Question about Sony PCG-TR3A Notebook

1 Answer

Need bios not just the update,

I recieved a pcg-tr3a sony laptop, i formatted hardrive using my xp cd from my dell pc then i went to sony website and put all of the drivers and software onto a flash drive and then installed it onto this computer, i have not been able to use some of the software because they are just upgrades for example the DVgate is an update when i try and install it it asks for the actuall program to be installed, same with the bios update i need the original bios software i have searched the interent and have yet to find it except for the bios update which will not install, and i am using the computer now works great except i get error messages about the bios, i called sony they just want me to buy a new computer so i gave up on them well apprecciate anything to try and solve this small problem

Sony Vaio PCG-TR3A, Blue Screen states cannot find operating syst


There should be a factory image on the HD when you try restarting it. Hold down the F8 key or F10 key while its rebooting this should start the recovery process you shouldnt need a windows disk.

Hi,

When you formatted the hard disk of the laptop, the appropriate drivers were also erased. It is therefore necessary to reinstall the drivers and specifically for your concern, the VGA Display. Pls click here to view available downloads for the Sony PCG-TR3A. You would be particularly interested with the Intel Graphics Controller Driver.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
