HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Hard Drive Accessing

Jan 27, 2009

starting from yesterday i cant seems to access my hard drive. everytime i try to go into my computer then double click on the hard drive, it would enter but then freeze and becomes non-responsive. i cant enter the folders like programs, user, windows...etc, it would just freeze. i have no problem other drives such as removable flash drive, this only happens with the hard drive. i have to close explorer but then my desktop would be blank with just my wallpaper, so i would need to restart or log off but it will take forever. also i notice my hard drive LED is always on and the temperature is getting really hot, it never happened before and i ran scans with avg and it shows i hav no virus or spyware. so idk wat is the problem, it happened all of the sudden it was fine 2 days ago,

HP/Compaq :: Where Is My Hard Drive Space Going On My DV5T

Jan 26, 2009

I have had my dv5t 6 days. Every time I check, there is less and less space and I am doing nothing really but surfing and e-mailing, and trying to get the TV tuner to work right. lLast night there was 177GB free, shut it down and went to bed. Checked it after a half hour or so this morning and there was 175 GB, now here I sit in the library and I just checked it again after e-mailing and downloading a 2mb file, and there is 173 GB free. I haven't even begun to use it. Juse a few days ago there was 183.

I recently purchased a new HP laptop and have a few questions.

The computer came with a lightscribe drive and is removable since it also came with a empty filler for the optical drive. Is it ok to remove the drive and/or plug it in while the computer is on ? Same thing w/ the battery... is it ok to pop the battery out when the computer is on AC power, or put the battery back in when the computer is plugged in ?

HP/Compaq :: HP Drive Bay Hard Drive

Apr 6, 2009

I am thinking about getting a new DV4T and then upgrading the hard drive to an X-25 ssd, but obviously it'll only be 80GB which is an issue. I just read the NBR review of the DV4 and it seems that there is a special hard drive you can plug in into the optical drive bay to boost your storage space... i've been searching everywhere but I can't find the thing... anyone know where/if this thing does in fact exist and if it's compatible with the "new" DV4s?

HP/Compaq :: ENvy 15 Second Hard Drive

May 2, 2010

just picked up a new ENVY 15 from Asia. It was preconfigured on special with decent specs. The only downside is that it only comes with a 500GB hard drive. I was looking under the North American specs for the customizable model and noticed that there is an option for a secondary hard drive. Just wondering if anyone can confirm this? Don't want to operate on this beauty if the second drive bay doesn't even exist.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000- Hard Drive

Mar 2, 2010

I have an HP-dv2000 laptop hard-drive that's completely crashed now.

I have a Dell XPS laptop 320gig Sata Hard drive that I am trying to replace it with, however when I plug the hard drive in and try to turn on the power. All that happens is all the lights on the laptop just blink really fast, along with the multimedia quick buttons, continuously.

If I remove the hard-drive and it will actually go away and start, it will start up the HP screen thats it.

Is the Hard-Drive dead?

HP/Compaq :: Dv8 Hard Drive Caddies

Dec 13, 2009

I am planning on putting another HDD into my dv8 with two hard drive bays. I am currently using one of the bays for a 320GB 7200prm drive. I'm probably gonna put another 320GB 7200rpm or 500GB 5400rpm HDD in. However, I am not sure where to purchase a hard drive caddy from. There is one from NewmodeUS for around $40 + $5 shipping and there is a one that is a genuine HP part from the HP parts and store that costs around $50 + $10 shipping. Where do you guys think I should buy it from?

The link for the Newmodes one is [url]

The one from the HP parts and store is [url] and type in the part number 483862-001

HP/Compaq :: HP Hard Drive Replacement

Jan 30, 2009

I bought a hard drive (Seagate 320GB SATA 2.5") intending to upgrade my storage space which is currently 160gb. I checked to see if the drive was compatible (the drive my HP dv6500t shipped with was a Toshiba MK1637GSX) and I had figured it was since both were SATA.

The hard drive arrived today. I decided that before I begin putting my drive image on the new drive that I check to see if it'll fit. I open it up and take the drive out and to my surprise I see that the drive that was inside the laptop had some kind of pin-connectors.

The Seagate laptop did not. I took off the caddy that was holding the hard drive, but I noticed that the pin connectors were a part of the hard drive itself.

So this has left me rather perplexed. I looked online and found caddies and SATA connectors for a dv6000 laptop but they were going for around $35.

Is this normal or am I just missing something here? Should I have ordered a different drive?

My laptop is a Pavilion dv6500t purchased October, 2007.

HP/Compaq :: Proprietary Hard Drive

Apr 23, 2010

if the HP laptop hard drives are proprietary or not?

The reason I ask is that my dv9608ca laptop is dead, but I am 90% certain that the hard drive is fine. So I thought I would salvage it and use it as an external hard drive.

So I bought an external enclosure which is for 2.5" SATA drives. However, the prongs on the hard drive are twice as tall as the spot for them to go in, in the enclosure.

The reviews for the hard drive enclosure have been all positive, so it obviously works.

Mar 24, 2010

I need to replace the hard drive in my DV6654 and am not sure if it is a 2.5 inch or not. I have not been able to find this information anywhere I have looked. The only thing I know is that it is a wd2500bevs-60ust0. It is 250GB. Can I put a 500GB in it? I have read that a computer may not recognize the new drive if it is too large.

HP/Compaq :: 6308nr- Hard Drive

Mar 14, 2010

I have a hp dv 6308nr that is about 3 years old. Something that I did to it recently caused the hard drive to go bad (new battery, new charger, new ram, not sure). Anyway, I don't really want to put a lot of money into a 3 year old laptop. Also, I don't have any restore cd's. I do have everything backed up on an external hd. But, wouldn't I have to purchase windows all over again to install it on my new hard drive? Would I be better off just getting a new computer and selling this one for parts or can I get a new hard drive cheap somewhere?

Apple :: How To Remove One Of Two Hard Disk Icons Off Desktop In Leopard

Jun 15, 2009

I have BootCamp configured and my HD is partitioned into two. In Leopard, I display the Hard disk icons on the desktop, but now I have the Windows hard disk too, which is annoying. I never use it and it's annoying. If I go to the finder settings and turn off the "display hard disk" setting, all my HD icons disappear, even the Macintosh HD one. How can I remove only one HD icon (the Windows HD)?

HP/Compaq :: DV9774ca- Hard Drive Woes

Mar 20, 2009

On my DV9774ca theres two hard drives. The second (D) drive has started acting up. I download torrents and newsgroup Tv shows to it, leaves the C drive free. Its started to freeze the system if I sometime do stuff on the D drive, like un-rar a movie on the D drive.Theres no odd noises, nice and quiet.

I did the hard drive scan and fix on the Tools tab in Properties of the D drive. It gets to test 4 and says its at '10% File 359 of 17254' and freezes there then!
I did the diagnostic in the BIOS for this drive and it estimates 89 minutes to do the test, yet after 20 seconds it stops and says something like '#100068 Replace Hard Disc'.

I gather the hard drive is toast. Its a WD 160GB. Came with the laptop exactly 12.5 months ago! I called HP and I am out of luck, I thought they could swing it for me.

Am I right it say its toast? I gather its mecahnical, as thats what the BIOS looks for? I can't just reformat it?
