How to remove the hard disk of Toshiba T135D

Toshiba Satellite T135D
There are two square covers on the back of the Toshiba T135D. One of them is for the memory and the other is for the hard drive. Removing the memory is relatively easy. All you need to do is remove the two philips screws and you are all set. You can then upgrade the memory if needed.

Removing the screws of the hard drive cover it tricky. It comes with torx screw and it is painful to remove since most of us do not have the right tool. Do not attempt to open it with other type of screw drivers as it may damage the threads that form it.

Get the right tool to open it. Once you remove the two screws, the removal of the hard disk should be easy.

Notice that Toshiba T135D does not come with a DVD drive. So it the hard disk creates issue, you will not be able to boot the system from the DVD Drive. Also we do not find any support for booting the system from a USB drive in the BIOS. There is LAN boot option, but I think it is difficult for a common user to know how to boot from the Ethernet.

    You should get a Chinese made tool box that has a large number of different screw drivers. COmes for something like $5 but is of great help for torx, plus and minus.

    You will need a external dvd drive or make a usb stick bootable.
    No problem at all 😉
