Hello I have a Compaq Presario v2000 with a IC25N060ATMR04-0 - IBM Hitachi 60GB 4200RPM 8MB Buffer IDE Laptop Hard Drive. The hard drive recently crapped out on me after i punched it. Need to replace it. LOL

I was trying to do some research and making sure i find a compatible one and i think this hard drive i got picked out should work with my laptop. I made sure it was an IDE. IDE is the type of cable connection right? that is the only thing that matters when it comes with compatibility right?

well anyway i picked this hard drive out on newegg and it is also IDE. i thought i would come here to make sure that i am not missing something here before i spend money on a incompatible hard drive.

Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD1200BEVE 120GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" PATA Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive

this should work with what i got right?

thanks an advance.

edit:not sure why link won't work. hope you don't mind copy and pasting it.

Link to manual with installation instructions:

Not sure if the above is the manual for your laptop but, if it is, it confirms it is and IDE drive and the one you have selected should work.
