Replace hard drive


Power down the eMachines computer and unplug it from the power outlet. Remove the left side panel from the computer case by removing the two screws or thumbscrews in the back and sliding the panel toward the back of the computer. Should the panel not move, check to make sure that there isn't a latch or switch on the rear of the computer case that needs to be slid downward in order to remove the panel. Not all cases will have this feature. Locate the hard drive; it should be in a 3 1/2-inch drive bay located beneath the computer's CD and DVD drives. If your computer has a floppy disc drive, the hard drive will most likely be located in a bay beneath it. Check the position of the floppy drive to make sure that you know which 3 1/2-inch drive it is. You should notice two cables plugging into the back of the hard drive; one of these is the power cable that comes from the power supply, and the other is a data cable that is connected to the computer's motherboard. Unplug the power and data cables from the rear of the hard drive, leaving nothing else plugged in to it. Remove the screws that hold it into its mounting bay, setting them aside until you need them for the new hard drive. Slide the old hard drive out of the mounting bay, being careful not to drop it or hit it against any of the motherboard's components. Set the drive aside and pick up your new hard drive, then slide the new drive into the same bay that you just took the old drive out of. Line the small holes in the side of the drive up with the holes in the mounting bay. Secure the new drive by screwing in the screws that you had previously removed, then plug in the power and data cables that you had unplugged from the previous drive. The cables will only plug in when oriented correctly, so you won't have to worry about accidentally plugging them in wrong. Once the cables have been plugged in you can put the side panel back onto the case and plug your eMachines computer in once again. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQToRwe74P8

How to remove disk drive


The front of your computer is the Front Panel. The Front Panel needs to be removed, along with the Side Panel, to replace an optical disk drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Gateway Support > LX6810-01 Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2308

In the list click on -> User Guides
In this list click on the blue -> Gateway Hardware Reference Guide
This is a Zip file. If you do not know how to 'unzip' a Zip file, please state in a Comment, and I will guide you.

Page 45: Opening the case

FIRST <-
A) Unplug the computer from power.
B) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Looking at the Front of the computer the LEFT Side Panel removes.
There are two Philips head screws along the edge of the Side Panel, on the back. One towards the Top, one towards the Bottom.
These are removed.

The Side Panel is then slid back with the 'finger bump' on the panel, until it stops. Then the top is brought out, and the Side Panel removed.

Removing the Front Panel: Page 47
Look towards the inside, and towards the Front.
See the 3 black plastic tabs, sticking in slots of the metal framework?

One towards the Top, one in the Middle, and one towards the Bottom.
These tabs are gently squeezed in towards the inside. Towards the motherboard.

These tabs are formed out of the plastic of the Front Panel. They have a hook on the end. The hooked end catches on the side of the slot, in the metal framework of the computer case.

Once the hooked end is moved to the center of the slot, the tab is free.
Ease the Top tab in, then follow with the Middle tab. The Front panel should start to come off.
Now move the Bottom tab in.
The Front Panel will now swing towards the Right.

USE CARE as it is NOT stated, or shown, if the main wires are going to the Front Panel, OR the Front Panel is merely a cover.

You DO NOT want to pull the wires off of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.
If the Front Panel has wires attached, and is not just a cover, use care, and set it to the side.

[The Front Panel header, is the area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel connect to ]

You will see two Philips head mounting screws, along the rail in the optical drive bay cage, that hold the optical drive in, that you wish to remove.

Remove these screws, keep track of them. (They like to roll off of the table, lol!)
Slide the drive forward a little, then holding onto the drive, remove the power cable, and data cable. If it is the main optical drive, (And you have two drives), you may also have to remove a small audio cable.

Now slide the drive out of the front.

Harddrive removal: Page 52
Remove the power cable, and the data cable.

[For a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, you just ease the connector out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

BY THE CONNECTOR, and NOT the wires.
For a SATA power cable there may be a small lock tab on top, that you depress down with a thumbnail,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata ]

The Harddrive has a metal 'box' cage around it. The harddrive cage.
On the back of the cage, (Towards back of computer), there is a thumbscrew located at the top of the cage.

This thumbscrew is removed, and the Harddrive cage is slid out, towards the back of the computer.
Remove the screws that hold the Harddrive in the harddrive cage.
Then remove the Harddrive.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Trying to remove the cdrom(hardware) from the case, Have the side off and front face plate. Looking I see no screws, or other method of securing it in place. I lift the locking lever but it will not...


I'm not familiar with the Pavilion but I would try to look at the sides between the drive and the mounting frame and see if there are any spring clips. If so, you may be able to release them by pushing a small screwdriver along each mounting rail. Good luck!

I am trying to find were to put the new hard drive in the compaq presario 5000


There are several extra bays internal. You need proper data/and power cables, possibly a "Y" splitter to give you access to an additional power tap. Also about 4 small machine mounting screws and or spacer shims if the HD is smaller than the available bay. The HD does not necessarily need to be mounted through the front bt the 5000 has removable bezels that exposed the xtra bays.

I have vaio desktop, my sony dvd player stop working, any help is grewatly appreciated


Most likely the drive is bad. They are fairly simple to replace. Just go down to your favorite Big Box store and buy a DVD drive off the shelf.
Assuming this is no longer under warranty of any kind, you can just take the side panel off and look and see whether it's got a big, wide "ribbon cable" going to it or if it's got a small, narrow cable going to it.

If it's a big, wide cable, you'll need an IDE DVD ROM. Those can be had almost anywhere, but I personally like NewEgg.com for this sort of thing. If you are in a hurry, you can go down to your local Wal-Mart or computer store and pick one up there, but you'll pay more for it, in all likelihood. If it's a small, narrow cable going to it, then it's a newer SATA drive.

I would not spend more than about $20-25 for a DVD ROM drive. You can pick up a DVD burner for about $50. Again, make sure that you figure out of it's IDE or SATA as it makes a difference.

Once you have the replacement drive, turn off your computer, unplug the power cord and push the power button to discharge the capacitors. I recommend the following procedures be done on a hard-surface to reduce static build-up.

There are probably 4 screws holding the old drive into the case, two on each side. Unscrew them and unplug all cables from the old drive. Slide the old drive out and slide the new one in and connect the cables back where they were on the old drive. They should only go in one way, but if the data cable (a flat wide multi-wire cable with a single color stripe most likely) will go in either way, you typically want the colored stripe to go towards the power connector. Typically they are "keyed" either by a bump on the top or a missing hole in one spot to make it impossible to put the cable on wrong. Be careful as it's easy to bend the pins when removing or replacing the cable. BE GENTLE!!!

Once you have the new drive in position, use the screws you took out of the old drive to secure the new drive in place and prevent it from sliding around. Then, power it on and wait for the new drive to be detected.

How do you replace the hard dirive on Sony Viao all-in-one computer model VGC-LS25E


The machine comes apart, although it is more complicated than a normal desktop. The back plastic comes off in two stages, and you will have to remove all of the small black screws around the perimeter. There is also one screw under a rubber plug/sticker in the middle. Go slow, take your time, and it does come apart. Once the plastic is off you'll have a large metal piece to remove, with HDD engraved in it and a few different size screws around it. You will have to pull the ethernet connector from its mount to remove it with its wire when you remove the large metal piece. Then the hard drive is mounted under the large metal piece in a normal drive caddy. Be careful not to damage the copper tape between the drive and the caddy. Note that it is a full size 3.5 incs SATA 7200 RPM drive. Good luck.

My CD ROM/DVD on my computer drive wont open? Why not?


Try either right clicking on the CD drive icon in My Computer and see if it opens, of not put a straightened paperclip into the small hole on the CD drive face and push into open it. Does the light flash or does it make any noise. I would make sure that it isn't jammed by trying the first two. If all is good, then go into Device Control Panel->System->Device manager->DVD\CD-Rom Drives and see if your drive is showing. If it is then right click and click Uninstall and then restart your system. It should find new hardware and reinstall the drivers for your driver if it is working properly.
