I can't find a hard drive to match my compute

June 19, 2011 at 13:32:11
Specs: Windows 7
we click on the updates for the computer, now the screen is black and won't do nothing. I believe the hard drive is gone. It won't let me run the back up disc. I've looked all over but I can't find a new hard drive that matches my computer. Its a Emachine, I've only had it about two years. bought it at best buy.

You don't need an exact match for your existing harddrive, you just need to make sure it;'s the same format - 3.5" and (judging by the age) SATA connected.
However I would suspect other things before your harddrive because if that had failed you would still get an error message on the screen. A far more likely failure is the power supply, especially as it's an e-machine - take it to a tech to get it tested.
