Check the bottom of the laptop there should be two panels with screws. One bigger than the other. The smaller one is for ram. The bigger one is the hard drive. Unscrew carefully and take the panel off. The carefully unplug the hard drive. Check for further assitance or check the users manual, the info is there.
