Hi, have a look at your hard drive, record exactly what you have. Replacements are easily available, once you know what you need. (It does not have to be from Sony) If you need help come back to me, but ensure you are carefull with components inside your PC

MODEL IS VAOI VGN-NR21M_S HARD DRIVE FAIL, CANT INSTALL NEW OPERATING SYSTEM ON NEW DRIVE AS WINDOWS NOT PICKING UP NEW HARD DRIVE, IN BIOS THER IS NO OPTION TO SET IT TO AUTO DETECT, HELP!!


Hi !

For some reason, some hard disk will be damage due to bad sector and you cannot do anything about it not reinstall any operating system.

If the Hard Disk Drive failed to install the operating system, the hard drive is damaged and cannot be reformat. The only solution is to replace new Hard disk drive to install the operating system.

I have a Sony VGN-FZ150E notebook that died. The Motherboard is fried. Can you tell me the best way to get it replaced or replace it myself? Any idea where I can get the part the cheapest?


The motherboard on that laptop is a real bear to replace. Your best bet is to find another dead one but that has a good motherboard (which is very hard to do) and try to make a frankenstein out of the two. What I would do if it were mine is just buy a new laptop and an external drive enclosure for the hard drive out of the dead Sony, then transfer the files from the old hard drive to the new laptop. Good luck!

Dear I have a sony vaio vgn-cr220e laptop, whith a hard drive of 200 GB. I would like to replace by other hard drive of more capacity (about 500Gb o 1TB). Please, suggest to me what model of drive i have...


you need a Serial ATA hard drive, and you may have a limit to how big of a hard drive you can go to.
Go to your local computer supply store and tell them what you need,,and they will sell you a compatible unit.
As to what type of drives to buy,,,,there are many types of drives,,and many opinions,,get the highest spin rate is all i would suggest.
