Seagate has been the master of Hard Drives for along time. Most of the other manufacturers have sold out to other companies.

For the past four years an 80Gig (Gigabyte) hard drive was the norm, but in 2008 that changed and the price of a 180Gig or 250Gig drive is less than double the cost of a 80Gig drive.

Terrabyte drives will be the norm in three years, they're already selling in the Server industry as the norm.

How much to replace a hard drive . i only paid £150 second hand for my laptop. Is it wortb paying to have it repaired

hard drives are around $40.00 aud and a replacement ( better option ) is a solid state (SSHD) hard drive
no discs no wearing parts and bigger capacity
for example a 120 gb sshd will handle what a 250 gb disc drive and will handle at a very much faster speed
I got a KINGSTON brand 120 gb sshd of the net for $90.00 aud
if you add and extra or bigger ram card to increase ram memory you will have a laptop equal to a new unit for around $750.00 aud
best advice --go talk with a reputable computer repair shop ( they sell all the bits ) and discuss repair against replacement with a new unit , then decide it you just want a serviceable lap top or a really big costly game machine
it all depends on what you want as an end result

Hard drive replacement

SATA drives are the latest hard drives available nowadays. You could try going online and checking other sites that could still have an IDE hard available for sale.

You cannot recover bad sectors. Your disc is damaged and the drive has removed the bad sectors from being writable. You need to replace your hard drive asap before it breaks entirely. You're going to lose all your remaining data on the disc if you do not back it up immediately. Good luck, Peter
