HD Crashed need instructions on how to get into Laptop
I would like to replace my HD on my PCG-Z1VAP. I can not figure out how to get into the case. Sony says the motherboard and HD are intergrated, but I see HD's for sale on the internet. Any help with directions to open the case and if the HD can be replaced would be helpful.

Call sony, the disk is 12 bucks. I had this problem after my hard drive crashed. Be careful though, because I replaced the hard drive and it would not recognize the disk after that. Sony wanted me to pay 100 dollars to fix it.
Due to regional differences of the models, some model numbers may only be applicable to certain limited regions, could you pls try and verify if your PCG-8N1M is identical to the PCG-GRT895MP. If yes, you may want to try here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Is the laptop running hot? Perhaps you need to get a can of compressed air and clean it up. This is just a suggestion, since you seem to be getting a crash at different points. Hopefully it is just a heating problem. No doubt others here will have other suggestions.
It's probably the power socket on the laptop not the power jack on the AC adapter. You need to open the laptop by removing the casing screws. Then remove the motherboard from the base so a new socket can be soldered on.
I think it maybe mounted through to top of your laptop under the keyboard, for instructions on how to remove keyboard and sometimes the HDD is held in a carrier.
