Answers :

You Do have to take the machine apart I have the same computer and there are about 15 or so screws on bottem and be gentle when taking apart the hard drive will be in the inside to the left you have to unscrew a little sound bourd at verry end of hard drive to be able to slide it out and on the other end there are two more screws holding it in as well Good luck.
You have to remove the base part of the laptop by removing all the screws including the little ones under the cd when the dvdrw is removed. and the ones under battery and there is one under the ram cover then the base comes off easily. just then remove the caddy locking screws one at the front and one and back
