Well, it's happened, my hdd looks like it's about to go out on me...I got the message, "WARNING: DELLS DISK MONITORING SYSTEM HAS DETECTED THAT DRIVE 0 ON THE PRIMARY EIDE CONTROLLER IS OPERATIONG OUTSIDE OF NORMAL SPECIFICATIONS. IT IS ADVISABLE TO IMMEDIATELY BACKUP YOUR DATA AND REPLACE YOUR HARD DISK DRIVE BY CALLING YOUR SUPPORT DESK OR DELL COMPUTER CORPORATION. STRIKE F1 KEY TO CONTIUNUE, F2 TO RUN THE SETUP UTILITY." Now, Dell will be sending someone to replace my hard drive, it urges me to purchase an additional hard drive, to store critical data on, in the (hopefully unlikely) case that this happens again. So...does anyone have any suggestions as to a good brand/type of hdd for me to purchase? The current one is a Maxtor 7200rpm ata/100. So I'm assuming I'd have to stick with ata/100? Or could I use an ata/133? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
