HP 15-d037dx TouchSmart Notebook PC hard drive access/replacement


Apr 11, 2013
Hi folks,

Just had a frustrating experience trying to upgrade a HP 15-d037dx TouchSmart Notebook PC to a SSD.

It seems that it's not made to be easily replaceable like most laptops hard drives. Only the RAM and Wireless card are easily accessible on the bottom of the system. Otherwise you have to take out a LOT of screws, and 'pop' plastic. I didn't proceed too far before giving up and start researching online.

Does anyone know of a 'teardown' video for this model or similar?
