How to Replace SSD in Latitude Z


The Dell Latitude Z-series laptop is a laptop with a top-of-the-line LCD display. It also comes with a SSD (solid state drive) hard disk drive. These drives use a different cable to connect to the motherboard than a standard hard drive. This allows for data to be transferred to and from the hard drive faster than a standard drive. The good news is that replacing a SSD on your latitude is just as quick as it is on many other laptops.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Turn off your Latitude and unplug the power cable. Close the LCD screen and turn the unit upside down.

  • Unplug the battery pack from its port on the bottom of the computer.

  • Locate the hard drive compartment on the bottom of the computer. On most Z-series Latitudes, this will be the largest of the upgrade compartments on the bottom of the computer.

  • Remove the screw holding the compartment cover in place and remove the compartment cover to expose the SSD drive.

  • Unplug the SSD from its port and slide it out of the compartment.

  • Fit a new SSD drive in the compartment and replace the compartment cover and screw.
