    Well, the problem I am having is I am not able to boot from either the USB or the mem stick reader from the laptop. The laptop does not have an optical drive so the only option for me is to take the hard drive out fromt the inside and try to format it thru external enclosure.

    Each boot states:

    NTDLR is missing.



    any idea how can i reinstall Windows?



    Thanks Slick54,

Please help! How to get to the internal hard disk of this computer for a replacement? Model is Sony VGC-LT16e Thanks!


In order to get to hard drive 0 you need to take the whole back panel off the computer. They make it rather easy to add a second drive (drive 1), but to get at drive 0 there are about 20 screws to take out and then the whole back panel will lift off and give you access to the main hard drive.

Hard Disk Crash


If you have replaced HDD of your machine, then there is no otherway to get your things back rather than installing them. If you have CDs from Sony, then you are safe.

Sony Pcv-w 600G hard drive replacement.


Replacing a hard drive is very simple. A hard drive will have two connectors a one for power(small plug usually white with 4 holes ), and an IDE cable that looks like a ribbon. You just have to remove the cables from the old hard drive and plug them into the new one.
An IDE cable looks like this(clcik here)
You see the four holes next to the IDE cable? Thats where the power connector is plugged in. Let me know if you need anything else.
Good luck!
Sai.

My mac g5 is not recognising my WD elements extrenal hard drive, this is the first time I have plugged an extrenal hard drive of this sort into my mac. Thanks


My computer does not recognize the Drive.
A: First, check to make sure that all of your connections are secure. Then check if your External Hard Drive is listed in the Apple System Profiler. If the driver listed is “USB Authoring Support” or “Toast USB Support”, disable this Extension(s) in the Extensions Manager. These Extensions can cause a conflict with the Drive.

What type of hard drive goes in a VGC-RB42G.....SATA or PATA


Hi JG78 - If you bought the stock model of your PC it originally came with a SATA 250GB drive. SATA drives have a faster transfer rate so if your PC can handle it ( and it can ) then you definitely want to get a SATA drive. Make sure you back up any info,documents,pictures,etc on cd's or dvd's. Or when you install the new drive you can just make your old drive a secondary drive and transfer the info you need to save before you remove it. Also be sure you have all software and drivers you need before you install the new drive so you won't have the hassle of having to locate them later. If you need to download them you can put them on a cd so they'll be ready to go. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help or assistance with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to give you a hand. Thanks.
