Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Hard drive upgrade

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.

    There are no letters after the 9000. It just says HP Pavilion dv9000. I hope that helps. Thanks for your quick reply.

    My main drive is failing and I need to replace. I have a dv9230us. I am pretty clueless when it comes to computers, so any help is appreciated. I was thinking of upgrading to a 250-320G drive. It currently has a 100G.
    I wan't an ATA drive, right?

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.

I have a acer aspire 3684NWXMi series with a 80 GB hard disk drive and want to upgrade to the 320 - 500 GB do I have to buy a certain make or brand for it to work in my laptop?


According to this review there is no optical drive, (CD/DVD drive),

http://www.naaptol.com/laptops/acer-aspire-3684nwxmi/P/779.html

The new harddrive is blank. No Operating System on it.

No Windows.

After a person installs a new harddrive, the basic procedure is to use the Restoration Disk, and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

No optical drive.

[No Restoration Disk is NO problem. Contact HP Support.
In the US it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have more info for US, and other countries if you need it ]

This means you will go through some 'changes', if no optical drive.
More than I believe you may wish to take on.
(Don't want to overstep myself, or seem rude)

The next thing is there may be a harddrive limit.
Might be capped at 135GB, and not allow a 300, or 500GB harddrive.
If this holds true the harddrive is then partitioned;

300GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 3 partitions, of 100GB each; or 4 partitions of 75GB each.

500GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 4 partitions of 125GB each.

Fools BIOS into thinking there is just a 75GB, or 100GB, or 125GB harddrive; instead of a 300GB, or 500GB unit.

Yes. More headache if you may not be adept.

I suggest using an external harddrive instead.

Just my thoughts,
Regards,

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.

Hp pavilion dv9000 blue lights on won`t boot stuck just cli


Sounds like the harddrive went bad.
Some people call it the click of death.
Put the laptop to your ear near the harddrive and you will hear the clicking coming from there.
Good news is that it's easy enough to change the harddrive.
Bad news is you lose all your data to this point.
I hope this helps and i'm sorry that happend to you.

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.
