Removal of hard-drive caddy on insp.8500

  1. Heya,

    I'm sitting here and have unscrewed all the screws that holds the hard-drive caddy in place. But still it wont go off.

    Anyone have any ideas that may help me to get this hard-drive caddy of the mainboard?

    Im onto short circuiting the chip beneath the caddy!!


    Help would be appreciated :)

    One screw, and caddy straight out

    But if the caddy (or Inspiron casing) has warped, due to heat
    Then you could wiggle it a litttle, left and right, up and down; until it frees itself.

    wiggle refers to the harddrive motion, not yours !
