Simple as pie... you will see the harddrive mounted horizontally in a small shelf after you tae the cover off. You have to unscrew the philips screws that hold it in the shelf and unplug the connectors. make sure you label the wires so you know which ones came from that harddrive... they is usually room for 2 harddrives and two complete sets of connectors, don't mix them up. (One is the master and the other called a slave.) There is an adapter for the harddrive that you should always keep should you need to replace the harddrive, (comes in two pieces on either side) the new ones don't come with the adapters to fit them in the case; they are bare bones. If you don't want to go through the gymnastics of taking the other tower apart and installing the 2nd harddrive in it to read it... an internal HDD adapter can be purchased from Tiger Direct for a nominal cost. I allows you plug you internal HDD into a USB socket in any PC (desktop or laptop) and read it as you would a Flashdrive.
First - re-seat the hard
disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and
go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it
doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs
to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or
laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning
This is a network PXE boot screen. This is usually the last boot device it will try if it doesn't detect a HDD or cd/dvd drive with bootable media. You should be able to see a hard drive in bios, if not replce it and re-install your operating system.
First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer too then power adapter of harddisk or your harddrive has internal issue.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

I'm not going to state this is going to cure your problem, but here are some things you may wish to try;
1.Remove the AC adapter if plugged in. Remove the Battery. Open the Memory Compartment door, and remove it. Take the ram memory module, (Stick), out. If you have more than one, remove them both. Now reinstall them/it. Reinstall the Memory Compartment door.
2.Remove the Harddrive Compartment door. Make sure the harddrive is plugged in tight. If you look, there is a rectangular shaped part on one side, in this compartment, that the harddrive plugs into. This is a connector. (Actual name is Interface)
Push the back, (Opposite side of the connector), of the harddrive, to assure that it is fully seated in the connector. Reinstall the Harddrive Compartment door.
Reinstall the Battery. Plug the AC adapter back into the laptop. Plug the AC adapter, (Charger), into the surge protector.
(Advise always unplug the AC adapter from the surge protector first, then from the laptop. If you do not, there is a chance of a voltage spike)
WAIT 1 minute, then turn on the laptop.
The Ram Memory can become unseated very easily. The Harddrive has a metal frame around it, and the frame is attached to the main body of the laptop, with a scre-w, or scre-ws. Still may be a chance, that the harddrive can become partially unplugged from it's connector.
Dear ragalgey, As far As I can remember, most TV design to receive the signal to watch whatever you want limited to available TV station in your local broadcaster. If you think you connect your harddrive to TV USB or 15pin (VGA cable) then you can watch the movie file from harddrive is a totally wrong! You need a drive or a player for those file that capable to configure your TV to play them. Or at least you need a PC or Laptop Computer that played your harddrive then send the images/video via Video Out Jack (Yellow) from your laptop, or connect the 15pin VGA jack from Laptop PC out then plug in to your TV. In this case you'll need the Jack/adapter to convert from 15pin VGA from laptop to available Video jack on your TV. Good Luck!
you can get an adapter that will allow you to connect your laptop hd to another pc through the usb port. Your hard drive is probably SATA so you would need a SATA to USB adapter cable. Something like this cable would work.
