How do you remove ribbon cables?
Just so everyone knows: I HATE friggin' ribbon cables. Currently, I am working on a friend's computer, trying to get the hard drive upgraded from 40 GB to 120 GB. The power cable came out without any problems, but the bloody ribbon cables refuse to budge. I've tried everything: pulling, looking for a release mechanism, using tweezers, but to no avail.
This is a PC, but hard drives are really standardized components. They should be the same in a PC or a Macintosh. If anyone knows how to safely remove these hellish things, please let me know.
