I took my computer to a repair shop. At the repair shop they:
1. Replaced my battery
2. Replaced my keyboard
3. Deleted the extra log in screen I had before you get to windows login.
4. The tech also resized my desktop background.
I got the computer back and it was fine until I restarted. When I restarted the changes must have taken effect. Initially my windows login was unavailable. I restored my computer to an earlier point and was then able to log in. I logged in and my computer was running really slow and it was working fine before I restarted. I took it back to the technician and they advised it was nothing they did that would cause this to happen. They advised I need another hard drive. I went there because my shift button was not working, now my whole computer doesn’t work. Based upon the things they’ve done (listed above), what could have happened?

Actually, based on the presumed age of a computer still running Vista, what probably happened is that something else broke.

When a car or computer gets to a certain age things seem to break more and more frequently, and we are faced with the question of when to repair and when to cut our loses and replace the car or computer.

I'm not able to locate a support site for a "Dell Inspiron 1050".
What's the exact 7-character "service tag" number on yours?

I'm surprised you spent more money than what that Dell is worth to get it fixed.
It would be much better spent on a more modern and faster one with a supported Windows operating system.
