2.5 HDD Help PLZ!!
hi guys..i have a Toshiba 60gb, 5400rpm, 16mb buffer in my dell laptop. For the longest time wenever i move my laptop around, even juss the position, i would hear some hmming noise, and starting about 4 days ago my hdd would make some horrible disturbing noise as if disc was spinning and hitting the edge or something. and since last night, my laptop would have a Hard time starting up and soon, i see this laptop dying on me. so i want to buy a new hdd for my laptop, unless u guys can help me out. i personally never have approached this kind of problem before or even heard of it.
and i have another question, if i have to go and buy a new hdd..what kind should i get? i like the size(60gb), and i want to go with a 7200rpm..but what does the xxmb buffer mean? is it good to have a higher mb buffer or a lower?and what brand is good? i want a brand that'll last me a long time, as toshiba failed on me. PLZ Help! it's urgent. i might go get the hdd later today or early tomorrow. =]
