ignatzatsonic is correct. You will see a marked increase in performance with an SSD. You can also use a smaller one than you think. I ran a Desktop on a 60 GB for over a year, with no problems, although I had a Mechanical hard drive for my personal Data. You can use a USB Flash drive for that or a portable external hard drive, if you can't get an SSD big enough to hold it all. The performance increase will be worth it.

Thanks for your reply,

I thought as well for ssd technology but it is not an option for now since it is a bit over my budget and yet I need more space than 250 GB.
can you please guide me which internal HHD should I buy and it is compatible with my laptop.
I.want to know other than toshiba hard disc which other specific internal hard discs are compatible

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

Replace it with what you have now. You'll be assured of compatibility.
