  • Remove the battery.
  • Turn your computer over.
  • Remove the 5 Torx screws holding the hard drive in place.
  • Turn the computer right side up.
  • Release the keyboard by gently pulling forward (towards you) on the top row of keys.
  • Gently fold the keyboard forward (towards you) so that it lies upside down on the table. DO NOT PULL ON THE KEYBOARD. Keep the ribbon tucked in the case, otherwise you will need to tuck them back in.
  • Release the hard drive by pulling the left flap of the protective sheet to the right as shown.
  • Gently lift up on the left flap and remove the hard drive. Do not remove the protective sheet.
  • Place the new hard drive into the compartment.
  • f your new hard drive is from a different manufacturer than the old one, it may have screws in different positions. Determine which mounting holes you need; then, if necessary, push out rubber screw- hole covers from the inside using a bent paper clip. (From the outside of the computer, insert the rubber covers into the holes you won’t need.) If your new hard drive has screws in different positions from the old one, you will also need to adjust the insulator sheet. Compare the location of the screw-holes in the new hard drive with those in the insulator sheet. If there is no screw at position A, then unfold the flap at position A, and lay it flat before laying the hard drive down on the insulator.
  • Grasp the right flap and pull to the left to engage the connection between the hard drive and the computer. Then fold the protective sheet back over the hard drive.
  • Place the keyboard into place by engaging the four front tabs on the keyboard into the four slots in the computer case. Make sure the ribbon cables slide into the recessed openings and do not extend back under the keyboard.
