How do you use the swapping hard drive and what type and size of hard drive


It would have been easier if you had provided some information on the make and model of the pc laptop. Most likely the hard drive vibration protection software is enabled on this laptop. This would have been triggered when you hit the front cover. The error message may just be a warning of some sorts. Could try and find a bit more if you provide the make and model of your laptop.

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-FRV26 series laptop that has just started shutting itself down and restarting after windows has been up for only a minute or two. I have taken the unit apart & cleaned everything...


The main drive (C) being too full is an indicator that's your problem. Windows reserves space on your drive called a 'swap' file. It effectively takes hard drive space and uses it in lieu of RAM if you don't have enough available RAM to run programs.

If the computer doesn't have enough hard drive space to create the swap file then it won't boot up, as it will interpret the lack of available space as a failure to install the file and then try to reboot.

Luckily it doesn't install one when you're in safe mode. Try going into safe mode and restoring some of your hard driver space, as well as performing a cleanup and defragmentation of your hard drive, and chances are it will boot up.

As an alternative you might think about getting an external hard drive and using that for any new programs/music/videos/etc.

Does the hard drive interchange with other Averatecs?


Swapping hard drives only works if the hard drive is swapped into an identical computer with the same device configurations, CPU and RAM etc.
The best way to copy or recover data from a working hard drive is to insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. You should see this drive as an external hard drive and you can then copy or backup the data onto the computers hard drive or USB memory stick etc.

Damaged 2004 ThinkPad, T4 type 2373, only the hard drive is good.


The hard drives are interchangable. I would check out ebay or even www.craigslist.com for a cheap inexpensive replacement thinkpad laptop.
