Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I need to install a harddrive into a sony vaio laptop computer( a vgn-nr 220e series) so how do I get to the harddrive?

Answers :

You will want to remove 15 screws from the bottom of the laptop, there are three different lengths so you will want to mark them so you know where to put them back. (if you put a longer screw in the wrong hole you can kill the motherboard) Then lift the bottom cover from the computer. The hard drive is then visible, remove the one screw that holds the hard drive in place and then slide the drive to the right and lift it out. Four more screws hold the hard drive in its bracket remove the drive from the bracket (note how it comes out so you make sure you put it back in the same way) Put everything back in reverse order. Respond to this same post if you have any problems.

The tech said I would find out how if I googled it but I haven't found it. Can anyone help?

They said what? Sounds like,"Come sit beside me for a while, said the Spider to the Fly".They're full of beans. Only if you have a computer that has TWO separate processors, that are in two processor sockets, is this done. ... PC Laptops
