    It is a Samsung SSD I have got on Amazon two or three years ago, now I don´t remember the exact model. Before that, I had another SSD from... OCZ I think, and before that the normal HDD. I am pretty sure that on my model any SATA drive is fine.

    I've done some more digging the SSD card fitted by Sony has a unique connector called uSATA that was only manufactured by Samsung. I've decided to just renew the 500GB hard drive. Everything is now back up and running with WIN7 installed.

    Glad to see that you have solved!
    I guess there may be differences between the AW models, I have been using the old drives taken out from the AW11S on normal desktop PCs and other laptops, so I am pretty sure that I have a standard SATA connector on mine.

    did the 11S have a SSD card fitted from new, when I bought mine you could spec single or twin HDD or single HHD with 120GB SSD which at the time I think was new tech back 2009.

    No, it had only one standard HDD. I added the second connector for the second HDD, then changed the first for a SSD.

    I would like to ask if it's possible or anyone has done it, to replace the HD screen 1650x945 single CCFL lamp screen 18.4" with the FHD dual CCFL screen 1920x1080 by replacing as well the inverter with the dual one. Is it feasible?

    I want to replace my 1680x945 single CCFL lamp screen with 1920x1080 either with two lamps CCFL or LED. Can you share any more info. Tried just to replace the screen with a dual CCFL screen but had minor graphic problems in my desktop area. Did you finally make it work? :) Didn't change the inverter with the dual one just checked it with OEM though. Thanks

    Hello. Sent my current MSI laptop away for RMA service so I pulled out the ancient AW to use while it's gone.

    I noticed it's getting really hot by just idling and I suppose it could use a good clean inside.

    How easy is it to clean the vent and fan? Any guides out there?

    Thanks in advance.
