Re: Can't pull out the hard drive from the cage



These drives have screw-in pins on the side that guide the drives into the rails, and there is a plastic lever you have to pull in order to free the pins so the drive will slide out.


Here is the service manual for your PC:


Instructions are on page 6-21.

Good Luck
