  4. Heres another way you can do this:

    Step #1 Turn the computer off.
    Step #2 Pull out any attached wires (quick tip: be very gentle, they tend to snap after applying few tons of pressure).

    Step #4 GENTLY smash your computer until the Hard Drive pops out (quick tip: if it doesn't, buy a new computer and repeat the last 4 steps).
    Step #5 Pick up and throw the old Hard Drive at neighbors window.
    Step #6 Place the new Hard Drive at the old ones location.
    Step #7 Enjoy!

  5. Well… that WOULD work if I were able to remove the OTHER SIDE of my computer case which irronically, Isn't fixed in place with SCREWS I CAN REMOVE WITH ''ANY'' EASY ABLE TO FIND SCREWDRIVER. Anybody know where I could find a… ROUND SCREWDRIVER? Yeah… ROUND! How can you even get a grip with a ROUND END screwdriver?

  6. @xo46oup I didn't know about it until now, but… yes. I think that might be what I'm looking for, but isn't it meant to permanentely pop the rivet into the metal plates? So… how can I remove them if they're meant to be permanentely fixed? Does the pop rivet have a reverse function? I don't know about you, but other computers I've seen, don't have rivets holding the metal case of the machine, they have screws. Maybe, because rivets CAN'T be removed. I don't actually know, but it could be why.
