Fist question is : Is the machine worth paying out money for or should I invest in a new machine ?.

If you get a new drive, it may not recognize it as a boot drive while the old drive is still in the machine.

Do you know anyone who could have a look at it for you (privately) as putting it in a shop (unless it is a top of the range machine) the cost would outweigh the benefits.
