Introdução

The hard drive is one of the more common computer components to fail. The hard drive on a computer is responsible for everyday activities such as loading the OS or accessing apps. Replacing the hard drive also allows for optimization as there are many different hard drives available on the market. Hard drives are "plug and play" components which means that they can be removed and replaced very easily. The tricky part is getting to them inside the computer. The replacement hard drive should be left in the package until it is ready to be installed as any foreign material that gets on or in the hard drive may affect the performance of the component. Learn how to replace your hard drive using this guide for your HP laptop.
