I have a fairly basic knowledge about computers, so I am hoping that I will get some help with my problem here.
I have a Lenovo T440 and the hard drive failed after just 3 months of light use. I don't have a recovery disc, but since it is still under warranty, Lenovo gave me three options:
1. Either mail the laptop to them or
2. Get it repaired at a local depot (at a Lenovo partner agent) or
3. Repair it myself after they mail me a new hard drive with an installation disc
As someone who has never attempted to do any kind of major troubleshooting, will I be able to repair it myself using option 3? I am also thinking of buying an SSD and use the replacement HDD that Lenovo sends me as a backup drive using an enclosure. If I want to do this, what steps do I have to follow?
Also, what about options 1 & 2?
