My Sony Vaio VGN-FS690P has stopped playing sound. The sound card states it is working correctly. It does play one sounds, the sound when it starts and show the VAIO screen.

Hopefully this helps. Right click on your volume control icon. Open the "Volume Mixer," and make sure that nothing has the mute X on. Then right click on "Volume Control," and make sure that the volume control is checked to play all sounds, and that your Speaker box is checked. Next step is your music, if the sound was muted directly @ the music playback, this could be the problem. Open your Media Player and try to play music, if you cannot hear it, click on the mute button to the song playing. If your Player was shut off in the "mute" mode, then you will not hear sound. It Happened to me once. You will need to check all of your "Players" to see if any of them were shut off in "mute."

Cant record online music. System only shows microphones not recording devices

They don't allow you to record online music. Seems like it should be easy to do, but it's because of copyright laws. The musicians/singers want to get paid. You can go to many websites and listen to the songs before you download your favorite songs for a buck a song. Pretty cheap actually when you consider you usually only find one or two good songs on an album that costs $12. Once you download it you have your own copy to burn to a CD. You can find all your favorites online. If you have songs already on CD you can copy them to your computer and make a CD of your favorites! Good luck

How do you change the Hard Drive for a Sony Vaio vgn-tt180? And where is the oem hard drive located? Thanks, Mo

Not a recommended thing Mo.
Granted I don't know your computer prowess, but it's an involved task, even for a tech.

First you make a backup of what's on your harddrive now. Burn to disk/s, all of your personal stuff, (If you haven't already done so)
(Everything in your My Documents folder. My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and documents you have created. You won't be able to transfer downloaded programs, or programs you have installed. Read on for how to do that)

You use an external enclosure, (2.5"), and put the new laptop harddrive in it. Then using a 'mirror' imaging program, like Norton Ghost, Acronis true Image, or DriveImage XML, you make a copy of your operating system, and all programs that are on the harddrive in the Vaio VGN-TT180.
External enclosures are cheap. You want one that is 2.5", and is Sata.

Now for the tough part, and the reason I don't recommend it.
With most laptops one removes a couple of screws, and slides the harddrive out of the side of the laptop case. Or remove a panel, and access it. Or, some have it where removal of the keypad grants you access.

Not the Sony Vaio, and especially not the Sony Vaio TT Series.

You have to turn the laptop over on it's top. Remove a series of 7 screws, or so. Six around the outside edge of the case, one in the middle/Front, next to the memory compartment cover. Then the laptop is turned back over, and a small flat tip jewelers screwdriver, is inserted into the slots above the keypad, and the keypad is released, and tilted back. The flat ribbon keypad cable, is then unclipped from the laptop.

There's a small White ribbon cable located towards the speaker grille, that has to be disconnected.
This is what connects the front panel buttons to the motherboard.
Now there's a screw right above the trackpad that has to be removed. (And CAREFULLY! It can easily be dropped inside! To get it back out, you MAY be lucky enough to pick the laptop up, turn it over, and gently shake it out. If you're not lucky, you get to disassemble the whole laptop!)

Next, a flat tip jewelers screwdriver is inserted in the parting line, where the upper half of the case, meets the lower half of the case. Start at the back towards the LCD screen, and ease the top panel up, working your way towards the front. Start on one side. As the top panel comes up a little on this side, go to the other side, and work it up. Bring the top panel up, as even as you can. It's thin, and can twist easily, binding it. The top panel is held on by a series of clips.

Once, you get both sides separated to the point you are at the front, the top panel lifts right off.
Now you can see the harddrive.
To the left side of it are two screws in the corners. These are removed. (DON'T drop them)

To the right, there is a screw in the Front corner. This is removed. The harddrive has a fabric strip attached to it, on the back of the case. You gently pull back, and as the harddrive comes out, you ease the back of it up, and pull straight out. Use extreme caution in this, as the little pins of the harddrive interface, could be bent!
Now you remove tow screws oneach side of the harddrive. This removes the metal frame that goes around it. The new harddrive is installed in this metal frame.

Now just reverse your steps.
Not a job for the timid! lol!
