sir ;
i have compaq nx6120 almost 5yrs. old model;

HDD creating problems for me;it gives a read error when HDD self test is run in BIOS.
i m planning to buy an internal hdd cuz the built in drive is less than 40 GB;

since its an old laptop will it be suitable to buy an internal HDD for it or shall i go for external HDD for large storage;
i m concerned cuz buying new internal storage might create troubles or not work in compatibility with the system;

RAM problems may also occur with old systems;



plz suggest what shall i do;

You can test the HDD using the drive manufacturers disk tools. The tools are available from the HDD manufacturers webpage. If the HDD is the main boot drive, then you will need to replace it with another internal drive.
