Sony Vaio - refit with Samsung SSD?

  uranusrising 15:19 22 Aug 2014

Hi all, does anyone know if a Sony Vaio can be fitted with a Samsung 500 GB SSD? I have a Sony VPCF1, it's a couple of years old and I am starting to get the black start-up screen strongly advising me to check my hard drive. So . . . I would like to replace the existing drive with a new Samsung.

Any advice would be welcome.

No reason why not

you will have to clone your old drive across to the new SSD see here

Thanks for that Fruit Bat, I will read up on what you have linked me and maybe try it myself.
