Zenskas Posted December 28, 2009 Author Share Posted December 28, 2009 Seagate 7200.11 S/N 5qkomphm, st3750630as, p/n 9bx146-621, hp24, date code 09124, site code wu, wwn:5000c5000e8c733d. wgbu: 460315-002, ct:2ahzh0183wk3gv. Same symptoms as described- slower startups, started freezing all within 3 days of final bricking. Talked to hp support and said it was an obvious hard drive failure and that I needed a new one. No mention of seagate problems. Found this site and many others all describing exactly what happened to me. What a sham! HP said I needed to replace with identical same hard drive from seagate-seems stupid to do so. Can I substitute?Yes and I recommend a Western Digital or Samsung HDD, I have one of both and they are flawless. Quiet, and have no well known problems (at least with any of the drives you can buy today from them). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
