My Sony Vaio FZ4000 does not turn on after a bad bios update


Hi,

Unfortunately, if a VAIO is not turning up after a failed BIOS update, the only option is to flash the original BIOS. This is only done at Sony service center.

You need to contact a Sony service center near your area. it get the BIOS flashed.

Thanks!!!!

How can I start the laptop up from the CD Sony PCG-FRV25


when you start the computer press on F2 to take you to the setup page, then move to the boot sequence and move the CD to be the first so the computer will read the CD once the computer starts. I hope this solution has been helpful.

Sony Vaio PCG-FRV25 Cooling Fan Issue?


I was going to suggest overheating before I read your own diagnosis; Yes, sound like the fan, but you can check by opening up and watching it. Or install temperature monitoring software such as Speefan;
If it is the fan it may well be that there is only one possible replacement - officially. But it is usually possible to cannibalize something cheaper to suit your purpose!
