Deck the Halls
With tools and Fix Kits
Using a plastic opening tool, pry the plastic casing away from the base of the computer, the remaining clips around the edges can be released using your hands. Leave the side with the USB and audio port until last, then slide the case out and off, so the audio port doesn't get caught.

My internal hard drive does not get detected sometimes. I had this same problem a few months back. Upon getting it repaired by computer technician, I was told the issue was in the hard drive cover which connects the SSD to the PC. The issue got fixed at a cost of $100. I am not sure what that meant but the same issue has returned.

I don't believe I have to replace my solid state drive. Can anyone offer me any solutions?
