Probably the hard drive is dead. Did you drop it recently? Anyway, it could be just the connector, if your good with hardware you could open it and check. I would suggest you to use the warranty though.

Sony vaio pcv-w510g. CMOS checksum error - defaults loaded hardware monitor found an error. Enter power setup menu for details. Also, power button must be depressed...


It sounds like the CMOS battery may be dead. It's a small watch battery inside the computer that maintains your time and date settings even when the computer is turned off and not connected to power. They die after 3-5 years and need to be replaced. They are usually a standard 2032 watch battery that you can get at Radio Shack for $5. The bad news is that the computer will need to be opened up to change it. If you are not comfortable doing that, I'd recommend finding a local technician or shop to do it for you. They can be found pretty easily using google maps or craigslist

Computer continiously ask for reboot


DFirst thing to do is to UNdo everything you have just done: Memory Upgrade and CPU Cooler. If normal operation returns, try the upgrades, one at a time, to narrow down the source of the problem. I suspect the memory, as a DIMM chip not correctly set up will cause this problem. Let me know what it does, please? jaye.ellen@gmail.com

Hardware monitor found an error


First I would make sure all the power plugs are properly plugged into the motherboard and all other devices.

If that does not solve it then I would get the Power supply tested at a local PC shop. Or just get a new decent power supply. Looks like the Power supply without a doubt is defective.

SYSTEM ERROR


1) if you have nothing in a USB port you will need to set bios
Try removing M/board battery for 2 to 3 hours some people say less then replace it most times it should set BIOS back to default
also check setup of hard disks master slave etc

Last resort with 15 seconds you should be able to see
press ?? key to access BIOS next boot keep pressing key see if that works

Hi Banyar, lets check the main menu & the boot order in you're bios. Start up the PC, as soon as you see any display on the monitor press the delete key every 2 seconds until the bios main menu loads. This is also where you can see the time & date. List on the left is;
Primary IDE Master
Primary IDE Slave
Secondary IDE Master
Secondary IDE Slave

Across from these on the right is the matching device. If you have one hard drive the bios will show its model number on the right.
Ex: ST150322A. (You're drive will be different). If you have more than one hard drive the second drive, (Should be listed as Primary IDE Slave). CD-ROM drives would be listed as, Secondary IDE Master & Secondary IDE Slave. Write down the model name of the Primary IDE Master on paper. Now go to the title, "Boot" in the bios. Use you're manual & go to page 2-25. High-light, Boot Device Priority & press enter. Set the order as shown in the manual. Make sure the 3rd boot device is set to the correct hard drive listed from the main menu. The model you wrote down. Once set save & exit the bios. The PC will restart. You should no longer receive the error message & windows should boot normally. If windows does not load normally than it is possible that the Primary IDE master drive is not the drive with windows installed on it. You must find the correct drive with windows loaded on it. Connect that drive to the Primary IDE master port.
You may need to reset the drive’s pin settings so it is seen as the primary drive.
Than change the 3rd device in the bios boot priority list with the correct drive. Windows demands that the operating system be located on the, Primary IDE master port. Please read pages 2-12 & the top of 2-13 in you're manual.

Good Luck!
