Inspiron N5050 Hard Drive Crashed. Drive type and OS Reinstall help

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 N5050.

This unit was having high lag and memory utilization of 100% shown in task manager and resource monitor. Ran Dell Extended Troubleshooting. Results = Hard Drive error. Replace hard drive.

What are the Hard Drive specs for this unit.

This unit runs Win 7. How do I reinstall on new hard drive?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Any 2.5" SATA notebook drive will work that's 9.5 mm or slimmer.

Ideally you prepared a set of recovery media when you received the system -- if you did not, you will need to contact Dell to purchase that now.
