Flip the Laptop over, remove Battery and remove memory cover.

Remove all screws, including single screw inside memory cover and 3 screww howing in DVD drive.
Cover lifts easily off with no problems.
Hard drive is on front left at the bottom, undo 2 remaining crews and use tab to lift hard drive and slide to the left and out.

Assembly is reverse, you may need to locate DVD drive to fix screws.
