How to remove a bad hard drive on a 3300 laptop?

Hi, I have a 3300 Series laptop, and the hard drive went bad. I purchased a replacement drive online, but when I went to replace the old one I realized that I had no information about that on the manual, and I can't find any schematics online for this laptop. I'm hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions, or perhaps an illustrated page that shows how to open the machine and how to get to the hard drive on that particular model. If not that, maybe someone has the schematic that shows how the machine is assembled. Thank you so much!

The hard drive is damaged and beyond repair. To get your laptop operating again, purchase a new hard drive, install Windows on the hard drive, plus the laptop's device drivers and your programs.

I plug my WD passport hard drive in my laptop but i can't find the files inside it. There's always a ticking sound everytime I plug it or unplug it. please help...


I understand the you hear a ticking sound from the Hard disk.

I am sorry to say that it is not a good sign if you hear a ticking sound from the hard disk. It means the header is bad. I short the hard is crashed. At this point you may need to contact the manufacturer for a replacement if it is in warranty or had to purchase a new one.

Thanks and regards,

Replacing a broken hard drive

Nope, the C series pre-dates SATA and there is no room for an adaper in the drive bay. Latitudes started supporting SATA in the later D series models. (My D600 was PATA but my D620 is SATA).

There are still plenty of PATA drives available. I recommend finding one with 7200RPM made by Seagate, Western Digital or Toshiba if you can. Hitachi and IBM have always burnt me.

You can always look up your Service Tag at for more details on your system.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Hitachi DK23EB-40 HDD


Basically what you have posted covers all that you need to know and do. The only issue would be the capacity in Gb of the new HD. Most currently available are far too big for your laptop. What you need to get is any 2.5" HD that is identical in size or just slightly bigger than what you used to have. Three reasons for this: 1) your motherboard may not recognize the newer/bigger HDs and therefore you would probably encounter problems even at the BIOS/CMOS stage; 2) the power requirement of the newer HDs may not be compatible with what your laptop can supply; and 3) the heat generated by newer HDs is considerably higher but your laptop was designed to accommodate older models only.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
