Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

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.

Are there CPU fan settings in the bios of a Sony Vaio laptop model #PCG-3E2L? I know newer laptops do. I have replaced the broken fan, but new fan attempts to spin up on boot, but stops immediately....


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

How do you install a new Hard Drive


DESKTOP COMPUTER: If you want to add another hard drive besides your already existing hard drive:1) Open the left side cover of a desktop computer with a screwdriver. 2) Locate two spare red cables ends (one for data transfer, another for elictricity) and plug them to your new hard drive (you can't do anything wrong, as the plug shape for each type is unique). Remark: If you don't have any spare ends of such cables inside your computer, buy SATA data cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/5-SATA-SERIAL-ATA-HD-DATA-HDD-SIGNAL-CABLE-RIGHT-ANGLE-/390263214964?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5add801374#ht_1746wt_972 and 1 SATA power cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/4-pin-IDE-Molex-2-SATA-Power-Cable-Splitter-Adapter-/270716115788?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f07f01b4c#ht_3549wt_754. 3) Place the hard disk next to your already existing one and attach with screws so it won't move.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbb9xrR49d8
LAPTOP COMPUTER: If you want to install a new hard disk for laptop, you normally can't have 2 hard drives - you can replace the old one (turn your laptop bottom-up, open screws at the bottom of it, open one of the smaller covers and locate your old hard drive in one of them) and reinstall the whole operation system (e.g. Windows XP) from your installation CD.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTCu331Rsac
EXTERNAL DRIVE: Or alternatively you can use it as an external hard drive (which is slower than the inner, though, because it connects to the computer through slower USB ports) - buy an external hard disk drive case:
In any case installing a hard drive is much easier than it seems, you virtually can't make a big mistake.

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.

Did you get printer issue resloved?


Hello, well, several users have been kind enough to offer advice regarding this problem. The only thing that really seems to work at all is slamming the cover with a bit of force. Of course, please don't use to much force here. It seems that closing the cover is supposed to trigger a mechanism that will let the printer know. Apparently this mechanism is defective on the HP photosmart. So you just need to make your point with a bit of force when closing that cover. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to work.

Hope that helps!

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.

Replacing Hard Disk Drive


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.
