I have an HP Pavilion Slimline S3600F PC that I need to change the RAM on.  The hard drive is blocking the ram.  I can find many screws around the hard drive but cannot believe it is this difficult to pull the hard drive out of the way.
Can anyone either provide instructions or point me to an area where I can find instructions on removing this piece.
