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.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C473668

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.

SOURCE: sony vaio operating system not found when computer

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.

You might try plugging it back into your computer, and formatting it. If you don't know how to do that, pull up the screen right BEFORE you would open it to copy music to it, right click on the flash drive, and click format. Format it with whatever the default format is shown (probably FAT32) and then copy your music back onto it. If that doesn't work, let me know.

You said you unplugged your copier, did you unplug it for 10 to 15 minutes before plugging it back in, plug it into a differed
outlet that you know works and plug it directly into a wall outlet instead of a power strip. Check to see if your copier reaches stand-by mode then make a test sheet.

If this does not work then you have probably have an internal processing component which requires attention.

It won't show up


Use the exact same USB port that you used to install it.
The installation uses a "virtual USB" port.
You also have to use the same user account on the computer. (Use the same USERNAME as when it was installed).

Also, check to see if the computer DOES see it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
{Disk Management]
Find your Cruzer in the list or on the graph.
Right-click on it and [Explore]
Copy your homework to your computer desktop.

It should work ok, now.

Use another computer to copy the files from the CD over to a USB flash drive, if you have got one. Then start up you Acer and go into the BIOS settings (press F1,F2 or DEL a few times before the windows logo appears) Then go to boot device priority or something similar, and choose the priority to boot from a USB HDD higher than your Hard drive. Just to be sure, put it as number one. Save the settings and exit, and restart your computer with the USB flash drive with the files inside in your computer.
