You think its the hard drive i think its the colling system and do not know what gives here? But this tech wanted to give you the easy answer to blow you off.. But a dianostic CD to fix a hard drive noise I doubt it. Check fans,check moving parts. If the hard disk is not giving your problems check other things

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.

Sony VIAO VGN-N365E. Will not boot up. I have the green indicator lights...and can hear the CD check fire up....and the Fan does come on. But, no image on the screen. Nothing. I have removed the...


Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6430776-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com

My laptop sony vgn n365e.but sound is not coming


If you've checked all the settings with your sound driver, and maybe tried to boot another OS (Like ubuntu), it looks like there is anissue with your logic board. However many times it's a broken headphone jack too, so I wouldn't exclude thatpossibility. I work for Sony Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

Bluethooth for sony vaio vgn-n365e


A bluetooth adapter does not come standard on the vgn-n365e. It is available as an optional component, but unless you ordered this specifically, your machine does not support it. Bluetooth is not just software; if the laptop does not have the proper hardware built into it, you cannot use bluetooth.

The best way to check is to look at the Device Manager (click Start>>Run>>type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter. If you do not see a line that says Bluetooth Adapter, your machine will not support it.

I have lost my recovery data(sony vaio vgn n365e).where i can find this?


Hello,

If the data was on a recovery partition and that sector was destroyed, you will need the restore disk for your system. If you do have it, you can purchase a new one from Sony.

Good Luck
