    Any more info on whats wrong with it mate. If you want to perform a backup you will need to buy a backup application if you want your XP or Vista to restore too and not just your files. Acronis True Image and Norton Ghost are good but a bit pricey expect around £40.

    What operating system have you got installed? How old is the laptop? Have you got a recovery partition on the hard drive?
    I like to ask a lot of questions
    There is a couple of free packages out there http://www.filehippo.com/download_oo..._express/tech/ also http://www.filehippo.com/download_driveimagexml/
    I've never used these if you want to invest I'd go for Acronis http://www.acronis.co.uk/homecomputing/
