Put the dead drive in an external USB drive caddy and check that it really is dead. If the drive controler is actually the problem installing a new drive wont get the laptop going again.

simply remove the plastic cover from rear of laptop. a small icon or image of HDD insignia will most likely be on back, near plastic cover. remove the screws, there will be a tab to assit you in pulling out the hard drive from compartment. it may require you to unscrew more screws to release the hard disk drive.

once removed replace with the new one.

How do I fix a failed hard drive in a laptop?


IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO DO. IF YOU CAN TURN A SCREWDRIVER AND READ YOU CAN REPLACE A HARD DRIVE. ANYONE CAN, MY GRANDMOTHER CAN. JUST WATCH IN VIDEOS. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU USE A WELL KNOWN LOCAL COMPUTER SHOP THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS. SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST NOT TO RIP YOU OFF. FRANKLY I FIND GEEK SQUAD HAS A VERY POOR REPUTATION, OR AT LEAST I GET ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THEM. CALL AROUND YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER SHOPS. KEEP THE BUSINESS LOCAL. GOOD LUCK.

Dead hd wd caviar 80 gb


Is the "dead" hard drive 80GB? or 500GB?
I presume you set up this hard drive as the second hard drive, or as an external drive. You can do these:
1. Disk Management (check the readablility):
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management (please run as administrator; right click it), Disk Management. Is this hard drive info exist in this screen? If it is, then the hard drive is not dead.
Click on the hard drive info, right click, and you can do some actions (format, expand the volume, assign a drive letter, etc.)
2. If necessary, test and fix it using Norton Utilities (download and run it):

Computer wont boot


That sounds like you have a dead hard disk drive if the hard disk drive is dead then you will need to have it replaced there is a way to check if it is dead or not, you will need to go into the bios for most it's usually the hi lighted tab when the bios comes if its dead the hard drive slot should say empty or none if it's not dead it will show the hard drive info

You can replace the hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. Best bet would be a 250GB .
Hard drive have come down in prices, you should be able to get a 250 GB. for less then $100.
Western Digital ansd Seagate are my preference.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My iomega hard drive is dead how can I fix this?


Disconnect any leads and remove the outer cover.

Check the hard disk inside is securely pushed into the receiving socket.

Replace outer cover and give it a try.

Sometimes a knock can dislodge the drive and cause the problems you describe.

Best wishes.

My harddrive doesnt work anymore...its loads up than loads down...and a red light flashes..help!


Remove it from its casing and put hook the drive up to the computer internally, if the drive works the enclosure is dead and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the drive is dead and needs to be replaced.
