There are simple ways of doing that, usually it has 4 screws, take off the 2 covers that the pc has and take a look, also there is another way too, ones you do the first one make sure it doesnt have a locker that you need to move down or another way before you can remove the hard drive.

As far as my knowledge serves me, I have never seen a manufacturer supplying a machine with 2 Hard drives. May be they have partitioned it that way. You can reformat your machine and make it a single partition.

Can personal info be accessed with hard drive removed?

Yes, as it'll read it as a secondary hard drive. I assume you have another PC to load this hard drive into.

What makes you think your drive is the issue?
Sometimes PC's won't boot because of a bad connection to the memory. I have seen this. When there is no response for the video. If this is the case, it could be resolved by removing the memory and cleaning with a pencil eraser and reinstalling the memory.
As far as removing the drive, often the drive screws into a carrier of some sort. Removing the drive may be a matter of finding the right place to press to release the drive, so it slides out of the machine.

The problem seems to be with RAM. Remove your RAM after switching the PC off and clean the contacts array carefully with a dry cloth, rub a little if required with a slightly coarse cloth. Put it back, hopefully will solve your problem.

How do I remove the drive bay on an hp m7680n so I can get to the motherboard?

Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the hard-drive.

The drive-cage is probably either:

* held-in by a few screws; so, use a screwdriver to remove the screws. If it does not immediately come loose, it will slide out, like a drawer in a cabinet.

* held-in by pressure -- press and hold a lever to "unlock" the drive-cage from the drive-bay, and then slide it out.

Use wd5000 from an HP as External

The best way is to use a desktop system. Leave one hard drive plugged into the primary IDE connector and unplug the CD-rom from the secondary connector and plug the other hard drive into that cable. Reboot your computer and they will show as a C and D drive.

Is there any way to retrieve data from hard drive before sending it to the HP repair center? HP laptop recalled. No monitor. External monitor does not work either.

The only way is to remove the hard disk from your laptop. It is usually easy. Remove the cover from the back of your laptop, take the hard disk, put it in a rack, then transfer the data on another computer.

U can remove the drive from the external unit and hook it up to your vista computer as a secondary drive. Boot up the vista, use windows explorer, and transfer the data from the secondary drive to either your primary or a usb stick.
