|Alright, so my father had a Dell Latitude C640 with Windows XP Prof. and he dropped it a year or two ago. It ended up sluggish and ultimately crashed. A little while back I salvaged a Mac HD from a iBook with a bad CPU. I put that in the Latitude and BIOS reads it as 30007 Megabytes, and I put in the XP Prof. with Service Pack 3, and in minutes reached 2%, and stopped. The drive spins and makes reading sounds, but also some sounds like a watch spring. It has been, as of this post, about half an hour. I am formatting the internal drive. Also, is there a way of opting out to check if the drive crashed?|
It is a 30GB drive, I'm not sure of the make.
