    Unfortunately finding the manuals for Sony computers is a challenge.
    They are virtually nonexistent.

    Look for panels on the underside, maybe something with a stacked
    platter icon. Except I think you'd have found it yourself if that were

    The other place a hard drive often hides is under the palm rest. The
    usual way is to unscrew it from the bottom and then pry it up. CHECK

  3. How so? VAIO service manuals might not be downloadable, and definitely do
    not have the same detail as the ThinkPad ones, but nevertheless most of them
    can be ordered from Sony Parts for 6 or 7 USD.

    Thanks for the spam. I'll make sure I never visit it. But thanks again.
    How much of this goes to the publisher ? Nothing ? Thought so.
