Thanks. I've decided to be extremely careful with this. Considering how poor the HP directions are I don't trust that there won't be some odd thing that happens when I lift the case. This might be the nail in the coffin for me. Until recently we have always bought HP. My newest one is a Dell. HP is likely off my future "to buy" list.

When observing a colleague doing a project like this, always quietly insert a few extra similar screws into the parts cup. Then sit back and listen to the expletives when they think they're done reassembling.

Why not just get an external hard drive? Save yourself some time and money. Opening up a new laptop would probably void the warranty.
