    yeah im only upgrading.. because i don't have the money to buy a new one.. btw i looked into the link of the hard drive and it might be the one i want..

    also i have a "Compaq Presario CP700" series and i don't know if that kind of hard drive would fit into my laptop:S..

    Since you are upgrading a laptop, RAM and the HDD is really the only things you can do, with the exception of the CPU in some. It really isn't possible to change out the graphics "card" per say in a mobile machine.

    the only thing you can upgrade in a laptop (usually) at all are:
    1.) RAM
    2.)hard drive
    3.) wireless card, and thats lucky if you can
