    You can at any retail Branded 2.5 "SATA HDD 9.5 mm thickness, 1 TB will be OK - no problem with that.

    Looking at the Manual - Page 59-61, the replacement procedure is not just easy to him if you're not used to it, needs great disassembly & may void the warranty if you do it yourself if under warranty. You can Contact HP for this.

    This would be nice.

    HP would replace the HARD drive for free, if that came with the laptop failed in respect of the warranty period.

  • Upgrade hard drive for computer laptop dv6626us

    I searched for the hard drive on my laptop dv6626us upgrades. When I read the comments they seem to all be positive with regard to the replacement of my current (factory loaded hard drive). One of the concerns is that the computer has been delivered to the factory with Windows XP loaded. I don't see the comments of those who have Windows 8.

    Upgrading the hard drive for the dv6626us with windows xp installed at the factory would be compatible with the hard disk depending on whether I have found as being compatible for windows 8.

    recommended update: Seagate portable, SSHD hydrides disk HARD 1 TB Sata-600 n/p.

    The hard drive I have on the computer named above is: WD Scorpio WD1600B EVS - training 60RST0 settings: LBA 312581808.  This hard drive has been charged at the factory.

    Hello mikee1960,

    HP does not have hardware support for Windows 8 on any system purchased before October 1, 2011.  Most of the Windows 7 drivers work in Windows 8.

    Check out this page to see if your computer has been tested by HP with Windows 8.

    You can run the Upgrade Wizard, which will scan your PC and report on what is currently installed on your PC is compatible with Windows 8.  This guide was updated for Windows 8 provides lots of information which is needed for all those planning the upgrade.

  • DV6-6119wm: HP Pavilion dv6-6119wm - replace the hard drive with a hard drive from a laptop Gateway

    OK (deep breath). I have a dilemma, and I hope that you all can help me.

    First of all, the HP laptop in question is a dv6-6119wm QE069UA #ABA, Windows 7 Home Premium.

    A month ago, it began overheating and then blue screened on me with a fan error. I ran it while I was getting this error, which was a mistake, because according to me, he has finally caused the hard drive failure after enforcement of reset factory several times. But I'm getting ahead.

    I replaced the fan and the heatsink myself. Another factory reset. Downloaded and installed all the updates of windows. Ran great for like a week with the exception of the fault 1 hard disk when I ran the Start Up Test.

    Then when I restarted yesterday... He's dead, so he is dead.  Apparently, the hard drive failed completely and comes only a black screen telling me it cannot start.

    So, I have this other model of Gateway laptop, NV55C26u which has stopped charging. I had to put it away and don't worry. I got out the hard drive and tried HP successfully. ! Sorta.

    It considers that the HP is a gateway and as a result, none of the drivers are there for all the good stuffs HP. It cannot connect to the internet and does not recognize the USB flash drive. (I had downloaded all the drivers on another laptop and put them on a pious flash drive I could convince the hard drive it's HP again). Another hard drive WILL work in the dv6, and I had no errors on startup it upward.

    I have no recovery discs or store bought Windows 7, all came with the laptop preinstalled. But I don't have my key to the label.

    Then what should I do? I'm not exactly tech savvy, I know just enough to be dangerous haha, but I tend to go glassy when things get too technical. I thought I could get something Microsoft to reinstall my Windows but I guess they closed this path down a few months ago.

    I have access to 2 other laptops, both HP. A QE304UA of Pavilion G7 #ABA with Windows 7 Home Premium and a HP 250 G2 Portable F7V84UT #ABAwith Windows 7 Professional.

    So basically in order to encapsulate this novel to the top, which can do here to fix my dv6? How can I convince this other HDD HP rather than Gateway? I can create something from one of these other HP laptops? Download something somewhere? I don't want to have to buy Windows again. I love this phone and need her in my life as a game.

    Please help me

    You must do a clean install of Windows on them. The hard drive has drivers for completely different material. Too bad that you did not have your drive to retrieve the value. It would restore the hard drive to HP with all the drivers/software installed. It would depend if the hard disk is at least the same capacity or larger than the original. Recovery discs are reluctant to a smaller capacity hard drive.

    You can order recovery Medai for about $16:


    If you can read the Microsoft Windows 7 of 25-character license key, you can download a Windows 7 ISO file to burn to a DVD or USB flash drive. The version must match that's installed on your PC as shown on the sticker COST Microsoft fixed on the bottom of the laptop. Like Windows Home Premium.

    I have a HP ENVY 14-1150ca Notebook PC with a SAMSUNG HM640JJ hard drive, Windows 7 service pack 1.  I ran diagnostics from the system at boot upward and got a "DST short": message failed.  Failure ID: RGDX02-5KC73T-XD6V4J-60RE03. Product ID: XG981UA #ABC.

    Can anyone suggest that a replacement of the hard disk that I can order, or something similar or somewhat larger is fine.

    Thank you


    Only the hard drive model is a 640 GB drive.  I think that you can easily use a 750 GB drive with no problem, in my humble OPINION.  Depnding the merchant of your choice, Amazon - here are a few choice.  Or Newegg, HEREare good examples.

  • Replacing the hard drive for HP Mini 1140NR


    I need help. I have a HP Mini 1140NR Vivienne Tam edition (NB134UA), which is unfortunately more under warranty. Recently, my hard drive has begun to fail. The original hard drive is a 60 GB Toshiba MK6028GAL 1.8 "4200 RPM PATA drive with a ZIF connector. I bought a new hard drive on eBay very similar: a 120 GB MK1231GAL Toshiba 1.8 "4200 RPM PATA drive with a ZIF connector. For some reason, the drive is not recognized by the netbook. I know it's getting common because I can hear it turn up when I turn it on. But when I try to enter the BIOS, it tries to read the disc (it is said that a primary IDE drive is detected), but ultimately fails to recognize the drive. According to the manual (, this model "supports every 4.57 cm (1.8 inch) parallel ATA (PATA) hard drives. I then updated the BIOS version e.16 F as he supposedly "solves a problem where the system can not be able to complete the hard drive diagnostic test (HDD) in the configuration utility in the BIOS for a Toshiba hard drive". This did not help the issue all.

    My question is this: If this netbook isn't compatible readers of this ability, or did I just get a dud of a hard drive? I would need to know pretty quickly since I only have a limited window to return the player to the seller.

    Thank you in advance for your help!


    Thanks for the update, I will cite this discussion here.

    Unfortunately, Toshiba MK1231GAL cannot work in MBA. See the response from Toshiba:

    Dear Mr. xxx,

    Please contact the Toshiba Storage Device Division of Toshiba Europe.

    The MK1231GAH has a 4 KB (physical) block size - not to be confused with the size of the logical block, which can be selected when formatting a HARD drive.
    The MK1231GAH block size is 4 KB and physics, and it is immutable defined on the set.
    This makes the incompatible HDD for use in an application for laptop or PC/Mac/Linux. It is for use in the applications of (THIS) big electronic public only.

    Good point with the data sheet, we´ll change.
