I have a laptop dv7-3140el and HD samsung HM641JI 640GB 2.5 "SATA 5400 RPM (to replace car failure). To buy a new hard drive I have to take the same or I can take 7200 RPM instead of 5400? What technical specifications should I look for when buying a hard drive for computer laptop dv7-3140el? I wouldn't make a bad purchase!
Sorry for my bad English
Here are a few points to note when replacing your HARD drive:
You are not limited to any particular drive manufacturer.
The speed of rotation of the disc can be 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM
The new drive HARD should be at least the same capacity (or slightly more is okay) as the original drive - mounting a drive smaller than the original often causes risks with recovery media.
The player at the link below is an example of one that would be perfect for your laptop.
If necessary, the procedure to replace the hard drive begins on Page 47 of your maintenance & Service Guide.

I have a new hard drive in my laptop but cannot get any internet connection.
There is no Windows.I can't even Toshiba settings on my laptop.
How can I do this? Do I have to buy a recovery disk?
On the Toshiba site I tried to order a disk, but each time he asks the serial number, and when I type in, it keeps many say please entry.
I can't get anywhere with it.
The site below may be worth it. I him have not used it myself.
It is not free, but if it does what it claims, it might be useful. In my opinion, it gives a money back guarantee in any case.

I have a XPS 9000 with a hard drive. Now, I would like to remove the hard drive and put an SSD in its place. Then, I would like to do a clean reinstall of win 64. But Dell no longer provides the physical copies of windows. So, how can I move my copy of win 7 64 on the new drive?
Any help would be appreciated.
You can create the recovery (using Dell DataSafe local) discs, or you can order Dell reinstallation media. Dell does not provide media automatically with your purchase (except if you so specify when ordering), but you can order it after the sale. Call support... or someone will probably provide the link here shortly.
I'm fixing my laptop aunts. He a presario c500 compaq running windows vista. I bought a new hard drive. I would like to install windows 7. She could get windows 7 discs for free when she got off the computer, windows 7 was not yet. They have offered free windows 7 for people who bought the PC just before its release. Is it too late? I guess it's too late. Is there anyway I can get windows 7 for free? Or is there any discount for the upgrade to vista. I can't afford windows 7 discs.
In my opinion, it's too late to get a free version or price reduced from Windows 7. This offer was available about two or three years, if my memory is good.
You can Contact HP and ask.
My HP Envy m6-1205dx son is a notebook of 2013. The screen was broken and I replaced one. Now he says that there is not a BONE, I tried to install a full version of Windows 7 Professional, and he said that he there was not a boot device. I've reconfigured the BIOS to boot with the CD/DVD ROM and it started installing. When he arrives at the point of asking where to put the installation there is no option. I checked the connection to the hard drive and it is not a problem here. I think to buy a new hard drive to install the Windows 7 operating system, I am afraid that it will not work or he will say that I need to install the drivers. This laptop originally supplied with Windows 8. Can I install this version of Windows on this laptop? If I need to install the drivers how can I get them? It cannot be a website to download the drivers on your computer. I can't do without the computer having an operating system. I downloaded some drivers from a link, I saw on You Tube and put it on a flash drive, but none was consistent, one of them did read on a different/more older computer I tried to install this OS on and it says that the driver was out of date. It seems to me that a (FULL VERSION) drivers and everything else you might need. I'm not computer savvy, so I do not know! I'm just trying to save my investment of $600 on this computer without spending $300. I can get a new hard drive for $80 and it was on that I would go; However, I will buy a new Windows 8 operating system if it is the only option.
There is no device driver Windows 7 for your model, only Windows 8:
If there is no driver, your PC may not work correctly (No. LAN or WiFi, Audio, USB, etc.) after the installation of Windows 7.
Check your hard drive, if the laptop has been abandoned the drive may be defective and must be replaced.
You can order a support of HP recovery:
