How to change hard drive on Sony VGN-N130G?


I need the model number printed on the front of your case, VGN-N130G does not exsist on the sony web support page. http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computing/vaio/index.aspx?l=en_GB

Usually there is a cover under your laptop that is marked.
Remove 1 or 2 screws and your harddrive should just slide out.

My Sony Vaio PCG 3C2L will not turn on. It looks


it sounds like a problem with your harddrive. if you have an oem copy of your OS then you could do a chkdsk /r from this. If not then the harddrive will have to be removed and the chkdsk /r done from a data reader from another computer. Hope this helps, leave feedback

I have a Sony PCV-V300G with a bad DVD drive but don't know how to safely remove the rear cover. I removed the 2 1.25" screws at the lower edge or each side but no go. I Don't want to break anything. Any...


after you remove the screws, check every middle side if front, ther must be a hole in the mettle where is attached frome inside a plastick switch that holds it all together, pushe them on by one( opposit ones first), with somthing strong untill the are unleshed frome the metal, then remove the front end...and then its all done....
there might be some small other details u cannot apply this solution on all drives **** its the basic way....

Where is HD on VGN-N250E


It's in the bottom left hand corner, as you view the laptop in it's normal position.

Sony Vaio's are not like other laptops in -> this respect.
With MOST other newer laptop's, you burn to disk your personal documents.
(Anything in your My Documents folder. My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and personal documents you have created)

Then you buy an inexpensive external enclosure, (2.5" for laptops. And Sata for a laptop like yours), insert the new harddrive, and attach the external enclosure to your laptop, via a USB cable.

Then there is a certain key, or keys, you press on the keypad, and a menu comes up for transferring your Operating System, and programs you have installed, onto the new harddrive.

You remove the AC adapter, (Charger) and the battery.
The new harddrive is then inserted in place of the old one. Access to the harddrive, is usually removing a screw or two, then pulling the harddrive out, with part of the laptop body. Reinstall the battery, and plug the AC adapter back in. Away you go.

With the Sony Vaio series, this is not happening.

You have to use an external enclosure, and a 'mirror' imaging program, like Norton Ghost, Acronis True Image, or DriveImage XML, (Free), and mirror image the operating system, and programs to the new harddrive. (Via the external enclosure)

Then the fun(?) begins.
All electrical sources are removed. The laptop is turned over on it's top cover. Six screws are removed around the outside case edge.
One screw is removed towards the Front, and right next to the Memory Compartment Cover.

The laptop is turned back over, and a small flat tip screwdriver is inserted into slots, in front of the keypad. (Jewelers screwdriver)
The keypad is released and tilted back.
A flat ribbon cable is disconnected, from the motherboard that leads to the keypad. The keypad is removed.

Then, a small White flat ribbon cable is disconnected, in front of the keypad area. This ribbon cable connects the Front panel buttons, to the motherboard.

Now, the Top Cover is popped loose from the Bottom Cover. There is a thin parting line where the two halves meet, and a jewelers flat tip screwdriver, is inserted in this parting line towards the back. (Near the LCD screen) The Top Cover is eased up a bit, on one side, then the other side is eased up a bit. Work towards the front.
When getting to the end, (Front), the Top Cover comes off.

Now the harddrive can be seen. There are Two screws towards the Left side, in the corners. These are removed. There is One
screw towards the Right/Front corner. This is removed. The harddrive has a fabric pull 'tab' on the end of it. This is pulled on and the back end of the hardrive is gently lifted up, as it's pulled back. (Left side of harddrive is the back end)

-> Extreme caution is taken here, as there are tiny metal pins on the front off the harddrive, that can easily be bent!

There is a metal thin frame that goes around the harddrive. This is removed, by removing Two screws on each side. The metal frame goes on the new harddrive.

Install the Driver manually, the automatic installation of the driver is not installing the drivers properly, that is why when you restart the system it is not able to identify the device. for this uninstall the driver restart your system then install the driver manually.
