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 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.
