Any one you want. A 3,5 factor size HDD will work, but your specs call for an ATA, which is a IDE hard drive, you can't use a SATA drive.

The best place to buy one is called Newegg.

I will post a link for a drive that is ATA.

There are not to many to choose from, ATA is old, everything is SATA now. Go with a refurbished one or go with a larger captivity like 80gig.

I just posted this one as a reference so you know what you can get.

Replace hard drive motherboard


Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

Hard Drive failure


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Computer won't power up. opened case to replace hard drive. After replacing the hard drive the computer would not power up. Reinstalled the old hard drive and still the computer won't start up.


Check your connection between the power supply and the motherboard. Is it possible that your power supply was getting weak instead of the hard drive you replaced? First check the power connection and then try another power supply. If a different power supply boots the computer then you know that it may not have been a problem with your hard drive. You didn't say why you replaced the hard drive.

Smart failure hard disk 4 :wd1600bevt-222ct0-(si)


The error S.M.A.R.T. refers to Hard Drive hard drive that has detected damage to the disk and failure of the drive is imminent.

If the computer is booting to Windows after the SMART error, then back up all data on the disk immediately. The hard drive will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

Also, I suggest that you start the Computer to BIOS and check whether the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS.

If the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS, then try to perform reinstalling Windows supplied in your computer once before getting the hard drive replaced.

I need to replace the optical drive in a compaq presario c300nr laptop. How do I get to the drive?


Hi.

The hard drive cover is located at the base of the computer. To replace the hard drive:

1. Prepare the computer for disassembly, turn it off, disconnect power adapter and remove main battery.
2. Loosen the two Phillips PM2.5×5.0 captive screws that secure the hard drive cover to the computer.(see pic.1)
3. Lift the rear edge of the hard drive cover , and then swing it up and forward and remove it.
4. Slide the hard drive to the right, and then lift the hard drive from the hard drive bay.(pic 2)
5. Do operations in reverse order to install the new hard drive.

Try to hook it up to another computer and see if it works there. This will tell you if the device is failing. If you have found that it failed please see about replacing the power adapter. If still no live the device has failed and needs replacement.
