Well recently my laptop wont turn on and boot, and makes this skipping noise non stop. im guessing its a broken hard drive... how difficult would it be to purchase and replace a hard drive in a laptop? seems to be much more difficult then a normal pc because everything is smashed together in that piggy back style.

XD

Rap makes me unsatisfied.
I do like some Linkin Park remixes but I still mainly listen to Classic rock bands like Journey,Queen etc.

I've put that in my signature on other forums too :)


EDIT:
forgot to say Guns n' Roses! XD
