I have been having problems w/ my Compaq Presario 2218Rs Laptop for a while now. I've used the recovery disk a few times and it reinstalled the operating system, but it would only last a day or maybe a couple days and then it would crash again. Now I can't get the operating system to load and I've tried everything I know to try. I get numberous error messages and blue screens. some times it says that the partition can't be formatted.
I talked to an hp technician and he thinks I need a need hard drive. He said it would be like $400:eek: . The laptop came with a 60GB harddrive. I'm not sure if all harddrives are the same or if some have special features, but I've looked on the web and found 60 GB harddrives for $50! I could get a 756GB drive for the price hp wants to charge me for a 60. What gives?:?:
