You can see the SSD at the bottom left (right to the HHD empty slot). Here's my problem: there's this black plate covering the SSD. In all of the videos I've looked up about my laptop, none of them have this black thing over the SSD. Undoing the screws doesn't let me remove it. The plate seems struck with a white substance some king of heat paste I think. I'm at a loss as to how to actually remove the plate and upgrade my SSD. Any clue ?
