On the site you see 3 prices but this is a typo as the prices all come to £ 190.89 so click the first Buy Now button.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for your answer. I have looked at the item on the site and it appear to be what I want. Will I be able to use the old Hard drive without losing anything. Will the motherboard blowing likely to have spoilt anything else like RAM or screen. Lastly would you advise replacing anything else with the new board.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Yes, you can use all the components with the new hard drive.
The motherboard blowing would likely not effect the RAM or Screen, but you will only know this once replacing the motherboard.
I would not replace anything else, once you put the new motherboard in place, it should all then work, as its the exact same component.
