    Thanks so much for doing this. I spent hours trying to find guides to disassembly my vaio. It would have been impossible without your guide.
    Again, Thanks!!!

    I have successfully disassembly a VAIO VGN-FW290 flawlessly.

    I wanted it open because my power cable connector was loose, probably because of an unwanted hit (that cracked the magnesium alloy support). Because I was on a hurry I couldn't make a picture guide. And because I used it on a daily basis I can't afford dissasembling it to make a step by step guide.

    If anyone want some advice or is stucked somewhere I wouldn't mind helping.

    But if you have patience you will probably figure out for yourself, there are no tricks or hidden screws. It's just reverse engineering for the assembly process.

    Can I ask some quick question about how to remove heatsink from my Vaio SZ series please?

    As you can see in the picture, I can't remove that screw. I tried to apply more force on it, but it just wouldn't budge. I think the other screw underneath that one requires the same screwdriver's size right?? I can remove that one relatively easy, but not the other one

    Any help right now would be appreciate :)
