compatible Hard Drive for replacement

I have a P580 Laptop (ideapad) - Machine Type 3087 (308725U) . Its 3  year old and is out of warranty. The Hard drive is reporting bad sectors, and there is a notification to replace the hard drive on this laptop. The Current hard drive size is 750 GB ,5400 rpm, model ST750LM022. Can i install a new hardrive of a larger capacity like 2 TB either of 7200 rpm, when i replace it? Will it support a SSD?

Re: compatible Hard Drive for replacement

I assume if you are running win7, you have SP1 installed.  You need a 2.5" drive that is 9.5mm thick.  Some of the bigger drives are thicker.  An SSD is OK also.
