    My Vaio has four screws on the back that have to come out. Once those are removed the cover is slid backwards about 1/2 inch to disengage the tabs from the slots in the base. It then lifts off.

    What is the model number of your Vaio?

    You have to pull out the release tab on the back:

    Probably a 'TV Tuner card' or 'Video capture device'
