    Before I put on the map software the computer recognized the Garmin etrexH. Afterwards there was a request for updating the driver and from that point it has not worked. Garmin downloads are designed for usb first and serial second.
    The origional download works fine on my desktop with NO requests to update

Check your bios (setup as you boot up) and make sure the serial port is not off.

Dell Studio XPS will have the high end gaming capability you want, and a fairly reasonable price.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.
