Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
The drive you need to replace your old one with is an IDE drive.
80 GB is the largest drive that your PC came with.
Do not exceed 120 GB, or you may have issues (like the drive not being recognized in the BIOS).

I don't work for HP.
Google the part number like I did for any of the hard drives, and you will find descriptions of them being IDE drives.
