How do I kill disconnect battery in 300-15isk so I can replace the hdd?

I need to pop in a new hard drive. That's easy enough to get to, but the battery isn't dead yet and it's almost impossible to disconnect the thing. Do I really have to wait until it dies before I can work on my notebook (meaning I'll never buy another Lenovo again), or is there a much easier way to drain/disconnect the battery than the obvious?

Hi SirACid

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

If you can simply follow the hardware manual for harddrive disassembly step as described here on page 34-35.

After removing the drive compartment cover you can proceed with the steps to remove the hard drive and do not include removing the battery.

 

There is, however, an attention notice:

• Before removing the drive, suggest the customer to backup all the
information on it if possible.
• Never remove the drive while the system is operating or is in suspend
mode.

 

Regards

Thank you! All went well installing the Crucial SSD. The notebook is much faster after that, plus doubling the RAM to 16GB!

 

One thing - the driver for the touchpad is corrupt. I downloaded it three times, twice from Lenovo and once from my desktop PC (transferred it with a flash drive). Each time I tried to install it, a dialog appeared to inform me the source files were corrupt.
