Replace Hard Drive in Compaq Presario 2700?

Threaded View

I own a Compaq Presario 2700 (the exact model is 2715EA). The hard drive has
been making some very strange noises recently, and so I have purchased a
replacement before it fails completely and would like to swap it over.
However, I cannot see how to remove the old drive.

I have had a search of the newsgroups and have found a couple of posts
referencing to a maintenance and service guide for the Evo N800 or Presario
2800, but neither seem to help as they show the hard drive in a bay in the
side of the laptop, which isn't the case for me.

If anyone can help, I would be extremely grateful.

Many thanks in advance.

I've managed to resolve this issue now. I found a post that suggests that
the 2700 is like the N180 and *not* the N800. This is totally true. :-)
