If it's still under warranty I'd send it to Sony. If not, it may be better to get it fixed locally. It's easier to have a face to face conversation and explain exactly what is going on. From what you've told us, it sounds like the power circuit on the mother board is bad.
Hope things go well for you on this one.

Sony Vaio will not power on with hard drive connected


I'd say it's time to do a close inspection of the hard drive connector/adapter, especially if it has any components mounted on it. If you can't see a problem you can fix like a short between two terminals, and you can't get another one, get an external USB drive (preferably the largest flash memory stick you can obtain) and set it up as a Linux bootable volume and use that to run your computer. You will probably have to set the BIOS to boot from a USB volume first.

PCG-TR3A PROBLEM! NEED HELP NOW!


I would not take any chances. You might damage it or erase something important. Bring it to a computer center to have them professionally troubleshoot it. They can tell you the cause and how to prevent this from happening again. It may just be a simple fix. It may be worth it to have a piece of mind. Try BestBuy. Good luck!

1. Has anyone installed 2Gb RAM memory in a Sony PCG-TR3A? please give details of memory specification. 2. Has anyone installed a HDD bigger than 40GB? please give me details of HDD specification.


Hi,
You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.


Regards.

Sony PCG TR3A hard disk is pooched. Can it be fixed with 6oGB?


all hard drives run at the same speed, if its a sata drive data access is quicker but that is memory relient, you can repace the hard drive but you'd have to shop around for a good deal, i recomend seagate because they have a five year warranty on them, installing them is fairly easy you'll just have to install a brand new operating system as new hard drives come unformatted
