Inleiding

Use this guide to replace a full or faulty hard drive in your ASUS CM1745 Desktop PC.

The hard drive is a piece of hardware that store and retrieves data in your computer. A failing hard drive can cause your desktop to produce irregular noises and/or continuous crashes and error massages like “file not found” or “Windows detected a hard disk problem.” In some cases, your computer may not boot at all if it experiences hard drive failure.

Before using this guide, make sure to review the troubleshooting page – oftentimes, malware or corrupted files can be fixed without replacing the hard drive.

If your hard drive is full or you are running on low storage, you may want to consider upgrading your hard drive. Follow instructions here to see how much storage space you have left.

Please be advised that this replacement guide requires working on the internals of the PC; this could void any remaining warranty.

For this guide, the items needed for this replacement include a Philips #0 Screwdriver and a 1 TB SATA Desktop Hard Drive.

Be sure to back up your hard drive before replacing it, so you do not lose any data while you’re doing the replacement. This guide also requires close proximity work to exposed electronics. Make sure to power off your desktop completely and disconnect from any external power source prior to beginning the process.
