  1. Try and back up the contents.

    Then, if you feel competent to remove the drive, note the model number (as you mentioned above) or take the drive out and go with it to a retailer and ask for a compatible replacement.
  2. I recently had the same problem, bad sectors on HDD causing it to slug aroud I took what I needed off it and replaced with a 320 GGB HDD Toshiba, Now I cannot get it to go on the net, I believe I need to down load the serial number for the motherboard to get a download for it to work wire less????
