I removed one on a Gateway ZX4800-02. Remove two screws by the usb ports on the back. then remove the plastic piece covering the usb ports on the back. This will expose the HDD. Now to make it easier. remove the four screws holding the support bracket and remove support bracket. remove the three screws holding the HDD located up, right, and left. Now disconnect the HDD cable by pull it to the right by the connector. DO NOT PULL THE CABLES. My friend does that by habit all the time and it drives me crazy.
HDD should come out easy. Just remove the metal cage covering the HDD and Replace. Reverse order for reassembly.
Now does anyone know how to get off the damn front bezel!>!!?!?!?!? I can't figure it out.
Whenever mine wouldn't read disks i'd hit it a few times on the top face (lower left side above dvd drive), then turn it back on to see if it would read it. Sometimes i had to do it 5-10 times... and eventually it worked again for a few months.....
if that doesn't work I'd Call xbox 360 support and see if they will fix it for free (they are fixing the 'flashing red lights" error for free right now... possibly your disc read error). if they refuse to fix it for free and you don't feel like paying...... wrap the damn thing in a towel and power it on (keep it in eyesight as you don't want the towel to catch fire)...do it for like 10min-30min whenever you geta chance.... eventually the processor will over heat (due to lack of airflow and you will have three flashing red lights when you turn it on... and your 360 won't work at all.... (and microsfot WILL FIX THAT PROBLEM FOR FREE... and hopefully fix your drive too ... wink wink)
... of course... .wrapping your 360 in a towel (known as the "towel trick" will harm your xbox more... and i'm not taking responsibility for what happens to you or your xbox) might not be the best idea.... but it may just get you a free repair =)
Hi, we had the same problem... Bought a new lamp and then encountered
the power light blinking repeatedly problem. After much frustration and
anquish, we finally got it to work again... The way I did it was, take
out the power cord from the back, then hold down the power switch and
re-insert the cord. Somehow it made a difference to the unit and it
powered back up all fine.. Cos we heard the fan come to life properly.
Cant guarantee it'll work for everyone but give it a try all the same.
Hi, I found this site today cos I had a similar problem. To cut a long story short I found a slot on the bottom of the machine, below the disc tray, that has a white lever in it. After removing the power source I moved the lever to the side and the tray opened manually so I could remove the disc. It seems It was a duff DVDR as other discs now work fine. Good luck !
