Hello,

MY 320 GB HDD ON MY DELL 1525 RECENTLY STARTED GIVING ME BLUE SCREENS AND TELLING ME THAT MY HARD DRIVE WOULD SOON FAIL AND TO BACK UP ALL FILES. I HAVE BACKED UP ALL FILES ON MY EXTERNAL HD. SPOKE WITH DELL TODAY AND THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME 150 POUNDS TO REPLACE MY HDD WHICH IS PRETTY EXP FOR A STUDENT. DECIDED TO JUST BUY THE PART MYSELF AND INSTALL THE NEW HDD WHICH SEEMS STRAIGHTFORWARD WITH SOME AIDE FROM YOUTUBE. I HAVE ALSO MANAGED TO OBTAIN A COPY OF WINDOWS 7 AND WANT TO INSTALL THIS ON THE NEW HDD INSTEAD OF THE STANDARD WINDOWS VISTA WHICH I HAVE. COULD ANYBODY HELP ME SO I DON'T MESS IT UP AND ALSO IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED IF SOMEONE COULD LET ME KNOW HOW I GET MY OLD BACKED UP FILES OFF MY EXTERNAL HD..

MANY THANKS,

SAM
