Hard Drive Crash - how do I disassemble my PCMP-30 to replace it?

Unfortunately Sharp seems to have locked up the internal hard drive on my ACTIUS PCMP-30 like a vault.  I want to replace it myself.  Any clue on the steps I need to take to get at the hard drive, replace it, and reassemble my PC?

check in your bios and see if your hard drive is showing. If not remove the hard drive and connect it again.

My USB port on the hard drive seems to have broken off inside. What can I do? There is another DC port next to it, is there any way of connecting the hard drive to my laptop via this?


Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Purchase a new "empty" enclosure, for about $30, and "transplant" your disk-drive into the new enclosure. All your files will be accessible.

The machine was working fine... I closed the lid (which suspends it), and when I re-opened it it would not wake up, so I shut down with power button. It will not boot now. I can hear the hard drive spin,...


it is not a bios failure but a hard drive failure
the pick up arm for the disc is not moving
replace the disc hard drive with a solid state (SSHD) that has no moving parts

DRIVE MAKES CLICKING SOUNDS AND EVENTUALLY CAUSES SYSTEM TO CRASH


The only thing you can do is replace the drive. You might be able to burn some data to a CD or DVD or external hard drive before the replacement, but it cannot be guaranteed.

Removing files from a dead lap top


If the computer is dead the only way to recover the files would be to remove the hdd & install it as a secondary hdd in another system in order to copy the files. After you are sure all your data is copied you could then either reformatt & keep as a storage drive in other system or remove. You'll need the proper cables as most laptop hdd's just slide into a built in port on the laptop's mb. Hope this helps.

Do you know how to flash the BIOS? This could trigger it. Are you sure that it can accept the hard drive. Does the hard drive have jumpers on it? This should be on master if it does have one. Although not common on laptop hard drives it could have one.

Sharp actius mp30 hard drive replacement?


It is a standard 2.5" IDE laptop drive. You have to dis-assemble to mother board. Easy to do if you are comfortable with internals. You have to remove a million screws to get case apart. All visible on bottom, also internal pc card next to memory card has 2 screws. Don't forget back side hinge screws and edge screws on upper part of lower shell visible in back and when dvd/cd is pulled (2 bottom screws hold player in. The shell come apart easily little force no tricky pressure or lock taps. Where it hinges on back top side next to LCD screen lift gently straight up this is where it is most resistant. A few ribbon cables and 2 wire cables to disconnect. After lower case top is off a few screws holding mother board (arrows) needs to be removed to lift motherboard. Drive is connected to mother board by ribbon cable lift pry gently up to release it. Drive is held in by 4 screws. Good luck. If you do not want to do this just get a 2.5" usb drive. You can buy the drives and external case or by already made ones e.g. WD passport.

BTW I am looking for an actius mp-30 casing, mine has damage.

If you have any questions post to contact me
