    Yes, as that reads, on PC startup this morning I got a message about imminent hard drive failure. So I need money NOW to buy somehting, either a used computer or external HDD, or whatever...

    so I have to sell things I wanted to keep, as no one is buying any of my non-TF goods. I probably don't have much time before the thing dies. I've had the message twice in a row now. Not good. Fast payment by money order(NO PAYPAL!) is required. I am not taking trades right now.

    you can find items below and in my other thread(see sig link). As in the other thread, I deal only with US and Canadian buyers.


    Note that, in the event my HDD does fail and this computer is unusable, I can still access through my cousin's computer(he's in walking distance) or at the library. Though in that case my replies may be slower. I may also look into spending the $5 on the Wii's browser if necessary for quicker board access. I am currently in the middle of data backups onto blank CDs(EDIT: blank CDs are used up, all important backups are made). At least I don't have a whole hell of a lot of stuff to really back up, as games and such can be reinstalled.

    Maybe a stupid question, but why are you looking for a replacement PC? Why not just replace the hard drive? Hook it up, partition, make an image of the current one, remove bad drive and unpack image.

    It's an old PC(4 years+) and I'm also starting to show hardware problems. Plus XP is so goofed I'd need to reinstall it to fix the problems I have now(windows search doesn't even work for some unknown reason!). Plus it's a crappy out-of-the-box PC and most of the hardware is outdated.

    It doesn't matter your PC is old. New HDDs will work on your machine. It would have been lame to change the whole comp because you want a bigger HDD, we still haven't got there. Your best bet is to buy a new HDD. You can do a backup of your OS, programs and data and transfer it to a new HDD. A lot cheaper than getting a new machine. Of course, this aplies only if you're not looking for an excuse to get a new PC.

    My DVD-ROM died and I've had 1 USB port die so far. I was going to get a new PC anyway, but this forced my need to get one now instead of later. The onboard video card is becoming insufficient to run programs, and it's slow as can be even after numerous virus scans(clean) and registry cleanups.

    I'm really not after new as I want a Windows XP machine. Much of what I have may not run under Vista. I mainly use the computer for internet and gaming.

    Besides, I found a used rig on Craigslist for $100, complete package. This may be a cheaper option.

    I have a computer purchase ready, but I'll need the $100 in hand to get it first. I have about $87 on its way to me so only a bit more and I shoudld be good. Looks like i can keep a good deal of my stuff after all.
