In the battery compartment, find the phillips screw that is holding the rear panel onto the computer. Unscrew it. With the battery compartment closest to you, push the panel away from you. Once it slides back until it stops, gently lift it and put it to the side. Please note that this particular screw does not completely come out, it stays with the rear panel and that is ok.

When putting the cover back in, make sure that the hard drive cable is not in the way.

Remove the two silver phillips screws from the hard drive. Using the plastic tab, remove the hard drive from its socket. Unplug the hard drive from the wire connecting it to the motherboard.
