The hard drive is under the keyword, in the middle of the laptop. Screw the left side of cover (power button) under the screen, pull it and later remove the keyword.

Look on the under side and the sides for a cover that should be marked HD, if you find one open the cover/carriage and you'll be there. If not you may have to open the case of the laptop to access the HD (not any fun). There should be a cover or carriage though.
Good luck.

I have a sony vaio pcg. it powers on and does nothing else. the 2 little cooling fans come on but the hard drive doesn't run and screen won't come on. can anyone help me out. thanks


Hello,

Its possible that you already have a bad hard drive. It may have crashed. Your system will not boot without the hard drive running. The computer will keep on trying to look for the Hard drive that's probably why it looks like its doing nothing. Bring your machine to sony and have them fix it. If you know how to open up your Vaio, try to check the Hard drive connection and see it its loose, if its not loose. its time to replace the hard drive.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

No access panel for that. That is located on the motherboard. You will have to take of the keyboard to get access to it.
