English to Russian: How to Replace Your Laptop Hard Drive (excerpt)
General field: Tech/Engineering
Detailed field: Computers: Hardware
Source text - English
On some laptops, switching drives is as easy as undoing a latch, sliding the drive caddy out, removing a couple of screws, swapping drives, and then repeating the previous steps in reverse. But on other machines, the hard drive is buried under the keyboard or motherboard, without an access panel. Dealing with this type of design entails removing dozens of screws, the keyboard deck, the keyboard, the motherboard, and many parts and connectors. Fortunately, the latter scenario has become significantly rarer in recent years.

The best place to start when you want to upgrade or replace your hard drive is with the user's guide for your laptop. If the disk-swapping procedure is simple, the guide will tell you how to do it. In that case, you won't need any further help, though some of the tips offered here may make the operation easier and safer for you and the equipment.

Замена жесткого диска в некоторых ноутбуках производится просто: отжать защелку, выдвинуть блок , выкрутить пару винтов, заменить диск и повторить все в обратном порядке. В других же моделях жесткий диск погребен под клавиатурой или материнской платой без панели доступа. Имея дело с подобным дизайном, приходится выкручивать десятки винтов, снимать крышку, клавиатуру, материнскую плату и большое количество прочих частей и разъемов. К счастью, второй сценарий встречается все реже в последние годы.

Если вы хотите обновить или заменить жесткий диск, легче всего начинать с руководства пользователя для вашего ноутбука. Если процедура замены диска проста - в руководстве будет написано как это сделать.В этом случае вам не потребуется никакая дополнительная помощь, однако некоторые из предлагаемых здесь советов могут сделать процесс проще и безопаснее и для вас и для техники.
