Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RZ30GN2 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My Sony Vaio PCV RZ 30GN2, "C" Drive is full. The "D" Drive is only half full. So, my question is: 1) Are the "C" and "D" drives only logical drives created by a "partition" of a single hard disc w/in the desktop; or, are there two distinct hard discs w/in the desktop? 2) If a single drive is just partitioned, how do I move the partition so that the logical "C" drive has more space?

To check to see if you have one or two hard drives, go to the BIOS, if the BIOS detects one hard drive then your hard drive has two partitions which is the C and D drives.
To create a single partition C drive or make the C driver larger size and the D driver by a equal smaller size then you need a program like Partition Magic.

    Getting into the BIOS varies with different manufacturers.
    Try one of these keys as the computer boots up - F1, F2, ESC, DEL
    On some computers when the computer boots up you may see a brief test screen which may give information on how to get into the BIOS Setup.

After system recovery of my sony Vaio PCV-RS510, I did a Vaio updates and now computer will not boot. None of the buttons or keys working. Displaying "Sony" only.


If you have an install disc boot to it, restart your PC hold down F12 and select the CD/DVD Drive. If it boots to disc, go to the command prompt then run SFC /scannow. This will run the system file checker and repair your files as well.

Bigger hard drive


I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.

Installing standard third-party optical drives in VAIO PCV-650 case


Hi there. I've worked for Sony VAIO and can assure you that the only solution is to get a Sony Branded Spare parts. The parts of Sony VAIO are very specific. As of now I see that the only solution for you is to either contact Sony Service Center or go for an external DVD Drive.
