You have to remove the base part of the laptop by removing all the screws including the little ones under the cd when the dvdrw is removed. and the ones under battery and there is one under the ram cover then the base comes off easily. just then remove the caddy locking screws one at the front and one and back
bingo bongo.

Hi there
Underneath the laptop you will find some panels with screws in them, 1 is for the memory, 1 is for the hard drive and so on, the laptop HDD will look similar to this >>>>> Where is the hard drive located in sony vaio vgn-n - b1923bb.jpeg.
They are pretty easy to replace once you are familiar with them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

    If its not underneath the laptop, have a look at the front and sides for hidden panels with screws, it will no doubt be hidden at the side, if you still can't find the hard drive it may be underneath the keyboard

    Good luck

    hi there
    its underneath the keyboard, under the metal grill, like this >> locate and remove the screws that holds the metal plate in place, then you should be left with something like this>>>> be careful when you have removed the screws because the sata cable is very fragile.

    Good luck

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.

I have a sony vaio vgn nr430e laptop the display goes off as soon as the cpu fan starts rotating


That could be a problem with the heatsink/fan assembly on the processor. It sounds like the processor is starting up, getting warm as they do, the fan starts up but does not cool efficiently enough and forces a shut down due to heat.
Clean out the fan assembly and replace the old heatsink compound on the processor heat sink.
Hope that helps.
