Question

[color=#000000][font=HPRegular, arial, sans-serif]
I have a Presario CQ62-306AU notebook with a damaged hard drive that still works after a fashion in safe mode. It currently has a 320 GB 5200 SATA HD that I wish to replace with a 750 GB 7200 drive.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=HPRegular, arial, sans-serif]
The repair manual says it will support a 750 GB 5200 HD, but also that the only 320 GB HD it supports is a 7200 whereas my current HD is a 5200. A bit confusing.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=HPRegular, arial, sans-serif]
Does anybody have any idea if it will support my preferred option of 750 GB 7200 drive?[/font][/color]

Sounds like nonsense to me. The RPM of the drive should be irrelevant.
The manual was last updated almost 2 years ago and probably just reflects the HDDs that were available at the time.

If you could live with less storage a 240 to 256 gig ssd would be the way to go (their coming down in price quite fast) if your system could run them. I put an SSD in a six year old HP laptop, and now it runs really great. Just a thought. :)
