Go to Windows Updates and see if there is an update their sometimes that happens with drivers. Start there Updates and install all the updates hardware updates as well. If that does not assist you there may be a fix at the Sony Vaio support drivers and download for your driver start there. I would download the driver online for the wireless software.

I have a five year old Sony VAIO VCG RB42G desk top computer. It does not boot, instead I get a boot message (in DOS?) telling me to reboot or insert reboot media. I tried to insert recovery dvd, but dvd...


If you are not able to get the disc tray to open itself, you can manually open it before starting the computer by pressing a paperclip into the tiny hole on the front. This manually releases the tray. Then start it up, and try to enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2. In the BIOS setup, make sure that the bootup priority is set to the CDROM drive. Restart, and hope for the best! :)

Cd drive is not recongonised with qsi cdrw/dvd sbw242c -Vaio lap top PCG-k33-model PCG-9s1l


if its the original drive that came with the laptop ...just reinstall the operation system ...and this will fix the problem ...if will continue to do that ...it means that its something wrong with the device and need to be replaced..
you can also go to bios and restore factory defaults by presing F9 or choosing the optimal defaults from the menu ...after that just save changes and reboot ...this in case the problem is from there ...cause there are cases when the drive may be deactivated from bios..

CD/DVD ENCLOSURE in Sony Vaio PCV RX860


http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=269&mdl=PCVRX860
this link is a tutorial of how to get the side panel off,
to get the cd drive out, you need to do a couple more steps.

first, you will need to take off the top and other side panels. this can be done by looking at the top back of the case. there are two clips that hold the top panel on. push up on the two clips and the top part will slide back and you can pull up on the panel and it should come off.

Next, you should be able to push some more clips on the top to get the side panel off. it should fold down just like the first side.

then, you need to take off the front two panels. the bottom part should be just a couple clips on the inside front of the case, and the top clips will be revealed when you take off the bottom part.

after that is done, you should be able to unscrew the cd/dvd drive from the case and unplug the cables connected to it from the top where you removed the top panel.

then you should be done

Hi there. I've worked for Sony VAIO and can assure you that the only solution is to get a Sony Branded Spare parts. The parts of Sony VAIO are very specific. As of now I see that the only solution for you is to either contact Sony Service Center or go for an external DVD Drive.
