Question about HP Compaq nx9030 Notebook

Lost adapter to connect hard drive to GQ rx 7330 Laptop.

I trashed {literally) the hard drive from my RX 7330 Laptop. Took a drive out of my non-functioning T23 Thinkpad and tried to put it in the RX 7330. Connector is different? I called my son the geek. He said to get the old hard dirve out of the trash and take the carrier and adapter off it. God that sounds easy, except.....
I have been looking for an adapter for five months. HP manual shows the part so I don't think I am chasing a ghost of Xmas past. Where can I get one or what can I do?

To recover your data before you install Windows - remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to the USB hard drive adapter then connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see the USB hard drive adapter and hard drive as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and files on the hard drive and copy the data files to the computer and to backup your files.

When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

Click on this link to view what you need. Click Here. Are you not able to use the original hard drive adapter? (it comes off by pulling it away from the hard drive) It is connected to the hard drive caddy and both should have been present when you took the first hard drive out.

Laptop will not come on. Indicates that it is connected to power source although it is loose. What should I do? Is it the motherboard or the d/c adapter? I have a Gateway 7330 GZ.


Try another 19volts adapter. If problem still the same and the laptop not powering-on, there's something wrong with the motherboard circuit and not the DC JACK cause it indicates that you connect an adapter.

Keep or trash it


Trash it unless you intend buying another one and same model.
You can salvage some parts, the RAM modules and the hard disk.
Put the hard disk into a USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external hard drive.
