I am new, and am looking for help with *$#$* Dell Computer. Indian nationals are nice people, but don't seem to understand that a dying hard disk (under warranty) is a big deal. I hope to learn how to replace my hard drive and with what.

I want to thank the people responsible for this site.

I am a senior male, am dependant on my computer, and don't grasp some computer concepts as quickly as I should. I live in the mountains of California, and am not close to any support groups or computer stores.

You don't have to be physically close to computer help and support when you can go on-line and get help from the BC user community. Check the Hardware forum and search for installing a hard drive; there may be instructions already posted. If not, create a new post and be sure to tell us what kind of computer you have and what version of Windows you have. The actual replacing of a hard drive is fairly simple, since most just slide in and out and there are only a few (VERY SMALL) wires to connect. What takes the time is to reinstall Windows and all the other applications you have on your hard drive.

It's good to see you here.
The good thing about this site is that if you don't grasp things quickly..... it doesn't matter. Just take your time and you'll be surprised what you can pick up.
Good luck to you
