I do a fair number of laptop repairs and the most common method for removing the keyboard is to unscrew all screws on the bottom of the unit(some may be hidden by rubber feet), then push the screen back so that it is totally open as far as it will go, finally the plastic above the keyboard is usually a seperate piece that simply snaps off. Be very gentle and, if your Sony is setup the way I descirbed, pry the edge of the plastic up. Continue pulling the plastic up until you can lift it away. This should expose the screws that hold the keyboard in. Sometimes there is also a screw below the keyboard that holds the DVD drive in as well. I have not repaired your specific model before, but every Sony laptop that I have repaired uses a method similar to this. Good luck!

Hi, own a Sony Vaio VGN P530H with hardisk Toshiba MK6028GAL damaged. as forced to replace unit, wonder could install a higher capacity? Brand & model if available please!!! thanks to all of you!!!


The VAIO VGN-T350 is a notebook computer designed and distributed by Sony.
The hard drive on your Sony VAIO VGN-T350, which is the unit that stores data, consists of many clusters of data that can be rewritten with new data.
If you are looking for a memory capacity upgrade, or if your old hard drive is having errors, it's time for an upgrade.
Upgrading the hard drive on your Sony VAIO will require the use of a screwdriver and will take you about 30 minutes to complete.

Turn off your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and remove the power cord and any other peripheral components.
Turn over your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and locate the hard drive chamber on the bottom of your laptop. It will be clearly labeled.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the lid in place.
Gently lift the hard drive and its cage away from your laptop and disconnect the data cord.
Remove the four screws located at the corners, and then remove your old hard drive from its cage.
Place your new internal laptop hard drive into the cage and replace the screws.
Connect the data cord to your new hard drive and place your new hard drive into its chamber.
Close the lid and replace the screw to complete the operation.

How to Boot Sony Vaio VGN-S460 Laptop without CD/DVD ROM and With bootable USB


If the BIOS does not have the USB as one of the boot options then you cannot boot up with an USB memory stick.
In this case you need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a new one.
