HP's web site has a nice instruction manual how to do this. You can download it here. (Look at page 8 onward)

Just a general note: be gentle when you remove the cables.Rocking it for and back until it comes out of the jack is the right thing to do. Also: All af them are designed in a way so they only fit in a specific direction. So before you plug them back in, take a good look at the plug and the jack to determine the correct way.

1) Computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal fame of the open computer case to relieve your body of Static.
Also before you take new hardware components out of their anti-static bags, or boxes.

Replacing the Harddrive, (Hard Disk drive),

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00639788&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1818050&tmp_track_link=ot_search

The Harddrive is a SATA harddrive. Uses a SATA 7-pin data cable, and a 15-pin SATA power cable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

Top right photo shows the SATA data cable connector, and cable.
Top right photo below it shows a typical SATA data header (Connector) on a motherboard.

Typical SATA power cable, and it's respective connector,

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

NOTE*
IF, your SATA harddrive has a connection for a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable, (Misnomered as Molex), AND a connection for a SATA power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.
It will Burn Up the Harddrive if you use both.

If you are putting a new Harddrive in, you will need to have backed up, (Copied) the info you wish to save off of your old Harddrive, first. This is if the harddrive is not bad, of course.

You will also need the Restoration Disk/s to install a new Harddrive, if you are going to just replace the harddrive with a new one. (Larger, or replacing a bad harddrive)

If you do not have the Restoration Disk/s you can obtain them from HP Support.
In the US call 1-800-474-6836
24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Disk/s are free. Shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have the Serial Number from the back of your computer tower handy to give to the representative.
(White Service Tag. S/N is Serial Number)

If you are not in the US, here is the Worldwide Support contact page,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

If you are going to install a new operating system, per se Windows, (Windows 7?), you may have to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order set the first boot device to CDROM, if the disk does not automatically load.

Make sure your computer is turned off.

Open up the case.

The hard drive will be hooked up with two cables, a power cable and a data cable.

Unplug both cables, unscrew the mounting screws, then pull the hard drive out.

this could be an indicator of a damaged hard drive. It can also be caused by not booting from the CD itself. ensure your booting from the CD. if you are, it appears that the file structure on your harddrive is damaged and needs to be replaced..

check your user manual for booting from the cd, its usually pressing F9 when the system boots (where it ask you to press del to enter setup, you can also enter the setup and set the first boot device as CD.
