Question about Sony VAIO PC Desktop

Computer reboots when I plug in printer

My viao pcv 9911 just came back from service where they made repairs, erased my hard drive and reloaded windows xp. Now when I plug in my Samsung CLP-510 printer the computer automatically reboots and continues to reboot. I have unpluged all other devices and it still does the same. I have tried the printer on other computers and there is no problem. There are no printer drivers installed.

I would suggest to contact the repair person / company and get it looked at.

I personally when I do repairs to a computer if the client finds a new problem after the repairs I look into it / repair it for free. Hopefully the other person will do the same.

Hello

OK, at the link below you will be able to get step by step instruction on how to load windows from a USB device.

Click HERE.

As for the CD/DVD rom, you will just be able to plug it in, no additional drivers will have to be loaded.

Kind regards

System restore isnt restoring and rebooting into safe mode after


viruses often plant themselves firmly in the system restore files. They could also be preventing you from executing it. If you have "rogue programs" a system restore almost never works. You need to either clean the rogue programs in safe mode or backup your files and reinstall from scratch.

Computer did not bootup after adding 2nd harddrive


Did you connect the drive to cable spot closest to the motherboard on the primary IDE channel? is it formatted? Did you try the drive on the Second IDE channel? Can your system support a 160 GIG drive?(if not try partitioning the drive.). Is the power and data cable connected properly?(the red line on the data cable should be closest to the power plug on the drive.)

OK I MEANT THE MACHINE IS NOT BOOTING BUT INSTEAD ITS SHOWING AN ACTIVE HYPHEN ON THE SCREEN. IT CANT EVEN BOOT OR READ OS FROM A CD.


Go into your bios settings and apply "Bios defaults",
Be sure the boot order is set to
1. CD/DVD
2. Hard Disk Drive
then save and reboot.
If the system boot, scan your drive with a good anti-virus.
If not, insert your Windows installation disk and reboot, press space if prompt to do so to boot on the CD. Reinstall Windows.
If it does not work, boot with a dos diskette, with fdisk.exe, delete all your partitions. Reinstall Windows.

Lets try this, Seprate you hardrive if you can (use this link for a step by step advice : http://laptoplogic.com/resources/detail.php?id=43). Once you have the hard drive seprated test it using a USB connector (or get it tested). If your hard drive works fine then just re-assebling it into the machine should work, else my friend we need to get the hard drive replaced for good.
