Ok, now that you read all your manuals and are totally confused about what drive to purchase let's look at things differently.
Hard Drives for Laptops are typically one of two styles.
To make this simple, it's either wrong or right. (Mounting)
If you don't order directly from HP you need to remove the hard drive and write the Model / Part number down.
That part or model number will make the difference between working and wasting your time.
Search Best Buy and other online shops for the model number.
Once you found it you found your replacement drive.
Never purchase hardware by it's Name, Title or Discription. NEVER!
Always look at Model Numbers which will be in the specification sheet. If it's not listed make sure you ask a tech to find out for you.
It pays in the long run to do things right the first time. Trust me, paying a tech to "REDO" things costs more in the long run.
