lsiy Dear leee488, Thanks but no thanks to your advice.The link you gave says: Does not ship to Philippines. Well,I happen to live in the Philippines. It was just an example. You don't have to take the "advice' literally.

What I mean is,compatibility wise,my old Vista OS worked fine before I switched to W7.It just stopped working and I have to re-install the Vista OS.Unfortunately,I don't have the original OS CD,so,I took chance with the W7 installer and that's how this trouble begun.

I am not going to spend that much money on a new hard drive.My laptop is old.Maybe getting a Windows Vista OS installer will make my expenses less,don't you think so?Something that will be compatible to my old existing hard drive which I think still works?

Thanks the power light is green and the four green lights all flash on and off during the fire up and all go out I sometimes get the Dell screen and that enable me to get to the boot menu by pressing F12 - not sure if that helps?

Yes it has it's own power. It is the restore disc that came with the netbooks, XP

Have you run the Dell Diagnostics, as suggested, see page 4 of the service manual, the Dell resources CD that was shipped with the computer package can be used for this? Are there any 'Beeps'? Bev.

Unless that bigger hard drive is from an Optiplex GX60 with exactly the same hardware as yours, this is to be expected.

Thanks shesageordie. I don't mind giving it a go but before this happened i had had a number of blue screens /physical memory dumps screens when first firing the machine on.

Thanks for the fast reply. Ok, so what you're saying, the only way I can updgrade this HDD is to use one taken from another OPTIPLEX? What if I did a new install of XP on the new HDD? Any workarounds?

Thanks have run the symptom tree test on won't load Os and it came back all tests passed

Run full F12 diagnostics: httpdellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/f12-preboot-diagnostics/ Then if all passes clean install Windows XP, follow the instructions here: httpdellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/a-clean-install-of-windows/legacy-windows-xp-reinstallation-guide/

Before doing that, run an extended hard drive diagnostic - F12 at powerup. It's very likely you have a bad drive.

Need to find an old me or windows 98 boot disk and FDISK and format your drive. I'm at work now and don't have my data to explain all the procedures but if you google Fdisk i'm sure you'll get the procedure. If you do not have any luck I'll update later when I get home.

...and thankfully welcome any help suggested! I have a Dimension 4600 and Microsoft XP Home Edition and an error loading operating system message on my screen which is BLACK not blue. Is there anyway I can repair rather than totally replace...

Yes you will need to do a new install on the 80G HD since we do not know what drivers and such it has loaded on it. You might be able to re-image the 80G from the 20G if you use the proper software and the old drive is still operable. Good Luck.
