Note: taking the case of the laptop will void your warranty.
Firstly turn your Advent 6520 laptop/notebook upside down as shown on the diagram below
Then you need to unscrew the screw that the screwdriver is pointing at as shown below
Remove the plastic plate, and you will see this
Next you will need to unscrew the two screws on the right. Then lift this part carefully out
and turn over.. and you will see the hard drive.
Now the most important part before ordering a new hard drive you need to read the actual specification ie measurements/dimension of the existing
2.5 inch drives come in many shapes and sizes. When you have made a note of this go and order your new drive from dabs.com, they sell 40 gig
and 60 gig as at time
The most important dimension to worry about is the height of the new drive, this has to be exact or else the new drive may not fit in the bay.
And that is all there is to it. Install new drive as normal and voila. Back up all your data before hand though especially my documents,
favourites, emails, program file settings and list of passwords etc to get on your favourite sites.
