I just bought three new sticks of ram because my computer had been runing slow for a long time. MY friends says, " A monkey can put this in." but when I got the the HP manual, I discovred that I had to disconnect everything inside the computer and pull the hard drive out the front. Not real easy. Then there is a quagmire of bound unused cables and connectors crammed inside making everything hard to get to and see clearly,
so you really have to remember what you disconnected and where it goes back. Apparently I didn't remember that well. I hooked it all back up and booted it up and the screen says that I can not contniue to recover because NO HARD DRIVE IS FOUND! Anybody got a diagram or can tell me which cable missed? Also,IF I get this fixed, is it possible to access an external hard drive at boot up so that I can use the fresh back up file instead of the OEM disc??

All you have to do is get the cabling right. There are only two cables to the HDD...power & data. The power plug can only connect one way but depending on the type of drive, it's possible to get the data plug upside-down.
