If you have a little experience with computer hardware, you can try doing it yourself by carefully opening the screws(the hard drive area normally has a hard drive symbol on it) underneath to reveal the hard drive, carefully remove it from its slot and replace it with the new one.

It should be simple but if you are not sure or yourself, let an experienced person or a computer technician fix the new hard drive for you.

hi there
there are couple of steps involved in formating the laptop.
i will try to give simple and easy solution
--> save/backup all your important data into external hard drive or DVD/CD so you will not loose the data
--> i hope you have the xp cd with you
--> put the xp cd in the drive
--> restart the computer
--> press del/f2 to go to BIOS (setup)
--> in boot configure first drive should be your dvd drive
--> press F10/ save changes and exit
--> it will ask press any key to load from cd
--> after that the xp setup will start
--> follow the instructions
--> you can delete and create partitions here too or simply format the drive
--> install the xp
--> install the drivers
--> your laptop is ready to go but dont forget to change the BIOS setting to normal again.

hope it will help you sir.

5)open ghost,and do a "restore"-of the saved image folder-TO new hd,re-install new 250gig in laptop.
///YOURE done!!!
-now you will have a back-up(old hd,AND image file folder.
