SOURCE: Hard Disk upgrade

Figured this out...
1)  Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2)  Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3)  Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4)  Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5)  Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1)  Flip the caddy over 2)  Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3)  Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4)  Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

SOURCE: Need to know If I can use this hard drive in this laptop?

Hi again,

here is the awser to all you problems :-)

Get thise drivers:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/nLite.shtml
download the drivers and unzip them (in case they come archived) in a desired location. Then download and install the Nlite application. When you start the Nlite application, you will be asked to provide the location for the Windows installation package. Insert the genuine Windows Installation CD into the CD drive and, inside the application, select the CD drive letter.

regards

I agree, take a Seagate 500 GB 7200 RPM drive for laptops. The standards for the connections are same. So that would not be a problem. Make sure its for laptop and not the desktop one.

SOURCE: SATA 2.5 connectors different than current Presario R4000 laptop

It seems that your notebook does not have sata connection to Hard drive. Your harddrive is IDE connection. Sorry but you can't use SATA on this laptop.

I need to replace the optical drive in a compaq presario c300nr laptop. How do I get to the drive?


Hi.

The hard drive cover is located at the base of the computer. To replace the hard drive:

1. Prepare the computer for disassembly, turn it off, disconnect power adapter and remove main battery.
2. Loosen the two Phillips PM2.5×5.0 captive screws that secure the hard drive cover to the computer.(see pic.1)
3. Lift the rear edge of the hard drive cover , and then swing it up and forward and remove it.
4. Slide the hard drive to the right, and then lift the hard drive from the hard drive bay.(pic 2)
5. Do operations in reverse order to install the new hard drive.

Keep getting a read disk error occured on startup and it says press ctrl alt del to restart but the same thing happens again.


Try re-seating your hard drive, removing and putting back in again. Make sure that your hard drive is the first boot in the order from the BIOS.

Replacing RH Side view mirror on a 2006 Toyota Sienna


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
