I have a Toshiba P15-S420
It's a friend of mines. He poured a glass of red wine in it (D'oh!) and he's pretty much given up on it working but has asked me to pull the drive out of it to see if we can mount it in a USB 2 Extrernal Drive case and salvage some of the data.
Where do I find the hard disk and how can I get the drive out of the notebook?
What I've Tried So Far in Attempts to Find It:
-Removed the Battery
-Removed the RAM Cover
-Removed the WiFi Card Cover
-Removed the Fan/Heat Sink Cover
-Taken most of the screws out of the bottom - but i cant seem to get the bottom plastic cover off.
-Searched the internet looking for a manual with useful info or tips relating to this model.
No luck so far.
What I haven't tried so far (for fear of breaking it):
-Removing the CD-ROM drive. Can't seem to find any screws holding it in but it sure won't come out.
-Removing the Keyboard.
If the thing powered up I could "feel" where it was spinning so at least I'd have an idea of where it is. But no luck there.
Also, I could pop open the CD-ROM drive to see if there was a hidden screw there somewhere.
