You open the case and remove it.
Replace it with a new one.
I think this is what you are asking.
Replace it with the same kind--if it's an IDE drive, you'll need a new IDE drive. SATA drives need to be replaced with like kind.
Size doesn't usually matter except in an older system.
Once you place a new drive in the system, you'll need to run the recovery disk that came with the computer or get a copy of the same version of Windows and use the code that should be on the case.

I installed a new RAM for my pc COMPAQ Evo D500 and when I started heard a long beap sound and system didnot turned on


It is plug and play, it should automatically detect the new RAM with no extra needed work or installation procedures. Remove the memory and reboot, you will get the beep again. Reinstall and reboot again hopefully this is all that needs to be done. Is this new or used RAM?
