Transcend 650 HDD not working Suddenly, blue light is on but not showing up Drive in mycomputer, disk management. I have gone thru so many solutions but every one says select your drive fix it or go t


Try removing the Actual drive from the caddy, As the caddies are the weak point in all external HDDs the control hardware is not very robust. This will also tell you if the Spinner (Hard drive Mechanical Unit) is working or not. You can then connect it using a dock or a cable to the motherboard.

The hard drive can be easily accessed from the bottom of the laptop. Simply remove the hard drive door, remove four screws securing the hard drive caddy, disconnect the hard drive from the connector on the motherboard and remove it from the laptop.
After that remove all screws securing the hard drive to the caddy and transfer the caddy to the new hard drive.
Hope this helps, if so rate the solution

Hard disk faulty how to replace


The online guide is here:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/7994162/Compaq-Presario-M2000-Maintenance-and-Service-Guide
I would go to (page 2-5 of the manual above) first and run a Hard Drive test from the Tools menu, before replacing.

Then go to replacement procedures (Page 5-7 of the manual) and it will instruct you, it is very simple, usually taking out two screws, removing the caddy (plastic holder). You then unscrew the old hard drive from the caddy (four screws) and then screw in the new hard drive (four again), slide it in, screw the caddy in (two screws) and voila', your new hard drive is installed.
This does NOT include instructions on how to backup your files, re-install your software or anything OTHER than replacing the physical hard drive.
You will need to format the new drive and install an operating system and software.
If you need further instructions, please ask.

Specifically where is the hard drive for the toughbook cf- 27 - i've looked all over


Flip the laptop over and slide the 2 tabs that are near the carry handle to the unlocked position. This will allow the metal cover on the underside of the laptop to hinge up and be removed.

With the laptop upside down and the carry handle facing you, you should see the battery on the left of the laptop. On the right, there is a silver case about 4 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. This is the hard drive caddy.

To remove /this/ part, carefully push the connecting cable towards the battery until it smoothly disconnects from the hard drive caddy. Remove the caddy from the laptop. Using a small phillips screwdriver, remove the 3 small screws which hold the top of the caddy on. Remove the top, and you will see the hard drive.

As a note - be sure you do not remove the gel lining. This is 99.9% of the hard drive's shock protection. When you remove the hard drive, the cable should come out of the caddy as well. Put the new cable on a new hard drive (HDD must be smaller than 65,536MB), put the new hard drive into the caddy with cable attached, make sure the cable assembly is fitted into the caddy slot, replace the caddy cover, replace the screws, replace the caddy into the laptop. Then, make sure you connect the cable from the laptop PC board to the caddy cable assembly. Replace cover, turn on computer, and set up your Operating System (if needed).

Tryed to turn laptop on and now it is saying operating systems not found


Please check your Hard Disk Drive in the BIOS is still functioning. At the BIOS Booting Setup the should be ON to boot your Operating System.
Try and try again.
Good luck!

Hard Disk upgrade


Figured this out...
1)  Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2)  Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3)  Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4)  Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5)  Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1)  Flip the caddy over 2)  Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3)  Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4)  Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

Power on after HD replacement.


If you changed nothing apart from the hard drive I would remove it and then try restarting the laptop. If you get an OS not found message then check the pins on the hard drive (and caddy if there is one).
