Should be located right under the TouchPad.

Turn off your laptop, unplug and remove the battery, remove 3 screws (one is covered by a rubber grommet) and you should be able to slide it out no problem.

There are two screws which attach the HDD to the plastic piece. And there are 4 screws which attach the cage to the HDD. You will need to remove these both and attach them to your new HDD.

Installation is reverse of removal. Good luck :)

There are 3 screws, look just under the opening catch, you will see 2 screws, the other is behind the little rubber grommet, remove all three drive then just pulls out!

Can the hard disk be damaged after removing battery to force shutdown


Not likely to be physically damaged -- strong magnets will pull the read/write components away from the recording surface.
However, the "logical integrity" of the file-system may need to be checked/repaired, by using the Windows 'CHKDSK' ("check disk") built-in software program.

The disk itself may be corrupt , go to microsoft and download xp home or pro , whatever your using and burn to a disk .If you don't have access to another computer , go to a repair shop and you can usually buy a burn't copy of xp for 5 to 10 dollars . RE-install as usual. please note !!! you must know what service pack is needed for the install . SP1 - SP2 ....OR to be on the safe side just get XP SP1. good luck!

Your disk-drive has failed.
So, your computer tried to boot itself over the Ethernet network,
by "broadcasting" a request for booting. When either the network-cable was _NOT_ connected, or when _NO_ computer responded to the "broadcast" message, you get "PXE: media failure".

Take your computer to a qualified technician,
to remove the "dead" disk-drive,
to replace the disk-drive,
and to reinstall Windows.

Needing More Disk Space


sounds like you need a major cleanup.

open your Control Panel and then open ADD/REMOVE Programs.. review the alphabetical list and uninstall ANYTHING you do not use anymore. If you are not SURE leave it alone. Uninstall any old versions of SUN JAVA.. leave the latest version (Ver 6 update 13)

next do a internet search for "ATF Cleaner" this is a very simple program that does not need installing to run. It will clean up a host of things for Windows, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera if they are installed..

more solutions are available though this is a good start. If you cannot free up enough space using these methods then you need a larger hard drive though I would question replacing the HDD on such an aging laptop.. the best thing is to uninstall as much unneeded software as possible..
