Due to dusty environment as in the area u mentioned it happens the lens gets dusty and when it tries to read during that period it doesnt respond to the opening button so the only solution is

open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements

next time if u get into trouble try pressing the eject button for like 5-8 sec it will respond otherwise restart immidiately then it will respond to ur press when the sys is restarting take out the disk and try the cleaning process

pls do rate me if i fixed what u wanted

Sony vaio dvd stuck


If your optical drive is the open kind, just get a pin, look for little hole in the hardware and push it in, this will take out the stuck DVD. If the optical drive is the one that swallows the disk, then you need to take out the hardware.

Sony vaio vgn series laptop - when xp os loading blue screen appears and display the msg hard disk drive not detected.


system not found in my experience generally leads to a damaged or loose hard drive, try to open the cover at the bottom side of the machine, and reseat the hard drive, if it still says system not found, get a 2.5 inch drive case, put your laptop drive in the case and connect it to another machine, if you can access the drive great! save all your files and once complete return the drive to your machine and try to reinstall the OS from a dvd then reinstall your files.. and if still having the same problem replace hard drive thanks.
