Introducción

There are several signs including sluggish response, freezing, overheating, and even audible clicking or whirring noises from your computer that indicate your hard drive might be on the cusp of failure. Hard drives store data, operating systems, and your applications; so you will want to replace that hard drive before it is completely worn out. An earlier replacement will ensure more, if not all, your data is saved.

The good news is you can uninstall a hard drive out of a Sony VAIO VPC-EB33FM laptop safely and efficiently by following this guide, with no special skills required! You just need your hands and a Phillips #00 screwdriver to complete this task.

However, before you uninstall your failing hard drive, you will want to make sure you have backed up any data you would like to save. This includes (but is not limited to), documents, files, music, and photos. Also, have your new hard drive readily available to make this transition as smooth as possible. When you have covered these initial steps, you are ready to begin!
