Solved!

how do i remove the protectsmart cover to change a damaged hard drive in an HP Pavilion dv5-2132dx?

HP Recommended

I have an HP Pavilion dv5-2132dx laptop. The hard drive has completely failed and needs to be replaced but I can't figure out how to access the hard drive. There are no screws on the panel and it says HP Protectsmart on the back. I need a video on how to do it.
