Hi everyone. It's been a while since I posted (over a year in fact) and now I am in desperate in need of your advice.

I have a Dell Latitude D600 laptop computer. It currently has a 60gb hard drive which has now completely died.

a) Can I actually replace the hard drive? Or do I need a new computer?

b) If I can replace the hard drive, can I buy the 100gb hard drive and install that instead, or does it have to be the 60gb hard drive? To be honest, the 60gb wasn't really enough so the extra 40 gigs would come in handy.

The computer is our lifeblood at home for contacing our families (both of whom live abroad) and it's our only one. We get married in just under a month, so we really can't afford to buy a new computer just yet. Help!!

Many thanks in advance....

Yes on both counts (hard drive can be replaced and you can put a 100Gb in it). If a machine can see a 60Gb it'll see a 100Gb easily.

Very grateful Neil! I'm okay on the software side of things, but I know nothing about hardware upgrades etc so wanted to check and be sure. Thanks very much...
