Question about Sharp Actius MP30 Notebook
Hi, I wanted to upgrade the 40 GB drive in my Sharp MP-30 mini laptop, but am not sure if it is 1.8"
or the 2.5" drive, I have been reading all info but does not say. I may just have to open it up.
It is a standard 2.5" IDE laptop drive. You have to dis-assemble to mother board. Easy to do if you are comfortable with internals. You have to remove a million screws to get case apart. All visible on bottom, also internal pc card next to memory card has 2 screws. Don't forget back side hinge screws and edge screws on upper part of lower shell visible in back and when dvd/cd is pulled (2 bottom screws hold player in. The shell come apart easily little force no tricky pressure or lock taps. Where it hinges on back top side next to LCD screen lift gently straight up this is where it is most resistant. A few ribbon cables and 2 wire cables to disconnect. After lower case top is off a few screws holding mother board (arrows) needs to be removed to lift motherboard. Drive is connected to mother board by ribbon cable lift pry gently up to release it. Drive is held in by 4 screws. Good luck. If you do not want to do this just get a 2.5" usb drive. You can buy the drives and external case or by already made ones e.g. WD passport.
BTW I am looking for an actius mp-30 casing, mine has damage.
If you have any questions post to contact me
