Underneth the lcd with the laptop open is a plastic panel that has no
visible cips or screws. The plastic panel is the same one with the
power button. With a small flat head screwdriver you can pull up the
plastic panel which will reveal one screw to remove the laptop
keyboard. once the keyboard is pulled, a metal grill plate will
cover the inside of the laptop, motherboard, cpu, optical drive, etc.
There are like 6 screws total to pull this plate off. Remove it and
you can get to pretty much anything inside. Note that with minor
differences almost all sony vaio laptops are assembled in a simmilar
fassion. The only real difference as to howto get into them is some
have a screw on the left side to remove that initial plastic panel.
Good luck, its alot easier than it may appear.
