Hi Machinegun Kelly.

Thanks for the reply.
Sorry for the multiple postings on different forums as I am desperate.

I have formatted my laptop. Did a reinstall. Everything is up and running again.

I got a Dell laptop and I have done a diagnosis using the 32bit Dell Diagnosis Utility tool that comes with my laptop. It seems that my SATA has many bad sectors.

I am thinking of replacing it as I got a feeling the SATA is dying soon. So can I just get any HDD and fix it into my laptop or do I need to make sure the HDD works with my motherboard, etc?

Any pointers in finding a HDD that works?
If you need any information about my laptop do let me know.
