|Hello. I need your help. |
I have laptop HP 1253-cl (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01754896&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3966278).
I have problem with HDD's. I had WD Scorpio Blue 500 GB and it stopped working. But, what is maybe problem, before it stopped to work i had problem with ac adapter.
It was damaged but it worked and soon my laptop was slower and slower because of hdd and after buying new ac adapter, laptop worked but again slower and slower.
In recent time i've changed hdd and took it from some used laptop and after using it some time it is showing same symptoms like my first HDD. What i'm guessing is, new ac adapter is not 4.74 amperes like old one, new ac adapter is 3.5 amperes, but is it 19V like old one.
What i would like to know, is it possible that ac adapter with less amperes can damage HDD ? First and main symptom is slower laptop. I'm planning to buy fresh new HDD but how good idea is to use new hdd with old ac adapter?
And, when i pull out battery there are taped informations and there i see: first line: 18.5V 3.5 ampers second line: 19V 4.74 ampers.
p.s. it should not be related to Windows, i do install every time, and on new (used) hdd..
Please ask if you need more information.
