Changing HDD on a notebook

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Martin Racette, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I'm having a problem changing the HDD on a Toshiba Satellite 1110, but I can not
    get the back cover off, and when I checked with Toshiba on how to do it, they
    tell me that I should have a HDD access panel, but the only panel that I have is
    one for the memory, and the other is for the battery

    I removed all the screws from the the back cover, but something is holding the
    cover about the middle of the notebook

    Can any one tell me how to do this ?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you in Advance

    Merci a l'Avance

    Often removing the keyboard will give access to the HDD. Depends on the
    machine though. I'm not familiar with yours.

    But, if you enter: Toshiba Satellite 1110 HDD removal

    into Google the first link:


    "Tech Talk on Laptops" tells you:

    "Toshiba Satellite 1110 (1100 series): Fairly solid aging laptop. Difficult
    access to HDD - requires removal of entire LCD and top cover. Prone to
    cracking at the LCD hinges - be gentle."

    Sounds like you're in for an ordeal. Good luck.
