Hitachi 80GB 2.5inch Internal Hard Disk Drive – Support Forum

Travelstar HTS42402040M9AT00 [Hitachi 80GB 2.5inch Internal Hard Disk Drive - 114655]

Have bought the above but it causes my Thinkpad 365X to hang. What do I need to do get it sorted. The thinkpad without the HDD works fine but with the new HDD the system seems to fail.

I think that the problem is caused that the hard drive is too large and the laptop cannot cope with a drive that large and it is causing it to crash. Check for a bios update that may allow the use of larger hard drives and see if this helps. -- Michael - eXpansys
