Question about Dell Inspiron 9300 PC Notebook
Yes, personally owning an Inspiron 9300 bought in late 2006, I have upgraded the ahrd drive or hard disk on my Inspiron multiple times. I went from the original factory of 60gig, to a current 750Gig 7200rpm hard drive. Its not an easy process, but its completely doable. Here's what I did:
I purchased what's called a an IDE/SATA to USB adapter, it looks something like this: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1416269&SRCCODE=WEBGOOPA&cm_mmc_o=mH4CjC7BBTkwCjCV1-CjCE&gclid=CLiSjMip_K0CFWOMtgodlyWHrg
You don't have to purchase the one on the link, I'm just showing you what it looks like. You will also need something like Acronis True Image. Once you buy your new hard drive, what you will do is connected to the USB external adapter and clone your existing hard drive. It is very easy to do with Acronis. Then you just have to swap the hard drive in your Inspiron 9300. It removes very easily from your laptop with two screws on the bottom and you pull out the tray. The Inspiron did come with a SATA 2.5" hard drive, so you can buy anything out there. I would recommend on buying something in the speed of 7200rpm as you will get better performance with the faster rotational speed of the hard disk. If you need help or further clarification, please reply to this post.
