You don't actually have to have the top cover off the laptop. Just remove the screw on the bottom of the Infrared Port (as you're looking at the laptop as in use, the bottm left front corner) and just carefully pry the IR port out away from the case. The harddrive slides right out.

Take the very large screw out located at the bottom of the system. If you are looking at the system like you are typing on it, it is located on the left side. Once the screw is out, here is the real trick, the top cover has to be up before you can pull it out!!!!

Want to upgrade


If you like the T23 then you can upgrade the size of you hard drive, your ram, your Rom drive. I went with the T30 and I like it quite well. I like the mouse better. The Thinkpads are nice to work on.

Thinkpad T42 Hard Disk problem


Hello.

It seems the hard disk size will max out at 80GB with a 5,400 RPM speed according to IBM.

Im sorry to say that this means that it will not support a 120Gb hard drive.

My IBM Think Pad T30 showin working on AC with out powering..


If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.

Laptop problem


It may be a sign that your hard drive has failed. Over 85% of the time that is the case. Also make sure in the bios setting you have the hard drive in the boot order. If you didn't go into the bios then that would not be the problem.

Hard Drive Installation


First you need to transfer all your files to disk cd or other. Then find out where the hard drive is. In that model I think its on the side unscrew the screws and it should slip out by pulling on it. then swap it over. When you turn it on depending where you got the hard drive it may need to reinstall windows if it dont boot up. The bios should pick up your new device/drive.
