Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N220E/W Notebook ?

How do i remove the hard drive? - Sony VAIO VGN-N220E/W Notebook


Answers :

Had the same issue, couldn't find a solution on-line, but I figured it out. First remove the battery and the screws underneath it. Then remove all the screws on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the optical device and remove the 2 or 3 screws holding the bezel to the base.

\015\012Here's where it gets tricky. There is one more screw under the keyboard, right where the F6 key is. Can't get to it until you remove the keyboard, but there is no obvious way to remove the keyboard.
\015\012
\015\012Pry the case apart a bit and look inside, there are two plastic release cllips that hold the keyboard in. Very carefully retract these clips and remove the keyboard. Then you'll see that last screw. Take it out and you can slide the top bezel out of the way without removing the touchpad cable.

\015\012Replace the hard drive and put it all back together.

Greetings; I don't know if there's a more difficult Manufacturer to deal with than Sony when it comes to a Service Manual. I've looked for a manual for you at 9manuals.com and User-Manuals.com and it's a "no go". I have accounts at both places (I'm a laptop repair/rebuilder). If you contact Sony, you can purchase one for your laptop, but they will not allow you (or anyone) to download it. They send it to you. I would not recommend going further with a VAIO without the manual.
