Question about Sony PCG-TR3A Notebook

1 Answer

Sony PCG TR3A hard disk is pooched. Can it be fixed with 6oGB?

I can't start the computer and there are horrible noises coming from within, I need to replace the hard disk. I've been told it's not worth it- buy a new one. Can I replace the hard disk with a faster drive? If so, is it worth it? Is it complicated and/or expensive?
Thanks
Annie

All hard drives run at the same speed, if its a sata drive data access is quicker but that is memory relient, you can repace the hard drive but you'd have to shop around for a good deal, i recomend seagate because they have a five year warranty on them, installing them is fairly easy you'll just have to install a brand new operating system as new hard drives come unformatted

I have a Sony Vio NoteBook Computer-Model PCG-992L.


With the Sony, if you do not make a recovery disk set from a functioning laptop, you are out of luck. However, you can load any retail version of an operating system, go to this link
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCGTR3A
to download all of the device drivers, and continue using your laptop.

Good luck

Sony PCG TR3A Green power light on Yellow Battery light On


If it's still under warranty I'd send it to Sony. If not, it may be better to get it fixed locally. It's easier to have a face to face conversation and explain exactly what is going on. From what you've told us, it sounds like the power circuit on the mother board is bad.
Hope things go well for you on this one.

Hi,

When you formatted the hard disk of the laptop, the appropriate drivers were also erased. It is therefore necessary to reinstall the drivers and specifically for your concern, the VGA Display. Pls click here to view available downloads for the Sony PCG-TR3A. You would be particularly interested with the Intel Graphics Controller Driver.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
