I have a 2005 Toshiba Satellite Laptop and wanted to replace the Hard Drive with an SSD. I removed all the screws and tried taking off the back tray, but it wouldn't come off and I didn't want to break anything. It looked like the heat pipe was connected to the laptop. How can I replace the HDD?

Have you found and read the Service Manual for this?
That should outline the steps to replace the drive. (and blow the dust out)

So, i realized how stupid I am. The back of the laptop has individual parts to take off, it doesn't come off at once. There's a bay for the RAM, HDD, etc.
