    well i bought a used laptop which is pretty decent, it's an ibm a22m for like $300. i've been using it for like 2 or 3 months now with no problems. all of a sudden the hard drive sounds like it's clunking and such. i ran the diagnostics, it made some horrible sounds and it says '0x73 exessive shock' or something similar. i didn't thrown the computer around at all...i don't know why it would do that. anyways, i was wondering where i should get another hard drive and if hard drives just break for no reason like that? i've had my seagate break before, and just had it replaced while it was in warrentee. i'm just afraid if i give the drive back to ibm that they will give me a new drive, but they will charge me for it once they look at the drive. i might as well buy a hard drive for like $100 somewhere than buy a $400 ibm direct part.

    thanks,
