make sure the laptop will handle a drive bigger than 130 gig. if not make two partitions when you set it up, bios wont see it but usually windows will. also, sometimes ive found that if i delete the partition a few times it eventually reads right. dont know why but have done it that way several times. you can also download a diskmanager program from thier website which makes an overlay if your bios wont support a 250.

Note: If you cannot find drivers for your WD drive, it may be because most WD
drives do not include drivers as they use a standard driver built into
the OS. If the driver is built into the OS or is already installed and
the OS continues to look for a driver, your drive has most likely failed or been damaged and needs to be replaced.
According to Western Digital: "Most current WD drives do not require additional drivers on the Windows or Mac OSX Operating System (OS) beyond the ones that are included with the OS."
In order to simplify the installation process WD elected to use the standard drivers that are built into common operating systems. While there are a few exceptions to this, in general, there are no drivers provided by WD for our drives. That's because the drivers a WD hard drive or SSD uses are part of your Operating System. As such, any trouble with these drivers should be handled by the regular line of support for your operating system - in most cases by contacting your system manufacturer, IT department, or the publisher of your OS.
Internal Hard Drives and SSD: All internal Hard Drives and SSDs use drivers that are built into the operating system. There are no drivers available for download because of this. If your internal drive is not recognized, it can be caused by one of the following problems:
