You probably have to format the new drive in your computer. It is rare to find a plug and play HDD. Do this either by right clicking on the drive in windows and selecting format. Or in dos by typing Format d: or if it is your c:\ drive you will need to boot off a boot disk which it sounds like you got the boot but if it is a drive the computer boots off you need to type format c:/s the /s makes the drive bootable

Good day sir/ma'am, my problem is that every time I open my laptop, there's a blue screen flashing when I'm about to enter Windows. after that quick flash of blue screen, my system is quickly restarting....


Hi, this is clearly a corruption in Windows itself. I would recommend running your HDD based recovery (if you have one), or run the recovery discs that you got with your laptop. This will however delete all of your personal files. You can backup your hard drive before doing this by purchasing an appropriate HDD enclosure for your hard drive and plugging it into another laptop or desktop PC. Once you have done this, then run your recovery discs (or HDD based recovery). If you provide the model of your laptop, I can elaborate further. Hope this information helps

Its because the HDD (hard disk drive) has failed. Just replace with any SATA 2.5'' Laptop HDD. Install. Power on. And follow the setup.
