Your computer uses ATA drives which topped out around 250MB simply because manufactures switched over to SATA drives. It is a pain to change out disks on laptops since you can only have one internal drive. You then have to reload everything.
Here is one I found: Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 2.5" ATA-6 Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive

  • 250GB
  • 5400 RPM 8MB Cache
  • ATA-6

I'd consider one of the external USB disks instead to store your data, pictures, etc. You could then put it on your desktop or on a new notebook.

I have an hp pavilion zd8000 when i turn on my laptop the bootmenu will come on then the screen will go blank right befor windows start loading. what do i need to do to fix this problem?


Your ROM BIOS is asking you where to find bootable media, and when you tell it the HDD (hard disk dive), the ROM BIOS can't find a bootable partition on it and just quits, leaving the screen blank.

So, either your HDD is no longer connected to the system bus (was the laptop dropped recently?), or
someone (or something - aka virus/worm/trojan/malware/rootkit, etc.) has erased your bootable
OS (operating system) from the hard drive.

Fix: boot from a "Recovery CD" and use the utilities thereon to repair your OS (or at least find what's left of it), and try to reboot.
Failing that, run any/all diagnostics that your ROM BIOS has - especially memory tests and HDD diagnostics. Why?
(a) bad/jarred loose memory (RAM cards) will prevent booting
(b) an HDD that fails low-level diagnostics may never be salvageable and may have to be replaced -
it actually may have had a head crash - which tends to happen when a ZD8000 notebook is
dropped while the system is running - or a head can crash for no apparent reason.

If you can get the system to boot to SAFE mode - run sfc (system file check) as your first attempt
to repair the operating system - its already in Widows, here's how to run it:

START > run > sfc

As soon as you can get beyond safe mode, update your favorite anti-virus package database and
run one (or more ) deep scans, until the last scan that ran to completion found nothing.

HP Pavilion zd8000 Upgrades


i have the same laptop. though your video card is independent, it is still integrated into the system and cannot be upgraded, your only be there is to go to the Radeon website and download the latest drivers for it.(it helps) As for your Ram, you can only upgrade to 2 mb of ddr2.(on mine it made a noticable difference) As far as the hd goes i believe sky is the limit, i went from 100 gb to 160 no problem
