Would changing laptop's hard drive help get rid of 'PC needs to be repaired' blue screen?


If you have access to another PC, you can put the drive in there and "format" it. That will wipe everything from it, so you can load from the recovery CDs. Likely no need to buy new drive.

Kiss the laptop good bye and buy a new one.
If the hard drive is undamaged then you can remove it form the laptop and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive for backing up and transferring files.

How do i hook my hard drive back after it was taken out


Hi There,
Laptop hard drives do not have wires. They are a simple plug in and go device. You should be able to open the hard drive caddy on the bottom of your laptop and slip the hard drive back in without any issues

Most laptop computers have a place for only one hard drive. If you have the capability of installing two, then you can do it.
I would clone the old drive to the new one--you will need an external USB adapter to do this. Then you'll have more room. You also can offload a lot of your stuff to CD or DVD or an external drive to free up space.

When your new hard drive is installed does the Bios see it?
If not then you have an issue with the hard drive. Quite often this issue can be resolved by simply removing the IDE cable blowing out any dusk and reattaching it.
If that doesn't work try disabling the LAN boot option. You can also try changing the HD from ACHI to EDI, changing the Boot order and/or simply resetting the bios.
Try these and if you have no go for launch repost what you did and I'll try and help from there.
Hope this helps.

Loosing 2gb on hard drive everytime


if it has hp windows installed as standard it reserves some space for recovery so if O/S plays up it can be recovered from it.
One other thing it may be is if a hard drive is listed as 200gb when formatted it is a lot smaller
listed size 200gb formatted size 185GB this is only an example as actual size may differ hope this helps
