hey all,

i am the once proud owner of a gorgeous 3110ct toshiba portege.
Alas i dropped it and a new hard drive was put into it, after 6 months the hard drive died on me and it's now i am looking for help!

I am looking to buy a new hard drive and take a shot at replacing it myself - god loves a trier lol

What i am worried about is that having looked all over at hard drives i am still a little unsure about what drive to get - can i buy any old slim-line and stick it my machine or do i have to find a very specific hard drive? what is the norm on slim-line laptops and on toshiba's?

I am guessing that since my machine was sent to ibm to be repaired it has an ibm drive in it. I understand it has a ultra dm 33 8.45mm hard drive spec.

If any one has any other info on toshiba hard drives i'd love to hear about it.
