Question about Toshiba Satellite 1715XCDS Cooling Fan (k000882360) Laptop Cooler
The bottom of the laptop has two covers; one is the battery and the other covers the RAM. How do I get to the hard drive on this model laptop? There are no other access hatches.
Can only find one manual for this machine and the download is only compatible with Windows ME. The hard drive is located in the front left hand corner of the machine. Look at the front for a retangular panel, held by two screws, that slides out. Also, with some of the older Toshibas to acess the drive, you had to remove the plastic that surrounds the keyboard, holding the mouse buttons.

Tips for a great answer:
Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.
Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.
Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.
Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.
Replace the opened cover.
Replace the battery and power cord.
Turn on the computer.
The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.
Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.
hope this helps
