Can you still replace hard drives on Windows-based laptops these days? I assume so. Just buy a new one off Newegg, unscrew the HDD bay, plop the new one in and you should be good to go.
Provided they haven’t sealed them completely these days like they do with Crapple products.
We’ve ordered another hard drive. We didn’t think to check whether the thing can be opened or not. I hope it can. I don’t want to try to open myself and risk breaking the computer. The real problem is that stupidly, I never backed up the hard drive. So I have lost everything I put on there for that past 10 months. 😦
