I have a Toshiba Satellite that doesn't have an exposed or removable tray for the stock HDD. The Stock 5400 HDD is absolutely anemic. Everything other than the RAM seems to be 100% internalized.

Does anyone know how to remove the back fascia or has a similar DIY for getting the back off of one of these notebooks? If I can just get my hands on the drive I can swap it for a SSD!

Thanks!

This might help, it seems to cover over your model. I'm have trouble though finding any upgrades. I wish you could give me like is it a 400, 500, 600 etc series then it'd be a whole lot easier for both you and I.

Well, this is a newer Toshiba model and it doesn't seem to follow the same model number scheme. What you posted up there I could easily identify which panels held the hard drive, ram, etc.

Here's the model in question:

You can see it doesn't have bottom panels for accessing anything other than the RAM modules!

I apologize, I have the A5116, NOT the A5115 (which I don't think exists)


This is a different model, but the underside looks exactly like mine:
