    Dear HW_Dude,
    Let me explain the problem with little more details.
    My laptop is a Sony VAIO VGN FS550 model, Bought in 2005 in USA and made in China. It has a Centrino processor with 512 MB RAM and 80 GB HDD. It is fitted with MATSHITA UJ-831Da ROM drive compatible for CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R(SL,DL)/RW, DVD-ROM.There is a different model number given on a sticker placed at the bottom of the notebook PCG-792L.
    The drive is reading all types of discs which already have data. But if I load a blank CD or DVD it does not read, due to which I am unable to burn any discs.
    I have tried to find the driver updates for this drive. Could not find any on the net or on the Sony support website.
    Please help. Regards.

    Is the correct drive model selected in the BIOS ?

My laptop shuts off & tries to restart within a minute after I start it up - could it be the battery or something else? It have some information about the problem pop up but not for long enough for me...

Verify that the fan is spinning, it sound a temperature problem. If the laptop is connected to the charger, it's not a battery related problem.

My laptop has no sound, it doesn't even have a sou...


This will happen if the Audio Driver in the Computer is not installed correctly or if the Driver is missing. You need to re-install the Audio Driver in the Computer to resolve the issue.

You can download the Audio Driver here

Please download the Driver to a folder in the Computer. Then, open the folder where the file is downloaded and double click on it to begin the installation. Please follow the on screen instructions to complete the installation process. After the installation, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

This should fix it..

Good luck!!
