Kein Ersatzteil erforderlich.

  1. Turn off the computer.
    • Turn off the computer.

    • Disconnect the charging cable from the computer.

      • Failure to turn off the device and disconnect the cable could lead to personal injury or device damage.

    • Remove the captive screw located on the top section of the back panel, using a Philips #1 screwdriver.

      • Keep in mind that the screw cannot be fully removed from the panel, even when fully loosened.

    • Use the blue, plastic opening tool to gently pry a section of the back panel open.

    • Next slide the opening tool around the back panel to disconnect the connecting pins.

    • After the pins have been disconnected the back panel can then be easily lifted off the computer.

    • Locate the hard drive on the bottom right side of the laptop.

    • Unscrew the 4 x 2.5mm x 5mm screws, using the Philips #1 screwdriver.

    • Using your hands, raise the hard drive far enough to disconnect the cables attached to it.

    • Using your hand grab the black portion connecting the cables to the battery and disconnect it.

      • Do not pull on the cables directly. This would risk damaging them or tearing them from the device.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Is there a step related to removing the hard drive mount? I believe that you’ll need the mount in order to screw a new drive into the system.

Are there other options beside the same seagate hard drive? I’m reading on forums that this hard drive is not very reliable. And since mine just completely died after less than 4 years I’m skeptable replacing it with the same exact hard drive?
