What I mean is,compatibility wise,my old Vista OS worked fine before I switched to W7.It just stopped working and I have to re-install the Vista OS.Unfortunately,I don't have the original OS CD,so,I took chance with the W7 installer and that's how this trouble begun.

I am not going to spend that much money on a new hard drive.My laptop is old.Maybe getting a Windows Vista OS installer will make my expenses less,don't you think so?Something that will be compatible to my old existing hard drive which I think still works?
