Hi! Not sure which part of the world you live, but have you considered the possibility that the region code on the drive is set incorrectly? If you are in the USA it should be 1, in Eupore 2, etc. Usually, in Device Manager, you are given the option to change the region of the drive. You may only change this one or two times and will be prompted, but it would be a good thing to check before you take the laptop to the repair shop...

Hello. I have Sony Vaio PCG-5426. And I can't reinstall windows on that machine. I have out CD-ROM "II FreeCom" and i try to reinstall with that. In BIOS menu I acces for first boot drive...


you shouldn't need to have to press f9 to boot from cd rom if you have it set in the bios as the first boot device , are you sure the copy of windows on cd that you have is bootable. Try booting from the disc on another laptop or pc and see if you can start it



Another option to try is to boot from a usb drive


instructions on how to do that are here

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=118576

once you have booted to usb you should be able to access the cd rom

depending on what version of windows you are trying to install you will need to run different programs.

you could also install vista or windows 7 to usb drive and install it from that, it is much quicker than installing from cd/dvd you would need to be able to boot from usb to start with though

how to install vista or windows 7 from usb instructions can be found here

My sony vaio laptop model pcg-k33 does not play any type of dvds. would you please let me know how I can fix it? Thank you for you help.


I see its a DVD ROM not writeer so should read DVDs. Maybe the country is not set correctly. Access this by clicking on My Computer / Right click on CD/DVD writer / properties /auto play select mixed content. Also check for country and ensure it is selected correctly.

NB = If you make a mistake in country selection and try to correct it you will write off the DVD drive and render it useless as this procedure re writes the chipset. can only be done once.

Sony Vaio Laptop PCG 9U1M


PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.
