Your best bet on purchasing a hard drive is at pricewatch.com, most places will charge you almost double what you can get one there for. Buy the hard drive first, then, if you don't feel confident in changing it out and reinstalling the operating system yourself, take it to a small computer shop in your area. They will charge you a reasonable price for installation. Don't take it to Bestbuy, the Geek Squad is outrageous on their prices, plus they'll try to sell you more "stuff" you really don't need.

Hi i bought WD 320 gb sata /8mb hard drive - the cable ribbon on my dell 4600 does not plug into it! do i need a different cable yes


Hi,
Generally speaking, we have two types of hard disk interface. IDE (the old one with ribbon cable) and SATA (with a 1cm strip like cable).
As your new hard disk is SATA, you need a SATA cable to connect it to you PC.
Below are a few images which would help you.

Hi, I have an error message on my notebook laptop reading: 'windows detected a hard drive problem (repair or replace disk). Disk Failure Name: ST98823AS ATA, Device Volume C:\. How do I go about repairing...


Leila, repairing a hard drive or replavcing it in a laptop is difficult due the the number of screws and bits and pices one has to remove to get to it. I suggest you take it to a computer specialist that deals with the brand of laptop near you New disk varies depending on size but average about$160.00 and min 2 hrs labor @ $90 and hour. The decision is is it cheaper to upgrade than repair?
