Replacing a screen is pretty simple. However I would make a few suggestions that will nudge that towards pretty painless.

First search the net for a pictorial step by step. There should be several versions. Each place that sells the parts usually has their own instruction available for free. The trick is to find one that makes the most sense or is the clearest. You may even be able to find the service manual for your machine but that won't be quite as clear as a good pictorial.

Second make sure you have all the tools you will need. Usually only a small jewelers screw driver set has everything.

Third Have a small container to place the screws in. I use one of those 7 day pill reminders to keep the different size sorted. You shouldn't need much more than that but if nothing else use cups or glasses.

Fourth. Brightly lit and clear/clean workspace. The parts are small so if you drop one they are a pain to chase down.

Fifth Make sure you have enough time to do this with no distractions. An hour should be enough. If you ever have to do a second one it will take about 5 minutes but the first time its always slow.

And as a word of advice don't overtighten the screws. Just snug them down and maybe an 1/8 turn more. Any more and you can crack the plastic.

This indicates hard drive issues or the windows files are corrupted. If you have a backup recovery disc, try and install the operational system, if no luck! have the hardware tested to see if you require a replacement hard drive.

New hard drive- what to do next

start with the first disc of the OS, then follow the on screen instruction,
