Fixing my Sony
By terryh on Oct 27, 2005
This evening's fun and excitement was fixing my Sony Z1 notebook. I had to put a new hard drive in, as the old one just upped and died. In my experience, Sony notebooks are stylish to look at, but hard to work on. There were several hairy moments during the disassembly and reassembly, and I would never have got it done without ombrenoire.com's help. I'm not hugely fluent in French, although I seemed to make a better job of it than Babelfish. But the pictures are 90% of the battle here.
I'm currently reinstalling system software, so I'm not completely sure that everything is working. But at least it sees the new hard drive and the mouse and keyboard, so it hasn't been turned into a paperweight.
