You are in deep doo doo. Since most ladies are neat, I am sure that your restore disks are in prime condition and replacing them with a new set from Sony will be expensive and not do the trick. Either something is terribly corrupt with the software on the drive or there could possibly be something wrong with the hard drive that prevents it to restore or reload. If you have a spare, known working, hard drive kicking around try using the restore disks with that and see if it works. I caution you that many restore softwares are designed to only work with the original, same size hard drive (that sucks for obvious reasons). If it works you definitely have a HD issue. If it does not, you might still have a hard drive issue because the software was not designed to restore a different hard drive. So then you have to do a diagnostics test on your drive to check it out. If the drive proves to be bogus you can replace it with the exact same model and hope that the software does the trick. If not you will have to do a clean install of the OS and all of your programs.

check whether your SMPS fan is running the back side of the cabinetand also the cpu fan if you can open the system case. if the both fan is running fine then rmove the CMOS battery and start the computer after 2 or 3 sec the cpu fan will stop that means BIOS is cleared reinsert the battery and boot the system go to BIOS and go to load default setting and enter(press DEL or f2 to enter BIOS) after that press f8 and go to safe mode (not work with win98)it will take some time,after getting in to the OS scan your computer for virus with best and latest updated ANTI VIRUS. let me know whether it is working ot not. if not working kindly let me know what the exact problem is write all the process you follow to start your PC reply me soon

SOURCE: CD/DVD ENCLOSURE in Sony Vaio PCV RX860

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=269&mdl=PCVRX860
this link is a tutorial of how to get the side panel off,
to get the cd drive out, you need to do a couple more steps.

first, you will need to take off the top and other side panels. this can be done by looking at the top back of the case. there are two clips that hold the top panel on. push up on the two clips and the top part will slide back and you can pull up on the panel and it should come off.

Next, you should be able to push some more clips on the top to get the side panel off. it should fold down just like the first side.

then, you need to take off the front two panels. the bottom part should be just a couple clips on the inside front of the case, and the top clips will be revealed when you take off the bottom part.

after that is done, you should be able to unscrew the cd/dvd drive from the case and unplug the cables connected to it from the top where you removed the top panel.

then you should be done

SOURCE: cpu fan control wont stop running

I had the same problem. Luckily, I found the "Sony Fan Control Driver" here:

Runs nice and quiet now!

SOURCE: no sound on sony vaio desktop pcv rs 420

This is eSupport.Sony.com, and the page for the Sony Vaio PCV-RS420,
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVRS420
Click on the + sign next to -> Audio (Sound) 1 files

You will now see ->
Original-ADI SoundMAX Audio Device Driver, Version 5.12.1.3622 for the Microsoft Windows Operating System <- in blue.
There is a globe with a green arrow to the right of this. Click on this globe/arrow icon.

You will be taken to another window. There is a globe/arrow icon, once more. Click on it.
Now follow the instructions.
Should a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' pop-up, ignore it. "Warning. This software does not have a digital certificate ya-da, ya-da"

It's from Sony, and I assure you it's safe.
Click on Run, and in the next small window, click on Run again. If you have problems, I suggest you come back and post an additional comment. We'll get it straightened out.

I suggest the Windows update may not be a good thing. Windows has thousands of generic drivers.
The key word here is "Generic"
They are not THE drivers made by Sony for THIS laptop. I suggest using THE drivers.

Sony actually has that feature within that system. Go to Recovery discs / Recovery Media Kit (RMK) links. There are 2 options.

Need help clearing the garbage slowing my CPU w/o losing my files


Just copy any wanted documents (pictures, music, videos, etc.) onto your external hdd. As far as Norton or any other programs, you will need to reinstall these after the restore.
After you reinstall the os just copy your things from the external hdd to the appropriate folders.

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up


one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT
