\015 How to locate and replace the hard disk drive on my Sony VAIO VGN-NS10L laptop?\015
You have to remove the entire bottom panel (the black section) to get at the hard disk, it is not in a removable tray. You have to remove all 23 screws from the underside of the machine, then the cover simply lifts off. The hard disk is secured by another 2 screws and lifts out with a little pull-tab on the caddy.\015\012I have replaced hard disks on this model, and another similar NS10J model. The whole process takes about 15 minutes.
It will be real silm like and it will be on the side where the cd player is not you may have to unsrew to srews and it should just slide out
