      He wants to sell this one for whatever I can get so he can get something on sale at BestBuy. He wants $200. Everything is good with it, except there is either an issue with the hard drive, OR the onboard IDE controller. CDs and DVDs work fine, such as an Ubuntu Live disc. However, when in windows booted from C drive, within a few seconds of entering XP, five times out of ten a BSOD comes up. Yes, we have formatted and reinstalled twice so far. Occasionaly, on the startup screen, it says it cannot find Fixed Disk 0.
      Aside from all of that, it would be a good laptop. We are taking the HDD out before sale.
