[wanted] laptop HD or laptop wanted, zurich, urgent!!

Not for me, a fellow EF'er in need

basically her acer aspire went titsup a few weeks ago, I fixed it and now its broken again, looks like the HD has gone, seems to be a common issue with aspire ones, so she basically needs a new HD or laptop. Anyone got an old laptop or old netbook hd laying around gathering dust? just needs to be good enough to get online and view pictures, I already backed up all her stuff last time onto dvd.

Re: [wanted] laptop HD or laptop wanted, zurich, urgent!!

I've an old Asus laptop lying around which hasn't really been used for 2-3 years. Bought in 2004/5, IIRC. Still works, I even managed to install W7 on it to see if it would run, and it does. Can't remember the HDD size off the top of my head though. Problem is, I'm not exactly anywhere near Zürich. Oh yeah, for free, it's not worth anything to re-sell anyway.
This user would like to thank PaddyG for this useful post:

I've got both types, left over from various "upgrades" - The usual 2.5" notebook size.

Re: [wanted] laptop HD or laptop wanted, zurich, urgent!!

quick update, I took the netbook apart yesterday and replacing the hd isn't a viable option, it looks like its glued to the motherboard and I don't rate the chances of getting it off without damaging everything.

So I'm going to stick unix on an sd card and let it boot up into that, that will get the ef'er back on line at least.

in the mean time if anyone has an old laptop knocking around, any age, any spec, just as long as it works then please let me know, zurich, baden, glarus area, or you can post and I'll sort out the postage costs.
