It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.
There is chance of serious problem with the screen of the Your laptop. This problem is often seen in case of HP laptop which are more then 6-7 months old.
So if the laptop is under warranty they(customer care) will replaced the screen for free.
If not the will charge few $ and provide you with original screen.
Please check with the vendor from where you have bought your laptop.
I had this problem on my Pavilion DV6000. When I spoke to tech support they told me to unplug my computer and take the battery out for 5 minutes then replace it. I do not know why it worked but it did.
Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.
Hard drives are cheap. Find out what type of drive this supports (i.e. ATA or SATA), and buy a new drive. They're quite easy to replace, too. You'll just need a recovery CD to re-install your OS (operating system) after you put in your new drive.
