Hi all, this time it will be a very easy DIY or more or less how to re-use the old HDD drive.
When my laptop dies (HP DV 6000 series) – btw a lot of them were dying because the graphic card was heated too much, and overall the whole laptop was not a good design.
What you need to reuse it, is an external enclosure designed for a 2.5-inch SATA drive.
– USB 3.0 Hard Drive External Enclosure Case 2.5 inch SATA
Total prize: €3,64
Note: Price may differ, above showing the price in the time of my order.
STEP 1: Detach the HDD from laptop
STEP 2: Remove any brackets and screws
STEP 3: Install the HDD into new enclosure
STEP 4: Connect USB cable
STEP 5: Test the HDD
And that’s all – easy huh?
