I have a Tiny A440 Laptop which is an old work laptop. I have a problem with the hard drive and would like to replace it. The problem is I dont know what type of hard drive i need to buy. If anybody could find this out for me I would be extremely greatful.

Thank you

How easy is it to remove?

If in a caddy on the underside, unscrew slide out caddy remove drive from caddy by removing the (4) screws and check the type on the label on the drive (probly toshiba / fujitsu)

To install an Operating System.

It may not be worth buying one so you will need Acronis, or similar, to Image the old Drive and install everything, including the Hidden Partition, onto the new Drive.
