WD 500G HDD suddenly un-readable; changed name to local disk, says I need to format in order to use it. I have tons of important stuff on there.


Could you confirm if the problem with the drive not being recognized is a problem with the USB cable? I have a 250GB passport and it worked fine with my XP. Once I decided to reformat it to NTFS and tried to do so by plugging into my new windows7 laptop the problems started.

I want to change the harddisk, but I can not get the computer opened in order to so. Any suggestions?


In order to change the hard drive on this laptop you are going to have the remove the battery and the keyboard because the hard drive is directly under the keys. When you remove the battery you will see 3 screws, remove them. Open the screen and flip the laptop over to see, in the battery compartment, the keyboard release access. Insert a flexible tool and press inward to release the keyboard. Flip the laptop over and gently lift up the top part of the keyboard until it releases. You will see you have the hard drive there. Unscrew it, remove the bracket and replace the hard drive. Be careful not to loose any screws and never force a screw back into place.

I have a hp4345mfp on the display it is showing a error internal disk not found we do not have a hard drive can we turn off the hard drive thank you my email is


All HP MFP's have an internal harddrive and will only function as printers if that drive fails. You need to replace the harddrive. It is mounted on the formatterwhich is accessed on the back. First remove the sliding panel and then open the metal door. These are right where the fax and data cables plug in. You can replace the drive with almost any 2.5" IDE harddrive that you can find. The standard model will be either a 20, 30 or 40 gig, I have installed up to 160 gig drives with no problem. Do not order a drive from HP as they will charge several hundred dollars for a drive you should be able to get at any computer shop for less than $75.00. Be cautious removing the drive from the plastic mounts as they are easy to break.

Ya sounds like the hard drive has died or there is a interface problem since you suffered from water damage. you may be able to get data off the hard drive by using a external hard drive connector but it may or may not work.

I want to take some programmes my hard drive and use them in my external hard drive.


There are essentially two types of data that are written to a harddrive.
1. Programs (such as Microsoft Excel) 2. Data that are created by the Programs (XLS files)
In order to "move" PROGRAMS, they have to be first uninstalled from the original harddrive; then reinstalled onto your external harddrive.
In order to move DATA, simply do a copy and paste from the original drive to the new drive.

Instructions for installing a toshiba hard drive MK103GAS in a Sony Vaio laptop


Step 1 - Remove Screws Flip the entire laptop over and remove the battery.617_bottom.jpg
There are a total of 4 screws you need to remove as depicted in the red circles.617_unscrew.jpg
Begin removing one at a time.617_unscrew2.jpg Step 2 - Removing the Keyboard After you remove the four screws from the bottom chassis, flip the laptop over and take a look at the keyboard area.
Now look carefully at the top corners of the keyboard, there is a tiny little button that you need to push in order to release the keyboard. 617_keyboard1.jpg
Push it inwards with your screw driver or finger. 617_keyboard2.jpg
Push both the release keys while pulling the entire keyboard towards you. 617_keyboard3.jpg
Gently lift up the keyboard towards you, while flipping it over. 617_keyboard4.jpg
The keyboard has been removed!
Step 3 - Removing the Palmrest Looking inside, you will need to remove three screws as depicted in the red circles below.617_unscrewhandrest.jpg Next, gently slide the entire palm rest chassis towards you.617_handrestremove.jpg Before you lift the palm rest, notice the delicate ribbon cable on the underside. Then lift it upwards, flipping it over. Be careful not to rip the ribbon cable that's connected!617_handsetremoved.jpgYou now have access to the hard drive!
Step 4 - Removing the Hard Drive Remove three screws from the cage holding the hard drive as depicted below in the red circles.617_unscrewthree.jpg Next, gently remove the SATA cable from the hard drive. It may require a bit of effort to pull the SATA cable from the hard drive, just try to be gentle. Note that there is tape over the SATA cable underneath the hard drive making the SATA cable more difficult to pull out.617_removesata.jpg
Be careful in this step not to rip the ribbon.

The hard drive is now removed!
The next step is to just remove the stock hard drive from its cage be removing the screws on the edges and replace it with the hard drive of your choice. Carefully screw it all back in place, slide the keyboard back in and power on your system! 617_hardrives.jpg
