Internal Hard Disk Drive Not Found

I have a Dell Inspiron that, when I attempted to start it yesterday, gave me the message, "Internal Hard Disk Drive Not Found". Not having experienced this before, I'm assuming that my hard disk crashed. I'm guessing I can replace the hard disk with another. Is there a way to recover the data that was on the disk? I hadn't used the laptop for a few months, so the only backups I have that are current are from my desktop. However, there are some things that I only did on the laptop and I'd like to get those back if possible. Also, can I put a larger capacity hard disk in as a replacement and, is it something I can do myself or do I need a tech? Obviously, I've never had this happen before, so I really don't know what to do at this point.
