hey guys,
i am asking a question. i have got a fujitsu siemens amilo Li 2735 notebook. my hard drive is malfunctioning so i am planning to buy a new one.

My question is: is it safe to use other manufactured hard drives on my laptop?

Thanx

Yes, perfectly safe. Just remember to check whether the drive in it atm is SATA, IDE or ZIF and buy the appropiate one. You could also buy a 2.5" enclosure so you would be able to transfer pics/music/whatever over USB from your old drive.

You will have to reinstall windows unfortunately but if the drives dying then it'd be a good idea anyways since there's a high chance that system files may be corrupt or unreadable (depending on how far the drive has degraded).
