The hard drive is located under the plastics on the right below keyboard. Accessing is a pain and a bit of trial and error.

If the system crashed, I would use a linux live cd like PUPPY
to transfer what files you want to a flash drive then use the recovery partition to restore to factory settings.

if you need the distribution of puppy I can e-mail it to you or you can google it and download it. Live cd's load into ram memory and once loaded you "mount" the hard drive access it and copy files to a "mounted" flash drive.

The recovery partition is accessed by one of the function keys

My computer drive crashed. How can I retrieve the data?


If the operating system program was all that crashed, then yes, you may be able to recover data. If the hard drive itself failed totally, then your only possible option is to take it to a data recovery specialist. They can often recover data off these devices as they have special tools and software to do it. They are expensive, though, so unless the data you are looking to recover is very important to you, it;s probably not worth the cost.Now if the hard rive itself still runs, but just won't run Windows, you can remove the hard drive and connect to to another PC as an add-on drive and access the files that way.

Does the hard drive interchange with other Averatecs?


Swapping hard drives only works if the hard drive is swapped into an identical computer with the same device configurations, CPU and RAM etc.
The best way to copy or recover data from a working hard drive is to insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. You should see this drive as an external hard drive and you can then copy or backup the data onto the computers hard drive or USB memory stick etc.

Disk read error


A disk read error on boot is an indication that the hard disk drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

If the system is under warranty, then contact the manufacturer/warranty provider. If not under warranty then you have to replace or have the hard drive replaced for you by a technician.

Portable hard drives are fairly inexpensive ($100 or less normally) and labor to replace one should run $50 to $100 or so.

How to replace hard drive in Averatec 3700 series notebook


The link to all the manuals is no longer valid, Averatec has been purchased by Trigem. Averatecforums.com and Averatec-forums.com have both gone under and there is painfully few dis assembly guides available.

The only one I've been able to find that was useful is found here:[url]http://www.larwe.com/technical/av3715-open.html[/url]

Goodluck pulling out your hard drive.
