    I already have the document you have referred me to. What I need are some clear instructions on how to disassemble the laptop so that I can change the optical drive.

Go into the BIOS and in Startup change the DVD/CD drive as the first boot device, then the laptop will boot up with the recovery disk. Make sure the recovery disk is in the DVD/CD drive before you booy up your laptop.

Hey my laptop, on start up says there is a there is an hard drive fault and failure is immentent and to back up data.... press F1 to continue.... this has happened for the past 1yr now it wont turn on at...


The error indicates that the Hard Drive in the computer has crashed and will require a replacement.
I made a quick search and found the part # of the HDD that was shipped with your model. It is
A1065524A. I would suggest that you replace the HDD with one with the same specification that was came with the computer.

You may either purchase it from Sony parts center or third party vendors.

I'm assuming you mean drivers...
the wireless driver is here:
I can't find the sound driver, but you should be able to either 'update' the driver from the device manager, or download all sound drivers from the following link, burn to CD, and let the computer update from that automatically...

Dead Sony Laptop

If power supply is supplying correct voltage, then you do not need power supply PCB.

Try starting the laptop with AC adapter and no battery, if battery is shorting out you may get same problem.

Test the soldering joint on the AC socket and laptop motherboard, if there is a bad soldering on laprop ac adapter socket, you get same symptoms.

If it is none of the above, and the adapter is fine, then it is usually a faulty motherboard.
