hi,I just installed a new hard drive in my lappy yesterday after my old one started failing.
I purchased a re-certified seagate mini pipeline 250gb 5400rpm....I was advised against purchasing a recertified drive but decided to chance it.
I downloaded speccy to see my lappy temps last night after spending all day installing win 7 and have it on just now.
my laptop has only been on for an hour or so and my current hd temp is : 49c whereas last night after it was on for well over 4 hours it was 55c
what is considered a safe temp for a hd and what is over the top?
currently my cpu is at 57c but I have seen it upto around 80c...again what is safe and too high?
my mobo is currently at 25c again what kind of temps should a mobo sit at?
my laptop is a dell latitude e5420 with i5 2520m.
Also how likely is my recertified hd likely to fail and how can I check to see if a hd is failing,how will I know?
