Thanks - I guess I may not have explained very well. Prior to my installation attempt last evening, i did do the Disk Verify and Repair with apparent success, if I can believe the system. Also, I am using the original disk that I got with the computer.

I suppose that if it were possible to detect the bad sector that if you partitioned the drive that you might be able to get by with it for a while that way.

Is it difficult to install a new hard drive for the average individual of reasonable intelligence. I'm pretty sure I have reasonable intelligence, just short on patience i guess.

Thanks for the suggestions - someone else suggested I do a hardware test which I shall do later on and post results.
