-My PC is a HP Pavilion a510n 3000+ with a 120 GB 72000RPM Ultra DMA HD
-I just bought a Western Digital 120 Hard Drive
I want the new Hard Drive as a BACK UP ONLY
to store extra files & whatnot
thing is the manual is not very specific in the Western Digital package
1st thing first:
HOW DO I open my PC & where do I place the new Hard Drive, like in the back/top of the PC?
my HP has about 22 screws including 4 on the each sides that have BOLTS on the other side of the screw/INSIDE the PC, so I can only unscrew them so far untill they won't come out at all
there are a LOT of screws, including some around the cables, fan, on the sides etc
DO I just unscrew EVERYTHING
2nd thing:after I put the 2nd HD & rearrange it so it is in the "slave" slots, I turn my Computer on, do I then place the Data Lifeguard Tools CD that came with the new HD?
or does the PC automatically installs & formats the new Hard Drive??
I'm REALLY desperate, as I'm not very knowledgable in this stuff & fear I will ruin my PC or some how mess up all my files & programs
ANY HELP would be much appreciated
