The main factors in upgrading your drive are interface type and physical size, specifically the thickness of the drive. I haven't had any issues come up from substituting a drive of a different RPM yet. BTW I have a drive that's the same model as yours, it came from a computer that acted up like you're describing, the owner didn't worry about it, and one day it decided it wasn't going to wake up...you shouldn't have any trouble going from an 80gb to a 160gb drive.I believe your drive is an IDE interface, So just make sure you don't order a SATA, toshiba has comparable drives in either interface, I'd look for a good warranty period if the prices are about equal on the drives you're considering

Replace laptop hard drive or replace laptop. Current 80 GB Toshiba?


It depends on what you run on this laptop ..but if you only run windows xp ..you do not need a larger hard drive ..and if you only need space to store data ..you can just get a usb external hard drive and avoid the trouble ..The hard drive will be fully usable in other computers too and this is the advantage if you will upgrade in the future to another one with high performances ..
If you have at least a 1.6 cpu on it ..and 1 G of ram memory and you think you may run windows 7 ..you can upgrade it to a larger hard disk ..but remember that this one runs on ata ..and I'm not sure it worth the trouble .
If you have at least 1 G of ram memory on it you can run windows 7 with this hard disk too ..but you will probably have to change the partitions configurations and make C drive at least 40 G so to have space to run it proper..
let me know if you have other thoughts related with this matter ..and i will answer it ..Please rate my answer to help my activity here ..thank you ..!

The hard drive is beyond repair.
To get your laptop working again, replace the hard drive with a new one, install Windows on the new hard drive, plus the laptop's device drivers and install your programs.

Hi, my Sony Vaio starts with message about upcoming hard drive crash. The HD is however Toshiba's, MK8025GAS-(PM). Is that possible? My laptop is 4 years old. Thanks

It is possible that the hard drive is not Sony brand hard drive as they do not manufacture there own hard drives. As for the message that you are getting it is because the hard drive is failing over to many sectors. With the drive being 4 years old this would be just the drive wearing out. So I would recommend you back up your data ASAP and replace the hard drive. You should be able to replaces it with the same type of drive. You just need to know if you need a PATA or SATA drive. The link below will help you figure that out.

The computer keeps crashing with a blue screen I've done a clean install of win xp home after formatting but problem continues no changes have been made to hardware or software. Is this a hard disk...


Hello.

Yes, since you have reinstalled Windows XP with the same result, you likely have a hardware problem.

The first choice would be to test the memory - one module at a time, to see if a faulty module.

Run your computer's diagnostics to see if you get a clue.

As you mentioned, your hard drive could be failing.

Hope this helps.

Driver problem


Hi Vicient,

I have the following questions to evaluate the problem.
1) What's the port your harddrive supported? Is it standart IDE cable or SATA.

I have a hardrive utility software that can detect and access any type of harddrive but you need install it at running windows.

Please email diazphi@gmail.com and dont forget to used the subject "Driver Problem" if sound interesting for you.

Sincerely,

Philip
