Hdd screws

HP Recommended
HP omen 870-224

I am fairly new to computers hence why I went with a prebuilt for my first pc. I have recently noticed my disk space is always maxed out whenever I run a game so I am trying to replace the old hdd with a new hdd and adding an ssd. The frame is very different then what I see in other PCs the way the frame makes the card sit is at an angle and the screws seem to be located behind a lot of cords. Is there any way to remove these screws without unplugging everything I would like to get the old hdd out of there as I believe there has to be some issue with it. Thank you.

Hello @Daymanvnightman 

 

You shouldn't need to remove any screws according to the manual.

 

You lift the release lever and the drive slides out. Then you remove the guide screws.

Thank you, the way the computer is setup there’s cords all over where the screws are so I’m assuming I just unplug what I need to and get in there was nervous about unplugging random things during this process.

No worries, not a dumb question. 😉

 

Also just so you know...

You dont have to use another HDD again. You can also install a 2.5 inch Sata SSD via an adapter mount.

Example.. https://www.newegg.com/bytecc-bracket-250-1-x-2-5-drive-to-3-5-bay/p/N82E16817994158

 

If the answer helps you, please mark it solved to finalize the thread. Thanks and let me know if you have other issues.
