    Found the field manual.

    You have to take the main cover off, by unscrewing from the bottom. The hard drive is under the keyboard palm rest, lower right. Other parts have to be removed first.

    Thanks. Hope this helps for future reference.

How to remove hard drive from sony vaio pcg-2c1l


As you install new programs, rip music files from CDs or download data from the Internet, the hard drive on your Sony Vaio PCG laptop will eventually fill up and run out of room. You can replace the hard drive with a new one that has a larger capacity.

Power off the Sony Vaio PCG laptop, disconnect the power cord and then close the lid. Flip the computer over so that the bottom is facing up toward you. Press down on the raised latch that holds the battery into place and then pull the battery out of the laptop. Locate the five screws arranged in a square pattern on the right side of the laptop case. Take a screwdriver and remove all of the screws. Slide your fingernail or the tip of the screwdriver underneath the seam of the square plastic cover and lift it up. Grab the cover and remove it. Pull out the two screws that hold the hard drive onto the motherboard. Grab both ends of the hard drive and carefully pull it directly upward for about an inch so that you can see the cable connected to the motherboard. Disconnect the cable and then pull the hard drive the rest of the way out. Take out the four mounting screws that are located on both side edges of the hard drive. Take the replacement hard drive and install the mounting screws into its left and right sides. Plug the cable that runs from the motherboard into the corresponding port on the replacement hard drive. Check the direction of the new hard drive and lay it into the open slot in the same direction as the old hard drive. Use the two screws you pulled out earlier to hold it in place. Slide the cover piece back on and replace the five screws. Push the battery back into the laptop until the latch snaps into place. Hope this helps.

Red light flashing on ps3.not over heated as only switched on for 2 minytes if that


OK - the problem could be with the hard drive connection - I have had the same problem after having moved the PS3 from one place to another. Apparently the same falshing red light fault indication is caused by either a poor hard drive connection or damaged hard drive.

Disconnect the powewr, remove the hard drive cover on the left hand side of the PS3, remove the blue screw (philips head), lift the metal latch and move to the right, the hard drive will disconnet and can be withdrawn from the unit.
Put it back in (carefully!) and slide it to the left, there is enough space on the left side of the drive to either slip in a finger or screw driver and ensure it is fully home.

Lower the metal clip back into place, replace the blue screw and cover and it should now boot up when powered on - if it doesn't, try the same procedure a couple of times - if this still doesn't clear the problem, it could be a faulty drive.

Hi ! Ive got Packard Bell Notebook EasyNote GN45 ! I would like to put in bigger hard drive , but i cant take out old one ! Can u tell me how to do this ?


You should an anti static strap. It's available at any hardware store. First turn off unit. Unplug the ac adaptor.

Perform the following steps to remove the battery:
1. Make sure the power is off.
2. Turn the unit upside down.
3. Unlock the left battery lock.
4. Push battery lock on right outward to the release the battery.
5. Slide the battery out.

Now's the time for the strap. In lieu of that touch an unpainted metal part of the case and try to maintain contact. If you lose contact just touch again.

To remove the hard disk drive, then perform the following steps:

1. Remove the screws on the hard disk drive cover and carefully open it.
Cover is on the corner. ( 1" x 3")
2.
Pull out the hard disk drive using the plastic tab.
3. Remove the two screws on both sides of the hard disk drive shield.

That's all there is. Easy right? If you don't have an anti static bag wrap it in some bubble wrap to keep it safe.

Just reverse to put in new hard drive. If this helped you please rate a big 4 fix ya. Thanks. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll get right back to you.
