Question about Seagate (9W2892-337) 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

80 GB Laptop 5400 HD

This drive CONTINUES to be extremely busy upon EVERY reboot or whenever I need to use any software on the drive it seems to all of a sudden get REAL busy. 85-100% in task manager and I went through and kill as many services I could. I am TRYING to uninstall some rss news reader s/w and some others I no longer need but CANNOT open the add/remove panel. It opens but never populates! I would try a Housecall scan but can't get there! Done MANY cold boots and even tried Safe w/wo networking to no avail. Is it H/W or a freekin bug!?

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read

It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.

Whats the largest replaement HD I can put in my Presario

The HD capacity is defined by the bios software in the computer, if HP/Compaq tells you that 80Gb is the maximum capacity, then I think you should believe them, after all they should be the first one interested in selling more high price products, go for the 80Gb is .
