Reboot
on reboot, enter BIOS setup, F1 Esc, whatever the prompts say
and change the boot sequence to a valid drive.
This may not work since you did not say what occurred to __kup the boot sequence

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

I purchased a used vaio vgc-rb43. Upon turning on a message appears stating "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device" What can I do from here?


It probably is a "dead" disk-drive inside the computer.
So, the computer would try to boot from the 3.5-inch diskette drive, or the CD/DVD drive,
if there was "bootable" media inside the device.

So, you need to take the computer to a computer-store, to remove the "dead" disk-drive,
and for them to sell you a "new" and "compatible" disk-drive.

Then, you must re-install Windows (did the seller include a set of "System Restore") CD/DVD disks? Or, can you telephone Sony, and order a replacement set of those disks?

Reboot and select proper boot device


Hi, ull need to check the boot device priority in ur BIOS which is accessable usualy by pressing the delete key at the start of the boot process. If everthing is correct there and yet it doesnt boot from ur hard disk, try changing it to boot from cd and check if it boots. If it does then i think either your hard disk is corrupted or your OS.

Your notebook does not see the proper boot files on your C drive. Many times the boot.ini has been corrupted.
You will need a Windows XP Install CD mounted in the CD Rom. When you boot the system you need to choose the CD as the boot device (if the notebbok does not do it by default) then typr R to enter the recovery console. Once you get the C: prompt you will need to create a new boot.ini file using the bootcfg command. See the following website for details in using the Recovery Console:

Recovery CD not loading onto Hard Drive.


Your optical drive is not reading the disk properly - a common issue as time goes by. Replace drive with a good known working unit and your recovery operation will take place.

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
