Never worked on a sony but I do warranty repairs for toshiba laptops and if they are the same or similiar you have to take them completely apart. So unless you are comfortable with all the cables and 20+ screws ( on average ) that have to be removed/disconnected i would recommend taking it to a place experienced in laptop repair....

Unfortunately it varies by make and model. With Toshiba sometimes you remove the screws from the bottom ( once all the extras -hard drive, memory, battery are removed of course. ) and sometimes the screws under the keyboard. Unfortunately without a tear down manual you will have to guess... and remember what/where the screws go!!!! Then you will have to pry the top off ( toshibas snap together besides the screws ) usually the fan is off to the side of the cpu/heatsink so it just lifts out or is screwed down to the case....

Just remember I'm not experienced with sony and it could be more or less complicated and I can/don't guarantee anything.... this is a do at your own risk type of repair....
