    What a s**tty design by dell. This is what happens when you under pay your
    engineers. I work in IT and everytime I get one in, I tell the customer its
    time for a new laptop.

    Wow, that is a horrible design. I was thinking of getting a Samsung 840
    since my laptop has been running slow, but after watching this I think I’d
    rather just save up for a new laptop :/

    Thank You!! My first laptop repair. I was a little scared to take it all
    apart but these instructions were detailed and perfect to the last screw.
    It took me 1 hour and 15 minutes. Works perfectly…Thanks Again!

    The green tool he used at around 1:55 to remove the plastic cover from rest
    of the computer, what is that called?

    With this, even a child who has just learnt how to read, can safely remove
    the hard drive and place it back. Tyvm bro :)

    Does it make me a bad IT guy if I take my laptop to Best Buy to have the
    hard drive replaced? I could do it, but it seems like a lot of work to when
    I’m not getting paid to do it:

    the 4 lock, but key pad can’t remove why it is so?

    cheers man, great tutorial. It’s as if dell didn’t want us to replace the
    hard drive ourselves “troll face” 🙂
