Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the Hard Drive.
As you have mentioned that the Notebook was dropped, this might have caused a Physical damage to the Hard Drive.
Hence, the Computer might not be detecting the Hard Drive.
As the issue might be Hardware related, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Sony Authorized Service Center.
Before sending the Unit to the Service Center, you may try resetting the BIOS to its default values.
Performing the BIOS reset should resolve the issue.
If the issue still persists even after performing the BIOS reset, then you may get the examined at the Sony Service Center.

It could be possible if the hard drive isnt too far gone, are you able to use it at all? have you tried to hook it up to a different laptop and see if you can access it from that? You'll probably be better off getting a list of anything that you can re-download and storing the irreplaceable stuff such as sensitive documents onto a disk. If you can do this then just reformat the hard disk and get it over with. You stand to be in for quite a headache trying to copy all your files off your hard disk and making sure all the files arent corrupted. This stands especially true if your hard disk has malware or a virus.

HP Compac NX5000 wont load XP Home on new hard drive


This situation leads me to believe that the CD or DVD drive is faulty,,or the install disc you are using is scratched or dirty.
Try cleaning the disc and begin again.
Another option is to take the hard drive out and using a 2.5 to 3.5 inch HD adapter ,,plug into a desktop PC as a slave.
And copy your WinXp cd onto a partition on your laptop HD.
Then using a Win98Se floppy boot disc you can access the winXP and install from there.

SONY VAIO PCG-7G1M Wont boot


First you understand yourself is that after the windows logo screen apperars and its get restart means there is some changes or malfunction happened to your hardware - Although you changed your hard disk will not solve your problem. Please clarify as follows

1) did you load you operating system to this hard disk by any other computer help - if you load it with the same system try to reinstall the system.

If the problem existing 100% your motherboard is partially damage I think the uniprocessor side voltage variation is happening while you press keyboard some charge (voltage) you are supplying to the motherboard, sometimes some key pulse is more than 5 volt so that pulse support to get moved some points

First check your windows try to reinstall agian - I predict that you got this hard disk installed through some other laptop so the hardware configuration is different.

Thanks Hothawk

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
