Question about Sony VAIO® VGN-S660P/B PC Notebook
I need to remove the hard drive, I have removed all the screws but the center of the back panel will not come loose, am i removing the wrong part, or do I need to remove the keyboard and remove it from that side?
On this line of Sony models replacing the hard drive is a pain because the computer must be taken completely apart to get to the hard drive. It is located under the palm rest. I looked up the Sony manual for this model and it does not show how to replace the hard drive -- meaning it should only be done by a trained tech.
You'll have to remove all the screws from the bottom and underneath the keyboard. Carefully detach the keyboard and set it aside. Once all the screws are remove from the laptop you should be able to separate the top of the casing from the bottom, this usually requires a small amount of force but too much force will crack the plastic! Underneath you will find the hard drive cage.
Also, some laptop vendors like to pull the 'hidden screw' trick! There may be a screw underneath the CD-rom drive so that may have to be removed or under some of the rubber feat on the laptop.
I couldn't find a photos or manuals that show how to do this, but these guys say they have a manual for a small fee. http://www.9manuals.com/Vaio2.htm
They want $5.99 for the manual but that is much cheaper than paying a technician to do it for you.
Good luck and be careful!
