be. CASE latency for most of the brands are the same. Do not go for a 1600 MHz, as it will be a waste of money.

    I should also the total list of expenses involved in this upgrade-

    1 SSD EVO - Rs.11, 000

    2 SSD Caddy-Rs 750

    3.cable - Rs.650

    4.4 GB OF RAM-~ 2600

    Total - Rs.15000.

    Believe me, you will fall in love with your laptop again.

    Just a word of warning-reading on google how to make the best of the SSD. Its much different from your HARD drive and a lot of need to follow different practices. Also, I recommend for a 128 GB, as I personally have 185 GB free on SSD after winning 8 + all apps + 3 heavy games installed. So you can save any amount it.

  • Pavilion Dv6: LX218EA #ABV: (SDS update Boot Error) Pavilion Dv6 product: LX218EA #ABV

    Hi, my HP laptop Pavilion Dv6 product: LX218EA #ABV BeatsAudio Edition is 4 years old is dying.

    I did a test of equipment and is believing that the Hitachi HARD drive suffers completely.

    So I pre-order a new KingSton HyperX Savage 480 GB and I tried to install it but whenever I try to boot the operating system

    It says "A Disk Read Error occurred" Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart.

    * The Windows operating system is installed properly.

    Startup configuration is automatically set on AHCI in Bios

    * The SSD is works great, I tried to install it on my desktop as well.

    * The Hitachi that I have a dynamic disk and I can't clone for the new HyperX Savage.

    I was looking around for a solution and I came up with the idea to take my PS4 Hitachi HARD drive and put the HyperX on it.

    Is there are other Solutions if I install correctly add the SSD or I will try to replace the current HARD drive of the laptop by the disk of the PS4?

    I hope I've provided enough information so someone can help you.

    Thank you.

    Finally fixed, first I shared in two space of the SSD on the installation of the OS, boot & init works very well. then I formatted again and installed normally without splitting the drive and starting works fine I have no problem up to 3 days of use.

    Unfortunately my old HD optical 640Go dies and I need to replace it.  I would use an SSD.  Can anyone give me a suggestion on a good option and if you did, how does it work?

    Hi @sdlloyd,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    It's a great place to find answers and advice!

    You have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to draw your attention to the HP Guide's Forums:

    Learn how to post and much more.

    I understand that the original 640 GB hard drive has failed and you plan to install a SSD drive.

    Here is a link to HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service of Guide. Please note Chapter 3, page 36, section 1, the recommended replacement disks.  You will notice the 160 GB SSD is recommended only if you have an Intel processor.

    When I checked it Pavilion dv6-6135dx Entertainment Notebook PC specifications , you have an AMD processor.

    Other drives may work, but as they are not tested, there is no guarantee that it would be.

  • HP Pavilion dv6 - 6119tx HARD drive upgrade question

    Hi all

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6 - 6119 notebook tx. I am facing a SMART hard disk error and I need to replace it with a new hard drive. It currently has a capacity of 640 GB 5400 RPM HDD Toshiba. All I want to know is can I replace it with a 1 TB hard drive, 7200 RPM (with SATA 6.0 GB/s)? May be I have to 5400 RPM (with SATA 3.0 Gbit/s)?

    Hi kiranmanju

    After some reading on this subject, I think I'll go with MistaB.

    SSDS and hard drives are treated in the same way by the operating system, and they are easily interchangeable. So no, you shouldn't have any problems during the installation of a faster 7200 RPM drive to replace your current drive to 5400 RPM.

    There are only a few things you need to know when buying a compatible disc:
    (A) interface: the vast majority of readers is SATA, and it is what you need
    (B) 2.5 "or 3.5": the first is for laptops, the latter is for desktop computers
    (C) drive height: most of the hard drives 2.5 "are 9.5 mm, and it's what fits most laptops. Some high-capacity drives are 12.5 mm

    Other than that, the rest of the variables are related to performance.

    but I can't guarantee anything of it now. I don't really know why then the user's Guide for your product just omitted part of 7200 RPM if they do not harm anyway. I recommend that contact HP technical support for more details.

    Thank you

    Your laptop supports hard drives: 640 GB + 750 GB (9.5 mm) at 5400 RPM and 7200 RPM, and also 1 TB (12.7) at 5400 RPM. However, I don't know what these 8 or 16 MB means...

  • Pavilion dv6: hard disk gets stuck in a "loop", the private resources applications

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6 (dv6-6145dx) with 4 GB of RAM and Windows 7 x 64 installed, 500 Gb HD (Hitachi , 40% brand free).  It worked very well for a time very, very long time.  Recently installed Office 365 month last for professional use, which I was concerned might be a resource hog, but usually works very well.  I also AVAST! Antivirus Pro is installed.

    Last week, I started noticing a strange problem that I had not seen before.  Some applications have become desensitized.  I noticed the hard drive light was constantly.  So I tried to close some applications (including Outlook), thinking that I was running resources.  But the deadlock problem continues.

    Listening to the hard drive, I could hear this "stuck in a loop.  Something like "click-[bunch of quick clicks] - click-click-[break].  Repeats every 2 seconds.  Continues to go on and on.  If I leave the computer alone for about 15 ~ 20 minutes, I discover it has recovered.  But once I run the intensive program of any disk, this repeats itself.  It doesn't matter if it's a 3rd team application or system (such as the launch of Event Viewer).

    To try to limit this, I started in safe mode with network.  I thought that if it was driver related, it wouldn't happen.  I launch the event viewer and still, the loop of the hard drive goes.  All gloomy.

    My antivirus is up to date. I ran a full scan of the system (F2) and no errors.  I ran the monitor resources and Process Explorer in the hope of identifying what that either method was this... couldn't see just guilty.  I also created a new user and logged in with this account... has always been able to experience this problem.  It is therefore not associated user account.

    I'm at my wit's end.  I am grateful that I have another computer I can use, but this should not be the case.

    Anyone who is familiar with this kind of hard disk behavior consumes resources?

    "If you keep an open mind, life will give you more opportunities."

    I ran another system test and eventually got more details:

    "Disk hard Test" failed

    "Fast hard disk 1" (303)

    "Complete hard drive 1" (305)

    OK, so from what I've found, it's a serious error means that the hard drive has failed.

    He is a computer 4 years.  I never had a hard disk failure in a laptop before, and I had many laptops up to nearly 8 years, without any hard drive problem.  The drive inside is manufactured by Hitachi... they don't exactly have the best reputation.  Anyway, all the research that I have met never goes into detail as to what might have caused the failure and if some readers have a reliability problem.  The answer is always "you need to replace your hard drive."

    Anyway, I will not try to diagnose it further.  I send my laptop in for repair (still under warranty - exhausted soon, phew!).
