Hello Alexjames,

Depending on which one you have, check these links, different cases require different methods.
Mine for instance would be the last one.

Just remember to have a sata and sata power lead free to hand when its out.

If this is an external hard drive why not just connect it to your PC with the USB cable? If it is internal then I assume it has come from another machine. If that is the case, why did you need to remove it from the other machine?

It's probably not working so he wants to see if it will work in the PC.
sometimes the controller on the enclosure can go bad while the drive inside is fine.
