Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K27 Notebook
That page has a lot of info on the machine. If you have the proper cable to connect that hard drive to another computer, you should be able to see the contents and recover data. When you connect the drive it should show up in the add hardware window. If it does not you have to go to the control panel and check the computer administration icon and then storage and see if it is listed and initialize. The drive may have totally failed though.

with a dead hard drive , retrieval of data is in the domain of experts who are set up to remove the disc and insert it in another unit --very costly and not cost effective unless you have business data to retrieve
working on a laptop is easy if you download the workshop manual for the lap top on another pc and print it out
best if you take it to an accredited computer repair shop and have them fit a new sshd unit to the laptop
--faster with no moving parts to fail and will not be affected by rough use
they may also have a name of the shop that does data retrieval

This issue will be resolved by replacing the fan in your pc. Go to radio shack or your local computer store for replacement.

You're on the right track--it doesn't need to be custom-manufactured for Sony notebooks--just needs to be an internal mobile IDE-PATA hard drive. Still, I would recommend at least looking for something name brand with a decent warranty. Amazon and Newegg.com both have the Western Digital WD2500BEVE (250GB) for $79.99. That's a decent price (not mind-boggling), but more importantly it's a solid size/price reference point--e.g., if you find a 500GB name-brand hard drive for the same price, pull the trigger immediately.

you would either format or delete all of the data from this drive if it has an operating system on it you would format it
you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
