I have a Sony Vaio laptop model PCG-F540.
I have taken all the screws out of the flipped over
case and it still doesn't come apart. How do I
get the hard drive out of this thing? Is there a
service manual anywhere on the 'net? Could the
hd be under the keyboard like some? if so, how
do I get the keyboard off?
need to fix this d_mn thing,

It has been a while but I think there is a screw on the left side near the
back that releases the panel above the keyboard. That panel then slides to
the right and lifts off. Be careful of the connecting cable.
You can then see the screws which secure the keyboard. The drive is plainly
visible after you remove the keyboard.
All of the ribbon cables and their connectors are very easily damaged, so be
careful. I think some of the connectors have a little locking piece which
wedges the cable tightly in the connector. Good luck.
