I have a Medion notebook which has a 20Gb hdd eunning windows xp sp1 (not installed sp2 yet). This notebook is 2+years old.

The present hdd is partitioned in a C (Boot) and D (Backup) drive.

Aldi are selling a 250Gb internal hdd which may be suitable for my notebook. The question is, how can I replace the existing drive with the new one?

Firstly have a look in the manual that came with your laptop to see if this describes how you'd carry out the task.

I believe that if you turn your laptop over and look underneath you'll see a panel that is held on with a screw behind this is the hard drive, click here that shows the task being done on a toshiba laptop
