I have sony vaio vpceh18fa
I tried to repair HDD from a recovery page. It stuck on 45% it says I have problems in some partition and it couldn't fix it. I tried to open my laptop after that. It kept saying there is no operating system. I tried to recover my laptop using the recovery usb. It gave me an error. Error 393. I checked bois . I find under main page of bois. It says hard disk drive : none
So how can I fix that.
Thanks for your help

My best guess is that you need to buy a replacement hard drive.

Good luck

Is there anyway I can get all my data on that HDD ?
and which brand of HDD should I get as a replacement ???
And is it possible to replace it by myself or do I need a technical to do that?

It might be possible to recover some or all of your data. You can buy a USB hard drive inclosure that converts your existing drive to an external USB drive. Then you might be able to copy the data off the old drive.

Any 2.5 inch laptop drive of 500 GB should work. But, you will need the Windows DVD to reinstall Windows. Perhaps you can order a drive from Sony with Windows pre-installed.

Can you do it yourself? It all depends on your abilities.

Good Luck
