You have to push down the green thing and in the same time pull the hard drive. the green plastic gadget blocks the screws. So when you pull down they wil be released. Just take your time.

good luck

How do I remove the 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.

When i turn on y tower on it says error loading operating system what do i do to fix this problem please help


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the computer and Windows installed and the Dell's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning Dell computer again.

I HAVE A COMPUTER TOWER THAT THE HARD DRIVE NO LONGER WORKS. A CO WORKER WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE TOWER AND PUT IN ANOTHER HARD DRIVE. MY QUESTION IS IS THERE ANY THING STORED IN THE COMPUTER OTHER THAN WHAT...


Only a hard drive can contain the data. Other storage mediums are CD, USB flash drive and cards. If your system has any of these, you will easily spot and remove them.

Turning to the hard drive, a computer can have more than one installed so be sure to remove each one before giving it to the other person. No hard drive means NO information stored so be assured.

How do I get the hard drive out


1 Unplug the computer. As a safety precaution the hard drive removal should not be attempted while the computer is still plugged into the house current.
2 Pull the cover off the computer. This should be as simple as removing a few screws and sliding off the cover. If the process seems more involved that this, then consult your owner’s manual for the computer.
3
Locate the hard drive.The hard drive usually comes in the shape of a black-plastic rectangular box enclosed in a metal casing. It is linked to other components by a unique connecting device that is easily recognizable. This device is a long plastic ribbon-like cord that has a long interlocking and connecting device attached to it.
4 Remove the metal housing. This should be as simple as removing a few screws.
5
Disconnect the hard drive. All you have to do is pull the interlocking end of the lock ribbon cord until it coves free. This should not require an extraordinary amount of strength. It is similar to pulling an electrical cord from a wall socket.

  • Step 6 Unscrew anything that is still holding the hard drive in place and then pull the hard drive unit out of the computer. Now you can externally hook the hard drive to another computer to double check the data base. For this you will need an external holder, which you can purchase for $25 to $50 at your local computer store. Or you can add the hard drive unit to the inside of another computer tower.
