    It's pretty easy. Just download the work manual from Dell. Worth it.

    I have a L702x that's about 6 years old I suppose (I got it used) - how long can I expect the original "hybrid" hard drive to last? It's the 750GB model.

    I installed the second HD and cloned it in case the original fails but was wondering if I should replace it with SSD as a failure could be overdue.

    The drive in question is:

    Seagate Momentus XT ST750LX003 Hybrid 750GB

    Depending on the brand, physical hard-disk drives can last a long time but SSD has a faster boot up time due to their non-mechanical component. Like all items based on brand and the quality put in to it, they can also fail just as easily or can completely wipe out data if there's a glitch, probably with a lesser percentage chance compared to physical hdd.

    Mine has held up well and is also 7 years old. I have two 500GB Seagate 7200rpm HDD for a total of 1TB storage. Not crazy about the make and haven't thought of replacing them but if I do I'd go with a Crucial-branded SSD.

    I installed CrystalDisk software, it revealed I have 15,300 hours on the hybrid 750GB drive. Looks like I have about 5000 hours on it until failure, statistically.

    How do you determine the resolution of Dell L702x?

    It came in 2 flavors, the HD 1920x1080 and the lower resolution.

    How do tell you assuming the machine in question is down with no HD and no ability to boot.

    Keyboard problems: Sometimes when I boot, the keyboard is completely dead. No response. I have to power off completely, by holding the power button and then reboot.

    This happens randomly and at about 5-7% of all boots.

    I replaced the keyboard to no avail.
