HD failure


Jul 27, 2011
Hello, I have a dell xps-420 and the hard drive has failed. Ram is running with 20% left . I'm running Intel R core TM2 Quad CPU Q6600 @2.40 ghz. Have two hard drives with 14.9GB and 217GB on C:

How do you know the drive has failed, just becuase your RAM usage is high does not mean anything. You may want to post the exact issue, error messages, etc...

Not sure what you are looking for here either, did you have a question? That system sounds to be pretty new, contact Dell to get a new drive if it's really bad.
