Hi!..

I need to replace the internal disk drive of my laptop; brand/model is: COMPAQ PRESARIO, CQ61.

My Question is this: Can i use/ replace it with the Internal Disk Drive of TOSHIBA MK3265GSX/ A5230A?.
I could not find any COMPAQ brand; instead, i was given the Toshiba Disk Drive as replacement.

Thank you for your assistance.

Any standard 2.5" laptop drive should work fine - it doesn't matter if it's a Toshiba or a Compaq part. In actual fact neither Toshiba or Compaq make hard drives - they're made by companies like Western Digital or Seagate who specialize in those products. You could just as easily buy one of their 2.5" laptop drives from any retailer.
