Removing and
Replacing Drives
Your PC includes several drives that you can replace
or upgrade. See "Locating Components Inside the PC"
on page 4.
CAUTION: Back up your personal files on
the hard disk drive to an external
storage device, such as a CD, before
removing the hard disk drive. Failure to
do so will result in data loss. After
replacing the hard disk drive, you need
to run System Recovery using the
recovery discs to load the factory-
installed files. See the User's Guide for
details about the recovery procedure.
You can add an optical drive to an empty lower
optical bay.
Before adding a new optical drive,
IMPORTANT:
make sure that it is compatible with the Microsoft

Windows
XP operating system. Also, make sure you
have the correct software and drivers for the optical
drive to work with the operating system.
