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

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.
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
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.
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.
of course you can change the display screen alone no problem in that... but am sure sony i think sony service may take a lot of money from you for that.. better try going to any other notebook service shops ..getting less cost...:)
not as far as im aware try removing the 24pin connector from mobo and replacing it then reset the bios jumper by jumping it from norm to reset then turn on pc for a second turn pc off and jump it back power up pc and this should fix issue
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.
