These steps will help you in the replacement of the HP TouchSmart 15-r015dx Hard Drive. A hard drive is the hardware component that stores all of your digital content.

Failure of the hard drive could result in not being able to access your computer (i.e. computer boots up but you cannot do anything on the screen) or an invalid memory access message.

Before beginning, try and back up your hard drive if possible. Failure to back up the computer could result in loss of files.

Two things to add:

1. The two screws hidden under the DVD drive on the edge of the case must be removed.

2. It's easier to unlatch the ribbons for the keyboard, trackpad, and power button than it is to try and work around them. There are holes in the laptop base right over the ribbon connectors, so it's easy to re-connect them.
