    yup bad Hard Drive, while your at it throw in a SSD, well worth it. Make the computer like a brand new one.

    I agree that you need a hard drive, but I'm not completely sold on SSD yet. They're very expensive given the storage capacity and there are still quality issues.

    Once they're closer to $1 per gigabyte, I'll be interested.
    The $300 i spent for a 8x10x12 CD burner is a constant reminder to me that things always get cheaper.

    But if the SSD will meet your needs and is in your budget, then it's a great option.

    Whatever you decide, make sure you make regular backups!!!
