So, my laptop was fine this morning. I came home and it had locked up completely. I reboot it and it won't boot. I go into the BIOS to check drive...drive not found. Yes, drivei n my laptop died today. I've never liked hitachi drives but it's the one that came with it. When I worked at an ISP, we had SO MANY hitachi drive failures compared to other drives. This is the first hard drive that has outright failed on me and, yes, it's hitachi.

On the bright side, I had been wanting to upgrade it, and now I have to. Failed drive was 4200 RPM 60 gb. New drive will be 120 gb and 5400 RPM. I think the hitachi drive also only had 2mb cache, where the new one will have 8mb. But...I'm out $85 Sad

That sucks. ><

As an attempt to one-up your story, my laptop, a 1 GHz Dell, goes through about 1 hard drive a year. I even had one fail exactly 366 days after I bought it.

Lol. I had a feeling this drive's life was short. It made an odd sound at one point that made me worry. That was about 2 months ago.
