Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

I have a Sony Vaio laptop and I need to replace the keyboard.

\015 I have a hard time opening it. Model number is VGN-FZ140E. I have taken all the screws out but it still won't open. Please help.\015

Answers :

The laptop opens up by prying the two halves of the case apart, but you have to be careful. The bottom of the case has to be pressed inward while inserting a small flat tool (a small screwdriver will work, but can damage the case). If you can picture this: The bottom of the case has some very small tabs that the top of the case snaps over. This is why I say when prying you should be applying the pressure so the bottom of the case is pushed inward with the tool while the top is pushed outward. There are maybe 10 or so of these little tabs around the case. I use a plastic tool that does the job--a cuticle stick that women use to work on their nails works fairly well.

If I've answered your question correctly, be sure to rate the solution, please.
Check if there is any clips around. The opening mechanism may be very simple if its done by clips..but beware of breaking the clips. But if the opening is sealed with some adhesives , then its pretty hard to open it.
