Re: [Sotec_Averatec_Notebook] Re: anyone upgrade the HD on a 3150p?
- The Hitachi Travelstar series should include a suitable 7200rpm drive. You will need to determine which model will fit your application. With regard to using your desktop to transfer drive data, you will be connecting the aforementioned adapter to a HDD ribbon cable and that to the HDD connector on the motherboard. You may need to make a bios adjustment on your desktop while the laptop HDD is connected. Should you elect to go this route, I would suggest you consult a knowledgeable friend or associate for assistance.Good luck,Chuck
