After receiving the S.M.A.R.T. Message that my HD was failing, I was able to backup to an external HD with a system image. I did not get a recovery disk made before I lost the HD completely. So, I have a brand new HD placed in the laptop, and the backup on my external HD. What do I do now? When I turn on the computer, nothing happens because I can't get windows on the new HD. (Because I know nothing about this stuff). Can anyone help me? I am illiterate when it comes to tech lingo, so dumb it down if you can. Lol
Not sure if it matters, but I have a Sony Vaio laptop that's only a year and a half old. No disks came with, but I have the windows product code sticker on the bottom.
Thank you in advance for your help!
