How do I replace hard disk with right one .. ?

I have HP Pavilion G7 1232sg laptop with broken HD. I was looking on internet for that specific HD but I didnt find it.
How can I find it and does it need to be for HP Pavilion G7 1232sg or I can use any HD I want.

Seems you've got a 500Gb Sata 2,5" running 5400RPM in your laptop.

You could pick up the same HDD brand running 5400Rpm or one running 7200Rpm, but be aware that the 7200Rpm will produce more heat while running faster.

You could also upgrade to a SSD 2,5" but at cost for less GB but running much faster than traditional magnetic HDD.

If you're on the way to change your laptop Hard Drive, i would recommend to make Recovery DVD to save the hidden recovery partition of your laptop.

You should find it in the HP Software (HP Recovery Manager) how to make those Recovery DVD before replacing drive.

Do what the above HP link says.

It's a notebook and probably has an ordinary 2.5 inch hard drive. Maybe an SSD, maybe an HDD. You need to find out by using that link.

Problem is that I have broken screen.I was playing on monitor when I get 1(301) error. That errors is because HD is physically damaged. I played on monitor that show image when windows loads.

So I dont know how to make recovery DVD without fixing screen. If u know some trick how to make monitor turn on sooner that would be great because screen on laptop is 300 dolars and I dont have that much money now

Please help if u can

Haven't you got a VGA or HDMI entry to plug to an external monitor?
