How To Replace HP Pavilion Desktop Hard Drive




What do you think about this video?

Daniel Avrit: Thanks dude! Very helpful! I thought I was missing more screws, but it was just that stupid push-tab. Thanks!

Phia Crenshaw: Many thanks! Thought I was nutty! Which is still a possibility!

Jeffrey Roberts: HP makes this needlessly difficult. Desktops from other companies lets you easily replace a hard drive. You do it in just a few minutes with easy access.

Michiel van der Blonk: Actually, HP does have it in their servicing guide. Strangely enough this guide is not available online, but it is on your hard drive (if you can access it haha). Anyway, start the HP support assistant, choose User Guides, then Upgrading and Servicing Guide. You can find it in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\User Guides, which is a link to C:\hp\documentation\usgvn2_EN.xps Everything is explained step by step with pictures.

Todd Dewsnup: OMG thank you so much... I was about to start cutting metal to get that hd out....

Bridgett Backer: I was at the banging and pulling stage when I found your video. Thanks!

Jennifer Henley: AHAHAHA awesome, thank you! We saw the logo that said to push then pull but we couldn't find the damn tab. This video is exactly what we needed. Dammit, HP.

Kevin McDermott: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was about to take a blowtorch to the case in order to remove the hard drive. Awesome video!

Varekai0723: Thank you! I was about to lose my goddamn mind trying to figure this out.

Art Effects: I don't think you needed to take the fan off to do that being that all you had to do was take the casing out like you did and take the screws out after but yes good video I had the same problem thanks

KoMo PN: Omg just like you i was trying to shake it off and everything thanks for the vid

Yak Almighty: thanks so much man i was struggling for the past hour trying to get it out lol

Stephen Taylor: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I got as far as you did at the beginning (taking out the fan and everything else), but hadn't yet found that tab to release the drive bay. You saved me a night of frustration!

Breezer HD: Thank you so freaking much!

rocknrollzombie: Thanks for the video man. Its so easy once you know how to do it.

Alexander Pozhitkov: Dude, thanks for the video. I was so angry at this stupid thing, almost smashed it to the ground. 

Tyler Haslam: Had the same trouble getting it loose. Found this video and took two seconds. Best part was when I noticed the instructions for the cage's removal are engraved on it. Thanks

AlakhNiranjan17: You made my day! To hell with HP for super complicated design. But you are an angel!! as somebody said before removing fan was not a requirement to me. Pushing forward was a key to me.. Thanks and God Bless :)

sipandtrip320: I was shaking the hell out of the drive bay. Thank you!

David Southard: Just what I needed to know...press and slide. Thanks!

Norbury53: I was trying to help someone do that over Skype (not knowing the procedure) and your video was immensely helpful - thanks heaps. (Liked). Of course now we have to get it all back together ;-).

Ken Poisson: Thank you!. Never would have thought to push the lever. You're awesome!

TheTudinh: Somebody help me please. Can a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 fit in this computer case?

VidLeslie: Thank you so much. I have an hp753n and I was trying so hard to take out the hard drive. The setup inside is different but it also has a button that needs to be pressed in order to take out the whole assembly before removing the hard drive.

ferda didar ünal: you saved my life , i mean my nerves :D

Jan van Dijk: Thanks!!

Chillout, it's danii.: Holy crap thank you xD I literally struggled for an hour trying to pull the box towards me while pushing the tab in. All i had to do was pull it out. Bigup!

Eric Carter: You should consider redoing the video. people are still watching it and believing that they have to remove the CPU fan because of what you said.

Ben Dover: Ty 

xxyoloxx04: I have an hp pavilion desktop and my hard drive went out trying to get a replacement its an sata hard drive but it have like a support screw right in the middle of it could anyone let me know the type of hard drive I need to get or if I can get one with out the screw in the middle of it 

dzikikapitalizm: Thank you! Very helpful!

Razorx2112: My hard drive cage looks the same. All you have to do is push the tab and shove the cage forward. You don't need to remove any screws or the fan.

Zack Long: This has been baffling me for far too long. Thank you kindly!

TheJ3LLiB34N: thank you sir!

giovdor: thanks!!

Marvin Ellis: Hello! Guys the only two screws he needed to remove were the two at the top. Push the tab down and push forward. Removing the fan and all that other jazz was not necessary. 

pdsoft games: This saved me a ton of trouble, thanks!

Manjit Gill: Yo to be honest, same crap happened to me lmfao, I was getting so pissed off cuz I couldn't pull out the hard drive, now when I watched the video, I was like "Wow...I thought that stupid metal thing was just useless..." Guess not >_> 

SocialGameClub: thank you bro! 

Eddie Lopez: Thank you!

Sarah Miller: Thank you very very much

Ravi K. Bahl, P.A.: That's was great. I was really struggling with this & then with your help - Voila!!!!!!! :)

Tracy Langdon Quintrell: Great video, but DO NOT REMOVE THE FAN! You can get the HD out without it. I removed it and had to find out the hard way that it bent a lot of the gold pins and kept the computer from working. Otherwise, great video :)

Keith Johnson: This was tremendously helpful, thank you!

Razorx2112: Thank You Much!

Bryant Lee: Thanks, little thing with a big help

Pakun Saketo: ugh thank you so much for this! I had absolutely no idea how to get it out because of the screws on the side<-<

shanice rouswell: Thank you for this I was struggling for nearly an hour !

Che Xin: great help!!!
