Read http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7587_102-0.html?forumID=69&threadID=271360&messageID=2699006#2699006 to see HP give the exact steps needed.
Get that from HP as the steps vary with each model.
I have a HP R3140us and the hard died so I ordered a new one and some ramm to go along with it. My question is once I have downloaded the drivers from the hp website.... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&dest_page=product&product=408400 Do I need to burn them on a cd in any specific order? How about connecting an usb drive. I guess I need some help I've never done a new hard drive without the original install driver disk from manufacturer.
Any tips and tricks that you smarties have learned over the years that might save me a headache would be appreciated!!!
