How to change the hard drive and optical drive laptop

This video tutorial teaches you how to change the hard drive and optical drive on a Dell laptop, of course this method is common for most brands (Toshiba, HP, Acer, etc), here we except ultrabooks and netbooks that are more compact and have the hard drive mounted differently. But to give you an idea about how to change the hard drive and a netbook or ultrabook, I invite you to watch the tutorial: How to change hard drive on Asus netbook.
What I want to achimbam hard drive in a laptop?
Responses can be varied:
1. We want more storage capacity on your laptop.
2. Old hard drive is not working properly, the shocks can damage various parts inside the laptop is mobile device (common problem)
3. We want to change it with an SSD, to offer a new latop's life (big difference).
My recommendation for those who already have a desktop storage would be to replace the HDD with an SSD, it must be at least 120GB, one is not enough Windows60 7 and 8. Even those old laptops instead change all laptop could change only hard drive with an SSD, the change will be incredible to be a new laptop.
For those who do not have a desktop and laptop is used including for storing personal data (documents, pictures, movies, music, etc), however we recommend a fast high capacity hard disk (750GB or 1TB). Hard disk quickly 7200 means revolutions per minute and larger buffer. There are on the market, emergent and hybrid hard disk, they would be the perfect compromise between the speed of a SSD and a HDD storage capacity. Hard drive hybrid structure is a normal hard disk + 8 GB of NAND flash memory, just like the one used in SSDs. The most frequently accessed data placed in NAND call for a load much faster, much the same system as for technology Intel Smart Response which I presented it recently in a video tutorial
Remember
Before any change is recommended to save all data on external devices or on DVDs.
Along with changing the hard drive you have two options, either make a backup of the operating system on your old hard drive that you can restore it on the new one, or install a fresh operating system, it is also my recommendation if possible.

Recommendation hard hybrid HDD + SSD
Laptop Hard Disk Seagate SSHD THIN ST1000LM014, 1TB (HYBRID)

Recommendation SSD Laptop:
Flash SSD Kingston V300 2.5 ″, 120GB, SATA 3 (Perfect for laptops)

    How about a tutorial to replace the optical drive in a laptop with a hdd?

    • Alex Craigslist said

      The plug from the optical drive is different from that of one hard disk. Eventually, it may be possible with an adapter made by hand, so do not think that there is something on the market. Anyway the idea is very good and I could be interested in it. If it were possible to connect two hard drives instead of optical drive for usual optical drive amperage would be sufficient for some laptop hard drives. Space would not be a problem.

    SSD is a very good laptop but will not be able to use it to full capacity. More suitable is why I recommended above, and cheaper.
    SATA controller on laptops is not as fast as the desktop.

    Inform you that: we each write one title and text tutorial. I am not responsible for the title given by my colleague Cristi and he in turn is responsible for the title given to me. If he wrote wrong, it's wrong and if I write wrong, the mistake is mine. However, if I see something wrong and Cristi, I communicate, and vice versa.
