Grandma's Pavillion P-3_max hard drive size & type Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: August 31, 2007 4:36 PM in Storage Share phkhgh August 30, 2007 11:04:30 PM Hi, not sure which forum to post this. Someone gave my elderly neighbor a Pavillion 6465 P-3 desktop w/o a hard drive. Told her I'd try to find what kind & how much for replacement. It's got Celeron 433 MHz. Found very few HDD tech specs searching HP's site, but found on Drive Solutions the exact model: http://www.drivesolutions.com/cgi-bin/shop/ugdtstore.cg... says the orig HDD was 9.6 GB EIDE 5400 rpm. Says the model has 2 IDE connectors. Question 1: what is max size HDD this pc is likely to support? The upgrade HDDs Drive Solutions shows are mostly ATA100, either 5400 / 7200 rpm (same link as above). 2) Given HDD size limitations of the pc, what is likely cheapest size / type commonly available for it now? Will just a "standard" ATA 100 (of what ever size) work? 3) Would an EIDE Ultra ATA 100/133 work, within size limitations? Thanks.

As far as EIDE stuff, the drives will run at the connection speed so dont worry about that. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
