This was a real pain because Sony doesn't and won't release a hardware maintenance manual. You have to take all the screws off that you see on the bottom with the little arrow next to them. Slide out the optical drive and remove the 3 screws hiding behind it. Remove the battery and take out the 3 screws behind it. Now look at the bottom of they keyboard below the row of keys with the space bar in it. There are 4 tabs that have to be pushed toward the touchpad to release the keyboard. It should swivel up now. Be careful as there is a ribbon cable behind it. Gently slide the dark brown bar away or to the right from the beige connector in the keyboard. That will release the ribbon cable. You can now see the last screw holding the top cover in place. Unscrew that screw and then you can remove the top cover. Gently pop up the edges of the top cover and work your way around. You will have to swivel the screen as far back as it goes to pop up the cover. You can just lift and move the top cover toward the screen now and reveal the hard drive. The touchpad has a smaller ribbon cable so you can choose to disconnect it if you want, but you don't have to. There are two long screws near the SATA connector that you have to remove. After taking them out, you can gently slide the drive out to the loft, caddie and all. I suggest labeling all the screws as you take them out or taping them in similar positions on a piece of paper so you can put them back in.

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.

My laptop sony vgn n365e.but sound is not coming


If you've checked all the settings with your sound driver, and maybe tried to boot another OS (Like ubuntu), it looks like there is anissue with your logic board. However many times it's a broken headphone jack too, so I wouldn't exclude thatpossibility. I work for Sony Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

Bluethooth for sony vaio vgn-n365e


A bluetooth adapter does not come standard on the vgn-n365e. It is available as an optional component, but unless you ordered this specifically, your machine does not support it. Bluetooth is not just software; if the laptop does not have the proper hardware built into it, you cannot use bluetooth.

The best way to check is to look at the Device Manager (click Start>>Run>>type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter. If you do not see a line that says Bluetooth Adapter, your machine will not support it.

I have lost my recovery data(sony vaio vgn n365e).where i can find this?


Hello,

If the data was on a recovery partition and that sector was destroyed, you will need the restore disk for your system. If you do have it, you can purchase a new one from Sony.

Good Luck
