Well you have a few options-
The first I would suggest would be to uninstall the wireless printer. It may or may not work. 
Also, thinking back, have you always been really good with making sure the computer stays flat and has never fallen? Sometimes, when the computer is standing on its side or has taken a fall it can ruin the structure of the computer and can severely affect the cd drive. I once had that problem with my laptop and has to wipe it clean and throw it away because it can range anywhere from $500-$700. Although, considering it's not mac I would think it may cost less considering you have so many more resources.

Hi, if the previous suggestion isn't working you may have a registry error with the upper and lower filter settings.

Go to this link and click the Fix link half way down, if it works yo're done, if it doesn't you may have other issues with the drive but let us know either way.

Dear expert, salute, I got my Sony Vaio laptop today and got a lot of problems. It is VGN-FZ220U Model and it's been used by my brother for a couple of years already. It had Windows Vista Ultimate...


You can download Vista Drivers from sony's website and right click on the setup file go to properties and then select run this program under compability mode. this may help you on your driver issues also make sure that you install the drivers for the correct OS you have installed (32bit or 64bit) On the Webcam issue you have to play around with a couple of drivers since this were not written for win7.

Hope this helps!

I have a sony Vaio VGN_FZ4000, after upgrading to Windows7, it says there is no camara instaled, I went to sony help but all they have are software for the camara no drivers. the camera my laptop have is...


Those 2 software packages offered by Sony on their web site, (a) ArcSoft Magic-i Visual Effects, and
(b) WebCam Companion Software, may just include the driver necessary to get their packages to
work with Win7 - pick one an install it - if the camera works, you got the driver. If the camera still
refuses to work, then all you have to do is de-install the package, install the other one and
give that a try.

The Sony drivers support page (for the Vaio VGN-FZ4000):

DVD drive is not working when i have upgraded mp PC to windows7


This is usually an easy solution. I say usually, because not every hardware company has Win7 drivers (not sure why though). Just go to the maker of your DVD Drive and find the right drivers for your drive (if they have Win7 drivers). I would be able to help more if I knew the maker and model of your DVD Drive.

DVD drive for VGN-FS840W


Not all operating systems are compatible with all peripherals as you have found out. When that happens you have to bite the bullet and purchase a component that will work in the new environment. Sorry.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

I install windows7 on my Vaio vgn-fw145e, but after drivers install i have no cd/dvd rom in mycomputer


I don't know the best solution so I won't give any.

what you did though was probably this: When you installed windows 7 the driver was probably already installed and when you downloaded a driver you used one that was older or incompatible with windows 7. Thats just my guess for what its worth. Could try a system restore to before you downloaded that driver. There are probably other solutions better than reinstalling windows 7. I'll let somebody else comment.
