However I plucked up enough courage after reading the Users instructions to Find that I have a Clevo M56a Model A
I have taken out the battery as per instructions and removed HD but not removed connection yet.
HD is as follows: HITACHI Travelstar Model: HTS721080G9SA00 7200RPM 5V 1.1A DC 80GB SATA
P/N 0A25026 MLC DA1373 (16383CYL. 16HEADS. 63SEC/T)
Can I have this tested or take it that it is kaput?
shall I go ahead and complete disconnection, which I will have to do to replace?
Thanks for help
Once you have removed the hard drive cover on the laptop you will see, or should, the hard drive encased in a metal chassis.
This chassis may have a single screw holding it in place which you need to remove and then slide the hard drive backwards, there may be a kind of attached tag to allow you to do so.
Tell us if you see this please.

Hitachi Travelstar HD
info on HD: Model HTS721080G9SA00 7200RPM... 5V 1.1A DC 80GB SATA

Can I relace with different RPM and higher GB?

The drive has to be a laptop drive which is a 2.5 inch in size but you should be able to go to a 160 or even 320 gig in capacity.

I have an older Clevo Laptop which I haven't been able to find the user manual for.
I have taken the battery out but cannot find how to n-install Hd which looks to be the same but the make etc must be on the reverse side.
If I can take this out I might be able to use it...The 8880 will not operate when plugged into mains...only battery charging light shows .
I'm assuming it is dead so thought HD could be used in the Clevo M56a.
any clues as to where I can find the manual it does not seem to be on Clevo list.?

correct user manual downloaded (8880) unfortunately HD connections completly different...
New laptop Im afraid..
Never mind I have learnt a great deal from all the very instructive and helpful posts.
I hope I can help someone in the future.

As the M56a is slightly newer that the 8880 I thought that the HD would fit the M56a.
As it doesn't and as I have lost any info that I hadn't copied to dongles etc . I will give it to my local computer shop for spares.
The 8880 I will try and update as although older than the M56a can be useful.
I hope that clears that up
Again thanks for all the help.
