You need a special type of screwdriver for this which is called Torx. You should be able to get one from any DIY/ hardware store

I have a Sony PCV-V300G with a bad DVD drive but don't know how to safely remove the rear cover. I removed the 2 1.25" screws at the lower edge or each side but no go. I Don't want to break anything. Any...


after you remove the screws, check every middle side if front, ther must be a hole in the mettle where is attached frome inside a plastick switch that holds it all together, pushe them on by one( opposit ones first), with somthing strong untill the are unleshed frome the metal, then remove the front end...and then its all done....
there might be some small other details u cannot apply this solution on all drives **** its the basic way....

How do I remove my DVD burner for replacement from my Sony VAIO PCV-RS720G? I get the two little screws out from the side, but then something hangs it up. Can't find what the hang up is. Thanks. Segalhund...


Segalhund, I appreciate your wanting a solution, but please refrain from stating your email addy.

There are three screws.
Facing the back of the computer.

One at the Top in the middle of the case cover.

One down on the Right side, straight across from where the monitor plugs into.

One down on the Left side straight across from where the monitor plugs into.

The cover is shaped like a hood, and slides towards the front of the computer.

I'm looking at the User Manual for the Sony Vaio PCV-RS720 Desktop PC right now.

This is Sony eSupport, and the download page for the Vaio PCVRS720G User Manual,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=PCV-RS720G&region_id=1

On this page left-click on Manuals, Specs, Warranty. (In blue to the upper right of the page)

On this page under the heading - Manuals -
left-click on - VAIO User Guide - in the list.

This is a PDF file. It may take as much as 30 seconds before you see the first page. Suggest you let it download all the way before looking through it.

Page 87 shows removing the cover.
