I have an E Machines ET1331G-05W and I know that the internal hard drive has crashed, I back it up often to an external hard drive, so no information was lost. My question is what exactly do I need to fix my computer.

The message of course started out like: BOOTMGR MISSING PRESS CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.
Then it goes on to say: CPUID:0F62h Stepping: 02h
L1 Cache: 256 KB L2 Cache: 2048 KB L3 Cache: N/A
Speed: 1.60 GHz Count: 2

Would I be correct in purchasing a 500GB (or higher) SATA 3.0 GB\S 7200 RPM internal hard drive?

Your question... Would I be correct in purchasing a 500GB (or higher) SATA 3.0 GB\S 7200 RPM internal hard drive?

yes this should work as Sata 3 is suppose to be backwards compatible... i am assuming your PC has a little age on it..

There was a reference that these Sata 3 HDD's...consume a bit more power... If you do not store a lot of stuff than 500 gigs this may do,sometimes you can find a 1TB HDD at a good price...
