How do I have access to the hard drive on my vaio VGN-a150

I need to replace the hard disk but I cannot find the way to open it. I inescrewd 23 screws from the bottom cover and still nothing happen. Can you help me? Is there a hidden key that I should be aware of? I contacted Sony Tech Support but they refused to give me any technical information and their solution on send it over takes too much money and time. Thanks.

Sony vaio vgn series laptop - when xp os loading blue screen appears and display the msg hard disk drive not detected.


system not found in my experience generally leads to a damaged or loose hard drive, try to open the cover at the bottom side of the machine, and reseat the hard drive, if it still says system not found, get a 2.5 inch drive case, put your laptop drive in the case and connect it to another machine, if you can access the drive great! save all your files and once complete return the drive to your machine and try to reinstall the OS from a dvd then reinstall your files.. and if still having the same problem replace hard drive thanks.

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.

I like to replace old hard disk


There are panel/covers on the base or near the bottom edge of most laptops these enclose the RAM and hard drive. Remove these screws and covers to reveal the hard drive and possibly the hard drive carrier.
Before you attempt this I suggest to login to the Sony WEB site and download the drivers for the graphics and sound device including modem and LAN if you don't already have them and back up your data. You will need these drivers when you install a new and larger hard disk and the operating system.

Replacing Hard Drive in a Sony VAIO SZ330P/B


Turn your Vaio upside down and look for an easy access panel or release lever to remove the hard drive carriage. You will probably need a small Philip's screw driver to remove the carriage, but I don't think you need to remove the keyboard.

Well, it's not good news. Official word from Sony:

Knowledge Article C309925...

Can the notebook hard drive be upgraded or replaced

Hard drive upgrades in the notebook computer are not supported.

NOTES:

* Some notebook computer have instructions for warranty replacement of the hard drive by an end user.
* Although third-party upgrades may be available for some models, they are not supported.
* If the hard drive needs service, repair should be done by an authorized Sony service center.
* External hard drives may be attached if the appropriate connections are available.
....

This basically means complete disassembly of the laptop is required to get at the hard drive. Not that it can't be done. Just that it'll be a major pain in the .... you know.

There is no hidden key!
