Trying to start Lenovo laptop but just the "Lenovo" word shows up & nothing happens


Try to remove your hard drive. The company I work for uses mainly lenovo laptops and we have found if a hard drive goes faulty it will hang at this LENOVO screen. if you remove it and it progresses to the bios (it won't load windows since the hard drive is not in the laptop) you might need to consider replacing the hard drive and reinstalling windows.

Delete backups


Speeding up laptop has many factors involved, hard drive space, amount of RAM, CPU and/or age of your laptop. If hard drive is limited in space then clearing space on hard drive may help the laptop cache things. Adding RAM may help and upgrading the CPU may help as well. Laptops are limited in the things that you can do, other than, replacing the laptop itself.

I can't seem to remove my hard drive. can anyone help me?


1. Unplug laptop from AC power.

2. Remove battery; Look at laptop manual if you don't know how to do this.

3. Flip the laptop over so the bottom of the laptop is facing you.

4. There should be a rectangular bay on the back of the laptop that houses the hard drive. See picture for an example. Your laptop will likely look different but the picture should help give you an idea.

5. Remove the screw(s) that secures the plastic plate covering the hard drive bay; there's usually only one or two screws to remove.

6. You will now see the hard drive. Look for any screws that are securing the hard drive to the laptop. Remove the screw(s). Not all laptops will have screws securing the hard drive to the laptop but some do, and I'm guessing this may be your problem.

7. Slide the hard drive horizontally away from the interior (middle) and toward the exterior (outside) of the laptop. The hard drive is plugged into the laptop and this action will unplug the hard drive.

8. That's it - you're done. Just reverse the steps to replace the hard drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Gateway w650i Physically removing a hard drive my laptop help


I ran into this same problem on the exact model laptop. The solution is to remove the two screws that are in the laptop hard drive on the right... Those are obvious... The next step is to remove the two little white space fillers that are to the left of the laptop hard drive on the furthest side from where you removed the screws. That allowed the entire hard drive to now slide to the left toward where those place/space holders were. (don't lose those white pieces) Once you have the hard drive slide all the way left away from the connectors that were holding it in place you can slide up one side of the Hard Drive and easily pull it out!

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.

Hard Disk upgrade


Figured this out...
1)  Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2)  Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3)  Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4)  Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5)  Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1)  Flip the caddy over 2)  Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3)  Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4)  Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

Hitachi DK23EB-40 HDD


Hi,

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.
