My Toshiba satellite recently crashed and I attempted to run the recovery wizard and reinstalling windows with the setup disc that came with it. Several attempts later, some briefly successful before crashing again and now I'm pretty sure the hard drive is a goner... It's a seagate momentus 5400.6 500gb. I want to get a new hard drive to try again. Can I replace it with a momentus 120gb? Does it matter. Pretty sure its the same thing just smaller capacity right? Or wrong? I'm just trying to spend 30$ instead of 100$ just wanted to make sure. Additionally would any SATA drive work? Is that all I need to worry about here?
