Question about Sony VAIO GRX550 Notebook

1 Answer

Sony VAIO GRX570 (PCG-GRX570)... the system cannot find the Operating System, when I insert my xp cd, it starts looking for whatever but the screen keeps shutting off. So I connect an external monitor, NOTHING, I have a brand new hard drive,insert it... nothing. The system powers up but the screen won't stay up for too long to finish the OS installation. By the way that vaio has been fixed by sony in CA for the same issues but only lasted 6 months. They ****! Please help

    If they fixed it once before, they should be willing to fix it again.

    Try this before reformatting again.

    Unplug, remove battery. Hold power button down for 10 seconds. Plug back in, boot up.

    For the external monitor thing, you need to press a function key on the laptop; just connecting the cable isn't enough.

How to format the Hard drive without a recovery Disk?


What you are saying is like "how to listen to Bryan Adams' music on your PC without having a PC". You are gonna need atleast a OEM edition of the operating system if you want to re-install. The OEM version costs about 40 bucks on stores like ebay and Amazon.

Boot from the "System Restore" CD-ROM.
One of the "setup" options for XP (or for Vista) is to "format" the entire disk-space, before continuing with the re-install.
