You can install as much capacity as you want, but the 80, 100, 120 and 160 are recommended for this model.

Hard drive for my dv 2842 se crashed.. I want to replace it..Which Hard drive I should go for and what all things should I keep in mind


A good place to look for a new harddrive is newegg.com. What you want to look for is a large cache, fast read/write speed RPMs and harddrive size. A good laptop harddrive would have 7200RPMs 32mb cache and roughly 500 GB harddrive space. Also check quality by viewing user reviews. I personally like Western Digital.

I have a hp pavilion dv 1659 us (dv 1000) the sata drive goes bad


It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.

I have an hp pavilion dv6000 and the disk drive doesn't work


i had the same exact problem with my dv 6000 notebook. The dvd Rom is damaged. U will have to get a new one. I tried lots of software but didnt work. i also wasted many cd'c nd dvd's which it didnt burn and also made them unusable.
So get ur dvd Rom replaced as sson as possible and another tip for future is that these dvd roms give up after writing about 100 dvds max i along with my 3 frnds having dv 6000 laptops have exprienced this. My frnd has now got his dvd rom replaced for the 15th time within 1 and ha;f year.. so replace ur drive.

Need new laptop harddrive


Go to either bestbuy.com or compusa.com and look for the hard drive there. The hard drive will be cheaper going thru either of those places. Also check out pricewatch.com cause you can compare prices there. Also go thru google and check out the shopping results of the hard drive your looking for as well.

Lots of places to check and the hard drive will definitely be cheaper then going thru HP.

 Hello jarkk, I believe your problem is with your backlight inverter. the hard drive should be installed for this process of checking it on an external monitor. with the hard drive removed it will not boot to the operating system. with the drive in, use the external monitor. if the monitor works when plugged into the external monitor plug, this will eliminate a bad video card. if the screen is still black on the laptop screen, replace your backlight inverter. the last case cenario is to make sure your backlights are not burnt out.

Harddrive


You are best putting in the same speed hard drive as came out, ATA 6 has a faster transfer rate 100mbps as opposed to ata/ultra ata being around 66mbps, these are readilly available although more expensive than a regular desktop HDD.
