Some time ago, I bought a refurbed laptop hard drive off EBAY. Now that the laptop is giving me problems in completing Windows access, I thought I'd install this second hard drive as a test. It is blank so I can add XP to it to see if the boot process completes. However the hard drive has an adapter on it that won't work with the Dell. I have the correct adapter but am not sure how to remove the old one. I don't want to break anything. Tugging lightly on the current connector/adapter doesn't work. Do I need to remove the torx screws closest to the connector (two on each side)?
