The laptop is not a lost cause. Here in Canada a new laptop hard drive say 320g is $69, plus imaging the old drive to the new....so it's not cheap, cheap, but if this is a half decent laptop, its worth it. Foremost, you may not even need to replace it, it may just be corrupted too the point of needing a re-install. Many manufactures these days do not give the disks, but instead include a recovery partition. So first I would try to find out if the hard disk is ok. Manufactures provide hard disk utilities to test their disks, usually requires making a bootable cd, but I would not throw in the towel, even the worst case isn't too bad.
