    Can you be a little more descriptive? Tell what happens as the computer is turned on. Write down the error messages and include them back here.

You need to install a OS disk (operating system disk) ie windows xp / vista / 7.
When buying a new harddrive, they are blank (No OS on them / nothing)



Place your OS into the disk drive and keep hold of power button until notebook powers off.
Turn back on your notebook while disk incerted and follow the simple instructions given to you via the OS disk

Hope this helps and pleae rate.

You are probably not doing anything wrong it sounds as if you have a motherboard problem a quick test is to put the old hard drive into another computer if it works in the good computer it more than likely the motherboard in your computer that is failling

do not believe you need replace the hard drive
i think you may have a registry error
you may have a application conflict or surface error

try booting in either step mode or safe mode

step mode will let you know where in the boot process the error occures

in safe mode you can run a registry utility like iolo system / registry mechanic
& run error checking

if you need neer to remove & backup your drive you can get a hard drive usb adapter cable set $10-$20 - less work

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

Problem swapping hard drive


Smart errors are telling you the drive you are inserting will fail soon. It has recorded errors that indicate that drive is no longer usable. The drive still may work right now. But there is no telling when it will bite the dust. It could be 2 hours, it could be 2 months. I would trash the drive with smart errors.
