removing hard drive

Threaded View
I have an old, very dead HP Pavilion N5270 laptop. It was actually a
very good unit, but the screen died after a year and the OS was that
rotten, filthy piece of s**t Windows ME.

I haven't turned the thing on in about 3-4 years, and it's very dead
as far as I'm concerned.

I want to remove the hard drive and place it in a USB external hard
drive shell to see if I can read it up my current computer.

How do I find and remove the hard drive on the computer? Obviously I
don't care if I damage the laptop, and there's no longer any warranty
to void. I'd just like to remove the hard drive, wipe it and thereby
have another 30G hard drive to use.

Can anyone point me to a website that has diagrams? Or give detailed
directions on removing the hard drive?
