Change HDD on my netbook HP Mini 110-1190 by Studio Tord Boontje PC

Hello Experts,

I have a netbook (HP Mini 110-1190 by Studio Tord Boontje PC) that presents a HDD failure. I obviously want to replace the HDD but I am not sure if it is even possible.

(I have dissembled PC's and laptops before but I have never done this on a netbook).  

The netbook is very compact and has very few screws. I can only access directly to the RAM modules by unscrewing a rectangular cover but there is no other cover to access the HDD , unless I take the 4 big screws from each corner of the netbook... but I am not sure where it takes me. I haven't done it yet. I am afraid I will end up with completely gutted netbook and no access to the HDD I want to replace.  (Please look at the attached images as it is easier to see what I mean).    

I hope it's not all "glued" together. In such case it would be a definite basket case.

I am hoping for the best and prepare for the worst. I appreciate your time and effort!

Kind regards,

hex

Well, ... that was embarrassing! I checked HP forums, Blogs and the EE pool of articles and wasn't smart enough to check in YouTube!  I usually never watch YouTube because I thought it is full of non-educational stuff... I thought of it as a waste of time like facebook. Man I was wrong !! Thank you very much for pointing it out and most of all for your quick and friendly reply!! I am happy to know I can fix the netbook and probably give it to my step-daughter.

Kind regards,
