This is the link to the disassemble manual for your laptop. When you bring the link up, make sure to make a copy for yourself, it is free and in PDF format, do you need either adobe acrobat or foxit reader to open the file. scroll down the header on the left to HDD, that is the hard drive area. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Will first you need to go to the Sony VGN-SZ250P eSupport site & understand all the shock proofing componets connected w/ the hard drive. The next question is the the hard drive is meant to be replace by Factor tech's. But, if your pass that go to the hard drive section at the Sony VGN-SZ250P and get instructions on the Sony® Hard Disk Drive Protection Driver and exe file, & FAQ & solutions has reinstallation of the hard drive questions and answers. It seems you better download the files and exe files before you start or have access to them while getting your laptop reinstalled. I can't say you won't destory your computer changing the hard drive, if it doesn't work and out of warranty what could it hurt. Make sure your computer is unplugged and the battery isn't in during installation.

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.

How do I replace the hard drive on my sony Vaio VGN-NR120E?


To replace a hard drive, you'll need to backup any data you want to keep, uninstall the old hard drive, install the new hard drive, and then restore the backed up data.

The specific steps necessary to replace a hard drive differ depending on the type of hard drive you're replacing.
