My apologies if this is the incorrect forum... Im new here! I know zero about computers!
My computer stopped working and a friend told me my harddrive might be fried. I figured it would be a good time to upgrade my HDD and start from scratch. I watched some tutorials on youtube and it seemed simple so i just swapped out the existing WD HDD for another one... Exact same but more storage. I might be making an incorrect assumption, but I figured i would need a new OS once i swapped HDDs, so I got a new copy of windows 8.
I put in the disc, but nothing happens. No startup screen, no windows 8 install, no "no harddrive detected"... Nothing.
