I have a Dell Inspiron 5200 laptop. The hard drive recently went bad. It is a 30 GB hard drive

I need to install a new one but I have no idea what is a good manufacturer. Can you reccommend something please?
I would like to install a 40, 60 or 80GB hard drive. Would this be compatible with all other laptop components?

Thank you for any help.

You need to take this in to account if you get the drive from somewhere other than Dell

NOTE: Dell does not guarantee compatibility or provide support for hard drives from sources other than Dell.

I didn't see a 5200 on the UK or USA sites?
