I changed mine to a laptop 500GB sata 2.5 inch drive from amazon.com. These are FUNGIBLE items and I decline from analyzing which of the 120 models is best.
My hard drive is failing and I need to replace it. Unfortunately hp's website says that the part cannot be ordered and customer service sent me to a web site to locate authorized resellers but the only one within 50 miles is Walmart. I'm not certain but walmart usually doesn't sell internal components like this. Do I need one of their HDDs or will any HDD with the same specs work?
I would also like to know if the restore CD I made upon getting the laptop will work with a new drive since all the software was preloaded onto the factory drive.
