    How to install hard drive in Toshiba Satellite A35-S159

    I dont have any experience with laptops, so can anybody tell me how to install hard drive in Toshiba Satellite A35-S159 and also take out the hard drive from this laptop? I think my hard drive is going to die in few days because I can hear some clicking noises from my laptop?

    You can try to remove the screw from the plate which is loacated on the bottom of the laptop and that should expose the hard drive, there should also be a button or leaver that will release the hard drive. Download the manual for your laptop from here and it will give you all the details.

    Yes, you can try to flip the laptop over, find the screws (usually hidden between access plates), unscrew them, and pull off the bottom to expose the HD. If all else fails, go to toshiba.com (or whatever their address is) and look for tech support.

    EINSTEIN_007: You are crazy

    For Toshiba Satellite A35-S159, simply unscrew 1 below the DVD driver, slide the DVD driver out, there's hard drive slot there to take out or replace the new one.

    Would it be easy to do that rather than listen to EINSTEIN_007 for all that craps to take out...hehehe
