Re: 17m-ae011dx panel removal to replace hard drive.

Did you ever receive an answer that actually addressed how to remove the back of the 

Hp 17m ae011dx? My battery is dead and I am trying to take back off but it is stuck near the hinge section. Anybody that can help, I would be most appreciative.

You have to

 

1. Insert a paper clip to release the optical drive, slide the optical drive out, and then remove the screw.
2. Remove the rubber strip
3. Remove 3 screws under the rubber strip
4. Remove 4 screws
5. Lift the base enclosure, and then remove it

 

More information  is on page 28 of the following manual
