I'm pretty sure my laptop's hard drive is on the way out (perhaps unsurprisingly for a 4 year old) - I am increasingly finding the hard drive LED fixed permanently on causing windows lockups, slow boot times, and so forth. Formatting with a new copy of windows makes no improvement.
So I am on the hunt for a new drive, preferably to the tune of 250GB/7200RPM. I did previously try a Western Digital drive to these specs, but it produced a continuous clicking noise which I nor favoured or trusted, so was returned before long.
I am very out of touch with computer hardware these days - can anyone recommend a good bet?
