you could buy the new HD and use something like acronis true image, or norton ghost (or for free drive image XML) to clone the old drive onto the new one...which will make an exact copy of the old drive...programs and all
If not and if I need a new hard drive is there a way to reload all my programs with serial no.s as well as data?

There will be a "migration tool" that will make an exact copy of what is presently on your HD, transfering it to your new HD. If a CD is not included, you should be able to download such a utility from the HD manufacturer's website.
Admittedly, this is easier for a DeskTop (simple actually) and additional study may be necessary if you are running a Laptop.
Follow the new HD manufacturer's instructions and you will be up and running with a new and well running HD, with all of your documents, files, and software in their familiar places.
