To remove the hard drive from a Dell Latitude, look at the side directly OPPOSITE of the I/O jacks (Headphone, mic, input/aux) side. You will see one small screw in the middle of a tray. Once you remove this screw, you will be able to pull this tray (hard drive caddy) out from the laptop. The hard drive will be in this tray. If you are replacing your hard drive, remove screw(s) on the bottom of the tray to remove the hard drive from the tray and be sure to also remove the interface adaptor, attached to the pin end of the old hard drive and place on new hard drive.

Older dell latitude cpx running XP. yesterday after loading firefox and a few mozzilla add ons .. today I boot to error 0 no primary hard disk found.. bios says no hdd installed ????


Hello, Jay.

Well, as the message indicates, your hard disk drive is failing or failed. Try running your diagnostics to verify (boot and press F2 or F12 repeatedly).

If the hard drive is failing, see if someone locally can help to retrieve your documents and other files by removing the drive and setting up the drive as a slave drive on another computer.

The drive would then need to be replaced. Price the same type of drive but it may not be cost-effective to use another drive in this computer.

Hope this helps.

My dell latitude cpx j650gt does not have recovery partition working and I neeed to restore it to factory settings. I do not have original OS discs as I bought it used.


You do know only certain models have an os image on their harddrive and it is this that is enabled with F9 whilst booting (or other key)Failing this you will just have to install from external Dvd/Cd rom etc-this is the fact.

Need to upgrade


Yes call Fries Electronics let them know what model laptop you have they can tell you the type of memory you need SoDimm more then likely, they will give you a price. It is better to remove the old memory and take it with you when you go to buy it has to match. Also you can ask what is the largest recommended hard drive they have for this model laptop, probably 60gb. The motherboard for that laptop does have limitations. That laptop probably does not have a built in wireless card so you can either use a hard wire RJ45 Data cable and plug the other end into your Internet Router, or you can purchase a PCMCIA Wireless Card to insert into the slot on the side of the laptop. This PCMCIA Card will allow you to access the internet wirelessly. You have now beefed up your CPx Latitude.

External Toshiba 400GB HDD not recognized on my Dell CPx J650GT


New hard drives need to be formatted! So go into the control panel switch to classic view, ( if you are still using category view for the control panel ) open administrative tools, then open computer management. Next open disk management. In disk management your new drive will show as raw, you will be give the option of formatting the drive, select primary partition and format in NTFS.
This will then format the drive, when this has finished your new drive will appear in my computer.

How to upgrade a Dell Latitude CPX - Intel P3 500-650 laptop


I have a CPX H500GT. To get it to run XP Pro to run right, max out the ram. And get a larger harddrive. Xp uses a substantial amount of space.

Software purchase


Hello dazz_hammer,

You can put up to Windows XP. If do, I would suggest to add memory and bigger hard drive.

Or if the pc has Windows Product Key Tag, and what ever the operating system it indicates then you can re-install that operating system.

Hope this helps and good luck.
