Looks like the Hard Drive is not in good shape, I would backup everything you need to an external hard drive and think about replacing the faulty one!
How old is the Laptop and Make and Model?

Thought it might be that, will I be able to back up if I remove the hard drive from the laptop, put it into a reader and transfer the files to another laptop?
The laptop does not recognise if I plug a external hard drive into the USB port so O have no other way of backing it up. The laptop is a DELL INSPIRON 1545, its approx 3 years old.

Depending on how bad it is, you can remove the hard drive and place it into a USB caddie and see if you can access the data that way.

Not sure if this is still current/in date, but it might be another method.

I second the SSD and keep your Data on an External Hard Drive.
I have 2 External Hard Drives that I keep in sync and keep all my data on. You just never know!

Thanks for the info guys, I've purchased a new hard drive and put it in my laptop, when I turned the laptop on, and it comes up "no boot sector on internal hard drive, I've tried turning it on, pressing F12 and it gives me choices of
Internal hard drive
Cd/DVD/cd-rw drive
Onboard NIC
BIOS setup
Diagnostics

I've put in my windows 6 disc, do I click on cd/DVD drive? When I do click on the option it comes up as "no bot sector on internal hard drive! Please help and giver as much info as possible

You'll need to change the Boot option in BIOS so it reads the Boot options from the DVD before it tries to read it from your new HDD (which there's nothing on...). It looks like it's looking at your Internal Hard Drive first (see the order they're in?) so change the order so the DVD drive is above it. Reboot and follow the prompt to Press Any Key...

I've even put a USB stick which contains all the drives, clicked on it and it comes up "missing operating system"

Sounds from your two posts it's still trying to read from your hard disk. Are you certain it's looking for the DVD Drive first?

when you boot up and you get the "boot from DC/DVD message" press any key. Doing this will allow your system to boot off your optical device. Are you sure your Win7 disk is bootable?
Does this new HDD show in the BIOS?

i think that the old hdd you took out contained all the data of the operating sysytem and BIOS. you put the old hdd into the computer, backup the full drive in a dvd then again put the new hdd and transfer all the data from the dvd into the new hdd. otherwise install the windows 7 operating system from a disc to your pc with the new hdd in it.

oscar13, if you quite positive the Windows 7 disc is bootable, from your previous post wherein you press F12 and gave you the choices, choose Cd/DVD/cd-rw drive (use the up/down arrow key to navigate, I think you can not use the mouse at this time) and press Enter key and boot from the disc.

As G41M, but you will then get a message to verify that you want to boot from that device. It doesn't give you very long to hit any key, so pay attention.
