Replacing a Powerbook Hard Drive

The new hard drive for our Powerbook 667 arrived Saturday along with a few special tools. In no time I had the Powerbook back up and running.

It wasn’t that hard actually. Especially after watching one of Other World Computing’s videos. I just had to remove a few screws (with a special Torx Screwdriver) and I managed to get everything taken apart. The new drive fit right in and then I just replaced what screws I removed. Done!

After that, I installed the OS and the Powerbook was back to operational! Added a few applications and it was perfect.

I guess this makes me a bigger computer geek since I know have done internal work. 😉
