Hi experts, I have scoured the internet and I have not found anyone who is in the same situation as I am. I just bought this laptop by HP "hp envy touchsmart m6-k022dx sleekbook" to replace my previous...


if you want a hard drive that will not fail the hard drive should be a solid state (SSHD)
they are priced at around $60.00 a gig and come in sizes from 120 to well over 500 gig
as there are no spinning discs, failure is remote
besides that a sshd will store more for the same gig size than a disc HD
now best talk with a computer geek to get exact information but you should be able to remove the hd in the computer and replace it with a new one
now connect the hard drive ( removed ) back to the unit as you would a backup hard drive and then down load it back into the computer
remember when fitting a new hard drive you may have to reset the bios to boot from the cd os disc or boot from the removed hard drive as the new hd will not have an os on it
AS I said talk with a geek and get how to do it
computer capacity is also determined by the ram size so if you have the slots fit another ram stick

My Acer Aspire 9302 laptop will not boot up. It worked perfectly until yesterday and I can hear the hard drive whirring but its green light only stays on for about a second and then nothing happens. I've...


The system disc probably did not come with the computer. You could burn one if the computer is functioning correctly. However, you may consider getting a full version of Windows 7 32 bit and trying to install it through the DVD drive.

You'll have to set the BIOS to boot from the DVD drive once you have the install DVD from Microsoft.

Luckily, Windows 7 can be used on many computers that came with Vista or XP originally, without upgrading the hardware.

The Windows 7 operating system costs about $119.99 depending on where you get it.

This operating system can breath new life into your old laptop, which otherwise may require replacing.

If the hard disk drive actually crashed and is not recoverable, you may have to replace that hardware part, but hard drives aren't too expensive these days.

Good luck on this repair.

Installation Freezes


Is there any possible way for you to see if it installs correctly on another computer? If it does then the problem doesn't have anything to do with the discs however if the installation error happens on another computer warranty will cover the replacement of the discs for you. I am not at my Vista computer right now but I know there is an option to run in XP compatibility mode, if you can turn that on, by right clicking and going into the disc/program properties, then you may be able to install it. Of course, that would only work if your on Vista, although XP has a compatibility mode for 98/me/2000 which might work. That's all that I can think of right now.

CD not coming out of my MacBook


Things I might try that you may or may not have tried already:
  1. Reboot and try to eject again.
  2. Reboot and hold down your mouse button during start up.
  3. Reboot and hold down your the eject button during start up.
If those don't work, check to see if your disk drive is warped in anyway. My old MacBook would only eject if I pried the slot open a little.

I hope you can get your disc out.

My dimension 4600c wont always read discs


sounds as though you need a new CD drive, the optics in your drive are not working correctly.

CD drives are available for cheap at any computer store or consumer electronics store.

very easy to replace, 4 screws hold it in, and plug in the cables to the new drive from the old one. please dont forget to rate!
