The battery ran out on my sony vaio VGN-S4P/B when downloading from a portable hard drive now the laptop only shows a flashing cursor. Do I need to use the system recovery disk? If I do how can I save some of the data stored on the computer?

I would try to boot into safe mode first by pressing F8 during boot repeatedly to save as much data as possible, if the pc will not boot into safe mode another option is to simply to send the hard drive off to a lab that can pull any good infomation left on it off. Although I have been told that this can cost up to 500 dollars. And lastly if the information wasn't worth whatever high price it is in your home town, just do the system restore if you don't have a disk you can reach it by pressing F10 repeatedly at start up ... Hope this helps

Hi, own a Sony Vaio VGN P530H with hardisk Toshiba MK6028GAL damaged. as forced to replace unit, wonder could install a higher capacity? Brand & model if available please!!! thanks to all of you!!!


The VAIO VGN-T350 is a notebook computer designed and distributed by Sony.
The hard drive on your Sony VAIO VGN-T350, which is the unit that stores data, consists of many clusters of data that can be rewritten with new data.
If you are looking for a memory capacity upgrade, or if your old hard drive is having errors, it's time for an upgrade.
Upgrading the hard drive on your Sony VAIO will require the use of a screwdriver and will take you about 30 minutes to complete.

Turn off your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and remove the power cord and any other peripheral components.
Turn over your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and locate the hard drive chamber on the bottom of your laptop. It will be clearly labeled.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the lid in place.
Gently lift the hard drive and its cage away from your laptop and disconnect the data cord.
Remove the four screws located at the corners, and then remove your old hard drive from its cage.
Place your new internal laptop hard drive into the cage and replace the screws.
Connect the data cord to your new hard drive and place your new hard drive into its chamber.
Close the lid and replace the screw to complete the operation.

I've got the blue screen of death stating "unmountable_boot_volume" for my Sony VAIO VGN-NR110E. the technical information says "STOP: 0x000000ED (0x84FE9248, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000,...


That error appears when the corruption of the hard disk is so great that even the file system and its partitions (including the recovery one) are gone.
You must order a recovery cd directly from Sony, there's no other way.

Sony VAIO VGN-FJ3M/W does not boot.


Possible hard disk failure or hard disk controller failure.
if you feel confident remove the hard disk and replace - obviosuly make sure that there is not power running and remove the battery - replace hard disk then battery then power and try again.

Do you get any beeps? is the hard disk clicking? listen carefully to it and post your findings.
