    Default Hard Drive Died!!!!

    Well... My hard drive decided to go and turn itself into a brick last night Does anyone know or have any suggestions for good HDDs or SSD's? I dont have a lot of money right now. I need a replacement really badly right now. That was my main HDD and now I am being forced to run off Win 7 32... We all know how much fun windows 7 32 bit is... If anyone has any suggestions or has an old HDD/SSD laying around which they would be willing to sell me, I would be very thankful.

    Stuff like this always happens RIGHT when you are in the middle of something important doesnt it

    I've learned over time to keep the Lappy simple and not stuff it full of files. I have a 1TB external drive that holdS all of the extra, so a 120GB SATA-II SSD makes it work better than it ever did with the 120GB HDD that it came with.

    An external USB-3.0 drive would be perfect with it if the Lappy has the capability. Mine doesn't but my drive is USB-3.0,....................
    I'm lucky that it's backwards compatible.
