My hard drive in my toshiba satellite laptop has stopped working. How can I tell if my toshiba satellite laptop can work with an OCZ Technology Agility 3 120GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) with SandForce 2281 Controller??

do I need a PCI to SATA adapter of some sort?
Hi, thank you for using JustAnswer.com. I am glad to assist you today.

What is the exact model of your laptop? I need to know this information so that I can check the compatible hard disk drives that are fully supported by your motherboard.

Also, did you already buy and try to use the said Hard Disk drive to the laptop? If so, what happened, did it detect it or not at all?

I have not yet purchased the ssd drive
Thank you for that information.

The Answer to your question is NO. The disk drive that you want is a SATA drive and your motherboard only supports EIDE or Enhanced IDE Drive.

Please look for laptop hard drives with an interface of EIDE so that it will fit with your hard drive slot in the laptop itself.
