Hard drive warranty



I have a dead Hitachi HDD retrieved from an old DV2000.


The laptop is out of warranty, but hard disk warranties usually last 3-5 years. The drive was produced in July 2006, so I hope there is still time to get a warranty replacement. Using the drive S/N, Hitachi web site says I should contact HP, but I couldn't find anything about this on the HP web site.


So, my questions:


1. Will I be able to get a replacement drive?

2. How? [e.g. Where is the RMA generation (URL?) / who can I talk to?]


Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Hard drive warranty

The drive is an OEM drive and is covered by the HP warranty (1 yr).  You only get the longer warranty if you buy a retail Hitachi drive.
