hard drive replacement  
I've got an older Dell Laptop. The hard drive has been failing for a while. I've reformatted it and it worked for a while, but the other day, I reformatted and it did not even make it to the second reboot in windows installation.

So, I finally broke down and ordered a new hard drive from Newegg.com. It came today. 80 GB in place of the 56 GB that was there. I was shocked at how light the hard drive is.

I thought a silly, stripped philips screw was going to stop me, but I got it out with pli-*--*ers! :-)

The hard drive is formatted and Windows is copying files. If this works, Pam will be using it in the kitchen to watch Internet TV.

Hey Gary, I think I remember when you got the laptop..... WOW..... that's been a while now too. I sure hope the new harddrive works for you.

I would love to have a laptop, but I guess it will have to wait a while yet. I hear the new version of Windows isn't very good, kind of like the millinem version so I'm waiting for a new and better version to come out.

It's great to see you my friend :)

hey Audis
Thanks Audis! I'm trying to get the drivers all loaded back on the laptop now. So far, so good.:-)
