Don't know the first thing about working on a Ferrari? No, not that kind! All we're going to do today is switch the hard drive in the Acer Ferrari 4000 laptop, which is far easier and way more functional than trying to install a hard drive in a vehicle!

The Ferrari 4000 ships with a PATA hard drive, which you will have the full knowledge to replace time and time again once you're done. It's so easy, even a caveman can do it.

Let's get started by removing these two Phillips #0 screws holding down the hard drive bay cover on the bottom of the computer near the 3 USB ports. These screws do not come completely out - they are meant to stay attached to the cover so you don't lose them. Lift the bay cover to expose the drive cover

The only thing separating you from the hard drive glory is a drive cover that looks oddly like a sports car grille... Remove the 4 Phillips #0 screws. Do not lift the cover just yet: there are two more screws securing it to the computer. If you lift it now, you risk bending the metal and damaging the cover.

  • Pull the tab to free the grille from the drive.

Pull back with a spudger (or your fingernails) where the drive plugs in to the computer. Put your fingers where the red circles are and swing the drive up. Once it's up an adequate amount, grab it by its sides and pull it out of the computer. Put your fingers where the red circles are and swing the drive up.
