I have an old La Cie 160gb (maybe 5 years old?) - do you know the specs? rpm, for instance? I need something with 7200. This old one must be 5400, right?

I have a asus eee pc 900 ha and believe the hard drive is no longer good. Slow boot up (9 minutes is fast) and there is a light clicking sound as it tries to boot or access a program. What specs do I...


Sounds like a hard drive problem to me too. I'd get it replaced ASAP. It is a standard 2.5" SATA drive in the 900 HA. In terms of specs, you'll get better performance with a 7200 RPM drive, but worse battery life. Don't get a hard drive a ton bigger than you need - there's no point. Save yourself some money that way. A 250 or 320GB 7200 RPM drive will certainly work. It takes 4 small screws to remove the current hard drive. The only other thing you need to consider is whether or not you want to image the drive, or just back it up.
My recommendation for a cloning program is Norton's Ghost (which is not free). At the same time, for a situation like this, I wouldn't bother imaging the drive and would just get a fresh install of Windows if possible - that's just me though. If you need any more help don't hesitate to ask! Alex

Hello,
your drive has failed at either the power supply level or internal hard drive level.
First, please verify your power supply. When plugged into the power outlet, it should be silent. A defective power supply will hiss or have a high pitch noise to it. If it is defective, replace it and check if the issue is resolved.
If the power supply is silent, one or both of the internal hard drive is failing. If no data is needed, you can either replace the defective one which you will have to isolate by connecting the internal hard drives to a computer or with another enclosure and running a block scan software like hdTune which is free to download. The other option would be to scavenge the healthy drive and use it in another enclosure or inside the computer directly.
If you need the data and the problem was not the power supply, you will need to contact a data recovery center.
Regards,

Need to format without losing saved data


The trick to not losing saved data is to back it up to somewhere else, like an external hard drive.

Can this take a 7200 RPM HDD?


The only compatibility issue for a hard drive with your laptop is the interface, whether it's IDE/PATA or SATA. Seeing as it's an old laptop, it's probably IDE, and I don't think you'll find many 7200 RPM laptop IDE hard drives. All the 7200 RPM laptop hard drives I know are SATA. So, probably not. If you need more help with your laptop repair, contact me through my website.

Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!
