CRD CORD: ugh thank you so much for this! I had absolutely no idea how to get it out because of the screws on the side<-<

Keith Johnson: This was tremendously helpful, thank you!

shanice rouswell: Thank you for this I was struggling for nearly an hour !

Richard Pope: You're awesome dude. I did it all without taking out the fan but thank you for the tips!

xjlonelystar: Thx

doommega: i was goin thru the same exact thing kid! thank you for the incredible info!

jimmiegoforthewin: Thanks, I tried shakin' and pullin' the cage', pushing that tab and slidin' does it so easy its silly.

Roland Portillo: Thanks for taking the time to post this... it's so easy when you know how!! You saved me a lot of effort.

Manjit Gill: Yo to be honest, same crap happened to me lmfao, I was getting so pissed off cuz I couldn't pull out the hard drive, now when I watched the video, I was like "Wow...I thought that stupid metal thing was just useless..." Guess not >_> 

TR3NT1111: Nice vid man

Menace2GamerZ: same dam thing happend to me -_- i was messing with the lever but i still counldnt get it out until i saw this video -_-

Tracy Langdon Quintrell: Great video, but DO NOT REMOVE THE FAN! You can get the HD out without it. I removed it and had to find out the hard way that it bent a lot of the gold pins and kept the computer from working. Otherwise, great video :)

Alex Peralta: Thank you! I was stuck on the tab to remove the HDD for the longest. I was just like you, pulling and fighting it trying to make it come out. 

tdowns: That's just what I came here to find. Thank you.

J. Richard Kirkham B.Sc.: Mahalo bradah. You sound like local guy. You in Hawaii?

Che Xin: great help!!!

nerhe07: Thanks a lot for the tip! I came close to using a hammer to get that hard drive bay out.

Lee Wexler: DUDE YOU ARE THE MAN. THANK YOU

Osita Okonkwo: Fantastic! Just helped me a LOT!

heather gardiner: Awesome video... Thank you so much!

Shane Augustine: Very Helpful!! I was just going through this with a HP Pavilion a6622f. Thanks a million!! Saved me the time and headache!!

big423: his guy is is freak up 

David Piers: You're a star. Spent a bit of time bending, pulling and twisting to no avail. Many thanks :-)

Климов Дмитрий: You must be a damn genious, man! I've spent like 10 minutes on trying to figure this out on my own, and another 20 minutes on googling and searching on the stupid HP web-site! Thank you man, you really saved me an evening! :) Hello from Russia :)

Savraj Atwal: Do not remove the fan unless you really need to, You will have to replace the thermal paste if you do. Also if you have an AMD CPU take care they have pins at the bottom that can ruin. Take care, a great video.

Aaron B: Thanks, Man! Totally fixed my problem!

Sara Stanford: Thank you so much! I needed to get my old hard drives out before sending my old computer for recycling, was driving me crazy!!

Sean O'Brien: When you showed the little lever, i had a massive OOOOOOHHHHhh! moment. Thank you very much.

Christopher Crawford: Well done MrKT3001...you were able to explain exactly how to remove the hard drive cage! Saved me a lot of frustration and BS. Have a drink on me!

Daisy Valencia: No need to remove the fan. Just the 2 screws and push down on the lever.

Michael Lowe: Ok. i have an hp m9500f basically very similar to yours. But. there is a slot/ space ontop of (the master hard drive) where another drive can be added. this presents the problem of not enough space for my hand and the tool to remove the fastenings. any help you could offer?

Mark Frisch: Thanks for this video. I almost took it to Best Buy because I could not get the hard drive bay out. I even pushed on the tab and pulled up not knowing you have to slide it forward and then pull up. Thanks again you saved me probably $100.00 dollars.

Floating High: Thanks for the help, sometimes the internet can be a magical place.

Hussen K: thank you very much ! that sh***t took me forever to figure out.

TheModa Foka: This guy saved my life. This crap is why HP is going down. What's wrong with the standard case design in which you just remove the 4 screws and slide the HD. They just freaked up with this piece of crap.

Jackal4277: Thank you so much. I was pulling the hell outta that that thing.

M. Malcomb: Thanks Man I was trying to pull up also instead of push forward. I was going to throw the whole thing out the wndow.

Joe Sidwell: Thanks! I was about to get midevil on the thing. It's just like HP to make a simple thing like changing a hard drive a complete mystery unless you happen to know the secret of the tab.

Ethan Judkins: Thanks man

Kitler: Thanks mate I have three spare desktop HDDs one SATA and two IDE .

Dinozzo: god dammit :P been trying to figure out how to get it out for ages :P tyy :P

MrKT3001: what year is it

CheezyPr0ductionz: Dang you saved me a lot of time Bob. Thanks

Ramy Warda: Help! I recently replaced the HDD in my HP Pavilion Elite and now it won't turn on at all. There is a green light on the PSU indicating that it's receiving power, but pressing the power button does nothing. No fans turn on, nothing onscreen.... I tried disconnecting everything inside and connecting it back. Still, no luck.... how does this happen from replacing an HDD?!?
