Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I have an HP Pavilion dv9000 purchased in 2007, 17" widescreen with a 140 GB harddrive that is almost full. I purchased a 500 GB harddrive but my system will not acknowledge it. The hard drive works fine in an other computer. Is there a download, BIOS update, or something that will allow my computer to recognize the 500 GB hard drive? I live in South America so getting parts isn't easy.
It has to have SATA Hard Drive Connector DFHS22FR685, if you have this then I would try to format the hard drive to what your operating system is using, either NFTS or FAT32. The drive may not be properly formated for your system.
