Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FS742/W Notebook ?

I have a sony Vaio laptop PCG-K33. The touchpad is intermitant. Can I replace it? How do I get inside? Clarence


Answers :

That's a common problem, it's not hard to fix. You'll just have to swap it out. You might be able to find a guide somewhere online but if you just use common sense you should be able to just take the laptop apart and do a swap. Just pay close attention to HOW you got it apart. Ebay is the cheapest place for replacement parts and the K33 is one of the best Sony Laptops ever made btw.
