To get to the hard drive, you only have to remove one screw on the bottom. Pictures are worth a thousand words - so, even though it's in Russian, the following YouTube video clearly shows how to remove the hard drive (at about the 2 minute mark on the video).

Cant open my hard drive in my laptop


Locate the power cable and USB cable that came with your hard drive.



Connect cables to the appropriate locations on the back of the hard drive.

Sometimes a USB cable doubles as the power source, so you might not need a wall outlet to power the device.



Turn on your computer and allow your operating system time to load before continuing.

Plug the hard drive into the power outlet if necessary, but wait on powering up the device.



Connect the USB cable to the computer while the hard drive is in the "Off" position.

If the USB cable doubles as the power source, the device might turn itself on once connected.



Turn on the hard drive and wait until the hardware has been detected by the operating system. A message should pop up that lets you know new hardware has been detected.



Click on the "Start" menu and go to "My Computer."



Notice all your disk drives are listed in this window. The external hard drive should be visible, and holding the mouse cursor over the location will help you locate the correct drive.


Right click on the location of the drive, and move the cursor to "Open" or "Explore" and click.


Hope this helps

Remove a hard drive


Depending upon your model laptop, the hard drive may be located behind a panel on the bottom of the laptop or it may be located on the side of the laptop and the retaining screw/s will be on the bottom of the laptop.
When you remove the panel the hard drive will be screwed to a hard drive caddy. Remove the screws on the caddy to release the hard drive. Keep these screws as you will need them to fix the hard drive to the caddy.

Where is the location & how to remove the hard drive for toshiba satelite P15-S470


Hi,

The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.

1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you'll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you'll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you'll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.

Locate the hard disk


Laptop hard drives are mainly located underneath. A screw holding down a plastic lid covers the drive. In some cases of older laptops the hard drive is slot mounted and you'll have to remove screws underneath and/or on the side to release the drive followed by pushing a switch which well push the drive out.
