So my stepmother has this laptop and I've discovered that the hard drive has seen it's last day. I've recently bought 2 different hdds to try to use to replace it now and neither of them has actually fit.
The drive that came out of the laptop(original) is a hitachi travelstar 30gb, 4200rpm, ata/ide.
The first was one I just figured would work without doing much research.
Now that I'm going to have to return 2 drives to newegg because they aren't the correct drives, I'm really curious if there's even a drive I can use to replace?
The reason my stepmother wants to replace this drive is to give to her daughter as she doesn't have anything to use currently as a PC. She would like to cheaply replace this ~$50 as anything much over that she would be better off buying a netbook or something cheap for her.
If any other information is required, I've got the laptop with me and will be able to give anything more. And as always, All help is Appreciated!!!
