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.

Retriving Data from Storejet and uploading to new computor


If the hard drive in the IBM laptop is OK then remove the hard drive from this laptop. Connect this hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then connect the USB adapter with the hard drive into the USB port on the Vaio laptop. The Vaio laptop should see it as an external storage device (if the hard drive is OK). You can then open the various folders and files then copy these to the Vaio laptop

Hi, my Sony Vaio starts with message about upcoming hard drive crash. The HD is however Toshiba's, MK8025GAS-(PM). Is that possible? My laptop is 4 years old. Thanks


vita_london

It is possible that the hard drive is not Sony brand hard drive as they do not manufacture there own hard drives. As for the message that you are getting it is because the hard drive is failing over to many sectors. With the drive being 4 years old this would be just the drive wearing out. So I would recommend you back up your data ASAP and replace the hard drive. You should be able to replaces it with the same type of drive. You just need to know if you need a PATA or SATA drive. The link below will help you figure that out.

VGN-Tx750p does not start up


The Operating System may have got corrupted. In this case, you may reinstall Windows using the VAIO Recovery Wizard, provided you've not changed the factory installed Windows Operating System.

The VAIO Computer is shipped with the VAIO Recovery Wizard housed in a 5 GB of hidden partition on the pre-installed Hard Drive.

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F10 key until the VAIO logo appears to access the VAIO Recovery Wizard.

Follow the steps given in the link below to use the VAIO Recovery Wizard to reinstall Windows, Drivers and all the pre-installed applications.
