Hi I have a hdd in a compaq n110 laptop that is faulty, looking at the
hp parts site it describes the part as "with drivelock" not that we
have ever used this "feature" and don't want to either.

Can I just purchase a bog standard new hard drive from a retailer such
as a Hitachi Travelstar (the original one is a IBM Travelstar with the
requisit $150 dollar premium "replace with compaq part XYZ" label
affixed to it.)

Many thanks
