How to Remove a PC Hard Drive

How to remove a hard drive from your computer case. This is a very simple procedure to remove a hard disk drive from a standard computer case. It only requires a single tool: a Phillips head screwdriver.

First, pull the power cable from the back of the computer where it plugs into the power supply. Press the power button a couple of times to discharge any residual power in the computer.

Next, remove the cover (the case). Normally there are two separate pieces, one on each side of the case. There are typically two screws on each side. Once the screws are removed, carefully pull each side off of the computer.

Next, locate the hard drive inside of the computer and pull the power cable and the data cable from the disk drive. Pull them straight back, away from the disk. It may require a little effort to make them turn loose.

Now remove the screws that connect the drive to the case. There are usually two on each side of the drive so you will need to do this on both sides of the computer.
