This is the type of hard drive I have: WD Elements 2TB
It's for desktop computers it says. However, I've used it for both my old Gateway laptop and Acer laptop computers. Both have died. The Gateway laptop stopped taking battery charges and caused the laptop to die. I took it to Best Buy and they said either the DC dock was broken or the motherboard went bad. I'm not saying my external hard drive had a role in the deaths of these two innocent pieces of machinery, but I'm just asking: Could it have possibly played a part in the later malfunctioning of these computers?
EDIT: I spelled "compatible" wrong.
