Well, looks like the hard drive in my IBM thinkpad finally died. Any suggestions on getting a good replacement? I've always started at pricewatch for parts, but the listings there make me leary. Lots of refurbs and what seem to be used drives. Places to avoid? Good notebook HD brands? Anything special I need to know about IBM drives? And of course, I don't have the recovery disk. It actually didn't come with one, because this was an as is purchase. That means when I get a new drive, I won't have an OS to put on it, and I won't have all the special IBM software and drivers to run the hardware that is on the notebook. On the bottom of the comp is a product key for the install of XP I had. Is there somewhere I can download an XP pro install and register it with my serial/product key? Any other help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
