Ok, check it out. take off the RAM bay cover. Have the pc on a desk or your lap with the batt. facing you. Start at the far right corner. there are arrows by the screws. take them out moving to the left but stick you the forward portion of the laptop. buy the time you get to the cd rom, you should have about 10 screws. lift up the left corner and there she be. you should be able to pull it out without taking the whole thing off, but its up to you. Enjoy :)

    so I spoke to soon lol. you have to remove ALL of the screws with arrows. (not the ones in the batt bay) Then pull the bottom off. Now, there is one screw to the right of the drive and one to the left holding down the USB ports. once you remove those, pull back the USB and pull the HD to the left....now your done :P Good ol' sony.

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.

Sony VAIO VGN-NR385e vista windows crashed


Is it telling you you don't have an OS?Could be HDD has died.That would be relatively an easy fix and not too expensive.See if you can find a working hdd the same type ,pop it in and see if your restore disks will work.

Does the Sony VAIO VGN-NR385E have an internal mic? How do I find out? Also, I've heard about people complaining about it not being plugged in internally. How do you rectify this?


It appears that this unit does not come with a built-in mic and relies on an external mic being plugged into it for audio input. It is sold as a low-end or "Budget" machine and doesn't have many "bells and whistles".

The left button of Mousepad(one on laptop, but not touch pad) is often not working and sometimes need to press hard. Model VGN-NR38M, Sony Vaio. please help


I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .
