Fujitsu Amilo D7830 hard drive removal

  jasper01 17:11 01 Aug 2007

I have a Fujitsu Amilo D 7830 laptop which does not pick up the hard drive in the bios. during bootup I get the message "PXE-E81: mEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE". From this I have assumed the hard drive is damaged or loose.
I have located the hard drive inside and removed the battery and heatsink fan. The hard drive seems to be located in a caddy, and I cannot work out how to get the hard drive and caddy out. I don't want to force anything is there anybody out there that can give me some guidance. Your help would be much appreciated.

Worked it out, the hard drive had been glued in and therefore needed more force than usual. Remove the screw from the support post and pull the plastic tab towards the edge. the hard drive and caddy pop out.
