Hard drive going down repeatedly
Hey guys, posting this for a buddy.
Anyways, this is the problem, he has a DV-1000 HP laptop, the hard drive went out 6 months into owning it so he got anotherone via warranty, well, another 7 months go by and now the hard drive is giving S.M.A.R.T. errors saying drive failure is imminent. Songs on the hard drive are skipping, things are taking 10x longer to run ect ect.
Now, here is the problem, according to HP the hard drive has the interface ATA- 2/3/4/5 and can be purchased from them (of course) but I have NEVER heard of ata 2/3/4/5, could someone please give me some insight as to what this is? Maybe laptops have different interfaces for their hard drives than desktops?
