HP ProBook 4520s - How do I get the hard drive out?

Client laptop, must get files off hard drive.
Laptop is basically dead it seems, it start with only the HP logo then black screens.
My question, how do I get at the hard drive inside?
I do see that there is a key kinda slot on the side. But I don't have a key for the laptop, I have a feeling that it would just lock it anyway.

If I could get a prompt response that would be much appreciated. As time is money.

Hi, Andrew:

Here is the link to the service manual for this notebook:

Refer to Chapter 4, page 78 for the procedure on how to remove the hard drive.
