    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?

    The harddrive is a standard 2.5" 9.5mm SATA harddrive so you should be fine with any harddrive, SSD or otherwise.
    The 40GB harddrives seem to have something funny about them; the 43415-001 has to be for AMD and the 434743-001 has to be for the Intel. Anything over 40GB is fine though.

    Should you need it the spare bracket kit is 437156-001 but you should be able to re-use the same bracket.
