Replacing the hard drive involves the following process:
Turn off and unplug the computer
Remove the two screws from the left panel (facing the front of the tower)
Slide the left panel back and to the left to remove it
Unplug both power and data from the hard drive
Unscrew the hard drive (You may need also remove the right panel to get to additional screws)
Slide hard drive out
Slide in new hard drive.
Screw in new hard drive in approximately the same fashion as previous hard drive was screwed in
Plug in power and data
Plug computer in and boot
However, if this is your main or only hard drive, you will need to install your Operating system and all of your software and files from scratch. It may be possible to preserve them, but that's often risky and requires a bit more work. If this is your main hard drive, you probably want to consult an expert on having the old drive contents moved to the new drive.

If you have a hard drive that crashed and can't live with the thought of starting over .. there is one last thing you can do to get your info from the disk!!
FREEZE IT... YES.. i said to put your comp. hard drive in the freezer...
First you need a ESD bag (antistatic bag) You are going to need a new hard drive anyways. When you get your new hard drive. it will come with a ESD bag over it..
Put the old hard drive in the bag... Put the new drive in your comp. Put the hard drive in the freezer over night.. 24hours in the freezer = about 30mins run time... might get more time out of it if you freeze it longer but ... you will just have to test it
put the hard drive in and test it... if it works ( like it should ) you can use the old hard drive as a backup and keep freezing it to get the info off.
File corruption can happen when power is cut from the computer. Put a
Windows cd into the drive and load up the recovery console, then run
CHKDSK. If you don't have a windows cd, take the hard drive out of the
emachine and connect it to a working comp. Then you can run chkdsk.exe
from inside windows to fix corrupted sectors.
If your computer is powering on, that is an entirely different question. Be specific.
Your PC is telling you that it cannot recognize your Hard Drive. You need to order a new Hard Drive. They are very cheap. Then you will need to re-install Windows. All of your data may be lost, but you can bring your Hard Drive to a data recovery center or PC Store to see if the data can be retrieved.
Hard Drive is probably dead so you will need to purchase a new one.
This link will take you to Dell there you can make a boot disk you might have to change boot order to floppy drive first. This disk will give you the option to format fat32 or NTSF. Run fdisk to check the how your disk is partitioned.
This could be a few things though if you have already checked the memory and HD. The next thing I would tell you is that you should check the cpu. Also make sure that everything in the BIOS is set to the default settings when you start it.
Hi, Thank you for contacting Fixya. If its loading operating system then there is no problem with hard drive. Its absolutely a software problem. Please reinstall a fresh copy of Operating system i.e., Windows Xp / Vista whatever. and install the proper drivers for the system. Hopefully it should work. Again if same problem occur then you need to check the RAM. I mean is the system re-boots again and again hten clean the RAM slots or insert the RAM in other RAM slot. There may be some dust inside the slot. Try these steps. Hopefully it should work. Thank you......
