Dell Inspiron 7000 (7568) Hard Drive / RAM Upgrade / Removal / Replacement / Break Down Procedures

[WPXperVideo id=111 ]today we’re going to do a hard drive upgrade on a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series this specific model is model seven five six eight it’s probably similar on other models that are similar to this one but this specific model that’s the information for it so this one the battery’s internal so you can’t just simply remove the battery but what you can do is remove this bottom panel these are standard Phillips head screws so I’m going to use a standard Phillips head screwdriver and go ahead and remove all these screws on the bottom you’re going to remove one two three four five six seven eight nine ten now that the screws are removed we’re going to pop this bottom cover off normally you would use a spudger which I don’t have so I’m going to try using a a giftcard slash credit card you’re going to want to gently separate the space between the bottom cover and the frame of the notebook I normally try to find a space that’s already got a bit of an opening to work with like over by the USB ports so I’ll use my credit card or gift card whatever you’re using to try to separate the space here in between the HDMI port and the frame like so okay and then as you do that you work your way around let’s start to pop off take your time do it nice and gently no rush and it will come off just work your way all the way around the entire laptop got most of it off now except for the back area here and there you go that removes the cover the back cover or a bottom cover I should say you and here you’ll find you have the memory swap and over here is the hard drive today we’re upgrading the hard drive if you want to upgrade the memory though it’s pretty simple it’s right here just simply remove that memory replace it with whatever you’re going to upgrade it with this specific model comes with an 8 gig stick it could probably upgrade it to 16 but I haven’t verified that yet now under normal circumstances I would say to disconnect the battery before proceeding however in my case since I’m just doing the hard drive I’m going to be very careful not to touch any parts of the circuit board with my tools and I’m simply going to remove this hard drive and upgrade it with a new one without disconnecting the battery you can choose to do so if you like if you’re worried that you might short something out it would definitely be a good idea to remove the battery I’ve done this enough time so I feel confident I can do this without removing the battery to remove the hard drive you’re going to remove this screw here we’re also going to remove this screw here there’s also a third screw right back here that you need to remove now that although all three of those screws are removed you should be able to simply lift up on this hard drive carefully and pull out the data cable behind it carefully again like so now to swap out this hard drive I’m going to swap it out with an SSD specifically have a crucial m500 I’ll be replacing it with it’s lowering capacity but as you probably know with an SSD you’re gaining greatly in procurements so you simply remove these four screws and you’re going to want to put the hard drive back in this little caddy that it’s in the exact same way so I’m going to go ahead and remove the screws now I’m going to move my laptop to the side so it’s not the drop any screws in it okay now if those four screws are removed this sort of kind of like caddy comes right off and if you look at the way the hard drives put in you simply put the new hard drive in the exact same way and reattach your screws okay hard drive is installed in the caddy now we just simply reverse our procedures on the installation or for the installation by doing the following so I’m going to move my hard drive to the side bring my laptop back in place okay and we’re going to reattach the data cable as so now we’re going to gently place our hard drive back in place lining it up with the same screw holes you should feel it snap into place so to say and we’re going to use our same screws that we removed earlier to reattach it to the chassis of the laptop that concludes the installation of the hard drive so we’re going to carefully grab our lid it’s not really like the bottom but we’re going to carefully put this back in place on the motherboard making sure that no cables or wires are sticking out which in my case there is not I feel comfortable placing this cover back on and basically it just snaps in place so you’re simply going to snap it in place all the way around like so okay and then check your check all the way around make sure it looks like it’s sealed properly no gaps in my case it looks good so I’m going to go ahead and replace the screws there again there are ten of them finish putting your screws in power up and start your operating system and you should be good to go thanks for watching you

[WPXperVideo id=39 ]okay in this video we’ll show you how to do a full factory restore on a dell inspiron computer and this will work with pretty much any dell inspiron laptop or desktop that you may have it’ll actually work with Dell netbooks and Dell latitudes as well so it’s just not just not just for the dell inspiron this particular model you can usually find the model on the bottom this one is a dell inspiron 1764 but again it will work on the Inspiron 15 45 s or whatever deal that you have the whole purpose of doing a factory restore is to make it fresh from factory just like you were buying it right from a retail box at Best Buy or Walmart so you’re just trying to get it back to that you might want to do it just because you want to resell it or you want to give it to a Fant friend or family member you just may want to start out fresh you might have a virus or a Trojan horse that you can’t get rid of so you want to refresh it maybe got a whole bunch of files you just don’t want to delete spend all the time deleting it so you just want to go ahead and get rid of that so we’ll go ahead and show you what it is is the majority of the newer computers and I say newer meaning the last five to eight years they started putting the operating system whether that be Windows 8 Windows 7 Windows Vista and of course now Windows 10 on the actual hard drive itself and most laptops have a SATA hard drive like this the older ones are called IDE and then of course now you got the SSD drives which are really quick and smaller but they actually put the windows 7 operating disk or your operating system on the hard drive itself the reason they do that is to avoid parting because what would happen is someone would get a you know it in the retail box that would come with the DVD that had one at seven and they would put it on multiple computers you know that didn’t actually have the license on it so they do that in order to avoid pirating okay so this is a pretty easy step you want to make sure that you you want to make sure that your laptop is plugged in because it won’t work without it being plugged in and it takes a while usually takes about 30 minutes to do a full factory restore on a computer so what you want to do is when you turn it on you want to tap the f8 button which it’ll be on the top and it’s pretty obvious F isn’t Frank eight and you could do it two ways when you see the Dell logo you could tap the f8 or you could just hold it down so let’s go ahead and try it okay and you might actually have to try it a couple of times didn’t work that time and you might hear some beeping again same problem huh I mean why didn’t let me all right so what you’re going to do is it’ll give you the very first option is repair my computer so you go ahead and click enter and that should take you it’ll say Windows is loading files and that actually took me a little bit longer than actually showing the video it took me 8 times 8 to 10 times it took me to stop it and restart it and to hit f8 so a lot of times you have to play around with it it should definitely give you an option to repair my computer even if the operating system for whatever reason is not on the partition so you know a lot of times these laptops hack stubborn alright so what you want to do is is System Recovery and then put your country and then you want click Next and it’s got your username and password if you don’t have a password leave it blank or if you do go ahead with the password click OK the username password is incorrect interesting ok click owner all right now it’ll give you a different options System Restore what a System Restore does is it brings it back to adult ago what will happen is your computer will set up in order it gives images to where you could take it back before you got a virus or whatever so we won’t do that the system injury recovery what you want to do is Dell factory image restore let’s see let’s go ahead and try that all right System Restore this utility or store your system software to the state it was in when it left the factory in order to return the system to the factory state all personal files will be overwritten so keep that in mind if you have any pictures videos stuff that you want to save I recommend you go ahead and doing that or it will all be lost what you can do is you can purchase you in like a little USB Drive memory stick you can get it at Walgreens or drugstores or Walmart for like 10 or 15 bucks this is 16 gigs and what you could do is you could just move all your files over there to your USB Drive so after you do that you just click Next warning it gives you another warning again it’s going to erase everything and then you say yes reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory conditions next and so that’s what it’s doing Alex restoring the its restoring my laptop back to factory ok thank you for watching if you have any questions put it in the comment section
