Sony All in one desktop Clicking/Screen doesnt illuminate etc

I have a Sony All in one desktop Model # VGC-LS1
Been using it for a few years

The computer started giving me the following error when started "Missing operating System" along with Clciking from the hard drive

I then checked the bios and it didnt recognize the hard drive..i restarted the pc a few times and it eventually boots without any problems.

Finally today i took the pc apart , i made sure not to fry anything and when i restarted the pc..i still hear the clicking but the monitor doesnt illuminate now...could it be that something isnt grounded etc inside?

Because it does this a few times and then boots the day may some when it wont give you even one chance. Try Doing full system restore after backing up your personal stored data.Dont waste any time Your boot sector has a problem maybe from a virus, and I have heard some viruses act slowly so you will eventually crash

Clicking noise


the 'clicking' sound might be a defective hard drive, which also explains some of those other issues.seems that perhaps a local computer tech can easily identify that, and then you may need to do a hard drive recovery exercise to recover hard data.

HDD making clicking noise/will not boot into windows


do you see anything when you press the on button?
if not, it might be the motherboard, which means the most important part of the computer is broken and it has to be replaced (the motherboard that is, but i warn you, OEM versions of windows might not work anymore) if you see something until windows should start just replace the harddrive

My Sony VAIO VGC-LV240J/S desktop monitor does not turn on. All the lights turn on but not the screen. The "HDMI" light does not turn off either. Help please. I only had it a few months before...


I encountered this problem with my HP laptop I brought it to the HP repair center because it is under warranty and then they replaced the LCD monitor - it worked, please contact your Hardware IT Technician.

VGC-V617G model Can't fix aspect/ratio on monitor. There is a one inch stripe on both sides.


using the menu button on your monitor, find the icon that indicates an arrow pointing left and right. increase the value until the image reaches the egde of the screen. if this doesnt cure your problem, you may need to adjust your screen resolution in the display feature located in your control panel to 1024x768 . this setting should fit most any flat panel monitor screen size. if its not what you like, you can choose from the multiple options to find the resolution that best fits your preference. be sure to hit the apply button when you are satisfied with your selection.

CPU Fan Doesn't Spin


First time that I had heard of a Sony Vaio VGC-LS1, so I had to go take a look. Pretty Cool!

I can only tell what I think from a tech standpoint of view on it's processor fan.

1.This computer is housed in a housing that incorporates the LCD screen also. It's set up just like a laptop, except the LCD screen is in the body. (Housing)

This means you not only have the heat of the processor when it's running, you also have the heat of the LCD screen.
Plus it's all packed into one tight 'box'.

Processors give off a lot of heat by themselves. If they aren't kept to a certain thermal limit, they will burn up. Literally! Like ON FIRE!

When a processor goes beyond that thermal limit, there is a built-in Fail Safe feature that turns the processor off.

In ANY computer I've seen, or worked on, the processor fan is constantly spinning. As the load for the processor increases, so does the heat given out by the processor, and the fan spins faster.

It is my contention that you have a bad processor fan. I would at least ask a tech in your area, and see if this is so.
If your computer is turning off on you while you are using it,
you have a bad processor fan.
