@Jasen734 , welcome back to the forum.

 

What is the full model or product number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information.  Also, where did you install the drive?  It would help if you could provide a picture of the installation.

Thank you for the additional information, @Jasen734!

 

How is the drive installed -- using a cage or simply with screws?

You say that the drive is stuck.  Have you removed the screws that is holding it into place.
