Help please my old laptop harddrive went. Dell inspiron 1150 . specs says interface ata 100. Will Hitachi Travelstar 5K160 HTS541612J9AT00 work ? Its interface is ata 133.
most ata133 ide drives will fall back to the ata100 speed with no issues. the only thing i would check is how large of a drive the laptop bios will see. if the drives are the same size or close you should not have any issue.
