I need to replace a HDD in this laptop. Other number listed on the bottom of the case is PCG 7113L. A search of both of these numbers has yielded little in the way of actual disassembly instructions. If any one could point me to a manual or has any personal experience with this laptop I would appreciate very much if you would pass it on to me.
Thanks very much.

Louis thank you very much for your time and trouble but I'm afraid that all Sony gives you are some instructions on replacing RAM.
Thanks again.
LG :thumbsup:

I have since been able to access the HDD in this computer. I turned the laptop over and removed every screw on the bottom. I made a map and placed each screw on the map as I discovered that some of the screws were different. The HDD was hiding down in the lower right corner in it's caddy. There was one last screw holding in the USB ports I removed that and flipped up the ports being extremely careful of the wires. The HDD then slid out and up. This is an SATA drive and there were no cables or ribbons. I removed the HDD from it's caddy via 4 very small screws and now I'm just waiting for the new HDD to get here. I think that's going to be the hard part, getting this up and running again. I have disks for this laptop but if they don't work then I would guess that a copy of XP home and the valid key on the bottom of the laptop will get it going. Then I'll just have to go on a driver hunt.

made a mistake the darn thing is running Vista (cringe) Home Premium. If I'd known that from the get go I would have refused to work on it.
