Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
I guess you tried restarting the computer a couple times. You didn't accidently send the "C" drive to the flash drive? Have you tried putting the flash drive back in (if it hasn't been changed) and tried booting?

Please remove the Battery from the Battery bay and disconnect the AC Adaptor from the Notebook. Then, clean the metal contact in the Battery Bay and leave the Battery removed for half an hour. Next, connect the AC Adaptor to the Notebook and the power cable to a functional wall outlet and try to turn ON the Notebook. If the power LED on the Notebook doesn't glow then again disconnect the AC Adaptor and try removing and reinserting the RAM module. If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service will be required.
However, if the Notebook turns on after performing the above mentioned steps but the Battery is not detected then perform C: Drive Restore using the VAIO Recovery Center.
As per the specification published online, the Computer model VGN-N250E is preinstalled with the VAIO Recovery Center in the hidden partition of the Computer. You may use it to perform C: Drive Restore to restore the Computer to the original factory settings. Please make sure that the new Battery is installed in the Computer while performing the Complete System Restore.
Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive only and will reinstall the pre-installed Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers supplied with the Computer.
Please restart the Computer and keep on tapping the F10 key to access the VAIO Recovery Center. Next press the Enter key then select the "VAIO Recovery Center" option then follow the steps given in the link mentioned below to proceed with the C: Drive Restore.
In the link given above, please click on the sublink "Restore C: Drive" to view further information on performing the C: Drive Restore.
Performing all the steps successfully should resolve the issue.

You can try running the installation/recovery disc that came with the computer or the built-in recovery system (if it has one) to try and repair the windows installation. The problem is if the computer is saying that the operating system is not found then critical files got deleted from something like a virus or the hard disc drive has stopped working. You may have to do a format and re-install of the windows OS.

Unfortunately it sounds as if the hard drive is clicking and not detecting because it has failed. At this point you will need to locate the operating system media for your system and purchase a new hard drive and start from scratch.
