    Hi there.
    If all the male pins stretch right across one end of the hard drive then it will be a 2.5ins IDE/ATA hard drive.

    Kind regards

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.

Once the setup files are copied don't let it boot from the cd-drive anymore, at the prompt "Press any key to boot from cd...", please do not press any of the keys. However you do require the cd in cd-rom for the rest of the setup.

Not the case at all. Capacities range from 8GB all the way to 2TB. You won't get as much storage space per dollar from an SSD but the performance gains will be substantial.

Dear Sirs Please advise 1) how to upgrade memory and hard drive on the VGN-T1XP/l notebook and 2) the cost of these two items/ Best regards Frank Beedie


The VGN-T1XP can use a maximum of 1gb of RAM! It has two slots, one already filled with 512mb, so you need a second of the same size.
Unfortunately, there are no simple covers to remove to access the memory or HDD - so I would assume you need to take the machine apart! So check with a REAL expert first....

The notebook does not start


It could be yes, but not always. It can be RAM failure, battery failure, Add-on card failure. first thing to check is its power source, then RAM, Add-on card, checking also it power button. Sometimes non booting unit is only due to dirty contact.

I usually check its power source, then clean the RAM with soft eraser, if that doesn't help I try to check other add on card. Next is it drive I disconnect them then try to power up without the drive if it can able to POST.
