Need help removing hard drive from desktop

HP Recommended
pavillon 15340

Hard drive conked out and needs to be replaced. Opened the computer removed the wires and need to now remove the cage around the hard drive, but the two screws keeping it attached are not where it is easy to get to. Looked online, but the configuration of this computer is different than what I can find. The screws are at the bottom of the cage facing the motherboard and I can not get the angle on it with a screw driver because even the smallest screw driver bumps into the motherboard. Can't find any other screws that might release it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The model # was above my question. Anyway, I have figure:d it out. I was trying to pull the cage up instead of slide it to the left. The screws I was trying to get at were from the drive inside the cage.  Now I have to put everything back with the new SSD drive. Thanks

Hello

So much the better !

 

But if I asked you, it is because with what you indicated precisely, impossible to find the model of the computer!
