My Vaio 500gb 5400 rpm drive had starting giving me 'no operating system' errors, and a smart disk check tagged drive failure=true and drivedirty-true.
Therefore I am going to change it. Out of warranty, so I was thinking of fitting a:
Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid SATA-II 2.5" 7200RPM 32MB hard drive
Any potential issues? Bios should be able to configure the slightly larger drive - hopefully.
I have read that people were having issues with either a faster drive, or more importantly... that the Sony recovery discs won't work because the drive is a different size.
Any advice greatly received.
