Answers :

I would agree with everybody here but just want to make sure your doing the right thing in replacing the HDD. When you boot the xp instalation disc run it in repair mode and run a chkdsk on it. this should tell you if you have any bad sectors or not. If not, dont just re-format, make sure you remove the partition and write a new one or do a low-level format to be certain your drive is clean. All of the dust removal and cleaning you can comfortably do is very good for the laptop also. if its still overheating and causing drive issues replace it or buy a fan stand for it to keep cool on. Good Luck
I concure with my associate, the symptoms indicate a bad hard drive or overheating. \015\012Certainly try to clear the heat sink before replacing the hard drive. \015\012Good luck
