Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/17

Review Dell Inspiron 17R-5737 Notebook – NotebookCheck.net Reviews.

Steps (see also the pictures below):

– remove the battery
– remove the wide bottom plate
– remove the three screws of the hard drive (there are 4 holes, but only 3 screws, saves half a cent per laptop)
– pull the tab gets the metal bracket with the hard drive out of the laptop.

Now you can unscrew the hard drive from the bracket, and replace it with a new one or an SSD drive.
