SOURCE: HDD is cactus, what are replacement alternatives for the OEM?

You can use any 2.5 inch ATA/IDE drive as a replacement. Notebook hdd's are a smaller size than regular desktop hdd's. You can find a good idea online at stores like tigerdirect.com or newegg.com. Hope this helps & please rate this answer fixya. Thanks.

SOURCE: new Samsung HDD hangs up with boot

If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.

The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.

Make sure you use ONLY the cable that came with it or a SHORTER one.

Dont connect via a USB hub

Make sure you only user the power supply that CAME WITH IT.

Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age

There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical

In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.

If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you
but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.

This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.

If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure and just place a new hard drive in there.

Another way to test it it to remove it from the enclosure and connect it directly to a PC with a suitable interface eg. SATA or IDE.

If it IDE make sure that the master / slave jumper is set correctly and also double check your power connection

SOURCE: 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).

yes you can upgrade your hard drive but still on ATA,if you upgrade in SATA you need some converter from ATA to SATA .and since it's a laptop i think its hard to do that thing.

How do I replace the hard drive in my Dell


Did you format the drive before installing it on your laptop. Some laptop will not detect unformated hard disk. Try to format the hard disk somewhere else and check to see if the laptop detect it after.

Since the Redhat install is not seeing the HDD controller, you'll need a sata controller driver to load at boot. You can try this one
