You can buy the same brand of hard disk. It will be wise, however, to make sure that your hard drive is no longer working.

CANT RESTORE MY COMPUTER


It is asking for the recovery discs that should have been made in the event there was a problem with the recovery sector on drive D or the hard drive failed. The only option is go to www.hp.com contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can sell you the much needed discs.

Hitachi 0A59577 320 gb disk drives reporting high pending and reallocated sectors causes system to crash.Vibration 10-200mz


> high pending and reallocated sectors

The electronics inside the disk-drive is encountering "bad" spots on the surface of the disk-drive, and is attempting to allocate some of the "spare" parts of the disk-drive as substitutes for the "bad" parts.

But, it is running-out of "spare" areas to deploy.

What this means is that YOUR DISK-DRIVE IS ABOUT TO FAIL.
Buy an external disk-drive, or buy a bunch of CD-writable or DVD-writable disks, and make a BACKUP copy of your files (E-mail, music),
while you still can access your current disk-drive.

Then, buy a new "internal" hard-drive, and reinstall Windows (you *DO* have the "System Restore" disks, correct?) onto the new disk-drive, and restore your files from your backup.

If your current disk-drive is still under manufacturer's warranty, then exercise the warranty, to get a free replacement. But, make sure that you have copied all your data from the disk-drive *BEFORE* you send it to the manufacturer, because they will take *NO* responsibility for trying to "recover" any of your files.

Want to install new WD hard drive into my old computer


You say you see data on disks on your existing system, yet they appear blank when trying to install? Please try to dig a little deeper and find your setup file. Data wouldn't disappear unless your running NTFS now and the disks are FAT.

Error reading hard disk


Here is a Microsoft solution:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315265
To enter DOS mode, restart the computer and tap F8 (may be different on yours) that brings you to Safe Mode Options. You want to select command prompt and follow the above Microsoft instructions. Its a good idea to print it out. If none of this works, the hard drive needs repair by service people.
