Problem removing hard drive as not screwed to the tray

HP Recommended

Installed 2 extra hard drives in HP Omen X. Unfortunately didn’t have screws to secure to the tray that holds them and didn’t think it would be a huge problem.  Unfortunately now I want to remove them and can’t get them out 🙁. Any ideas?  Not enough space to grab hold of them and pull and they just seem stuck now.  There is a little play  in them as they move side to side but will not pull out as obviously on the connector at the back.

Thank you for posting your query on HP Community,


In this scenario, I would personally suggest you could consult a local Best Buy or Staples technician or any local tech who can look at it and help you remove the hard drive. 


I hope this information helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help you.


Take care and have a great day!


Cheers 🙂
