You need a Serial ATA hard drive, and you may have a limit to how big of a hard drive you can go to.
Go to your local computer supply store and tell them what you need,,and they will sell you a compatible unit.
As to what type of drives to buy,,,,there are many types of drives,,and many opinions,,get the highest spin rate is all i would suggest.

My HD has died and I need to replace the HD on my Sony VGN-NR21M/S Laptop. I s this something I ca do myself? Is it just a case of purchasing a new HD and fitting it or is it more complex? Many thanks -...


This laptop comes with a 200 GB SATA interface drive. You can replace it with any capacity you want. Most people who have extensive music and picture collections, usually go with a 500 GB drive. These go for approx. 100 bucks on Ebay. Just make sure it is SATA and is 2.5 inch form for the laptop. When replacing a drive, there may be driver or "Initializing" software with it. The drive has to "initialized" in order to be used. It will probably need the software run if it is replacing the main drive. Below is the service manual to illustrate replacing procedures for your laptop.

Laptop will not boot, Sony Vaio VGN CR220E, lights come on, don't hear the Hard drive start up, however. I get the clunks from the CD drive, but that's all.


Hi,
Such problems happen when you have either faulty RAM or faulty Mother Board. Repairing MotherBoard Chip is a costly affair but replacing RAM is convenient and most probable solution.
