I'm not sure if I can do that on my laptop. Will BIOS complain? Will there be overheating issues? I have SONY VAIO VPCEF44FX Thanks.

Hi user1078719. I think this question is currently a bit too localised. However if you want to know if it is generally possible to replace a HDD with an SSD then the answer is almost always yes. And a SSD usually produces less heat. – Hennes Feb 2 '13 at 23:40
You can replace your HDD with SSD, certainly. Not sure what you mean by upgrade. What do you want to know about the upgrade process? That would make it a more answerable question. – Marcus Chan Feb 3 '13 at 1:01
Upgrade means replace with a better version. – user1078719 Feb 3 '13 at 1:02
I don't think the question is too localized when it comes to replacing HDDs with SDDs, they are basically compatible. However, there are other issues to deal with in case you ghost a HDD to a SDD, which is already discussed in many other threads. – TFM Feb 3 '13 at 13:52
