    Sony Vaio laptop replacement drive - where from anybody?

    I have some 'management purchased' Sony Vaio PCG FX505 laptops with 1yr RTB warranty

    Anyone know where I can get replacement HDD's for them?

    I'm sure Sony would do it but we all know it'd cost more than a brand new one.

    Just go to your fave reseller and buy a 2.5" laptop drive?

    If you take the busted drive out first you may even be lucky enough to find the same model.

    Yeah, any one of your main parts suppliers should source one for you.

    www.aria.net
    www.ebuyer.co.uk
    www.pcwb.com

    etc.

    Shuttup! :P

    Took the thing apart - just 2 screws uncovered the drive under the keyboard - 4 screws secured drive - pulled off - re-seated - booted fine. Drive sounded fine - it has dissapeared a couple of times in the past - so there's possibly something dodgy with the connection - or we're extremely lucky and it nnever was correctly seated from scratch. Thanks for the help [well, most ppl ]

    Just for future reference. The drive is a bog standard 2.5" but screwed into a case with an adaptor. remove the case and you got a standard drive. Put any drive in that case and you will be sorted.
