Customer Question
I have the hard drive...
I have the hard drive visible on my Toshiba laptop, but I'm not sure how to pull it out. It doesn't slide out easily and I'm afraid of forcing it and breaking anything. What's the proper technique to pulling it out?

It's a Satellite A215-S5837

Do you need a serial number as well?

That link instructs you how to disassemble the display panel, not simply how to remove the hard drive. It tells you to remove it, but not necessarily how.

Do I just slide it to the left and lift? That's the only kind of information I need.
Tech Support Specialist: Sibu, Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
Yes

just try to slide and pull up the hard disk

this is on my account and should not be. I do not know this person.

 

Please tell me who I should talk to about this.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
