Replacing Hard Drive in a Sony VAIO SZ330P/B

I need to know how I open up my Sony VAIO SZ330P/B so I can replace my hard drive. I'm pretty sure I'll need to remove the keyboard but I don't know how to do that on this Sony. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    @TampaNative: Thanks for your idea but it's no good. I had already looked for an access door on the bottom. Nothing for the hard drive, only the memory and cmos battery. When the laptop is on and I am accessing the hard drive, I can hear it under the keyboard, sort of in the top left area which is why I am thinking I need to remove the keyboard.

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.

How to remove the keyboard?


Remove all of the screws on the bottom, as well as the RAM, hard drive, and CD/DVD drive. Then, while the laptop is open, lift up the upper plastic covering on the bottom (you might need a key to get in there) from here, you should be able to see the keyboard mounting screws, make sure you remove the keyboard cable from the motherboard as you remove the keyboard.

Replace hard drive on sony laptop vgn-sz330p


Most hard drives are easy to get at, not on this model tho. If you follow this link. At the top of the screen click on next for each of the stages or use the drop down menu. Site was a bit sluggish when I went on to check so be patient with it.

Malfunctioning keyboard Sony Vaio PCG K415S


Ebay or somewhere similar is your best bet for getting a 'used' and therefore much cheaper replacement. Just type in the make/model of your machine..

Most Keyboards are pretty easy to replace and if your not sure how to do it, run a search on the web or post on here with your specific model etc. If its put together anything like my Sony all you have to do is remove a bit of trim above the keyboard (carefully) and there are 4/6 screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these and the keyboard just slides out. Then it's just a matter of disconnecting the ribbon and reversing the order to put it all back together.

Good luck, J
