I bought a new 500gb sata hdd to upgrade my ps3s old 40gb one and after formatting it my ps3 runs slow meaning I cant play any games, any ideas why this is?


Make sure the new hdd runs at least 5400 RPM. A 7200 RPM drive is a little better (or a Solid State Drive if money is of no concern).

I have a Sony vaio vgn-cr120e laptop,the factory harddrive has 140 GB 5400 rpm,I want to buy an external harddrive that has 7200 rpm,I would like to know if the 7200 rpm going to be compatible with my PC.


For and external USB drive, the RPM is of no consequence. Internally it should only help speed up the access time, assuming it is the same type of drive.
Hope that helps.

What is correct hard drive to replace original in an Acer 5051 aspire laptop?


To my knowledge the Acer Aspire 5051 takes a SATA HDD, any 2.5" SATA HDD will do, but you will need to install an operating system once you get it. Here is a link to all the new SATA HDDs on ebay:

What is the max hdd capacity I can install in a HP ZD8000 laptop?


Your computer uses ATA drives which topped out around 250MB simply because manufactures switched over to SATA drives. It is a pain to change out disks on laptops since you can only have one internal drive. You then have to reload everything.
Here is one I found: Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 2.5" ATA-6 Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive
  • 250GB
  • 5400 RPM 8MB Cache
  • ATA-6

I'd consider one of the external USB disks instead to store your data, pictures, etc. You could then put it on your desktop or on a new notebook.

I have an old La Cie 160gb (maybe 5 years old?) - do you know the specs? rpm, for instance? I need something with 7200. This old one must be 5400, right?


Lacie drives have a 5400 RPM on there 160GB line nothing really changed until 500 GB to 1tB at 7200 RPM.

so the answer is 5400 RPM

Hope this helps please do rate and leave feedback.

Replacement hdd for a Toshiba MK4026GAX (ATA)


Any brand-new ATA hard-drive (you probably won't find any new hard-drive smaller than 80GB) will be compatible. Pay a few extra dollars for a 7200 RPM drive (rather than 4200 or 5400 RPM).

Gateway notebook model MX8711 is freezing up - i get SMART msg that hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced asap - what hard is installed in this model?


Your laptop comes with a 100 gb SATA interface HDD running 5400 rpm. Any SATA interface hard drive will do. Pay a little more and get the speed up to 7200 rpm and you can use any capacity you can afford.

I own a HP Pavilion dv4-1433sb laptop with a 250 gig hard drive - I want to install a 500 gig drive, but do not know exactly which drive is plug compatible for install. How do I find out what to buy?


I'm not clearly understanding what your saying.

You want to install a 500gb HDD in your laptop correct?

Your looking for "sata HDD", these are laptop HDD. Usually on the box or on the HDD there is a sticker saying what type they are.

The second choice is how much gb you need, as you said 500.

Thrid choice is your "rpm", right now the two types are 5400 and 7200. This is how fast the drive works, 5400 is cheaper and 7200 is much more expensive and faster. So if your on a budget get the 5400 rpm. Like before it will say it on the box/sticker of the HDD.

Yes, your laptop can support the 7200, so its your choice on how much you are willing to spend.

Go on HP or youtube and you will find "how to" install a new HDD if you are not sure what you are doing.

New hard drive choices


Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!

HDD failure on an ACER laptop


With the exception of interface, laptop hard drives (2.5" drives) are easily interchangeable. You can look up the specs of the drive you pull by googling the manufacturer and model number, but the main specs are interface (sata or ide, yours is ide according to the info I found about this laptop- not interchangeable with sata), drive speed (yours probably 5400 rpm, faster ones are 7200), buffer size (usually 8 MB).
So, if you think the issue is your drive, check out something like:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1277&name=2.5-Hard-Drive
although Iwould probably go to a store personally instead of any kind of mail order. Take your old drive with you if you are not sure. You could even put in a bigger capacity drive; I believe your laptop came with only 80GB??.
