    RJ or somebody that knows something about PC's.

    I need a hardrive for a HP Pavilion 750 CTO Desktop PC. 1.60ghz, WEM, Pentium 4.

    The problem is I have no old hardrive to reference. What do I need and where do I get it?

    Do you physically have the machine?

    I think a pavilion 1.6ghz should have no problem with an off the shelf IDE/ATA hard drive. You can pick one up at Best Buy, office max/depot, online at CDW, newegg, etc. I bought my last hard drive at best buy for $60, and I think it was a 120gb or something.

    They're getting cheaper and easier to get.

    Ah, piece of cake. If you were closer, I'd give you a 20gb I've had in shrink wrap for the past 8 months.
    Getting an OS is going to be a beotch (or just expensive), unless you know someone that can slide you a copy of windows.

    Thanks guys, that's the problem being raised in the age of rotary phones. I've got my own copy of Windows XP I can put on her system.

    Just like kids, even when they are older they still drag home crap for you to fix.:haha:

    Go to the manuf. website and see what it calls for, then find one that is comparable to it locally.
