All you need to look for is a 2.5 inch SATA drive, such as any of the ones on http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010150380%201035915133%201035507777&name=5400%20RPM

Need hard drive for Sony Vaio VGN-FS742/W


If it's an IDE? Newegg has a 320GB. SATA can go much bigger, but Sony linked your model to a IDE hard drive.

I want to upgrade my Sony Vaio VGN-FS630/W - which largest storage hard drives are compatible and what specifications should I search for while purchase?


From the age and specification of your Sony Vaio VGN-FS630W laptop you will need to buy a 2.5inch IDE internal disk drive if you wish to upgrade the existing drive.
The capacity you select will depend on how much money you want to spend as disk drive prices are much higher at present due to problems in the countries making these in the Far East due to flooding.
The machine should have come with an 80GB drive so you should be able to upgrade to a 320GB IDE drive with no problem - higher capacity IDE drives may be harder to find as the majority of drives today are SATA technology.
The procedure to replace the hard drive is described with graphics in a document provided by Sony Support.
You will also need software to help you migrate your existing operating system, programs and data from the old drive to the new drive unless you intend to perform a clean install of a new version of Windows.
There are a number of commercial or free utilities that can help you do the migration - Acronis True Image (commercial) is very good and effective but has to be bought - alternatively, Easeus Todo Backup is a free utility that can do the same. Paragon Software also offer several free utilities that can help you backup your existing drive and restore the backup on to your new drive - Paragon Backup & Recovery 2012 Free is one of these.

How do I replace the hard drive on my sony Vaio VGN-NR120E?


To replace a hard drive, you'll need to backup any data you want to keep, uninstall the old hard drive, install the new hard drive, and then restore the backed up data.

The specific steps necessary to replace a hard drive differ depending on the type of hard drive you're replacing.

Sony Vaio vgn-fs640w does not power up nor does it


I went to the Sony Vaio support site for your model specifically and they mention a battery recall. There is a place on the site requiring specific information about your system and your battery to see if you are eligible for the recall. I would try this route to see if it resolves your issue. If not, I would say it is a blown transistor and you need to replace the motherboard. This means buying a new system, as Sony VAIO laptops are very proprietary and hard to find parts for.

Good Luck,

This is the link to the disassemble manual for your laptop. When you bring the link up, make sure to make a copy for yourself, it is free and in PDF format, do you need either adobe acrobat or foxit reader to open the file. scroll down the header on the left to HDD, that is the hard drive area. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
