If they're going to charge for the HD and the labor, what does the warranty cover?
Good thing I got those backups cause when I came home from school today, I couldn't get anything to work! The only thnig I could do was install Windows XP Pro, however my computer keeps randomly turning off. I did what I learned a long time ago to fix that on laptops, which is you turn off the laptop, pull out the battery, and unplug the power, and hold down on the power button for like a minute. Well that did help the problem some what.
However I couldn't get any other version of Windows to even let me install without getting the BSOD. Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP Home (really weird), even my beta copy of Longhorn. For some reason it would only allow XPro without me getting the BSOD.
So I'm just going to take it into Radioshack (my 5 year warranty, (good until like November of 06 ) and have them replace the hard drive (if I buy one and put one in there "myself" it will void my warranty. However if they do it (i have to buy the hard drive from them which is outragous in price) they will charge for the HDD and to have it installed.

Maybe if you offered to pay the difference in price.
I wasn't clear enough. They will have to replace it themselves and put in a new one cause my laptop has to been in working order, according to the contract warranty. So they have to make sure it can be used before they can give it back to me. So yea... however if I wanted a bigger hard drive I think they would have to pay, however I wonder if I could get a bigger hard drive in this case?
