    Flip the notebook over...look for any/all screws.... remove.  One of them is a cover to the hardrive.

    thats not it, this has no easy access to hard drive.

    You have to remove the keyboard to access to the internal.
    Look at the manual here, section how to upgrade/replace RAM, it has some images showing how to disassemly the laptop. I believe you can access the drive the same way.
