Chapter 18. Supercharging Your Pavilion > Replacing the Hard Drive

Replacing the Hard Drive

The hard drive is the large storage medium on your computer. Hard drives shipped with Pavilions today have a very large capacity, but what's sufficient today might not be tomorrow. You might decide to replace your hard drive to put one with more capacity in its place or to replace a damaged hard drive.

✓ The hard drive comes out of your computer quite easily with these few simple steps:

1.
With the computer open and the drive cage removed, unscrew the two screws on the top of the hard drive, as well as a single screw on the bottom.

2.
Slide the old hard drive out.

3.
Slide the new hard drive into place and reattach the screws.

4.
Replace the drive cage and side panel.
