I need instructions how to remove hard drive


Use the camera function on your cell phone; take picture of all cable connections
disconnect all cables to your computer
disconnect thumbscrews/screws holding computer cabinet shell at the back of computer
slide the cabinet shell forward exposing chasis frame. Lay computer on its side

important: Ground your body to the chassis frame (prevents static discharge damage)

Locate harddrive; with a magic marker ink one side to each of the two plugs and their sockets that are connected to the hard drive.(take picture maybe easer)
This is called making withness marks; it gives you a reference and orientation when you put things back together; the smaller plug is the power plug; the larger plug is for data.

Remove screws that secure harddrive to frame; Ground new harddrive to chasis; replace harddrive.

How do i remove the hard drive from a hp pavilion a1320n


1) Computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal fame of the open computer case to relieve your body of Static.
Also before you take new hardware components out of their anti-static bags, or boxes.

If you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Replacing the Harddrive, (Hard Disk drive),

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00639788&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1818050&tmp_track_link=ot_search

The Harddrive is a SATA harddrive. Uses a SATA 7-pin data cable, and a 15-pin SATA power cable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

Top right photo shows the SATA data cable connector, and cable.
Top right photo below it shows a typical SATA data header (Connector) on a motherboard.

Typical SATA power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
IF, your SATA harddrive has a connection for a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable, (Misnomered as Molex), AND a connection for a SATA power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.
It will Burn Up the Harddrive if you use both.

If you are putting a new Harddrive in, you will need to have backed up, (Copied) the info you wish to save off of your old Harddrive, first. This is if the harddrive is not bad, of course.

You will also need the Restoration Disk/s to install a new Harddrive, if you are going to just replace the harddrive with a new one. (Larger, or replacing a bad harddrive)

If you do not have the Restoration Disk/s you can obtain them from HP Support.
In the US call 1-800-474-6836
24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Disk/s are free. Shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have the Serial Number from the back of your computer tower handy to give to the representative.
(White Service Tag. S/N is Serial Number)

If you are not in the US, here is the Worldwide Support contact page,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

If you are going to install a new operating system, per se Windows, (Windows 7?), you may have to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order set the first boot device to CDROM, if the disk does not automatically load.

Does the HP Pavilian 515N have a restore to orignal settings installed on the harddrive?


Generally HPs do have a factory restore. START, search for RESTORE and it should find the utility if there is one.

I have just bought a new 3 in 1, and wish to install it, but at present i have a lexmark printer installed on my computer. How do i delete the lexmark to install the hp, or can i have 2 printers installed...


You can have as many printers as you want installed on a single pc. Some printers use a parallel port which uses a 25 pin on the back of your pc and others use USB which most computers have 2-4 of. If it's a usb connection just plug it in and your computer should detect it and ask you if you want to install it. When you go to print you'll have the option of using either printer.

I bought a HP M8430F and would like to install a 2nd hard drive


By set up differently you mean and ATA or SATA difference? That shoudll not matter as long as  the windows are alread on the first harddrive of the HP  Since your drive that you want to move is the second drive and does not contain the operating syastem you should be able to just phisically move the drive from one machine to the other. The new computer will see and install the drive as "FOund ne hardware" and asign it a letter. It will not disturb the data.
