Replacement Hard Drive for a Pavilion dv7-1245dx

I need to replace my hard drive in my pavilion dv7-1245dx. It is now a 320gb 5400 rpm drive. I want to use a 500gb 7200 rpm drive. Will this size work ok in my notebook. Will I have to update the bios first?

Yes it will.

It will also affect your battery time because the 7200rpm drive uses more power.


As long as its SATA notebook drive it will work.


Check Best Buy. I just bought a WD Scorpio Blue 320GB 5400rpm drive for 49.99.
