    Default How to remove hard drive on T500 2055-3AG Thinkpad?

    Well that kinda sums it up.

    I intend to connect my hard drive to another computer by means of a SATA cabinet with USB connection to scan for some malware which has infected the computer. However, upon flipping over my laptop, I can't seem to make out what to do to extricate the hard drive, as the backside is confusing as hell.

    No manual came with the laptop, so I have no way of checking one such out for advice.

    I believe the hard drive screw is in the front right (front left when turned over). You have to remove one screw basically. I would search Lenovo's support site for the T500/W500 manual, it shows instructions for removing the hard drive.

    Go to the Lenovo listing of Hardware Maintenence Manuals, and you'll have all the information you'll ever need about the T500.

    Hard drive replacement is very very simple. Just remove the single screw below the right palm rest, at the very edge. The piece of plastic comes off, and slide the hard drive out.

    You might also find it interesting to watch service videos of the procedure. Although the below link is for the T61, it is very very similar for the T500 as well.

    After opening the page, select CRU removals/replacement and then Hard Disk Drives
