Having problems with your Sony PCG-TR3A Notebook ?

Sony PCG TR3A hard disk is pooched. Can it be fixed with 6oGB?

\015 I can't start the computer and there are horrible noises coming from within, I need to replace the hard disk. I've been told it's not worth it- buy a new one. Can I replace the hard disk with a faster drive? If so, is it worth it? Is it complicated and/or expensive?ThanksAnnie\015

Answers :

All hard drives run at the same speed, if its a sata drive data access is quicker but that is memory relient, you can repace the hard drive but you'd have to shop around for a good deal, i recomend seagate because they have a five year warranty on them, installing them is fairly easy you'll just have to install a brand new operating system as new hard drives come unformatted

No boot My Sony PCG-9RBL boots to the Vaio screen, and fails to go any further. Background: Child forced CD into space above CD dive. In order to remove disk I had to remove the hard disk and remove the screws underneath in order to pull out the optical drive. After replacing the all components, the PC fails to go beyond the Vaio boot screen. There is no sound of the hard disk revving up. I think I may have hurt the hard disk, but am trying to confirm it before I buy another to replace it.
