    turn over the unit

    find hard drive on side

    look for two screws holding it on bottom

    usually small phillips is needed for that

    remove screws

    gently pull hd from slot

    keep screws with drive, until you replace it

    Not sure about that particular model but on one i had the HDD sat under the keyboard. You had to remove the keyboard to change the HDD whereas many laptops have their HDD sitting behind a cover accessed from the exterior of the case.

    I think you might have misinterpreted those instructions. They way I read it is that they're telling you the hard drive is on the side with screws on the bottom to hold it in place, and once you undo those screws you can slide the hard drive out from the side of the machine.
