WIN 7 died

My WIN 7 64bit won't get past 1st base (start) System ran an ERROR search on the disc 3 times, but came back 'not repairable'. I had pictures saved on an external drive but not everything.
Need to get a new hard drive to replace the dead one. Do I start with a new OS system? I want to fix it but need to know what to get besides the hard drive.
I did go out and buy a new computer, WIN 8.1 and will get WIN 10 free in 10 days or so. Microsoft is giving away FREE WIN 10...
If you want the WIN 10 do it soon....

If you still have your original Win 7 disk and product key, or factory recovery image disks and product key, the only thing you'll need to buy is a hard disk for the computer, and reinstall.

DIR-655 died; Need new router - One with the lot please
I'm sure I posted something about this a while ago but I can't find it. My DIR-655 has finally, and totally died. So it's time to replace it, and since I've had a bad run with DLink's I'm willing to look at other brands. I can do my own research, so I'm not asking anyone to do that for me,...

Today I finally decided that it was time for XP to go away. For some reason I have been attempting to make myself believe it was still a necessary OS, albeit it just wasn't happening. With the ability to run Vista in a VM, along with a copy of Win 7 32 bit it just didn't make a bit of sense to...
