    Found the field manual.

    You have to take the main cover off, by unscrewing from the bottom. The hard drive is under the keyboard palm rest, lower right. Other parts have to be removed first.

    Thanks. Hope this helps for future reference.

How to reset bios on compaq v2000 laptop


Remove A Cmos Battery From A Compaq V2000 Laptop

The Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) in a computer is responsible for storing hardware settings and time on your computer. The CMOS is powered by a small battery and is able to store information whether your computer is turned on or off. While the standard CMOS battery lasts for up to ten years, you may need to replace your CMOS sooner than that. If you password your BIOS and forget the password or need to reset your configuration back to the default, you can remove the CMOS and re-insert or replace it.

Instructions
1. Unplug the computer from the wall outlet and unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

2. Turn your Compaq Presario V2000 face down and slide the battery release latch to the left to disengage the battery from its position. Remove the battery.

3. Unscrew the screws over the hard drive cover, which is located in the lower right corner of the laptop if your laptop is placed with the battery away from you. Lift the hard drive tab, located on the left side of the hard drive, and slide the hard drive to the left to remove it from the computer.

4. Unscrew the single screw located directly under the optical CD/DVD drive. Insert a very thin item, such as a paper clip or pin, into the hole located on the optical drive to open it. Slide your optical drive out of its tray to remove it.

5. Remove the two screws located on the switch cover, which is directly under the battery. Turn the computer right-side up and open it as wide as it will go. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to lift up the switch cover that is directly above the "F1," "F5," "F11" and "Insert" keys.

6. Unscrew the four screws that hold the keyboard in place. These screws are are located in the upper right corner of the computer under the switch cover that you just removed. Lift the keyboard up and slide it forward until it rests on the palm rest. Unplug the zif connector, which is located directly above the palm rest, to disconnect the keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and out of the laptop.

7. Turn the computer upside down again and remove the memory modules by unscrewing the two screws over the memory compartment located directly below the battery slot. Unclip the two clips located on each side of the memory module to release it from its slot and slide it out of the computer.

8. Unscrew the two screws on the PCI cover directly beneath the memory module. Disconnect the two wireless antennas above the card. Spread the two clips securing the mini PCI card into place and lift the card up and out at a 45-degree angle away from you.

9. Flip the laptop back up on its right side and disconnect the display cable located in the upper left corner above the keyboard area underneath the switch cover you removed earlier. Then remove the two pieces of tape in the upper right corner that hold the wireless antenna in place. Remove the two clips located beneath the tape pieces. Unscrew the two screws on the upper left corner and the two in the upper right corner that hold the display into place. Remove the display assembly.

10. Turn the computer back upside down and remove the remaining 19 screws. Lift the base enclosure straight up out of its place.

11. Locate the CMOS battery, a small circular object, and lift it up out of its place. Leave it out for five minutes and reinsert it to reset your settings. Re-assemble the computer without the battery and plug it into the wall.

How to remove hard drive from sony vaio pcg-2c1l


As you install new programs, rip music files from CDs or download data from the Internet, the hard drive on your Sony Vaio PCG laptop will eventually fill up and run out of room. You can replace the hard drive with a new one that has a larger capacity.

Power off the Sony Vaio PCG laptop, disconnect the power cord and then close the lid. Flip the computer over so that the bottom is facing up toward you. Press down on the raised latch that holds the battery into place and then pull the battery out of the laptop. Locate the five screws arranged in a square pattern on the right side of the laptop case. Take a screwdriver and remove all of the screws. Slide your fingernail or the tip of the screwdriver underneath the seam of the square plastic cover and lift it up. Grab the cover and remove it. Pull out the two screws that hold the hard drive onto the motherboard. Grab both ends of the hard drive and carefully pull it directly upward for about an inch so that you can see the cable connected to the motherboard. Disconnect the cable and then pull the hard drive the rest of the way out. Take out the four mounting screws that are located on both side edges of the hard drive. Take the replacement hard drive and install the mounting screws into its left and right sides. Plug the cable that runs from the motherboard into the corresponding port on the replacement hard drive. Check the direction of the new hard drive and lay it into the open slot in the same direction as the old hard drive. Use the two screws you pulled out earlier to hold it in place. Slide the cover piece back on and replace the five screws. Push the battery back into the laptop until the latch snaps into place. Hope this helps.

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!!!!
