You haven't seen the fur balls in this house.

On my G72, the left front is where the hard drive resides. Same with the DV2000. There might not be anything you can do about that...
The hard drive is less than two years old. I replaced it when the previous one died, and then used the clean canvas to try a bunch of [other] Linux distros. I settled on Bodhi, which is very lightweight yet lovely to look at, and it brought that laptop back to life. If it's the hard drive dying, I'll be very surprised, considering its relative newness. I think that would be a record for me! And it hardly gets any use--the laptop I'm typing this on is my REAL laptop; that one is just for middle of the night puttering around when I'm wide awake [thank you wonderful insomnia... *sigh*].

since you are running Linux, it likely doesn't need defragmenting.
No, that's a window$ thing.
