Most laptops use the same ATA-6 type interface in the 2.5" form factor. I did see some newer laptops with SATA hard drives but I'm sure your's is the regular type. The 1.8" drives are normally on Ultra-protable notebooks. Pretty much any ATA-6 2.5" notebook drive will fit.

By the way, I know they are more expensive but have you checked out the 7200RPM Travelstar drive by Hitachi? I heard 7200 rpm drives load a lot faster than 5400 rpm and way faster than 4200 rpm drives. They use about the same power (about 2.2 watts) as 5400 rpm drives so it shouldn't affect battery life too much. The only time it draws more power is when it spins up to speed but that's usually only when you turn on your computer and it only needs <4 seconds to start-up

You can get a USB adaptor for a notebook drive to "clone" the old hard drive onto your new one. Afterwards, you can put your old drive in the adaptor and use it as a USB storage device.

I copied the hard drive removal part from the repair manuel for you.

Well, if your Notebook is more then a year old, it will work. But if you really want to make sure...

Unscrew the HD from the bottom of your notebook and get it out of the plastic casing. Compare the pins to the one on newegg.

Uhh, batteries dont have memory. but, as the years go by, the lithium in the battery starts to lose its ability to hold an electrical charge. You might beable to find a replacement on Hp's site, or email them at laptop_support_en@mail.support.hp.com. I've emailed them through that email, and they reply fast. Good luck.

Memory you know when the battery is cherged worong or somthing and then becomes dependant on that charge and it messes with it. Lithium ion advertise that it had no memory but that was soon fond to be wrong.

Lithium Ions do lose capacity over a few years. You could try fully discharging the battery until your laptop shuts down by itself and then fully charging the battery to help "calberate" the timer or battery meter.

I have heard but I haven't confirmed that storeing a Lithium Ion with a 40% charge in it helps it last longer.

If it is older than 4 years, you might try a new battery.

If it is an AMD processor in the laptop, they also use a lot more power than Intel Mobils. My laptop battery lasts about 2 hours at most. I can get an extended run battery that will go for 4 hours though but I normally use my laptop plugged in most of the time.

Thanks trying thst right now, but I have 2 more quick questions:

1) How do I turn up the brightness of my screen isn't it like a shortcut pn the keyboard or somthing?

2) Will putting the battery in the freezer hep it at all wheather putting it in the freezer hile it's discharged, half full, or 100% full.


EDIT: I uplugged te laptop and let it use the battery untill it was empty then when recharging it would go up to 80% then no more. So I restsarted the laptop witht it still plugged in then the battery meter tells me 100%.
