Usually there is a quickconnect button on the bottom of the laptop. The drive and drive bay slips out. You will need to unscrew the drive from the bay housing.

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.


Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.


I use a cheap 2.5" USB 2.0 case that has the correct connection ie. SATA or IDE. Connect your laptop drive to that. Then connect to a regular PC that has enough space to hold an "immage" copy of your hard drive

I would normally take out the old drive and make an image of it using Acronis or an older version of norton ghost.


I would then put the image onto the new drive and then place the new drive in the laptop. if done correctly your laptop and windows wont even know it was changed.

Once I am sure the new drive is OK i format tho old one put it in the external case and hey presto you have some more storage that you can move between computers.

Hello sir I bought pioneer hdz606bd in Singapore I using in India but my player have problem I attach photos please reply tks


I think your DVD player has the wrong regio code. Be aware you only can change that once. So not switch the regio code from 1 to 5 and a few weeks later from 5 to 1 or 4.
Check the manual, how you can change the regio code. If you put in a DVD from Singapore, it should play the disk. The same if you burn your own DVD regio free. It should play the disk too.

I want to use Toshiba HDD2191 took from old laptop and put as USB box for an external Hard disk, but window vista can't recognize it, shall I search and download disk's driver? tks


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start or you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
hope this helps

From the sounds of it you may have to just reinstall windows. If you do not have the recovery disk you can purchase them from HP for 5.oo USD.

Please format the disk. You will get the disk space back. If your new pc is running windows NT, 2000, XP, or Vista, while formatting keep the file system NTFS.

Acer Desktop won't boot after recovery


Why not use your new hard drive as a storage disc. Reconnect your old hard drive as it was before. Hopefully it will boot the computer again. If it does, shut down the unit. On the primary bus, set your old HD as master & the new HD as slave with jumpers. Boot the unit & hopefully you will now have a "c"&"d" HD showing in My Computer. Remember that your are dealing with Windows & what should happen & what really happens can be two entirely different things.

Erroe code


You post a wrong printer nr, you must have bizhub C350 not bizhub 350, beacause 350 doesnt have that kind of code.
In Bizhub C350 that code means:
C12C0: Hard disk recognition error
You have the following options:
- reinstall the hard disk
- change hard disk
or as a last chance change PWB-MFP

good luck
