II replace the hard drive in my sony vio all in one desktop, wil that correct all errors


It depends on the type of errors you are experiencing. Replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system may resolve a great deal of software related problems, including issues with the operating system. And it will also resolve any hardware related issues that you had with the original hard drive. But replacing the drive won't help with other hardware related problems such as motherboard, ram, power supply and optical drive issues.

WHERE IS THE HARD DRIVE LOCATED ON A SONY VIO PCG11211L


Here is the support link for the computer (it was apparently bought in Latin America region so the manuals are in Spanish) it is apparently a VPCJ125FL/B J Series All In One PCG-11211L
All in one machines typically need to be totally disassembled to get at the hard drive, and the screen may have to be removed. Please refer this repair to a competent technician if you are not experienced. VAIO Series All in One

Hi, my Sony Vaio starts with message about upcoming hard drive crash. The HD is however Toshiba's, MK8025GAS-(PM). Is that possible? My laptop is 4 years old. Thanks


vita_london

It is possible that the hard drive is not Sony brand hard drive as they do not manufacture there own hard drives. As for the message that you are getting it is because the hard drive is failing over to many sectors. With the drive being 4 years old this would be just the drive wearing out. So I would recommend you back up your data ASAP and replace the hard drive. You should be able to replaces it with the same type of drive. You just need to know if you need a PATA or SATA drive. The link below will help you figure that out.

I have a Sony Vio NoteBook Computer-Model PCG-992L.


With the Sony, if you do not make a recovery disk set from a functioning laptop, you are out of luck. However, you can load any retail version of an operating system, go to this link
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCGTR3A
to download all of the device drivers, and continue using your laptop.

Good luck

Trying to boot from a hd from my old comp


Hi,

MS Windows XP when installed to an HD will "marry" itself to the hardware of the original computer specifically the motherboard. Transplanting the HD to another PC with a different motherboard will result in a cycling blue screen of death or protective message requiring that you reboot. Running in Safe Mode will not also be allowed.

You need to re-install your OS (boot from CD) but choose the 2nd repair option rather than a new/clean install or the first repair option if you want to preserve your other applications as well as your settings/configuration. Doing this will allow the OS to install the new device drivers and delete the old ones.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

God luck and kind regards.
