    found some drives on ebay and online stores but I have no idea how to
    find out which drive will fit my laptop. Anybody knows ho to check it

  2. It's not easy. What's the current drive in your laptop? Most of these
    drives are electrically interchangeable, but there are a bunch of
    issues, one of the biggest being the front plastic bezel, it's
    model-specific and not universally interchangeable. The same is true
    for mounting brackets and connector adaptes used on SOME laptops to
    mount the drives. The odds are against completing this successfully
    unless you are a pretty good technician and have access to parts.
