First and foremost be sure it is off and the battery is removed.

To remove the hard drive on the hp pavilion ze5000 turn the laptop upside down.
On the end of the laptop next to the lid release is the hard drive.
It is secured by three screws.
Two are in plain site remove them as well as the hidden one.
With the laptop upside down facing you there is a rubber stop directly above the hood release switch.
Pry it out with a precision, very small, flat blade screw driver. After the rubber piece is removed unscrew the screw that it was hiding.
With the three screws removed you should be able to pull/slide the hard drive out.

Can the hard disk be damaged after removing battery to force shutdown

Not likely to be physically damaged -- strong magnets will pull the read/write components away from the recording surface.
However, the "logical integrity" of the file-system may need to be checked/repaired, by using the Windows 'CHKDSK' ("check disk") built-in software program.

My mouse and keyboard freeze up momentarily EXACTLY every three seconds. Re-installing the OS twice didn't help. Wiped HD and installed again still didn't help. Computer is an HP ze5000 laptop.

need more input to isolate the problem... does this occur when on power... does this occur when not on power... if ur system is old then is there lint settled within ur fan vents... all remaining the same seeing such a precise count i would suggest get the mobo cleaned up and checked for dust and i would conclude that u either need a BIOS update a BIOS reset or a hardware assistance... hardware assistance in any form for laptop would be to replace the MOBO costly!
