Re: EasyNote MX37-U-004 Hard Drive.
Wow, you're right, nothing online for these. I recently had a Packard Bell machine through my shop, it was a different model, but I remember the hard drive being under the keyboard. I'm going to suggest looking under the keyboard. At the very minimum, you might be able to locate it, with the keyboard off.

Glad to help you! You can find the ENGLISH USER MANUAL here (in PDF format) = in the DOCUMENT section (third from LEFT to RIGHT). And HERE you can find some drivers in case you will need = in the DRIVER section (the fourth from LEFT to RIGHT).
Replacing the HD is pretty easy depending on the make & Model. Look at your owners manual or go to the manufactures web site and get one. It should tell you how.
The difficult part is saving your programs and data since you will loose them. A local shop can remove the disk, clone it onto a new disk and insert it back into your laptop. They shouldn't charge more than $100 plus the cost of a new disk.
Yup bad hard drive I would also say. Yes, you can just purchase another Hard Drive no problems. Yes you could install it yourself, & reinstall Windows. It isn't too hard. You just have to methodical and follow instructions. There are many tutorial on the 'net regards how to do it.
Sorry but you cannot download everything from your old hard drive to your new one, but all the data and files can be downloaded to the new hard drive, if you still have the old operating system installation Cd you can just use that for your new hard drive and that should be it you dont need to get a new operating system installation CD..
From what I gather basically you want to copy everything off of your 40GB and put it on the new 320GB and the install correct? Why don't you do a backup (Start>All programs>System Tools>Backup to the external 500GB drive. Install the new 320GB drive and then load the operating system from your operating system disc, then restore the data from the 500GB you backed up, or am I missing something.I know it is not as convenient as cloning but sounds like you may need to do it the old fashion way..there is no good reason that the cloning software would quit reading your disc unless it's some kind of "only get one chance and throw away software".
i have p1 express dual, i have put windows 7 ,2 gb ram , and upgrade HD to 250 7200rpm, i only have to run a cd so i update the bios. my email is email@example.com it took me many hours of searching to find it, i ll send it to anybody i dont believe that even lg company has that bios, is from ''phoenix''
This sounds like a dead hard drive. Still, you may want to try:
1. Enter your CMOS/BIOS and verify that your laptop can detect the hard drive. Further check if it is configured to boot first from the HD;
2. Slip in your XP or Recovery CD and boot from that. It may be that the boot section/files of your HD got messed up. When prompted, instruct the CD to repair;
3. Remove your laptop's HD and connect it to a 2nd PC as an external/removable drive using a 2.5 enclusore with USB attachment. Thereafter proceed to diagnose, check and hopefully recover your important files;
4. If confirmed of a defective HD, replace and reinstall your OS.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
