One of the main elements of any computer or laptop is the hard drive. If the motherboard and RAM are the brain of the computer, the hard disk is the body. And as our bodies according to what activity you are going to practice you need to develop a series of muscles.

Just as a weightlifter is not the same as a marathon runner. Each type of hard drives complement your machine better or worse.

It depends on what you are looking for, speed or storage capacity, short latency or longer period of life, higher cost or lower cost etc.

Before deciding on a hard disk HDD or an SSD hard disk, it is best to consult a service expert technician in laptops and spare parts. For users, who need a work tool is necessary, that this has a good combination of speed and memory. 

However, if you want to transform an old-fashioned laptop into a decent machine, you have to analyze the components it has, to find the hard drive that will provide that extra performance.

What are the most usedtypes of hard drives?

The two most commonly used hard drives are HDDs and SSDs. 

The HDD hard drive has been on the market for many years and consists of several dishes that rotate on an axis and the information is recorded and reproduced through two needles or heads, one for reading and one for writing.

The hard disk HDD is still the most used and which usually comes from the factory with almost any computer or laptop. The reason is that they are discs with large storage capacity (500 Gb, 1Tb or 2 Tb) with a very affordable cost.

This means that if you have a more or less recent equipment. That is, of 4 years or less and that has at least 4 Mb of RAM and an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 chip you have enough computing power and speed to do any task without problems.

On the other hand if you have a laptop over 4 years old and with slower chips such as an Intel Celeron, you need to quickly equip your machine to get it out of obsolescence. 

For this purpose SSD hard drives are the best solution. Because they are really chips with flash memory with another chip that serves to sort, record and retrieve information. As everything is digital in Solid State Drive disks, speed is the greatest of its advantages. The disadvantages for its part is its scarcity if you need to store more than 500 Gb of information and on the other hand every time we write on a SSD a corruption of the memory cells occurs.

This is the reason why an HDD lasts longer than an SSD.

Should I change my HDD for an SSD?

An excellent technical service is the best guide to know what type of hard disk suits you the most. No two users are the same, each person uses their computer or laptop in very different ways.

You may want to work with common programs such as Office or you need to edit video in 4K. Maybe you want to store many movies or to enjoy video games like Overwatch or League of Legends.

Definitely if your laptop is old and slow an SSD is the solution to get a few more years of life without investing a large amount of money. Going from waiting 2 or 3 minutes to load the operating system to about 40 seconds will confirm that it is money well spent.

How to choose the best drive for your laptop?

The question of which hard drive is optimal for your computer is always in the head of all users. First when choosing a model and then when changing it.

The hard disk HDD was the pioneer

Hard drives have been in the hearts of computers for more than 60 years. When IBM started producing the first hard drives, they established a series of parameters based on magnetism and the ability to store information, which are still valid today.

IBM engineers coated a metal disk with magnetic material, this was formatted in tracks and sectors and a magnetic head encoded the binary information in it. It is practically what we will find in a 1 Terabyte HDD.

But it was not until the 1990s that they began to apply the principles of giant magnetoresistance. With this, the surface of the hard disk increased the capacity to store more data thanks to the compaction.

On the other hand, the reading heads could be produced with more sensitivity to search the data more quickly.

At this time if we open a hard drive type HDD what we will find is several aluminum or glass discs in numbers of 2-4 or even 6 placed one on top of the other on the same axis. The more disks in our disk drive, the more memory capacity will have our HDD.

Each disc (known technically as plates) corresponds to a reader, which has two heads. These heads levitate a few microns above the plates and thanks to electromagnetism they record and recover the information in the tracks and sectors of the discs.

To achieve magnetization the discs rotate at 7200 revolutions per minute and if the heads, by accident, touch the surface of a disc they scratch it irreparably. Therefore, HDD hard drives should not suffer sudden or trepidatory movements.

The hard disk HDATA SATA was the total protagonist in the 90s and the first decade of S XXI when, thanks to the technologies employed, it was able to expand the storage memory of computers and laptops in a surprising way.

However, since 2010 the HDD has been losing prominence and the SSD hard drive has been gaining, as they use flash memory with NAND, so they retain information without the need for electricity.

Then came the SSD and revolutionized the market.

Since 1995 SSD hard drives (by Solid State Drive) have been present in the market. The technology of the SSD is very different from the HDD. In the SSD disks there are no moving parts, neither does movement occur nor is there a mechanism that looks for information such as the spindle in the HDD.

SSDs are purely a base of microchips with a processor, which orders information. In them the digitization is total and the storage process is different. SSDs are more similar to large USB memories.

Because of their own architecture, they are much faster than HDD discs since there are no mechanical processes that slow down the process of writing new information or the search process.

At the beginning of the decade SSDs were expensive and had a very limited storage capacity, usually 60 or 120 Gb. However, at present you can find SSD 250 Gb at very affordable prices.

Even 500 Gb SSD drives are cheap today. And of course for the users, who need a lot of memory are the 1 or 2 Gb disks.

How to choose the best hard drive? What do I need speed or memory?
This question is key when choosing a hard drive. If we look for speed we have to go with the SSD, since its microchips are faster and there is less latency.

If we want to store data, the HDD is our thing. Its cost measured in Gb units is much cheaper than the SSD. Also, despite being a mechanic, it is a more enduring unit.

Dell Benalmadena will transform your laptop

In this case, the Dell Málaga technical service faced a new challenge. The client needed to change the motherboard of his DELL XPS P54G, the laptop had all the components in perfect condition but the motherboard stopped working from one day to the next.

This has been common in many Dell XPS for several, but if you have a Dell SAT service as Lcd Laptops, you will not have to throw your computer in the trash.

Dell Benalmádena accelerates110% your laptop

With the Dell Benalmádena SAT it is very easy to have your Dell notebook as new again. The technical experts in computer repair of Torremolinos had to use all their skills and patience to put this Dell to work again.

For this they started by opening the back, unscrewing the 8 screws and the bolt that comes under the plate with the XPS logo.

We continue removing the casing, to expose the memory SSD, the battery, the motherboard and the wifi antenna among other things.

To remove the battery, disconnect it from the motherboard. Then we proceed to unplug the touchpad and remove it. To remove the SSD you have to remove a small screw and we can remove it from its slot type M.2.

Changing the plate to this type of Dell is really laborious and you have to pay close attention to detail. Therefore, if you need professionals to fix Dell computers in Malaga. Lcd Laptops is your best option.

To remove the wifi card, we have to remove the screw and then we will remove the two connected cables. Little by little the mother card begins to see in all its extension.

Put your Dell like a rocket with a motherboard change

With all the motherboard in sight (processors, fans, graphics card etc) we can start to unscrew. This type of motherboard for DELL XPS has several flex cable contacts that we have to unplug.

We remove the flexes of the speakers, the LCD screen, the fan, and the touchpad. In this way we can remove the motherboard and change it.

Something quite curious on this motherboard is that the back of the RAM chips are already inserted. This is the reason why a motherboard for Dell has a price a little higher than other manufacturers, because it brings 4Gb or 8Gb of Ram soldered to it.

We take the fan and the cooling piece (4 screws) take advantage to clean them, we review the new motherboard with a little paste to better dissipate the heat and replace the heatsink and fan.


We fit the corresponding flexes on the motherboard and continue with the Wi-Fi, then rearrange the SSD disk,
