Hi, own a Sony Vaio VGN P530H with hardisk Toshiba MK6028GAL damaged. as forced to replace unit, wonder could install a higher capacity? Brand & model if available please!!! thanks to all of you!!!


The VAIO VGN-T350 is a notebook computer designed and distributed by Sony.
The hard drive on your Sony VAIO VGN-T350, which is the unit that stores data, consists of many clusters of data that can be rewritten with new data.
If you are looking for a memory capacity upgrade, or if your old hard drive is having errors, it's time for an upgrade.
Upgrading the hard drive on your Sony VAIO will require the use of a screwdriver and will take you about 30 minutes to complete.

Turn off your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and remove the power cord and any other peripheral components.
Turn over your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and locate the hard drive chamber on the bottom of your laptop. It will be clearly labeled.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the lid in place.
Gently lift the hard drive and its cage away from your laptop and disconnect the data cord.
Remove the four screws located at the corners, and then remove your old hard drive from its cage.
Place your new internal laptop hard drive into the cage and replace the screws.
Connect the data cord to your new hard drive and place your new hard drive into its chamber.
Close the lid and replace the screw to complete the operation.

Replacing hard drive


Well first of all does it have a Hard Drive or what they call the Solid State Drive (SSD) which looks like a wireless card or some type of circuit board?

Next thing is where is the drive located, no matter which type, where is it? On most systems the drive is on the bottom of the laptop, so all you have to do is remove the screws from the cover that houses the drive. Normally the cover will have the icon of 3 circular discs on it.

Sometimes the drive, no matter which type, will be located under the plamrest or keyboard, when means you have to take the unit apart to get to it.

OK, you're in luck.. I checked your manual and it says you have a 60GB SATA Hard Drive, but it did not say where it was located.

Anyone know how to get to the hard drive in an old Sony PCG-F309?


LOL, the hard drive is probably located under the Keyboard or the palmrest. Sony was known for putting it under the keyboard or palmrest on older models.

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.

Location of the hard drive


Hi,
Turn the desktop round so the back of it is facing you.
Remove the screws that are on the bottom left and right, and in the top middle and remove the outer casing by sliding the case towards you.

Once the outer cover is removed face the case so you can see the motherboard.
The hard drive is located behind the front panel of the case underneath the CD/DVD drives.
It should be laid on its side with cables coming from it.
As far as i know the hard drive bay will just slide out but there may be holding screws.


Regards.

Replacing Hard Drive in a Sony VAIO SZ330P/B


Turn your Vaio upside down and look for an easy access panel or release lever to remove the hard drive carriage. You will probably need a small Philip's screw driver to remove the carriage, but I don't think you need to remove the keyboard.

Vaio VGN-TXN25N, need to remove hard drive


Usually the laptop hard disk is only reside in the side of the laptop. Sometime you need to remove the small cover first before you can see the screw. Look in the right side of the laptop or in the back but there is also laptop model that the hard disk is below of the keyboard.

Removing the hard drive to a Sony VAIO VGN-S660PNotebook?


On this line of Sony models replacing the hard drive is a pain because the computer must be taken completely apart to get to the hard drive. It is located under the palm rest. I looked up the Sony manual for this model and it does not show how to replace the hard drive -- meaning it should only be done by a trained tech.

You'll have to remove all the screws from the bottom and underneath the keyboard. Carefully detach the keyboard and set it aside. Once all the screws are remove from the laptop you should be able to separate the top of the casing from the bottom, this usually requires a small amount of force but too much force will crack the plastic! Underneath you will find the hard drive cage.

Also, some laptop vendors like to pull the 'hidden screw' trick! There may be a screw underneath the CD-rom drive so that may have to be removed or under some of the rubber feat on the laptop.

I couldn't find a photos or manuals that show how to do this, but these guys say they have a manual for a small fee. http://www.9manuals.com/Vaio2.htm

They want $5.99 for the manual but that is much cheaper than paying a technician to do it for you.

Good luck and be careful!
