Page 21 of the manual I found on HP's site at http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00841410.pdf shows how to get the drive frame out.
Can I ask if you tried the HP.com site?
I have an HP Pavilion a6750t less than 2 years old. HP Diagnostic Tool says the hard drive is failing. It is working ok but I Googled the error code and the answers were PC Doctor is usually right. I opened the case to see how it is setup. I've worked with IDE but this is Sata. The drive is inside a metal frame that looks like it should not be removed. Connections to the Motherboard are very close to the side of the drive where the 2 screws on the hard drive are located. The HP site does not show a frame around the hard drive in their instructions. Is anyone familiar with this setup? Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your reply and the link. I want to answer your question before I go there. I did go to HP site. They have instructions with pictures and a video on how to replace a hard drive for both HP and Compaq PC's. Neither, however, showed a metal frame around the hard drive and I was afraid to proceed on my own. Perhaps I just did not get to the right place. Thank you again for the link.
