How to replace hp 6449us hard drive


HP Support > HP Pavilion dv6449us Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3444107&

In the list click on - Manuals

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3444107&

In the list scroll down. Click on the blue -
HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
This is because the file is downloading in the background, and will not show until fully downloaded.

Go to Page 123, using the PDF file page number box at top, and the Down Arrow.

[OR;
You can put your mouse cursor in the PDF file page number box.
The box to the Right of the Down Arrow.
Left-click one time. Anything in the box is now highlighted in Blue.
Type the page number you want.
Press the Enter key ]

ALL power is removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

Once you remove the two Philips head screws from the Harddrive Compartment Cover, and remove the cover; you are instructed to remove the harddrive, using the Mylar plastic 'tab'.

A Note of Caution!!
On the opposite side of the Mylar tab are the contact pins.
Pull the harddrive using the Mylar tab, to the Outside edge of the case. Still sitting FLAT.

Now ease the harddrive up at an angle, raising it up on the Mylar tab; BUT at a slight angle just enough so the harddrive clears the case, and you can pull it out.

IF, you lift the harddrive straight up, you will bend the contact pins, and believe me; you do Not want to do that.

Do you have the Restoration Disk, or a Full Installation disk of Windows?
I recommend getting the Restoration Disk, if you do not have the above.

In the US the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down, to give to the nice representative.
This is on the Bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.
S/N = Serial Number

For other countries use HP Support Worldwide, for the contact number,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/support.html

Has the basic Windows files.

Where does the power led wire go on the motherboard


For an eMachines T5224 Desktop PC?

The eMachines T5224 Desktop PC uses an Intel 945GCL motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-D945GCL-AA-D67193-203-Socket-775-MOTHERBOARD-/130713275248?pt=AU_Components&hash=item1e6f1e4b70

(Not advertising for the seller, or the website. Just posted for reference)

Motherboard Manual:

Intel Support > Intel D945GCL motherboard > Main Support page,

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/d945gcl

Go down to the subheading - Documents and Guides. (And -> is an Ampersand)
In the list under this subheading click on - Product guides

On this page click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D945GCL Product Guide - English (PDF)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

[Took 10 seconds just now, using a medium speed DSL connection ]

The PDF file page number box is in the Top header, and is to the right of the Down Arrow.
The Zoom In icon ( + ) increases the view size, when you click on it.
The Zoom Out icon ( - ) decreases the view size.

IF you know the page number you want, you can use the Down Arrow to go page, by page to it, Or;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box. Left-click once.
Anything in the page number box is now highlighted in blue.

2) Type the page number you want.
3) Press the Enter key.

Go to Page 11.
Shows an illustration of the motherboard. The view shown is actually 90 degrees to the right, in comparison to how it actually sits in the computer case.

[In the computer case; the Processor is to the Top, Ram memory slots to the Right, and long white PCI slots are to the Bottom ]

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
It may have F_PANEL, or FP1, or the equivalent, silkscreened on the motherboard next to it.

In the illustration on Page 11 the letter V, points to the Front Panel header.
Motherboard mounted in your computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner.

Two rows of pins, and the area around them is color coded, for where the wires are supposed to attach to, from the Front Panel.

Go to Page 43.

Looking at the Front Panel header, there are two rows of pins. (Already stated, I know)
The TOP row is numbered ODD.

Starting at the RIGHT side of the header, (Or motherboard), and going towards the LEFT side;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

The BOTTOM row is numbered EVEN.

Starting at the RIGHT side of the header, going towards the LEFT side;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10. Just a blank spot.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD activity LED light is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the two wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It is/was used for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

There is no Pin 10.

How Do I Remove the Hard Drive


HP Support > Pavilion ze4610 Notebook PC > Main page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=384624&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

This is for the ze4610US version. The layout inside is still the same for the ze4610EA version, also.

Click on the blue - Manuals in the header panel.
(If 'Your Input is Valuable to Us" comes up, I suggest close it)

Click on the blue Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a Service Manual. It is in PDF file form.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, (Maintenance and Service Guide), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Ignore the following if you are aware;

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
The page number in the PDF file page number box, does not correspond to the actual page number in the Service Manual.

If you know the number of the page you want, you can use the Down Arrow to arrive at it, or;
1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
2) Left-click once
3) Type the page number you want
4) Press the Enter key

You can also use the Bookmarks Menu to the left.
Click on the + sign next to - Removal and Replacement
Scroll down, click on - Removing the Hard Disk Drive

Or go to Page 39

From me:
Always, always, always remove ALL power.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery

Work on a table, or workbench. Do Not work on a couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor.
These are High areas of Static electricity, and Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Handle the harddrive by it's case, and refrain from touching the contact pins in the back.

What is it you are trying to do?
Replace a bad harddrive, or increase storage space with a larger harddrive?

E-Machines T3508 PC Desktop Motherboard connecting the wires


The eMachines T3058 Desktop PC uses an Intel D101GGC motherboard.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The rectangular area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Front Panel header:

This link takes you to Intel Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D101GGC motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-021718.htm

On this page click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D101GGC Product Guide - English (PDF)

The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

{ Took 7 seconds to download just now, with no additional download time needed.
Using medium speed DSL connection }

Ignore the following if you are aware;
At the top of the PDF file is the PDF file page number box, and the Zoom Out/Zoom In icons.

Zoom Out ( + ) enlarges the page view, Zoom In ( - ) reduces the page view.
For myself I reduce the view size to 100 or 75 percent.

The page number box is to the right of the Down Arrow.

(If you do not see this, hover your mouse cursor towards the bottom/middle. When the icons come up, {They were 'ghosted out'}, click on the PDF icon to the far right )

Provided that somehow you cannot download this motherboard manual;

Orient the motherboard so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Same as it sits in the computer case.

Processor to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, white PCI slots to the bottom.
The Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

It is a rectangular block of plastic with two rows of pins.
4 across the Top, 5 across the Bottom.

It is numbered Even on the top, and Odd on the bottom.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards the right, on the top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is no Pin 10, just an empty space.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards the right, on the bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (Orange)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Blue)

C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volts. Not Used (Black)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light. (Green)
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Red)

Do not know what wires coming from the Front Panel are the Power On switch wires, Power On LED light wires, or Harddrive activity LED light wires?

Remove the Front Panel, trace the wires to the Power On switch. (Two wires. Probably twisted together. Or all wires are in a single sheath)

Same for the Power On LED light, and the Harddrive LED light.

Need to know where the harddrive, or optical drive plugs in?
Need to know where the power cables from the Power Supply plug in?

My laptop isn't picking up my external harddrive anymore? There is nothing wrong with it's power supply and usually it comes up immediately. How do I test whether the harddrive is still working?


Hi,

you have to try it out on another pc, plug it in the USB port and watch if there is any autoplay or so. If so, then it has most probably to do with the registry keys.
Please specify your operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7,...)

I accedentally knocked the power wires off inside the big box i cant think of the name on my emachine w3507 how do i put back together


Power On switch, (Button), wires from the front panel that go to the motherboard?

I could really use the name of the motherboard, to try to get you this information.
I don't have an eMachines W3057 sitting in front of me, at the moment, and eMachines Support never states what motherboard is being used.

Usually they are made by TriGem, or ECS, or Intel.

HOWEVER, (Not shouting), from my data bank of information, it is stated that the motherboard used in an eMachines W4022, is version of the ECS 945G-M3.

IF, my information IS correct, this is ECS Support, and the download page for the Motherboard Manual, for the ECS 945G-M3 motherboard,

http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=527&DetailName=Manual&DetailDesc=&CategoryID=1&MenuID=6&LanID=9

Go down to the heading - Download.
To the right you will see - Taiwan, USA, Europe, and China.
These are the download server links.

You Left-click on the country name, that is nearest your country you are in.
(I have always found China to be the best for me, and I am in the USA)

After you click on the download server link name, a small window will come up on the right.
My advice is to Left-click on the circle to the left of - Save File.
(This will save the file to your computer. Then you can look at it anytime you want, and won't have to download it again)

Now go to the bottom of the window, and click on OK.

This is a Zip file. A Zip file is used to compress information, so it can be sent over the internet easier. You have to unzip the file.

If you do Not, have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Windows XP. Documents for Vista), this will go to your desktop screen.

(Windows XP: Left-click on Start, then click on My Documents. In the My Documents folder, this file may have gone to another folder. Folder name is Downloads. Double-click on it to open it)

The file will have 945G-M3 next to it.

When you see the file name, Double-click on it. This will open the Unzip Wizard. Go to the top left of the page, and left-click on -
Extract All Files.
Left-click on Next, Next, and Finish.

You will now see 945G-M3 (1.0b) next to an Adobe PDF icon.
Double-click right on this file name.

You are now looking at the Motherboard Manual.

The connector on the motherboard you are looking for is the Front Panel Header. (Connector on a motherboard is a header) Also known as PANEL1.

Go to Page 20. (Page 12 on the document)
Looking at the top of the PDF file you will see a blue Down Arrow. Click on it to go to Page 20.

The small white squares represent the pins on the connector. The black rectangles shown that go from pin to pin, represent the connector on the wires.

If somehow you cannot download the PDF Motherboard Manual, or are having trouble understanding the Front Panel Header connections, allow me to explain where the wires go.

Let's orient the motherboard position so that we are both looking at it the same way. Same direction.

Processor at the top. Ram Memory slots to the right.
The PANEL1 header is down on the very bottom Right.

The header is rectangular in shape. It has Green, Red, Yellow, and Blue areas on it.

There are two rows of pins.
4 across the top.
5 across the bottom.

The pins are numbered.
Starting at the Top Left, and going across to the Right;

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is No Pin 10. Just an empty spot)

Starting at the Bottom Left, going across to the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

1) Pins 6 and 8, are for the Power On switch. (Switch is behind your Power On button)

2) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On light.

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive activity light. (HDD on the wire connector)

4) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, (Behind the Reset button)

5) Pin 9 is Not used. Nothing connects here.

Would appreciate hearing how this comes out.

When I turn it on, only the fans run. I cannot hear the hard drive run and the hard drive light on the bezel is solid yellow


look on bios to see if detects the hard drive ...if does not boot to windows...the hard disk has no reason to go on ....and the issues could be many ....check the Ram memory if do not appear anything on screen at all ...and just runs the coolers and clicks without boot at all...in this case its the Ram memory ...so check it ...get it out ..put it back ...and remove the bios battery to force it see them again .....if it is booting until the operating system should appear ...and after that nothing ...reinstall ...
Also .....if there is anything written on the screen ..read carefully ..usually it will say whats wrong ...and advise in same issues..like replace hdd ...or files missing ...or blue screen error from memory issues..

Corupt hard drive 1


First you'll need to acquire an external harddrive enclosure. IDE or SATA depends on your hard drive. Shut the computer down. Remove the hard drive from your computer and place same into the enclosure. You'll need to hook your enclosure with the hard drive hooked up in it to another computer and remove all your data. Place back the hard drive into your computer and now you can do a system restore or a full reformat and OS installation. Respond to me, if you need step by step instructions.
