It's working fine. Thanks again. <BR><BR>Well I've to get my home computer fixed. hard drive crashed!!!! argggggggggh!!! I thought Dell are good ones.
...so it's really nothing directly to do with Dell.<BR><BR>
dell AP are currently using Maxtor, IIRC - usually pretty reliable drives, though there's always the chance of a lemon (or a modified system overcooking the thing)
A friend told me Maxtor is pretty darn good about replacing complete drives if you call them. Don't know from personal experience.
