Dell Studio XPS 7100 Internal Hard Drive needs Help :-(

Dear Dell Friends,

So, I turned off my PC for 3 days because we went away.

When I finally turned my PC on, I can hear this motor seems like it's working too hard.

Then I saw a message & was given a choice to maybe fixing my PC by going back to factory settings.

My heart sunk because most of my Datas, I don't think they where all saved on an external hard drive.

I immediately, turn my PC off.

Was able to restart it normally even though I know any minute now that my PC will just arrest & might need CPR.

I am as we speak, transferring all my datas on an external hard drive.

My question is:

I was looking for a replacement for my hard drive, I went search at Dell's site, there are not better than what I got.

Any suggestions on what I can buy for my XPS 7100?

Thanks for your help.

The Dell XPS 7100 supports any SATA internal, 3.5", 7200rpm, up to 2TB in size.

Check out the Western Digital and Seagate brands of HDs, also try to buy a hard drive, with a three year manufacturer's warranty.   Warranties can be from one to five years.
