Msi hard drive 7200.9 barracuda replacement

My son has a MSI that needs a hard drive since hackers have destroyed his. The hard drive cant be reformatted as we have
tried this. The problem is that I cant find a replacement for the
barracuda 7200.9 st3160812as. I ordered one online but my
money was refunded since the dealer had found his shipment to
be corrupt. I can find the 7200.10 and 7200.11 etc.. so the question
becomes ....are these compatable...If I buy a 7200.something else
can it be placed into my son's computer? That is main question...
Can hackers do this? How can they be stopped because I think
they have destroyed one of my laptops that my son is using while
I attempt to fix the MSI?

You should be able to replace a hard drive with any brand. The only important thing is the connection. If your present one is SATA then make sure you replace with same.
As for hackers, protect yourself with security software from viruses and malware which can destroy your hard drive.

You can replace the hard drive with whatever you want to.... and the drives may have become corrupt but i doubt hackers have "destroyed" them. i suggest using a boot disk that allows you to use fdisk and format.... at the c prompt type fdisk /mbr and then try and format the drive... it should work

you will need to set the jumpers on the second hard drive to slave. Unless they are sata drives then you should have no problem.

after you installed XP and explorer you should be able to connect to the internet and go to MSI.com for a driver scan and update. if for some reason you cant then you can find the drivers you need on the MSI site and put them on a disk to load into your sons computer.
i have put together a few MSI boards and after loading XP, went right to MSI for the scan.

I have a 651 Combo-L (MS-6769-010) motherboard and I would like to add in a Barracuda HDD of 160 GB and a Pentium 4 3.2Ghz processor. Any ideas if the board can take these?


The hard drive should be OK, however you did not say if it was IDE or SATA. IDE will work, SATA is not supported.

The CPU you listed is not supported. You may have a look at MSI support:
