    The Hard drive on your A30 is located underneath the optical drive. To remove it you need to undo screw F5 on the bottom of your notebook and then slide the optical drive forwards out of its location. You will then be able to see the hard drive attached with four cross-head screws (2 on each side). Undo the four screws and then gently slide the hard drive towards the front of the notebook to disengage it from the connector.

    @Codex - thats where I got it from.

    Also the F5 Screw should be under the CD/DVD drive.

    I know; you beat me to the reply, and I didn't see it (didn't check the thread again). ;)
