How do i access the hard drive on Sony Vaio VGC LS-25E?

I need to replace the hard drive on a Sony Vaio VGC LS-25E "All in One" PC - not sure if have to take the whole back panel off of not. I can't find any info in the manual on where the drive actually is. I'm assuming this is the same design as the other VGS-LS models that are out there so if anybody knows how to access the drives on thoes I'd appreciate any info.

    I too am not sure how the inside back panel comes off after removing 3 sets of screws (about 18 of them). Still seems to not free up and am afraid to force it. Anyone out there done one of these before? gjensen@esmv.org

Remove the screws for the mount as well and take it off from there the back will just pull right up

Same problem with my VGC-JS160J -- hard drive and back panel.
Not expecting much of an answer, seeing how it's over 4 years later, but has anyone figured out how to remove the back panel? I've removed at least 18 screws -- 14 visible from the outside -- and still, the panel sticks in the middle, right above the prop leg/stand. I've yet to remove the prop, as it seems a bit touchy, but am reluctant to try Sony for repairs.
All I need to do is replace the HD; why must it be so hard?!

It doesn't look like Sony wants us to open these things up to do our own upgrades. I can't even find references to upgrades. At this point, I think you might have to contact Sony tech support. Personally, I can't imagine it's any more difficult than upgrading a laptop though.

How do you remove a hard drive on a Sony Vaio VGC-V617G? Thank you


The hard drive is located in the rear of the base. Remove the black plastic cover. Just look for the black screws holding it in then pull it back and up. The hard drive is held in place by four screws on the back side. Some components in this PC are for laptops however the hard drive is a standard PC size and connections.

My hard drive just crashed on my Sony Vaio VGC-LS30e so I replaced the hard drive with a WD SATA HD and the computer is not recognizing it, neither is BIOS. Any suggestions? I went to put the old HD in as...


A bit of research revealed that the system came with a 250GB SATA drive, and the BIOS should have recognized either drive. Check the cable from the Hard Drive to the Mother Board if possible, including the Power connectors.
