  • replacing hard drive for Pav P7-1240 & SSD

    Part 1: I have a desktop computer Pavilion P7-1240. It is just 1.5 years... 1 TB Hitachi hard drive has not now.  I went out and bought a WD 1 TB Caviar Black internal Performance Desktop retail hard drive Kit (WD1003FZEX); go mainly for the guarantee of 5 years... the rest of the features seemed to match (3.5 ", 7200, 1 to, SATA 6) except the WD a 64 MB cache, the Hitach did not state on the player the amount of cache.  Will this swap drive out like for like or any other change in the drivers, etc. should be done?

    Part 2: I would like to install a 128 GB SSD in the P7 as the main OS drive.  What changes should be made so that the system recognizes the additional disk.  I tried to plug into the SATA4 slot and the power cable, but the system did not not recognize/see the SSD drive.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated for these two.   Thanks in advance.


    I return the drive and get a non-advanced HD format.  This way your recovery media, HP will work. If you do not create the external HP recovery media then contact HP support and order media.

    In addition I send back the SSD and order 240 + GB model so that the support of HP recovery will allow a restoration works.  If you decide to go with this option, then keep the hard drive for now.  It may be "well-prepared" once you have Windows 7 running with the latest updates. At least BIOS settings have been tampered with then the SSD is probably dead.

    While there may be other ways to get your PC up in the race without using the HP recovery media, this can and has led to confusion later when start HP function keys do not work properly.

    Hello. I have problems of replacement of a failed hard drive in my HP Pavilion dv7-6154nr notebook running Windows 7. New HARD drive seems to install OK, but I get a Windows Boot Manager error when I try to run the recovery disks created when the system was purchased.

    Thank you.

    You are the very welcome.

    Now you get the drivers from the support page and driver for your PC. &

    If you have a problem to find drivers (such as the wireless, unless you already knew what the wireless adapter model you have in the PC, you will not know which driver to install).

    Just after the hardware ID's for all you can't find the drivers.  Who need device drivers appears in the Manager for devices with a little yellow. brand and labelled with material generic terms such as a network Contoller or PCI device, etc.

    Drive external HARD is also a good solution for more disk space.

    Thanks in advance for any help


    I see no reason why a hard drive 7200 RPM would not work.

    I put SSDS in both my latops and have no issues.  An SSD was in need of a firmware update but otherwise no problem.

    You can check the size of the hard disk to ensure than a standard notebook drive 2.5 "can hold in the hard drive caddy.

  • Replacing HARD drive for compaq hp 6515 b

    I'm just wondering if can replace with SATA hard drive, whose capacity is greater than 160 GB? I saw in the technical sheet it says 80/120/160, I am sure that I am I can exceed that.

    I'll buy a 320 GB one.

    Your response is appreciated.


    Why not more (capacity)? 320 GB or 750 GB only $30 more. Check and update BIOS first. 2.5 "HDD are now much cheaper (I bought a 750 GB month last for $199 due to flooding in Thailand.) This week, the same as that is only $155). In fact, you can now buy 1 TB (9.5 mm thick).

  • Replacing hard drive for laptop after Windows update failure

    The internal hard drive is not now on our Pavilion dv9700 CTO Windows Vista 64-bit. I would like to replace it with a hard drive from equivaltent, but I am unsure on how to provide for the operating system (we want Windows7 instead of Vista) and productivity software (essentially MS Office Pro). What is the best way to go about this? I have Win7 CDs I have installed on another computer that has also died and gone out of service, so I prefer to use them rather than buy a new license. Ditto for the OEM Office supplied with this notebook.

    Please provide suggestions that you will need to perform this type of upgrade. We must keep costs at a minimum right now and since nothing else seems to be failing on the 9700 repalcing the part and reconfigruing seems the best way to go. Thanks in advance for any help.

    You can replace it with this number of HP spare. It will be smaller, slower, and 3 times more expensive. Computer laptop SATA hard drives are interchangeable, generic, industry standard. If you buy the one above and it doesn't work PM me and I'll buy it for you at your expense.

  • X 40-replacement hard drive for more capacity - CD

    I have a 40 X, which works fine, but I continue to faced with 15 GB hard drive capacity, so now have a replacement of 60 GB.

    Find a CD with Windows XP and especially the drivers on this subject, I can't.  Looking at the other sections of the forum, I start to think that a CD was not necessarily initially sent with the X 40.

    If this is not the case, how can I create a CD with the drivers and the Windows original XP?

    If a CD is provided with the system, how can I get a replacement if outside the warranty period?

    I had the same problem with my x 40. I bought a device cloning for 45.00 on ebay and was able to clone the larger hard drive and it worked. It validates, it is still a legal system as far as microsoft is concerned. I used it on ibms, valleys and a gateway. what you do, is leave your old hard drive in your computer and attach your new appliance of cloning. He will hold through the usb port and will copy all of your old drive to the new. It will leave everything on your old drive and you can keep it for a backup in case something happens to the new. the device is called an alley to apricorn, the accompanying software is called ez gig II cloning software. There are 3 different connections on the device you can clone any hard drive that is done.  your drivers will copy, your files, movies, all programs, it will be just copied to the new.  If you don't want to install the software on your old drive because you do not have the room for it, you can go into bios and set your computer to boot from a cd drive, and you can start from the cloning software.  It takes about half an hour to clone your drive.  I was buy x40s on ebay without hard drives and cloning of new readers with my original drive and then install the new readers and all valid by microsoft. It works really, and I believe that it's the only way to do it.  Apricorn has a web site where you can no doubt but it but its cheaper on ebay.

    Hi Anand

    SATA III drives will give you only the 6 GB/s speeds in laptops which have motherboards that support, otherwise only default to 3 Gb/s drive. But it will certainly work with a slight increase in performance for your laptop. WD Black you have chosen is a good.

  • HP ENVY 14 2020NR: need a recommendation for a replacement hard drive


    I have an a HP ENVY 14 2020NR with a hard drive died. Blue several screens before the new year, did a complete system restore, which seemed to have fixed things. Unfortunately, after 10 days the blue screens are back. The unit is several years old, and my next step is to replace the hard drive. I have all the data backed up elsewhere and ready DVD restore disc.

    Here are the specs of the drive:

    Hitachi disc HARD 7 K 750-750. P/N H2T7501672S.

    I am trying to identify the right replacement hard drive. Looks like it was 750 GB at 7200 RPM. Some choice out there. Can anyone recommend the correct replacement hard drive?

    Thanks in advance!


    Based on the laptop HP ENVY 14 - Maintenance Service Guide, it seems that your computer supports the following readers and more.

    6.35 cm (2.5 in) hard drives (HD) and the SSDS (SSD), 9.5 mm (. 37-in) and thicknesses of 7.0 mm (. 28 - in)
    Serial ATA
    Supports the following hard disk configurations:
    ● 750 GB (7200 RPM)
    ● 640 GB (7200 RPM)
    ● 500 GB (7200 RPM)
    ● 320 GB (7200 RPM)

    Supports the following simple SSD drive configurations:
    ● 128 GB mSATA,
    ● 80 GB, mSATA
    ● 160 GB, SATA

    According to the above information, any hard disk 2.5 "SATA or SSD of 9.5 mm and 7.0 mm profile should work fine. This includes the newer readers who are more capacious.

    Please see Newegg - internal laptop hard drivesfor a few recommendations of HDD and Newegg - internal SSD for a certain number of decent SSD.
