Where to go for wintel advice?

Sorry for posting this here in a mac users forum, but I'm not a PC user and don't know which sites are reputable.

Basically, my wife has a Toshiba laptop bought in Japan which died (after 18 mo.) in March. To get it repaired it has to be sent to California to a specialist repair shop (because Japanese parts are different from those in the US). All of this will end up costing $$$ just for a diagnosis. I was messing around with it today and I suspect that it is just a HD failure (death). However, I don't want to buy a new HD unless someone can give me other good reasons to believe that is the problem. So, does anyone here know a good site/ message board on which I can post a query for this kind of thing?

Anyway, good has come of this. My buddy gave my wife his old imac DV and, while it's slower than molasses with 10.2 on it, she loves OSX and doesn't want to return to windoze. Problem is that this is a $2,500 laptop, so we need it repaired.
