You must partition the new hard drive, sometimes that step can be bypassed by just hitting Enter at the prompts. It has to be partitioned and then the partition has to be formatted through the Windows setup routine. By sure and partition it as a primary partition.

What is the max size and speed of hard drive you can install in a sony viao vgn-fs920?


On the Hard Drive you can put almost anything with it that sony supports I would suggest that you use a external drive 1 TB then there is no problems and everything you have on the old one is accessible. 2G is the max on memory you can get everything at office depot total cost would be around $150 not really hard to install.

Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E recovery disk


Hello

Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Thanks

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.

Optical drive sony viao vgn fs840/w won't register


try downloading the VIAO update tool
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFS840W&upd_id=2775&os_id=7

this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.

problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

Hi there.
There are normally 2 kinds of hard drives in laptops at the moment apart from solid state HDD's which are mainly in Acer Onebooks etc.

2.5ins IDE HDD which looks like this >>>>>>

2.5ins SATA HDD which looks like this >>>>>
