Ok. Heres the background
I have an hp dv6 3019ax, bought about a year ago, and ill be honest with you, its given me nothing but trouble since day one of purchase, from switchable graphics, switchable audio etc to the physical assembly and cheapness
Any how, i recently ran into error (no had drive found, ctrl + alt + del to restart).
So mu HDD is gone, i was having issues with a previous installation of windows, so i reinstalled windows, ran windows update and returned today from work, to find my HDD dead. That another thing, this lappy runs ExTREMELY hot all the time (ive blown it out and everything, put it down to a driver
I took my 2.5inch SATA HDD out and i had a spare 3.5 inch drive, as per the photo. Put it in but it is not detected . The 2.5inch drive runs at both 12v @ 0.35a and 5v @ 0.72a
The 2.5inch drive runs @ 5v 700ma (0.7a) so i don't see a problem here
I have tried to see if the disk is active in diskpart with no luck, and this drive works on desktop so i know its not a faulty drive
Im a little broke at the mo (studying cisco CCNA
) so would appreciate any help!!
Thanks for your time!!
EDIT: sorry about the pic, im using my phone at the moment
