Hi Everyone,

          After hours of exhausting troubleshooting of a HDD issue of an  Acer Aspire 5315-2326 , I have come to the conclusion the HDD needs to be uninstalled and a new one put in.  With that in mind, could someone provide a direct youtube link which gives an audio/video demonstration of the necessary procedures for carrying out this goal?

           Thank you.

    Hi Everyone,

                Using the well outlined steps along with graphical illustrations contained within the link given by Rob in conjunction with the following link of, I was able to successfully removed the defective HDD and replace it with a new HDD without issues.  To my pleasant surprise, it was actually easier than expected which is always nice after having a series of struggles with troubleshooting.  

                 Many thanks once again for the help on this one.
