NTB Compaq Presario V6314EA - new HDD

HP Recommended

I would like to find someone, who got a experience with NTB Compaq Presario V6314EA. This NTB has got Intel 945GM graphic chipset and Core Duo T2350 processor at 1,86GHz under load, otherwise at 800MHz (x6 or x14) and the question is, if the old, dying HDD, could be replaced for any other 2.5' HDD.
Or if one have to buy some special, "supported" by HP only.

Ideal would be a SSD drive, to make things faster and less baterry demanding, however the question is, if anybody tried that yet and if this Compaq V6314EA will "know" the new HDD/SSD drive.

Current situation is, that the HDD is dying as we speak, data has been backuped (some of them aren't even possible to read anymore) and it is necessary to exchange the HDD for a new one.

Anybody got some experience with it?

Yes you can install any 2.5 inch SATA interface drive including an SSD. The drive is in its own bay on the bottom of the laptop and is in a caddy with a proprietary connector over the SATA port. Save the caddy and connector to reuse.

 

If you need any more help like a Manual or video or anything else post back.

That sounds pretty promising, you sure that the NTB will detect it and work well with a SSD drive? Some (tough older and mostly VIA chipset) mainboards did not even recognize SSD when pluged in on their SATA ports, so...

 

But okay, I will trust you on this and proceed 🙂 I will report back sucess or failure.
