HP Pavilion DV6345US hard drive upgrade, 160 GB 5400 RPM SATA 1.5 Gb/s


I need help on upgrading my hard drive on an HP Pavilion DV6345US.

The hard drive is a 160 GB 5400 RPM SATA - 1, 5 Gbps.

I would like to replace it with a drive of 500 GB - 7200 rpm or 500 GB - 5400 RPM.

But I have read that HP Pavilion DV6499 or less may have difficulty using a 7200 RPM drive.

That means that a 500 GB drive to 5400 RPM can be used,

or is the limit of 320 GB 5400 RPM or less?

HP Pavilion DV6000 RV214UA #ABA

Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 CPU T5300, 1.73 GHz 1.73 GHz

    Hi @Chris_8318,

    Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A place where you can find solutions for your problems with the help of the community!

    I stumbled upon your post on the laptop and wanted to help you! I looked in your question about your HP Pavilion dv6500 Entertainment of CTO Notebook and concerns with the installation of a hard drive again. If you keep the new larger than your original SSD and it supports Sata 5400 RPM 9.5 mm, 2.5-inch hard drives, you'll have no problems.

    Here is a link to your manual page 23 for specifications.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    Thank you.

  • HP Pavilion dv6000 Hard Drive Upgrade


    I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 (Entertainment PC), it says on the box of dv6187ea (Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 2 Ghz).

    It's the hard drive died for the second time, I need to replace it and I don't know if this laptop can take sata3. I am now looking to a few Mobile WD2500BEKX black WD 250 GB, SATA3 7200 RPM, 16 MB of Cache and the other has the same features except that it is SATA2.

    So first of all I would like to know if I can indeed use a sata3 or I am limited to sata2, and then what would you recommend as for 7200 rpm from 5400.

    Prices are all Similarly, in reality the 7200 RPM are cheaper, my need is representation only, the battery was almost dead since I bought it (all laptops suffer from it) so I always TI plugged running the kde desktop + many services, I want to say he works a lot.

    Thanks in advance, if I missed some information just make me know.


    As mentioned above, you can use SATA III because it is backward compatible, just pay a little more. In short: you can use the two 3 SATA or SATA 2.

    Kind regards.

  • T3065.uk Pavilion: Pavilion t3065 hard drive upgrade

    I've been trawling the internet to find a definitive answer to the question "can I put my main hard drive of t3065 Pavilion of the Maxtor 200 GB sata I type in a Western Digital 1 TB Sata III type (WD10EZEX for example) '? '" Some sites suggest that SATA III is backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I the 'bus' will be held at the lower speed provided by the controller. Others say that the SATA III is backward compatible with SATA II and SATA II is backward compatible with SATA I but SATA III is not compatible with SATA I.

    Has anyone installing a SATA III tried on a SATA I controller disc?

    Is the card mother puffer2 actually SATA II in the first place?

    SATA II drives are rare, and I would like an answer to that question pretty quickly.

    Thank you very much



    Yes, you can use the player, even if your motherboard supports SATA I because SATA III drives are backwards compatible with SATA I ports. However, keep in mind that the maximum speed of the disk will be slower because of lower speed limits of the port.

    By example, if you connect a drive SATA III in SATA I port the sequential read/write speeds could reach a maximum speed of SATA I (which is 1.5 Gb/s).

    I hope this helps.

    See you soon!

  • The upgrade on Pavilion 9667ea hard drive to SSD

    I think the upgrade my computer laptop 9667ea Pavilion by replacing the first hard drive of 160 GB with an SSD, as the Cruicial M500 240 GB SATA 111, or similar.

    Could you tell me if there are problems in doing this, because I see no other posted messages it may be according to the model of your laptop?

    I advanced and bought the SSD (Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB), which has been installed on the HP Pavilion dv9667ea. Everything went well and I used the Samsung software cloning with the SSD drive (I backed up the C drive beforehand). I have power and data cables, so I need just the package base. The new 250 GB SSD drive replaces the original 160 GB hard drive, I decided to take out the other drive so hard 160 GB. The laptop is much faster at startup and is also faster by using the programs on the laptop. As there are now no hard drives on the laptop, there is now virtually no fan noise, which was inconvenient.

    Thank you for your advice.

  • Satellite A50-111 - HARD drive upgrade


    I need to upgrade hard drive of my laptop because it is very slow. However, I know it's a 60 GB to factory-installed 4200 RPM.
    I'm ready to be upgraded to a fast 7200 RPM, if possible, with a decent capacity, but I'm not sure of the supported hard drive type (IDE?, 2.5?) is a model of 5 years. In my view, there are incompatibilities with the laptops today, hard drive formats, so I really need help.
    Thank you very much for your help!

    These are the specs on the site
    http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/innovation/JSP/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=EU&com.broadvis ion.session.new = Yes & PRODUCT_ID = 97598

    Hey Buddy,

    In my opinion the HARD drive upgrade will not increase performance well then you should try the other options first as reinstalling Windows, or upgrade the RAM.

    Anyway, Satellite A50 use IDE interface, so you can use hard disks of 120 GB of disk space.
    Of course, you can take a model at 7200 RPM, but they need more energy and produce more noise.
    I recommend a 120 GB 5400 RPM model. That s pretty fast!

  • Satellite A40-151 Possible HARD drive upgrade


    are there restrictions on the type of hard drive that you can on this model?

    Number of PINS
    Type of the ATA

    I was watching a Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST980815A, if this helps answer the question.




    I found the info your device comes with 40 GB IDE (ATA - 5) HARD drive. I think in your case, to capacity. High-capacity hard drives are not recognized properly, but I think that with 60 or 80 GB HDD should perhaps be recognized correctly.

    If anyone on this forum can give you accurate information, I recommend you contact your local dealer or service in your country. They are experts upgrade material and they have accurate info on HARD drive upgrade.

    Good luck!

  • HP elitebook 8570w: advise the hard drive upgrade


    Recently, my hard drive stopped with the work. I have a HP elitebook 8570w. The current hard drive that had a 7200 RPM. Now, I noticed my laptop starts heating fast enough. I was wondering what hard drive, I could choose to prevent this from happening so fast.

    Should I choose a SSD driver?

    They are faster than a HARD drive?
    They produce less heat, less power?

    Should I choose a hard disk of variable?
    I read that they are mainly used for NAS servers, would also be a good choice for a laptop?

    I am looking for a new drive hard and then I'm picking why take an upgrade.

    I hope you can answer my question and may have a few speculative.

    Thanks in advance

    You can find an Evo 850 to the Netherlands.


    SATA 300 is SATA II SATA 150 SATA-I and SATA 600 is SATA-III.

    Do not place too much emphasis on the difference. A SSD SATA-III is compatible with any computer laptop SATA version.

  • HP 6470 b 2nd hard drive upgrade. How fast this port works on? SATA I, II or III

    HP 6470 b 2nd hard drive upgrade. How fast this port works on? SATA I, II or III

    I want to put in a 60 GB SSD into the CD slot and want to see how fast it will support as this will be used for the Cache

    Thank you

    The published information is not explicit; He says only: SATA for the expansion Bay while the main hard drive Bay expressly says SATA-III. However, given that this isn't just an optical drive Bay, but also a general 'Bay expansion', it is safe to assume it of on the same SATA bus as main drive and is a SATA III interface.

    Data sheet

    6470b is also supposed to have a slot for a WSSD mSATA, but he is not described in the Manual:


    Obviously the WSSD would work better for cache but you can use a 60 gig SSD in an expansion bay for both cache adapter. Even if the connection is SATA-II, it will be much faster to work for a cache of acceleration.

  • Hard drive upgrade from IDE to SATA for Precision 360

    Hi all

    I need help.  I have a Dell Precision 360 with two hard 40 GB IDE disks.  I would like to move to a WD Caviar 640 GB hard drive and throw the other two.  The WD hard drive is a SATA connection.  I'm sure I need to purchase a controller card, but I don't know what kind to get.

    I've read other messages concerning an upper limit of 137 GB, but I think that referred to as prior to Windows XP Sp2.  I also read that do not mix disks hard IDE and SATA hard drives, DVD IDE burners mix with SATA drives?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated for this kind of upgrade.

    Thanks in advance,

  • The DM1z hard drive upgrade


    I want to improve my DM1Z Notebook PC configured with hard drive of 320 GB/7200 RPM-64-bit Windows 7 to 750 GB.

    I read in the specifications that the hard drives compatible with this camera are:

    • 750 GB-5400 RPM
    • 640 GB 5400 RPM
    • 500 GB, 7200 RPM
    • 320 GB, 7200 RPM
    • 250 GB, 7200 RPM

    Is there a technical reason why this unit does not support hard drives 640 GB and 750 GB at 7200 RPM?

    Thanks in advance.


    Fortunately, it will support hard disks that you mention at 7200 RPM, even if the compromise is a little less time battery and a little more heat (but really nothing significant).

    The link below is the manual of your device

    For hard disks according to the manuals, I don't see that it supports standalone SSD.
