I want to disassemble my laptop to undust the inside. It can shutdown at random, and then needs to cool down after that, otherwise it repeats the shutdown (just after power on). I think a check of the heat sink is needed.

that sounds reasonable, What exactly is the problem though, can you not find all the screws to open it up. If you can, try it with another powersuppy and battery. old memory chips may also be usefull

if you can't find all the screws, look under any rubber feet, stickers, and the serial plate too (although i am sure that you know that opening it voids any warranty or service plan that you may have on it).

I don't have an answer, but I'd really like one. I'm trying to do the same thing - disassemble a PCG-9C1L (AKA PCG-NVR23).

I have removed 13 screws from the base, 1 from the floppy drive bay & both the flip-up feet. I have felt the serial # sticker & MS WinXP licence sticker - can't feel any screw underneath. I have removed the 2 rubber feet. The front edge of the NB gapes but it is fixed somewhere in the centre/rear.

It is not apparent what else can be removed. I've pulled RAM, FD, HD, battery & modem. There's nothing left removable!

Next stop, the screen, but it has a broken hinge... It's fragile...

Thankyou, purpleurple!

In fact, a friend more experienced with Vaios than I finished the job - the strip above the keyboard, housing the speakers, needs to be slid or prised off somehow to finish the strip down. However, the owner still needs a new screen casing, so I shall forward this on to her. Thanks!
