Question about Sony VAIO VGN-TXN25N/B PC Notebook
I want to remove the hard drive. I've removed the battery and have removed 8 screws from the bottom - every screw that had a little arrow pointing to it.
I thought the next step would be to lift either the keyboard or separate the case. The case won't quite separate. I found tabs and removed the keyboard (the ribbon came out with it), but still don't see how to get to the hard drive.
Usually the laptop hard disk is only reside in the side of the laptop. Sometime you need to remove the small cover first before you can see the screw. Look in the right side of the laptop or in the back but there is also laptop model that the hard disk is below of the keyboard.

Tips for a great answer:
Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them to
put the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the Power
Cord, Remove the Battery then start removing all the
screws from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices from
the bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive,
wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card,
those are the antennas.
Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold the keyboard in place.
Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.
Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.
Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.
Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.
A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory of where things were.
