It is a pretty simple process so long as you don't (or can't due to failure) want to keep the info on the existing hard drive. Once you open the case, there will probably be either 4 screws or some sort of plastic tray holding the hard drive in place. After removing those, the drive should just pull out - possibly from the front, but more likely inward. It only has two cables connected to it. Just connect them to th new drive (they can only be connected to the right places and in the right direction). Mount the new drive and proceed to reinstall the operating system using the recovery CD that came with the computer.

Driver upgrade possible?

Windows 7 has backup built in; you should be able to simply search 'backup' and find it. Since you are using a USB device for backup, you don't need any drivers.
