I just bought a new desktop, and need to take my old one in to Best Buy for recycling, and I know they charge to remove the hard drive.
I've opened up the case and took out 2 screws holding the hard drive in the cage, and unplugged the cables...but I can't get to the two screws on the opposite side, which seem to be holding the drive in place.
Any advice to get to the elusive side? I've looked all over the web for the last 5 hours, with no success.
Thanks in advance, for any tips or advice!

I need to remove the hard drive from an HP Pavilion a1514n and the link for that video no longer works due to the fact that when HP stops supporting a product they really really stop.
All official documentation, tutorials, downloads, manuals, articles, anything to do with this series of desktops has been removed from the HP Support website.
If you remember anything from 5 years ago, that would be a big help.
