Turn your laptop over so you can see the buttom. There is a panel at the side of the laptop and two screws holding it down. Take the two screws out and slide your hard drive out. Remove the screws at the side of the hard drive caddy and installing new one is reverse of removal

My system is running slow


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

Lenovo Thinkcentre M55e 9632 after installation of new memory and hard drive when starting pc the monitor displays warning pc entering energy saving mode not able to to install drivers , enter bios, safe...


The fact that you installed a new hard disk may be the issue ..If it is a sata hard drive you will need a raid or driver for it ..or something like that ..or just go to bios and select the bus for the hard drive to work in native mode (or ide ) ..and install the operation system ..
If you installed it ..but you also have the other one ..make sure they are compatible ..and also go to bios and select the one with the operation system as first boot device ...
There can be the possibility that your ram memory is not supported well ...make sure even if it fits ..that the value of the frequency written on it is not larger than the one your motherboard supports ..usually it have to be the same or smaller ..if it is larger it may be casing problems ..Usually restarts and blue-screens ..or not booting at all ..
In case you just changed the hard disk ..and the memory ..and you got rid of the other hard disk ..than you need to install the operation system ..make sure you get a boot-able disk ..and install it from scratch ..and if you use a sata hard disk ..try to load the raid driver or the ahci on the start (when the installing system asks for them or says to press a key for to install as 3rd party ) ..or go to bios and disable the raid for it ..and enable it back after inatalling it in native mode.. load driver and restart ..
I basically try to say that your hard disk may need a raid driver for to be seen ..and if it does not have a operation system on ..it needs to be installed.
you may also use the old hdd if it has an operation system on it ..and install windows from it ..but on a new partition on this new hard disk ..after that remove the old one ..or format and use as storage ..

Have replaced computer. Motherboard dead on old one. Is there any practical way I can get pictures and such from old computer. It will not power up. Thanks


You should be able to tak the hard drive out of the old one and put it in the new one as a secondary drive. There is a good chance, though, that the drive won't fit. If it doesn't, you'll need something like this.

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message


> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.
