Hey! I'm havin probs with my current hard drive in my acer travelmate 4150. most times it boots up windows no probs at all but sometimes bios won't find hard drive on POST boot screen and go's to a setup looking screen asking which drive u would like to boot from but selecting one doe's nothing and all i can do is continually reboot til it decides to work which it do'es eventually. I'm thinking HDD is faulty? Can anyone tell me whats goin on? Will i need a new HDD? if so which ones r compatible with my laptop? i have a Seagate 70 GB installed ATM

Yes it sounds like the hard drive is dying, as for buying a replacement considering it's a laptop I would consult a support rep from Acer and see if they will sell/install another one.

Are you still under warranty?

You will need to know if you need SATA or IDE interface on the drive, and to see what the max capacity is for the BIOS in your laptop. You could go to 120 and be safe, bigger than that tho will require the BIOS support $*bit LBA and XP SP2 or later for an OS that supports it also.
