    Toshiba desktop repair advice please

    Hi, I have a Toshiba all in one desktop which is a few years old and running intel i3. It's either slow to start up or fails to start so I'm thinking it's probably hard drive.
    My question is really, a, is it worth repairing at this age or b, might I have a go myself. Any thoughts please.
    Thanks

    Yep. Same, Samsung SSD. Did my wifes laptop a few weeks ago. Samsung came with cloning software. Around 25 minutes to clone an swap the drives in a Lenovo laptop. Swapped it from 4gb to 8 gb as well. It boots up in around 20 seconds now and is very fast from VERY slow!

    Watch out for the b'stards they're out to get you
