I have a Sony VAIO GRZ610, old i know. Won't power up,


If you cannot get the laptop working then try this method.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and you can open the various folders and files, then you can backup and or transfer your data to another computer. If yiu install the hard drive in an USB hard drive case then you can use this hard drive as an external USB hard drive.

1st hard drive is full. i don't know how to make


You only actually only have ONE drive in a laptop, you may however have TWO partitions, you simply have to remove what you don't need, transfer stuff over to the "Other" partition, run disk cleanup and compress drive to get space, & defragment. remove whatever you don't use or need. OR get a USB Hard drive and transfer them there.

I have an old sony vaio with a 60 gb hard


How "full" is the hard-drive? Perhaps, you could have only a few gigabytes to be "saved".

Click Start
Click My Documents
Click Edit
Click Select All
Right-mouse click on any of the highlighted items.
Click Properties.
Windows will report on the size (megabytes/gigabytes) of all the selected documents and folders.

Perhaps, you can buy 4GB or 8GB or 16GB USB memory-stick,
and manually copy your 'My Documents' files/folders to that memory-stick.

Or, use the "Windows Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to "collect" all your files & E-mail, and write an "export" file to that memory-stick.

Then, on the "new" computer, run the same Wizard, and "import" from the USB memory-stick onto your new computer.

Computer is very slow websurfing, would changing the hard-drive from 100 gb to 320gb help alot with this, and if so, will I loose all my stored info?


you can check to see how much free space you have on your 100 gb drive ... just right click on the C: drive icon .. and then select "properties" .. if you have lots of space left then thats not your problem and a new 320 gb wont help .. if you see that you are running out of space (like less than 10 or 20 gb) then it will help .. you can transfer or ghost your entire drive over to the new drive if you have the proper equipment .. or if you take it somewhere to have it done .. you may have to reregister your operating system but that only takes a phone call or an internet click .. much more likely your computer is full of spy and ad-ware unless you have a good security suit that takes care of that sort of stuff ... if you dont have any anti spy-ware program then "spybot search and destroy" is a good start and its free ... some anti virus programs can really slow a computer down .. if you have a good one stick with it .. if you dont then AVAST or AVG are really good and free ... if you havent done so you can "clean up your hard drive" .. that includes getting rid of temporary file clutter and defragging the hard drive ..you should do that every couple of months or schedule it to happen at set intervals .. check how much memory you have .. most computers today should have 1gig or more memory .. if you have only 256 or 500 meg then things will run slow .. depending on what your operating system is .. XP will work ok on 500meg Vista wont .. ...both can benifit form increased memory ..

Your hard drive is an IDE type so any capacity IDE laptop drive would work. The largest size memory module it can support is a 512 mb and this laptop has 2 memory sockets so it can support two 512 mb pc2100 type sodimms.

Bigger hard drive


I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.
