Replacement drive for HP DV5000

\015 My hard drive is toast - not recognized on any bootup sequence. What kind of hard drive will I need to replace it? Will the unit accept a 250 gb drive? I assume all you have to do is take the screws off the back and swap out old drive for new. Will the BIOS recognize the new drive? Will Windows OS load right up?\015
