    My DVD/CD drive has stopped functioning. I would like to replace it and need repair instructions as well. I looked on the bottom of my case, found a single screw that may have been the screw mentioned in the reply post, but after I removed the screw, the drive remained fixed. Note: the replacement drives listed on ebayhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=270301293353, show three metal tabs which would appear to be mounting tabs. These would prevent the drive from simply sliding out. Therefore, I am also seeking dis-assembly instructions. Can anyone help?

Sony Vaio VGN A-690 no battery detected


Yeah. If when you take out the A/C adapter, the laptop goes off immediately, even though you have bought a new battery, then it's definitely some hardware issue with the laptop itself. I'd say just live with it as it wouldn't be worth getting fixed (cheaper to get a new laptop).

If it can run on battery fine, it's just that windows indicates that the battery is not detected, then it could be a software issue. But given it's the same in Windows 7 as with XP, this could be BIOS related. Perhaps try flashing the BIOS?

Sony vaio vgn-sz430n cooling fan how to replace it


Below is a link to the official Sony Vaio VGN-SZ430N Disassembly and Assembly manual. It provides step-by-step instructions for disassembling your Viao notebook to replace the fan. Please note, however, that this process is quite complicated and should not be attempted unless you have considerable experience servicing computers. You WILL need to almost completely disassemble your machine to perform a fan replacement. If you have any hesitance at all about this undertaking, consult with a professional before starting.

Here is the link: http://home.comcast.net/~nw_systems/vgnSZ.pdf

I need to know how to install a laptop hinge on a sony vaio a690? Is it required that I remove the lcd when I attempt to install the hinge?


As the hinge is what binds the display assembly to the laptop itself, you will need to remove the display assembly in order to replace the hinge. However, if you are only replacing the hinge cover, then you don't have to remove the display assembly.
