I trust you have kept backed up - it's not on to repair a failed HD.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Amazon.com, NewEgg.com, are two sources that come two mind. BestBuy likewise... I'd be more inclined to Amazon or NewEgg personally.

OK that looks to be a SATA-1 drive. S.M.A.R.T described it as 'primary master' which usually would indicate an ATA drive. You might want to go by the drive model number to make sure but any drive with the same interface and capacity would work. You wouldn't have to replace it with the same model. You might check ebay too.

Laptop specs can be found here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Manual can be found here: http://www.asus.com/us/supportonly/...

Switching to a SSD is a possibility. You can get a 250GB SSD for under $100. Or you can get a 1TB standard HDD for about $50-60. No point in getting a smaller HDD as they are roughly the same price.
