take the screws out of the back plate to the hard drive, then grab the flap on the side of the drive slide it forward then out. remove the brackets and sata adapter of the old one attach to the new hard drive and put it all back together.

Then it is up to you to install the Operating System

I know, the procedure is similar. I can not find your model on net, so my pictures are just references. Can you post some screen shot here?
