HDD replacement not mentioned in any one of the manuals

HDD replacement not mentioned in any one of the manuals

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=VGNNR160EW

and the second link is absolutely incorrect. A Sony VGN-NR160E is not a VGN-s260 nor does it even resemble it.

"I'll guess the video at the link below should give you an idea of the HD location for your computer." If you don't know the answer, please don't guess.

I can explain why and his thread is more than 943 days old.

HDD replacement is not considered user serviceable so they don't put it into the manuals.

If you do have a proper manual link, always add that so folk can check it out.

Once in a while folk will lash out when the makers take such a stance but Sony has classically held fast that such work would be done by "qualified" shops.

We know better and would use youtube, forums and manuals from near enough models to get it done. However I'm bumping into a new breed of users that expect home delivery with fries. I hope you catch my drift here and understand that folk here help as best they can in spite of the maker's stance.

PS. This thread is closed due to old age. Start a new discussion if need be. Also, the links can be wrong after such time. I'm unsure if you know that.

Support docs

Your manuals or disc docs. should contain the areas/locations of main components. I would think its certainly located on the bottom or as a slot side mounted. Either way, the docs will explain the location. If no docs, then visit the Sony support website and get the docs or reviews what's present. Here is a quick link:
