You need to remove the old hard drive first. Depending on your model, there should be a screw or two on the bottom of the computer that gives you access to the hard drive. You remove the old drive, take it out of it's caddy, take the special connector off of it and install it on the new drive, put the new drive in its caddy, and replace the hard drive.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this as fixya.

You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.
