Here's a link with a breakdown diagram. 4d is the hard drive bezel, located on the front side of the machine. There should be at least one screw holding it. The hard drive will slide out with it.

How do I remove the hard drive?

Depending upon your model laptop, the hard drive may be located behind a panel on the bottom of the laptop or it may be located on the side of the laptop and the retaining screw/s will be on the bottom of the laptop.
When you remove the panel the hard drive will be screwed to a hard drive caddy. Remove the screws on the caddy to release the hard drive. Keep these screws as you will need them to fix the hard drive to the caddy.

Error Code 0141 - No driv detected

Hi anarosenfeld.

After researching all the information online, I found that the issue might be due to the Hard Drive or the CD/DVD Drive.

Based on the information provided by you on this email, I suggest that you perform the below steps:

1) Shut down the system if it is on, Remove the Optical Drive. See instruction in this link:

2) Power up the system, see if the malfunction is still present.

3) If the malfunction is still present please perform this actions:

4) Shut down the system, Remove the HD and put it back See instruction in this link:

5) Then, see if the malfunction is still present.

If the issue still persists even after performing the above steps, please perform the further troubleshooting steps which I have mentioned below:

1) Run the Drive Self Test (Hard Drive Diagnostic).

a) The first step to perform when you encounter errors with the hard drive is the drive self test. Depending on the system, this test can be run either from a CD or from the System Setup (BIOS). When you run the diagnostic test, you will be informed whether the diagnostic is able to test your hard drive.

b) Most recent Desktop, Portable, and Workstation systems have the hard drive diagnostic included in the System Setup. You will find detailed instructions on running this test at the following web address:

2) Hard Drive Cannot Boot, is not Detected or Reports Errors.

a) There are many steps that will help solve or least determine the exact cause of the hard drive errors you might encounter. You'll find easy-to-follow steps at the following web address:

Please perform all the steps mentioned above.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

Black screen.

Always worth a go, but probably you will need to attach the HD to another pc.
There a a couple of ways to do this.
1 open pc remove HD and attach to the other pc
2 remove HD and fit it into an external hard drive enclosure
or finaly there are usb hard drive docks that you just push your hard drive in.

Remove hd compaq presario 1621

I think it is the same as HP. When you undo the cover just pull it right out by the small plastic. No screws holding the drive.

What is the easiest way to remove hard drive from a Gateway T 6313??

I have a Gateway 7510GX. Turn the laptop over. On the side closest to you should be a cover that is held in place w/one or two screws. Reomve this cover and the hard drive should be underneath it. One screw is all that is holding the hard drive tray and the hard drive in place. Remove the screw and gently wiggle the tray loose. There are probably four screws holding the hard drive into the tray. Replacement is the opposite of removal.

How to replace my hard drive in my toshiba a210 laptop

Turn the computer upside down and you will normally see three covers, sometimes four. One is the laptop battery and is easily unclipped. The others have a single screw fixing. One contains memory and sometimes the graphics card, sometimes the graphics card is on it own. The other one contains the hard drive which is a thin 3.5" slab with a ribbon cable and a power connector to it. Undo the screws that hold the drive and then remove the connectors. Replace with a new HD and then boot up with the Operating System disk in the optical drive to reload the software. Don't forget you will have no way to retrieve the data on the HD unless you save it first or you can buy an external hard drive enclosure and mount the old HD in that. They are useful for backups.

Can I upgrade my wireless lan on my compaq laptop. I find some of the newer laptops wireless connections seem stronger. Like this laptop though and it performs great other than that. Have upgraded hard...

First advice, don't buy Compaq. The only laptop I'd spend any significant money on is a Dell. For portability and incredible battery life, I rely on my Acer Aspire One D150-1165. A steal of a deal at $350 from MicroCenter.

It is possible to replace the wireless NIC, depending on whether they built it into the mainboard. Google around, you'll find the answer. The quickest answer is to just plug in a USB adaptor. I prefer either Netgear or Belkin.

Upgrade hd on laptopp

The easiest way is to remove the casing under your laptop and see what make your drive is, but any make of laptop hardrive sould be ok. Sometimes the hard drive may be held in a cradle so you will have to remove it if this is the case and use it with the new hard drive. A problem comes when you probably have the Acer backup/restore folder on another partition(which sometimes includes Windows, as you don't always get a hard windows cd rom),on your current hard drive, so make sure you have a Copy of Windows otherwise You'll have to purchase another Windows installation disc, or clone your drive with something like Norton Ghost.
