Hard Drive Upgrade

HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n092
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

A friend of mine gave me this laptop.  I want to swap the hard drive out as when I boot up it says "Imenant Failure".  I am pretty efficient on swapping drives but apparently the drive on this laptop is under the keyboard.  Can anyone tell me if they feel it's worth doing?  I have taken the screws out but can't pop the top off.

 

Thanks

@sparker781

 

Since the drive is failing, if you do NOT replace it, that would render the PC useless.  So, only YOU can determine if all the work needed to replace the drive is worth it.

 

Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for your PC:  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04439615

 

The Hard Driver removal instructions start on page 67.

Good Luck

Totally not worth it.  I just got the top cover off.  I am tossing this thing in the trash
