Replacing HDD Acer Travelmate 244

\015 Can you please advise how to remove the HDD in this model so I can put in a new one? I understand that any 2.5" HDD will be a suitable replacement. Does this include the newer SATA models?\015

Answers :

First, you must remove the battery by pushing the battery release latch and sliding the battery out from the machine.

\015\012The hard drive will be located behind where the battery was, and you should be able to just carefully slide it out. Then you have to remove the hard drive from its holder by removing 2 screws.
