    I'm sorry i was not clear enough in my first question. i know how to replace a hard drive, what i was looking for was how to get the case on the silly PC apart. there was some sort of code or somenting, two of us were looking at it and could not find how the case came appart. then just about when we were going to give up, the top piece on the case moves to the right. it has a slide lock sort of system that when we moved it to the right it came off and allowed us to ght to the additional screws to remove the rest of the case and expose the hard drive and other interior components. thanks for your help anyways.

Replacing a hard drive is very simple. A hard drive will have two connectors a one for power(small plug usually white with 4 holes ), and an IDE cable that looks like a ribbon. You just have to remove the cables from the old hard drive and plug them into the new one.
An IDE cable looks like this(clcik here)
You see the four holes next to the IDE cable? Thats where the power connector is plugged in. Let me know if you need anything else.
Good luck!

Replacing hard drive

Well first of all does it have a Hard Drive or what they call the Solid State Drive (SSD) which looks like a wireless card or some type of circuit board?

Next thing is where is the drive located, no matter which type, where is it? On most systems the drive is on the bottom of the laptop, so all you have to do is remove the screws from the cover that houses the drive. Normally the cover will have the icon of 3 circular discs on it.

Sometimes the drive, no matter which type, will be located under the plamrest or keyboard, when means you have to take the unit apart to get to it.

OK, you're in luck.. I checked your manual and it says you have a 60GB SATA Hard Drive, but it did not say where it was located.
