When your laptop starts up enter the BIOS setup and insure that the drive is recognized. If not re-seat the drive and try again. Also, are you sure the drive is compatible with the laptop.

    Right after pushing the power button you should see a startup screen. It will usually tell you to hit delete, F1, escape or another key to enter setup. Sometimes you have to hit escape so that you can see the message. Let me know what you set immediately after pushing the power button.

    If you have the Users Guide for the computer or can find it on the web, look up the instructions for getting into the BIOS or CMOS setup. This happens before any mention of operating system or Windows.

    Also, tell me about the new hard drive you installed.

Can vgn-fw235j support windows xp


Ahmad, The Computer VGN-FW235J does not support Windows XP Operating System as Drivers for the Windows XP are not available.

However, if you want to install the Windows XP Operating System in the Computer then you can install it in the Computer but you have to search a lot to get proper Driver for the Computer.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!
