1 GB Memory
250 GB Hard Disc
Bought it just over a year ago (figures, the 1yr warranty just ran out lol)
Only problem is, it came with windows Vista (boooo!) so we scrubbed and put XP on it when we first got it....
If I was going to buy a new Harddrive anyway, what do I have to look for for compatibility?
There is a memory express store nearby with the following:
SEAGATE 500GB Barracuda 7200.11 SATA II w/ NCQ, 32MB Cache
SKU: MX19181 Part#: ST3500320AS 4/5 41 Review(s) $74.99
is that any good?
Could I install that one, slave it, recover my old files, then just use it for storage? Or is it toast?
I'm curious if there is something physically wrong with the hard drive?? or did a virus cause all this? (if a virus caused it, then if i recover my files won't I be back to square 1 again?)
