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!

    Hey Bogdan,

    Thanks so much for your reply. I actually found someone's step-by-step process (with pictures) on how to open up the machine and getting to the hard drive cradle. I think I'm set. BUT, I'm no Guru so I'm going to keep you in mind should I have issues with this. Thanks again!

You cannot replace the motherboard with a different one because laptop motherboards are not inter-changeable between models.
You need to purchase a new laptop, but you can remove the hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive case then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfers.

Hi Thanks for your question
The best and the easiest solution to this is replace the hard drive and install fresh windows. There is nothing wrong with computer itself. It's bad hard drive not letting Operation System Load.

Error Msg: A disk read error occured.

WEll i don't know how they fixed it before but if you get a disc read error then it's a bad hard drive. They may have gotten it to read again but it's still a bad hard drive and needs to be replaced and a new one put in. Don't know if they charged you for a bad hard drive before but it doesn't sound like they replaced it. Get a new drive and re-install your operating system and it should be fine.

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.

How to replacy its harddrive

It is pretty easy to replace a lappy's hard drive.. ensure you get the right one... Then it is simply matter of releasing & removing the Hard Drive from the laptop and then simply "Plug In" the New HD. After this it must be "Formatted" "Partitioned" and have the "Operating System" installed.. ya good to go. A service manual would also help.. I think I have found one below..
