Question about Sony Computers & Internet
Try to remove the battery and start only with the power supply plugged in.
If that doesn't work try with an other Power supply (from an other Sony Vaio)
If that works with only the power supply plugged in, replace the battery with a new one.
If that still doesn't work that's an internal issue (you were thinking of buying a new laptop? Well, you can go ahaed)

try downloading the VIAO update tool
this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.
problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

Ebay mate...that is the place to get them whether there or here. Prices are good and the job is not a tough one if you have the manual

The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.
At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.
