It is hard to open laptop computer

When I open the cover on my Sony laptop it is very hard to open the first couple of inches. I wonder if a little oil will help but am not sure that oil or WD-40 would damage something.

If it is new, it will get easier. I would not recommend using oil of any kind on it as the hinges or screws could become loose.

How to remove hard drive from sony vaio pcg-2c1l


As you install new programs, rip music files from CDs or download data from the Internet, the hard drive on your Sony Vaio PCG laptop will eventually fill up and run out of room. You can replace the hard drive with a new one that has a larger capacity.

Power off the Sony Vaio PCG laptop, disconnect the power cord and then close the lid. Flip the computer over so that the bottom is facing up toward you. Press down on the raised latch that holds the battery into place and then pull the battery out of the laptop. Locate the five screws arranged in a square pattern on the right side of the laptop case. Take a screwdriver and remove all of the screws. Slide your fingernail or the tip of the screwdriver underneath the seam of the square plastic cover and lift it up. Grab the cover and remove it. Pull out the two screws that hold the hard drive onto the motherboard. Grab both ends of the hard drive and carefully pull it directly upward for about an inch so that you can see the cable connected to the motherboard. Disconnect the cable and then pull the hard drive the rest of the way out. Take out the four mounting screws that are located on both side edges of the hard drive. Take the replacement hard drive and install the mounting screws into its left and right sides. Plug the cable that runs from the motherboard into the corresponding port on the replacement hard drive. Check the direction of the new hard drive and lay it into the open slot in the same direction as the old hard drive. Use the two screws you pulled out earlier to hold it in place. Slide the cover piece back on and replace the five screws. Push the battery back into the laptop until the latch snaps into place. Hope this helps.

Sony vaio vgn series laptop - when xp os loading blue screen appears and display the msg hard disk drive not detected.


system not found in my experience generally leads to a damaged or loose hard drive, try to open the cover at the bottom side of the machine, and reseat the hard drive, if it still says system not found, get a 2.5 inch drive case, put your laptop drive in the case and connect it to another machine, if you can access the drive great! save all your files and once complete return the drive to your machine and try to reinstall the OS from a dvd then reinstall your files.. and if still having the same problem replace hard drive thanks.

I need a Emachines D620 SERVICE MANUAL! I'm needint to replace the hard drive in my friends laptop! READ THIS!!! I AM NOT GOING TO PAY 0.01 FOR SOMETHING I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOWN LOAD FOR FREE!


One DOESN'T need a service manual to replace a hard drive!

You just need to open the case where the drive is. Usually a few screws that are obvious on a cover on the bottom of the units for most laptops. Some have only a couple screws then a carrier slides out.

There is usually a carrier that may require a couple more screws to remove and then up to four screws holding the drive to the carrier.

There often is an adapter plugged onto the drive which you have to transfer to the new drive in some cases.

Just go slow an keep the screws in little divided tray to make sure you put the right length back for each location.

Replacement of hard disk in Vaio VGN-A150


Well, it's not good news. Official word from Sony:

Knowledge Article C309925...

Can the notebook hard drive be upgraded or replaced

Hard drive upgrades in the notebook computer are not supported.

NOTES:

* Some notebook computer have instructions for warranty replacement of the hard drive by an end user.
* Although third-party upgrades may be available for some models, they are not supported.
* If the hard drive needs service, repair should be done by an authorized Sony service center.
* External hard drives may be attached if the appropriate connections are available.
....

This basically means complete disassembly of the laptop is required to get at the hard drive. Not that it can't be done. Just that it'll be a major pain in the .... you know.

There is no hidden key!

Can't figure out how to remove hard drive Sony PCG-F540


The hard drive is under the keyword, in the middle of the laptop. Screw the left side of cover (power button) under the screen, pull it and later remove the keyword.

all machines are slightly different for accessing the components, but if you flip over the laptop look for some screws on the bottom that hold an access plate. the hard drive is about three by four inches.
