Reseat Hard Disk HP MINI 210-4120ea

I've tried looking but I can't seem to find instructions on how to reseat the hard disk for this particular model. Can anyone give me a link or just explain it? Thanks in advance

I have done this procedure and all I can say is be careful. The Minis are fragile.

Does the back look like this?

 

 

There is only one service manual for the Mini 210 so I am assuming they are all the same.

Thanks for the link. I reseated my hard disk just now, but I still get "Error Hard Disk No Exist". Would you happen to know where I can get a replacement hard disk and how much it'll set me back?

It will take any laptop 2.5 inch wide and 9 mm thick SATA hard drive. I like to buy mine on newegg.com.

 

Go for a 7200 rpm model. It peps up the netbook quite a bit which can never hurt:

 

For $60 you can't go wrong with this one:

The hard part with a netbook is restoring software. The best thing is to make a bootable usb flash drive with Windows on it for installation. Post back if you need help with that.

Thank you for all your help. I should be fine with the OS, I've sorted a few out before
