    Hello, my current hard drive is failing. Ran chckdsk has bad sectors, fixed and keep getting errors, running slow etc. I am able to get it to work for a while but then it goes bad and slows again, chkdks is unable to repair most of the bad sectors.

    So I am looking for a new hard drive. Something that would be an upgrade but not too expensive.

    Current storage is 500gb I would be looking at 1tb or bigger.

    I am not too familiar with what is good and what is not.

    Thanks for the help.


    Product Name: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
    Product Number: PJ123PA#ABA
    Memory 6GB
    Windows 7 Home Premium
    64BIT OS
    Intel Core i7 Q720 1.60GHz 1.60GHz

    I would get a SSD drive they're much faster.

    unless you have 2 hard drive bays then stay with the regular mechanical drive not the ssd drive.
