After taking off the side panel, remove the front cover. Lay the computer on its side, remove two screws on the top of the metal cage (expansion by) take a long flat head screwdriver and insert it in the cage where the expansion bay is, press down and slide the cage over. Remove power and information cables from the back of the hard drive.

I can't seem toget my HP pavilion m9400f elite to come on. The power supply light in the back lites up but the PC will not start :( Please help.

This will generally be caused by one of two things.
  • Bad power supply
  • Bad motherboard

Start by repalcing the power supply, that is usually the problem.

HP Pavilion Elite m9400f on button flashing, won't start up.

try and pull your add-on cards and reinstall them as well as your memory. make sure that the little switch on the PSU is set to 115v. The clicking sounds like the hard drive, but if you're not getting any error or picture then i don't think that's the case. blow the computer out with compress air, open up the pc and try and start it and make sure that all the fans are spinning.

I was moving my HP pavilion m9400f elite then I dropped it 2 inches off the ground. Now I have this "no signal" thing on my moniter. I switched moniters and tried resetting the BIOS numerous...

If you get to the BIOS, there must be writing on the screen which means there is signal to the monitor.
Has the VGA card or anyother card parted from the mother board?
Is the hard drive wires connected properly at each end?
Check all the connectors on the motherboard are good contact as they can half unplug in the case of a jolt stopping the system.

How to remove the hard drive for pavilion ze5000?

First and foremost be sure it is off and the battery is removed.

To remove the hard drive on the hp pavilion ze5000 turn the laptop upside down.
On the end of the laptop next to the lid release is the hard drive.
It is secured by three screws.
Two are in plain site remove them as well as the hidden one.
With the laptop upside down facing you there is a rubber stop directly above the hood release switch.
Pry it out with a precision, very small, flat blade screw driver. After the rubber piece is removed unscrew the screw that it was hiding.
With the three screws removed you should be able to pull/slide the hard drive out.
