Hi, this is my first post on Bleeping Computer. I have come here numerous times to read posts, but now I need help. My Fujitsu N3010 (N series of laptops) 2.5 inch hard drive passed away, so I need to get a replacement. Actually, I will be giving the computer to someone that needs it, so I need a low capacity/price drive.

Here is the Fujitsu site page with the computer specs, but you will need to use the drop down buttons to enter in "Notebook PC", "N series" and "N3010" respectively: http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/sup...?srch=TECHSPECS

Or, here are the original hard drive specs: Smart 2.5 inch, 9.5 mm ultra DMA 100 hard drive 60 GB (5400 RPM)

Will this work as a replacement? Seagate ST94011A 40GB UDMA/100 5400RPM 2MB 2.5" NB HDD

Will any 2.5 inch hard drive work? Does it have to be UDMA? Can someone please give me the generic description of what I will need, just in case the Seagate isn't available?
Thanks, Bill J.

Hi Bill, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

That hdd should be fine, Seagate is one of several good manufacturers, you won't go wrong there.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I noticed it was out of stock. Any 2.5 IDE drive will work. Here's a few

Thank you for the great help. Once I get the HDD installed and the original operating system reinstalled, I'll give this laptop to needy community college student in the area.
I have begun to collect malfunctioning computers with the aim to repair them and then give them away to people that need them. Next, I will start giving desktops to nursing homes so the residents can E-mail, surf the Internet etc. I just can't stand the thought of tossing them in the trash, when some people can't afford even a bare bones system.
Wish me luck! -Bill J.
