I do a fair number of laptop repairs and the most common method for removing the keyboard is to unscrew all screws on the bottom of the unit(some may be hidden by rubber feet), then push the screen back so that it is totally open as far as it will go, finally the plastic above the keyboard is usually a seperate piece that simply snaps off. Be very gentle and, if your Sony is setup the way I descirbed, pry the edge of the plastic up. Continue pulling the plastic up until you can lift it away. This should expose the screws that hold the keyboard in. Sometimes there is also a screw below the keyboard that holds the DVD drive in as well. I have not repaired your specific model before, but every Sony laptop that I have repaired uses a method similar to this. Good luck!

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.

Vaio VGN-S460 won't boot


Maybe simply buy another SATA HDD to replaced faulty one, which you said it came with "clicking noises".

you also can try hold tee 'C" or "F12" when you power on the laptop to get from DVD booting.
