  1. Hello, again. I recently got a new hard drive called WD (Western Drive) Scorpio 1TB. So, I set it up and stuff on the back of the computer. As flip it over and and turn on the laptop I want to hopefully see a good sign. Rather, I see nothing with a Black screen and annoying 'Beeping' sounds! I tried many times to put the windows 7 disk in and it would not work and go back to the black screen and beeping noises. Please, help!

    Reference:
    Model : Dell Inspiron N5030
    Hardrive : WD Scorpio Blue 1tb / 8 Ram / 5400 RPM

    Perhaps it isn't the hd that needed replacing.

    (need some background/details before any real help can be given)
