HP/Compaq :: 7200rpm

Feb 7, 2009

I upgraded the hdds in my DV9543 to 7200rpm's. I didn't copy anything onto the new drives I simply installed Vista onto them, after trying several times unsuccessfully to install XP.

The problem is windows doesnt see the 2nd drive when I go to my computer it only shows one of the drives. Has anyone ever experienced this? Anyone know how to fix it?

I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything, I thought I would try here before HP customer service I have asked them a few questions before and it seems to me that they are reading from a script or something and wouldn't be able to help if they didn't have a manual.

HP/Compaq :: Envy Owners: Raid Using HD 7200rpm

Dec 21, 2009

I know that Envy 15 has the ability to use RAID using the Dual SSD option:

From HP website:
Versatile storage options include the ability to add two solid-state drives in a RAID-0 configuration to improve the overall speed of the ENVY 15 while providing excellent disk performance.

Now my question:
It's possible to use RAID 0 using two HD 7200rpm?
The default one comes with 500GB Seagate then I'll buy another one of this + the hd caddy and cable to install it.

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv7t Laptop: 5400rpm Vs 7200rpm

Mar 23, 2009

Has anyone been able to tell a difference between 5400 rpm and 7200?

I think awhile back i ran some benchmarks, there may have been a little bit of a jump between the two.. but i cant recall if in the real world it was that noticeable.

i took a look at some relative numbers, i think the performance mark diskmark for a 7200 rpm drive was around 388, while on the 5400 it was 255, thats a 35% jump if accurate.
Also, i'm not sure if 7200rpm would drain the battery quicker etc..

I had initially orded it with a single 320gb 5400 rpm, i was thinking of adding a 2nd (primary) 7200 rpm drive.

Also.. are these hp dv7ts using sataI or sataII drives?

Dell :: Upgrading From A 5400rpm Hdd To A 7200rpm Hdd

Jul 10, 2009

I skimped a little on the hard drive when I ordered my xps1640. Since then I have set up raid on my desk top & notice a huge improvement. Since doing that my xps has started to seem very sluggish. Would there be much of a noticeable speed increase taking out my xps 5400rpm hdd & replacing with a 7200rpm hdd?

Dell :: 5400rom To 7200rpm HDD Worth It

Dec 20, 2008

I am about to receive my brand new XPS 1530 and it was ordered with the 320gig 5400RPM drive. I will mainly be using the system as a light weight gaming/entertainment laptop as i travel.

I am considering buying a new 500gig 7200rpm HDD but i want to know first if it will make that big of a performance different?

Dell :: NO 7200RPM On I1720 = On Crack

Sep 19, 2007

I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.

I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.

5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.

I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.

When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.

Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....

Dell :: Segate 250G 7200RPM -- Gets Too Hot

Jun 20, 2009

I am hating this drive big time.. performance is good, but the heat on left side of the palm rest is unberable. After few mins of placing the palm on left hand rest it is burning my veins... I still feel the burn sensation for long time even after taking the hand out.

All the guys w/ Segate 250G 7200rpm experience the same? I have 2 E6400s, both have same HD, same heat problem. Seems like a bad designed drive... probably have to start looking at SSDs, but damn those too expensive!

Dell :: 320GB 5400RPM Vs. 200GB 7200RPM ...

Feb 23, 2008

I'm looking to spend a little tax money on a HDD upgrade, but I'm just a little curious what everyone else on here thinks about my options and what you would do if it were you?

I can either go with the 320GB Western Digitial SATA300 or a 200GB 7200RPM alternative.

Tom's Hardware has a review of some of the recent additions to the 320 5400RPM Drives and they say the performance is at or above any 7200RPM drives out there.

Dell :: XPS M1530 -Upgraded To 7200rpm HDD...no Difference..

May 29, 2009

I just upgraded from a WD 5400rpm HDD to a WD scorpio black 7200rpm HDD. Despite reading people saying it makes a noticeable difference...

I have yet to notice any difference in terms of access times and system performance.

Transfer times with my external HDD have decreased but apart from that, it all feels the same.

Maybe I expected too much but I'm kind of disappointed. Is it just me or has anyone else experienced the same

Sony :: 128GB SSD (MLC) Vs 320GB 7200rpm In Z690

Feb 4, 2009

which drive is the better choice between the 128GB SSD (MLC) vs 320GB 7200rpm options currenlty on the Z690.

I've heard the MLC SSD's are fast in certain areas, but arent always the best options vs the 7200rpm drives yet... and have some issues with multi-tasking, etc. So basically, my question is how is the 128GB Samsung MLC rated vs the 7200rpm drives Sony uses?

I play WoW on this laptop, and find that the entire lower chassis gets VERY hot. Have installed RivaTuner which monitors GPU temperature, and the GPU seems to run at up to 83C...! This seems to be pretty hot.
Has anyone got any similar experience with this or a similar laptop?

Apple :: Impact Of The 7200rpm HD In New 17" MBP On Battery Life And Boot Time

Jul 18, 2009

I am considering buying a 17" MBP mainly as a desktop replacement for my PC, since I really don't stand it anymore.

Hence, I am going to ask 2 basic questions but I have not been able to find precise answers to them:

1. what's the impact on battery life of having a 7200rpm HD in the new 17" MBP? Will I still have my around 7hrs of juice?

2. what's the impact on boot time? I have just tested the 5400rpm version, and I didn't find it exceedingly quick, i.e. it took him around 47 seconds to boot. Would the 7200rpm decrease this?

One possibility would be to buy the standard version, and then, in a few months, upgrade with a 256 Go SSD...

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU

Oct 21, 2009

Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS

Jun 30, 2009

Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.
