Different versions of Microsoft Windows comes with different drivers. (I assumed you have a Windows Vista installed on your Sony Notebook). So, since I don't know the brand of your flash, the best thing you can do is let the Windows search for a drive online when the driver notification page comes up, or you can manually go to your flash's brand's web site and search for a driver for your particular Windows version. The best way for installing a new driver to Windows is, simplly install the manually downloaded driver before you plug in your flash, then restart your notebook and try plugging your flash afterwards.

Can you boot from usb on a sony vaio pcg-9s1l


You may need to "Flash" (Update) the Bios. To do this, go online and download the latest Bios update for your machine.

Unzip the downloaded file and place it on an empty Memory stick.

Insert the memory stick and restart your machine. The Bios update should install.

Wait for the process to finish and then see if you now have the option in Bios>Boot Options to Boot from USB.

Try copying the driver files (install and otherwise) to a USB flash stick. Put it into a usb port, turn computer on. You should then be able to access the files throughout the installation.

No bootable device available


Im not sure what you mean by this ...but assuming that you are asking for a solution to reinstall without a cd -rom to boot from ...this can be done with a bootable flash memory stick ..(usb)
the condition is to take a look into the Bios and see if at the boot section ..it has a boot from another device option ...
if it does..just select it as first option ...than get a 4 G flash memory usb stick ...and follow this instructions ...or get someone that made one before to make a bootable stick with the OS on it ....
in case your want another operation system ..there are exactly all steps on google ...just type installing ......from bootable memory usb device
for example here is for Xp...http://www.articlesbase.com/computers-articles/how-to-create-an-xp-bootable-usb-flash-drive-570094.html

Vaio and micro sd


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since you have verified that the card works (in your phone) and that the adapter works (in another computer), then the issue could very well be with the Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B. More specifically, the USB ports/drivers. Presumably that the Sandisk 2Gb Micro SD & the adapter were working before and that you are using Windows Vista, pls check your updates that has anything to do with USB. Alternately, you may want to rollback/downgrade the USB drivers and/or seek USB driver update from the Sony site rather from Microsoft.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for your continued patronage of FixYa.
