Toshiba Laptop Hard Drive Replacement.

Replacing the hard drive in a Toshiba laptop seems complicated, but I assure you this is one of the easiest upgrade or repair  you can make to your laptop.  Below are a series of photos showing you how to complete the process for hard drive replacement. There is also a video which shows you step by step how to, as well.

The only tool you will need is a miniature Philips head screw driver.

Before you begin the upgrade/repair, you must first remove the battery.

The hard drive is located on the opposite side as the VGA and LAN internet connection.

Remove the F5 screw at the bottom of the laptop.

Once the F5 screw is removed, take the hard drive cover off. Then proceed to remove the 3 screws that holds the hard drive in-place.

Remove the hard drive from the housing.  

Place the new hard drive in the old housing and proceed to secure the hard drive in the laptop.

Don't forget to install the screws in the housing of the hard drive.

These screws keep the hard drive secure in the housing.

Install the housing with the hard drive back into the laptop, and secure the hard drive by installing the 3 screws that were removed.

Install the cover along with the F5 screw to complete this upgrade/repair.

Here is a video tutorial showing step by step directions.
