One thing OEM are slow to update drivers so the component from the components manufacturer may improve performance but the OEM drivers will get it to run.
Hello,I am new to this forum,
The hard-drive in my laptop is faulty and I would like to know if I can just take a hard -drive from another computer and install that in my machine - I much prefer to use the machine I am used to and so wonder if this will work even though they are different makes of laptop-would this work ?
