    Thanks for the reply. Turn your pc over, Near the front you will see the hard drive door with 2 or 3 rubber feet close by. (center of your notebook.)



    Remove the rubber covers

    Remove the screws - 2 or 3 2.5mmx6.0mm screws

    Pull the hard drive out of the notebook.



    To install just reverse the processo.



    Good Luck

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.

How do i remove a harddrive from a computer case when only one side has screws to remove? Details: Okay so i'm trying to remove a hard drive from a computer case that only has screws on the back right...


In this case the hard drive is mounted in a frame. Look for mounting screws that locks this frame to the computer case. When you remove this frame you can access the screws holding the hard drive.

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.

I think it is the same as HP. When you undo the cover just pull it right out by the small plastic. No screws holding the drive.

How to remove hard drive from Fujitsu Lifebook N3010 PC laptop


Remove the DVD drive, and then there are 4 outer screws holding the hard drive chassis in place. There are also 4 inner screws that hold the hard drive to the removable hard drive chassis, those do not have to be removed to remove the hard drive from the computer. Carefully remove the screws so they don't fall into the holes on the sides of the screws, and then slide the hard drive out of the pin slots.
