    I thought it would be straight forward but i dont want to buy the wrong thing.

    I have taken the faulty seagate ST94019A 2.5" hd out of the laptop, looked on ebuyer and found a couple that seem compatible but some say ATA-100 and some say IDE.

    Im not sure if there different or the same, and also not sure about physical size.

    Can anyone advise please?

    Thanx
    Paul

    Based on the model number you provided (seagate ST94019A), this is a 40Gig ATA drive.

    Match the replacement interface to be ATA aswell and perhaps consider a larger capacity while you're at it - good time to move up in capacity since you'll have to install the Operating System (i take it it's windows)
