Question about Sony VAIO VGN-AR630E Notebook

Open Question

I have a Sony Vaio model number PCG-7Z1M. The disk drive has completely stopped working and will not even spin a disk. I have taken the back off and have successfully detached the drive from the board so I am now looking at what looks like an open CD case. I have noticed that there is an orange ribbon that goes in the shape of a U....one end is connected to a small board and the other is not attached to anything although it does have connecters that look like they go somewhere! Can anyone advise or show me a picture of how it should look when open? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can download manuals, etc. at http://esupport.sony.com/ You can also order parts from there. There are several models listed for the PCG-6G4L that you specify, so I can't be as specific as I'd like to be, but you will be able to find it easily and put your new fan in :-)

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
