If you turn the computer upside down there will be a plastic entry point that is a bit larger than a cigarette packet. If you are unsure your best option would be to take it to a computer store and buy a laptop hard drive cover that converts your laptop hard drive to usb. "usb2.0 hdd External Box" about $20 remove and insert hard drive to new case about $10
Now you can access your laptop hard drive easily and cheaply from any computer and when finished you can put it back into your laptop

How to remove my hard drive hp pavilion dv1000


Please follow these steps.

1) First of all, first unplug the power and also remove the battery.
2) Flip over your laptop. Make sure that when you are looking at the laptop bottom that the battery slot is located on the top portion.
3) On the lower right portion is the hard drive bay. You would notice two small screws on its left side. Loosen them up.
4) Lift the left side up and swing it to the right and remove the cover.
5) You would then notice a plastic or mylar tab on the left side lift the hard drive using that tab.
6) Slide the hard drive towards the left and it will be removed from the hard drive bay.

And that is it. That is how you remove your hard drive.

The arm that controls the head has malfunctioned. Your hard drive is probably toast. The more you run it though the more chance you have of not being able to recover the data on it. I have a Tip and Trick for trying to recover some of the data. You can read it here.
Please share it with your friends.

Hp Pavillion dv6000 has disappeared says I do not have one


I trust your are referring to your hard drive.
Sounds like either your hard drive was damaged or has a virus which wiped out information in the partition.
Hard drives can be damaged if the computer is dropped or is handled roughly.
I suspect that your data is lost in either case.
You can try using your recovery CD to restore your operating system and drivers. This will work if your computer had a virus.
If it doesn't work, then your only option is to buy another hard drivve.

Transfer data from a dead laptop to a new laptop


Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.

HP pavillion laptop suddenly shutsdown and it is not power on!


This is a known issue from HP. HP found that some notebooks are having problem with the mother board and HP recalled such type of notebooks for free serivce.

If your notebook model is found in the below weblink, you can contact HP for free mail in service.

Comming to the data in the hard drive. The data is safe and you can backup your entire data in the below process.

You can use this hard drive case and backup the data on any other laptop or desktop either at home, office or any other friends place without opening the system.

You just need to remove the hard drive from the laptop and put the laptop hard drive in the USB hard drive case and then connect it to USB port.

And the case is available in any computer stores near you.

HP Pavillion Programs freezing


Suggest restoring the system to factory settings. You will lose all of your data so back it up first.

Restore is either on disks or on recovery partition of hard drive. If you have recovery disks put first one in and reboot computer.

When the computer starts you should see an option to hit F10 for System Restore/Recovery. Hit F10, click advanced settings and choose Destructive Restore. Follow the prompts.

Will need to reload all programs after restore is done that did not come with computer such as Office.

Hope this helps.
Thanks!
