That link for the PCG-K series is no good (e.g. a site for how to take apart an printer would be just as useful; sorry Martin Murray).
I have the same laptop as you (PCG-6Z4L), couldn't find a site. Like most laptops, it's about getting all the screws out and then being gentle with the plastic barbs (spudger or fingernail helps). In our case, there's only one hidden screw, discoverable by taking off the memory plate. The other tricky part is separating the top most plastic keyboard/palmrest assembly from the rest (then your on to getting at things like the hinge).
I've attached a pic so that you can see your laptop in two pieces (i.e. that part of the lighter grey stays with the darker grey; again, spudger or fingernail and knowing the two separate should help).

How do you remove the hard drive from the pcg-6z4l Sony Vaio?


Remove the bottom cover. Make note where are each screw located because they're different.
After you removed the entire cover, you'll have access to the hard drive.
The screws you need to remove have an arrow mark.

Hi . is vgn sz430n the same as PCG 6Q1L ?? I


Yes, VGN-SZ430N is similar to the PCG-6Q1L.
The only difference between the two coding is that the first one is the model # of the Computer used by the technical support team or sales support team for providing assistance however, the later is the Hardware configuration code of the Computer that categorizes a few models.

Help me please


PCG-5K7B is a General model # of a VAIO Computer.

To locate the exact Model # of the VAIO Computer:

Option 1:

You can find the model number of the VAIO Notebook on a small label located either on the bezel of the LCD display or on the LCD hinge or at the top left or top right of the keyboard. Try to locate the model number that starts with PCG or VGN continued with alphabets and then with numerical values.

Option 2:

You may also go to START menu and click on 'RUN' option and enter 'msinfo32' to locate the exact Model of your Computer.

Or
Please goto Start Menu, select 'All programs', select 'Accessories' to access 'Run' option.

In RUN command window type 'msinfo32' and press the Enter key to open the System Information window to locate the Model # of the Computer.

NOTE: Your Computer model # may start with VGN-CR and then with numerical values.

After getting the model #, visit this Link to get the drivers for your Computer. Select the Operating System to download the drivers.

Screen on Sony VAIO PCG-SRX99 needs to be tightened.


you will have to take the bezel front plate of the screen off and check to see if anything there has broken from the hinges. there are usually two-three screws holding the hinge to the screens back cover and two-three holding it in place on the base of the laptop. if all those are intact you will need to replace the hinges.

good luck

What Your Actually looking For Are Drivers For The:- VGN-FS485B.
So many people get confused, with Sonys Model And Make Numbers.
Theres usually 1 located Underneath The Base of the Laptop, And 1 On the lower right/Hand/Side Of The Screen Or hinge Cover. ( Differs On Newer models )
The Number on the Screen/Hinge Is usually the Actual Number to search Drivers/Parts et,c For.
If you Go here:- http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/preinstalled/preinstalled.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&c=0&s=VGN-FS&m=2203
