Laptop Harddisk Drive Removal Guide

Laptop Screen Replacement

We understand some people have concerns about their information on their laptop. If you wish to remove the laptop harddisk drive, please follow this guide:

A laptop hard drive is usually easy to remove or install.The process requires nothing more than a set of jewelers screwdrivers, a well-lit workspace, and a users manual.

Before doing anything else, unplug the laptop and remove the battery to avoid potential damage to the motherboard (and yourself). Turn the laptop upside down and look for a removable panel or a hard drive release mechanism. Laptop drives are usually accessible from the bottom or side of the chassis. Typically, you release the drive by flicking a lock/unlock button and/or removing a screw that holds the drive in place.

If you´re unsure how to physically remove the drive, refer to your users manual or visit the vendors Web site for detailed instructions. Also, check out Web-based user forums for discussions about your brand of laptop. Message boards often hold a wealth of firsthand reports.

Once the old drive has been removed from the chassis, you may have to extract it from a caddy or detach a set of mounting rails from its sides. If so, attach the rails or caddy to the new drive right away to keep the screws and washers from getting lost. If a connector is attached to the old drives signal pins, remove it and snap it onto the new drive. If you feel resistance, do not force it; you may have it upside down. Damaging the signal pins may render the drive useless.

If this goes over your head a bit, we promise a non intrusive service, we do not at the contents on your laptop, we merely repair your screen.
