You didn't know if I needed a lot of space. That's why I said that I was happy with 250gb.

Ok, so which drive would you prefer to have? It's up to you to make a decision on this; either drive will do, but you need to pick the one which is better for your situation.

I understand but can I just go and get any hard drive/ssd or do I have to get a specific one for my HP G56 laptop?

You can get any HDD / SSD to replace the one that is failing. Be sure to buy same size. Normally is a 2.5" and Height = 7.00mm.
I have one of these. So far, so good. PNY CS1311 2.5 SSD7CS1311-240-RB - Newegg.com

If you're talking about the Factory Recover DVD's, boot from the fist one and follow the instructions.

Yes. Once I've installed the new hard drive or SSD, I just need to insert the DVD's at boot without going into the BIOS?

Correct. Everything will be installed automatically, with very little intervention on your part other than swapping disks as prompted.

The one thing you need to keep in mind: If you go with the SSD, you'll need to set up TRIM on the SSD. TRIM makes your SSD last a lot longer - it addresses issues unique to SSDs. However, if you go with a traditional hard drive, TRIM is not needed.

I have no idea what TRIM is or how to set it up. I might just go with a traditional hard drive, lol

Anyways, thanks for the help, I will come back if something goes wrong.
