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 need to insatll a new memory card in my sony VGC-V517G computer how do I open it up?


Sony eSupport>VAIO VGC-V517G>Manuals,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=VGCV517G

On this page l would like you to left-click on - VAIO User Guide, under the Manuals heading.

A small window will pop up on the left side of the screen. It took almost 30 seconds before I saw the first page. The screen was white in the meantime.
(PDF file is downloading in the background)

In the Bookmarks to the left, scroll down to -
Upgrading and Maintaining Your VAIO Computer, and left-click on the + sign to expand the file.

Left-click on Installing Memory.
(Page 91)

Page 92 has details, and illustrations, on removing the computer back cover.

Barring something prevents you from downloading this PDF file;

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

2) Observe Anti-Static precautions

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame.

This will relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

3) Disconnect any Peripheral devices connected to your computer.

Advise lay a clean towel on the table.
Gently lay the computer down on the towel, LCD screen face down.

4) Slide the back cover towards the top of the LCD screen.
It will only slide up so far, then the top of the back cover, is tilted towards the back of the computer, and lifted off.
Set the back cover aside.

5) Back of the computer towards you, the Ram Memory Cover is on the Right side.

The cover looks like a panel. It is rectangular shaped. There are two screws holding the cover on. Remove these two screws, lift the Memory Cover off.

The Ram Memory modules are right there.

Need further guidance in removing and installing ram memory modules, state in a Comment.

How to upgrade RAM memory what to buy and is anything else be upgraded before this


It is a very simple thing to upgrade your Ram which is a great idea since you have only 512 MB. I suggest you buy at least 1 GB or more if you can afford it. Go to the link I am posting and let them scan your computer. They will tell you exactly what you can install and the price. This is a reputable site I use all the time. This will require a download of the scanner tool which is perfectly safe. http://www.crucial.com/
