Whats the largest replaement HD I can put in my Presario

My 60 gb 4200 hd EIDE died and I have been going back and forth with HP/Compaq to determine what is the largest HD I can install. All they can do is keep referring me to their replace parts web page which has an 80 GB replacement.
Part number: 350212-001
Specification: 60 GB Ultra ATA/100 EIDEhard drive - 4,200 RPM, 2.5-inch
form factor, 1.0-inch height
OR
Part number: 350213-001
Specification: 80 GB Ultra ATA/100 EIDE hard drive - 5,400RPM, 2.5-inch form
Which are cost about twice as much as the same drive any where else.

Question:
Is 80 GB the largest drive that this notebook will handle?

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 .

Have an HP Pavilion ze4935wm laptop. Want to upgrade to higher GB and RPM. What is the highest I can go with this type of laptop?


This is an older laptop that uses a PATA (sometime called EIDE or ATA-100) drive.
The largest drives commonly available in PATA type for laptops are 320GB, at 5400 RPM.
There are bigger and faster laptop drives, but they will not work with that laptop since the bigger drives require a SATA interface.
PATA drives are more expensive than their SATA equivalents, it might be better to invest your upgrade dollars into a newer laptop.

Need new laptop harddrive


Go to either bestbuy.com or compusa.com and look for the hard drive there. The hard drive will be cheaper going thru either of those places. Also check out pricewatch.com cause you can compare prices there. Also go thru google and check out the shopping results of the hard drive your looking for as well.

Lots of places to check and the hard drive will definitely be cheaper then going thru HP.

Compaq presario v2414NR, HD acting weird.


They probably never updated the bios, and it's still looking for the old drive, if you get into the bios, you can remove that drive that it's searching for and then make sure that the new drive is being recognised at the 0 position, not 1 but zero, if that doesn't fix it we can go further but that mnmay be the problem, also go into your device manager and make sure you remove the old drive if it's still showing that it is in there. Just uninstall it and restart. the cmos settings should also be cleared by removing the plug and poping out the battery, on the motherboard, it looks like a quarter, it may stll have the old settings stoed in there Good luck, and let us know if it worked
