I am trying to replace the standard mechanical hard drive in my Toshiba Satellite C55 C5241 with a SSD. This is the laptop:
This is the SSD I am trying to put in the laptop:
This is a picture of the hard drive in the laptop after removing the bottom plate:
I stopped right here, since I am unsure of how to remove this hard drive. I don't want to fiddle around with it and potentially screw something up. I can't seem to find a manual for this particular model instructing how to replace the hard drive or a video with a laptop of a similar design. The only manual I could find was a 170+ page one which provided no instructions on removing the hard drive from the laptop.
This is a picture of the laptop with the bottom plate removed if it helps at all:
Anyone have a clue on how to remove this or has had experience with this particular model or laptops with a similar design as to the hard drive mounting? It seems that I have to do something with those rubber latches, but I don't want to mess with it just to consequently render installing the hard drive in the motherboard impossible. Thanks for any help that can be provided.
