How to replace the hard drive on an emachines model EL 1352 G

Take off the side panel, then remove the front panel by leveraging the black plastic clips that hold it to the metal chassis. Under the front panel will be the screws holding the dvd drive caddy in place which when removed reveals the hard drive.

How do I replace the hard drive on my emachines PC/

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.

No lights on cd/dvd

the part you are missing is going into your computer's bios to change the boot sequence to CD/DVD first so that it would read the dvd. The current setting is probably network since you are seeing the PXE failure

Can the lg dvd rewriter gsa-e10n be used as an external info store as well? if so how many gb? thank you!

No dear. External Hard disks, pendrives etc does it for you. A CD/DVDRW plays only CDs & DVDs + burns CDs & DVDs. Please send me your feedback & vote to motivate us & to help us help you.

Trying to remove panels on case e4036

Hi, try checking inside the case where you have removed the panel from. On some computers you need to unclip some plastic clips and withdraw the front panel, this may also have the drives attached to a cradle. If that is not the way, then look closely at the drive cradle and see if there is a metel clip on it, if so press this and swing the cradle out. If you do not have any luck get back to us with a description of what you see inside the box. Regards mistyman
