HHD Failure In Compaq CQ60-100EM

August 24, 2010 at 03:34:31
Specs: Windows vista, not sure
My wife has this notebook after a year and half of having it she got this message:"Hard disk failure imminant press f1 to back up or to ignore. My wife not being computer pro decided to ignore and the laptop would not boot ever since. I tried to press f1 to back up but it wont let me do it.

I am thinking about to buy another HDD which dont cost a lot compared to a new laptop, but what scares me is that i never made a back up disk, and what happens when i replace the drive i would need drivers before reloading windows 7...

Please help i am so confused?

If you have the Windows 7 disk, you can use that to reinstall the os. After installation, you can go to manufacturer's website to download all the drivers. Do you have recovery disks that came with the laptop?
