    I've lost count at how many of those PCs have been brought in by people for repair at work.

    Poor CPU Cooling.
    Poor Power Supply.
    Poor DELL motherboard.
    Poor Plasticy Chassis that is a nightmare to open.

    :cool:

    Exactly! It SUCKS :)
    Ive already broken the plasticy chassis :p
    Was trying to put in a harddrive that i stole out of my dads security camera system thing..(It was broken :p) and took out the hard drive, installed windows XP on it and when i tryed to put it into my dell pc, appreantly it needs to be an original dell hard drive or something.. so what im gonna do is(when i get a round to it) format the hard drive and then put it in dell hard drive and install XP from the dell OEM cd through there and hopefully it works.. it was a 160gb hard drive which is far better then my current 40gb that only has 2 gb's left and only 30gb was usable which was pretty... annoying? =\, im sure that was all in the wrong category haha

    Just whack the 'borrowed' hard drive into a USB 3.5 Inch HDD Enclosure and use it as an External hard drive?

    But the hard drive wouldnt fit in there.. its a bit larger since it wasnt originally made for a pc, it was made for the security system thingy, but luckily all the wiring was the same but im sure it wouldnt fit in a 3.5
