    • Remove the six 5.5 mm screws from the metal plate beneath the keyboard.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, carefully detach the five plastic clips securing the upper case.

    • There are two small LEDs in the top edge of the lower casing, near the bottom right of the laptop. Be careful not to damage them as you pry open the plastic clips.

What's the biggest hard drive that will work on this netbook?

If I remember correctly, from the manufacturer, 500 GB should work. I had a WD 320 GB in it.

Great tutorial, thanks, I wouldn't have managed to change the drive without it, I couldn't figure out how to remove the keyboard, those latches are tricky...

On the 1005HAB there is a piece of double sided tape under the backspace key on the keyboard. Other than that this guide works on the 1005HAB.
