Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. A good place to start is at the manufacturer's web site. I believe it is in the manual, which they have available for download. Go to http://support.dell....60/en/index.htm

Ok easy enough unplug system and pull out your battery flip system upside down with the front towards you, bottom right hand corner you should see a small rectangular door, to the left there will be a screw generally marked "O" take that out, now above that screw there should be a door with a screw marked "M" take that off now in that space at the bottom below both memory modules there will be a slide latch, slide to right and drive should pop out pull out slide new drive in and revers steps to install.

Cheers, Hope thats clear enough
