How to open the hard drive on the HP 2700 ultra-slim expansion base?

My wife has done this previously, but it won't open today
by depressing what looks like a lever. We have no instruction manual and don't want to damage it by forcing it.

How to set a toshiba hard drive to slave?

Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.

Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.

Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.

Replace the opened cover.

Replace the battery and power cord.

Turn on the computer.

The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.

Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.

hope this helps

How can I replace my 30GB ultra ATA EIDE HDD with

Purchase a solid state drive, 2.5" for laptops 3.5" for desktops (or use an adapter for notebook drives with a 2.5")

Connect your IDE cable (and power cable on desktops) to the drive, install Windows and you are done!

If you want to keep your existing data, get an external enclosure for the appropriate sized disk and use a program like Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image to clone the existing drive to the new one, then swap the two drives (SSD from enclosure to internal, other drive out to enclosure)

Comment if you need more information!

Is it safe to hot undock HP 2730p from ultra-slim expansion base 2700? Product documentation doesn't indicate a problem with doing this, but it still sort of freaks me out? Any advice?

Even if the documentation does not say anything against, you should not take the chance. It is electronics after all. Always shutdown and then undock.

Hp 2700 hard disk is bad . need to recover files and data . please solve

If you have no access then your only option may be sending the drive to a data retrieval service. This is not cheap and not an overnight thing.

If you know a brave local techy who knows his stuff he could swap the control boards inside the drive with the ones from a identical working drive.

HP Expansion Base - Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Set-Up

Any Radio Shack or Best Buy for sure and even Staples and the like will have wireless devices that should help you figure out how to hook up what you have. For that matter a new set might be so inexpensive as to save you the hassle.

Good luck,

This is not a hard drive problem. You simply have a corrupt installation of Windows. Blank you drive (format it ENTIRELY) and re-start over again with a fresh install.
