Hmm one way would be to look up the exact model name in the device manager and just Google the name.

Would googleing the disk drive work, there is nothing that says hard drive?

Yes, the item(s) listed under disk drives in the device manager should be your hard drive.

It's a 7200RPM drive, I just searched for "WDC WD50 00AAKS", numbers after the dash are just manufacturing numbers.

BTW- Google found 200 results with the whole "WDC WD50 00AAKS-00V1A SCSI disk device"

I am very happy! How did you find it? I feel like an idiot for not being able to. :(

Oh no problem, I just searched for the prefix of the name instead of the whole thing.
