Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook
Can anybody tell me how to remove my hard drive from this laptop??? Mine crashed so i'm trying to replace it. I need to get this fixed A.S.A.P!! Thanks A Million!! Rob
This is a complicated process and I advise you to be very cautious and carefully organize all screws and cables that you unplug in a clean and undisturbed area. Pay keen attention as to where cables are unplugged from so you can plug them in when hard drive is inserted. I must say proceed at your own risk because it might get frustrating if you are not careful and organized. First, turn over the laptop and loose all 7 screws on the perimeter of the laptop. Loose one screw in the middle and 2 on both sides of the battery (total 10 screws). Remove the battery, there are two clips there holding the keyboard. Release those and remove the keyboard and unplug main keyboard data cable from motherboard. Unplug the power switch cable, and the touchpad cable from m/board. Unscrew 3 screws from under the keyboard to remove the top cover of laptop. When that is removed you will see the hard drive in the bottom right. There are 3 screws holding the hdd to the system and 4 holding the enclosure that needs to be removed. Unplug the sata cable and use it for new sata hard drive. I hope you have had the patience to do this as this is a job for a technician. If you have succeeded, congratulations.

I have just replaced my old 80 GB hard drive for a new 250 Gb, I followed the instructions by Lolita, so if you are willing to upgrade your laptop this is the right place to look for info. Thanks Lolita, and thanks FixYa.
