Put the cd in and restart. If it doesn't give you a message to press "x" to boot from cd, then you need to chage the boot order in the BIOS.

To get into the BIOS, restart and press del or F2 (it might say something on the screen like press del to enter setup) that is the BIOS.

Change the boot order to CD first.

Hello sir, Hi, unless we find a replacement cd drive for your laptop. I don't see how this goes. you see, the laptop you have does not support boot from USB drives, (see setup on the bios first boot, hopefully theres a usb boot option, if not you may opt for a WINME install.) so its useless to use the internal CD rom 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

It is problem with the boot sector. There is a bad sector in the MBR. Whatever you do will not be a solution to remedy this problem. First of all you need to take a test of the primary hard drive. If it passes the test, backup all your data using a linux LIVE CD and then format the whole drive (all partitions) to ntfs using a Vista installer dvd. Re-install XP into the first partition of the drive. This will fix the problem parmanently.
Feel free to contact for any questions further. I am following up.
Have a nice day,
Regards.

Fan is running hot and it makes one side of the computer very hot..laptop computer


That seems to be typical of that model. Oftentimes, it's the battery, microprocessor(s), or a combination of both. There are devices to cool the computer off, or you can use a small fan, that helps. Make sure it's not dirty inside (consult your manual on cleaning, or tech threads on this site). I wouldn't be alarmed, it seems to be typical with this model. Read the second review: http://www99.epinions.com/reviews/Sony_VAIO_PCG_K45_P4_538_3_2GHz_1MB_L2_533MHz_FSB_512MB_80GB_DVD_CDRW_56K_NIC_802_11bg_15_4_WXGA_XB_XP_PC_Notebook Good luck.
