I don't have a laptop so I can't help you with details but if you look up the specs for your machine you should be able to determine what hardware will fit.

I have never seen secondhand laptop HDs selling as cheap as 3.5" drives so you may have to shop around a bit for that.

Flash,

I've searched the web and come up with some firmare updates for my model drive, but they seem to be manufacturer specific (meaning, they seem to be associated with the company which manufactured the laptop, rather than the specific drive). I'm courageous (i.e. "foolhardy") enough to give one of them a shot, though...however, since I don't have a hard drive on the computer, I'll have to create some kind of a windows boot disk and boot and run the update from that. ugh. I have to admit, though, that I'm not too hopeful that this will clear up the problem, but you're right that it's worth a try.

Go ahead, we'll watch. Laughing
