Well my hard drive finally gave up this morning. I got the same message that i did when the old one stopped working, and the same thing happened when i tried to use startup repair. Looks like I'm going to have to get a new one. Do you know any good companies that do 7,200 rpm drives in Adelaide?

I bet there's a good online computer store in Australia.

My laptop's hard drive has died before, and my optical drive went a few weeks ago, so i have a feeling my laptop is generally dying. I think i might as well get a new one instead of wasting money replacing all the parts.

Heat will always kill parts faster. So if your laptop has a heat problem that would explain it :wink:
