I want to upgrade my Hard Drive need help


You may want to stick with the same manufacturer as the drive you now have.
The Toshiba site lists the drive as ATA.
The RPM speed should not matter as long as it is 5400 or higher.
You can get some good deals from reputable on-line stores

You can replace the hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. Best bet would be a 250GB .
Hard drive have come down in prices, you should be able to get a 250 GB. for less then $100.
Western Digital ansd Seagate are my preference.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Hard drive replacement


I'll put it like this; The fact that it's and Ultra ATA 100 interface and that it's a 5400 RPM drive is somwhat of a concern.. Don't know if your laptop will support the 5400 RPM speed, but the good news is,it won't hurt your laptop to try it.
Also, I don't think the Ultra ATA 100 interface will be a problem, maybe require you to change BIOS setting (maybe).
