SOURCE: how to format sony vaio pcg-4 series

Boot from the "System Restore" CD-ROM.
One of the "setup" options for XP (or for Vista) is to "format" the entire disk-space, before continuing with the re-install.

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.

Have a look in device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc
have a look under imaging systems click on the + sign and see if you have a Camera listed
Also on Sony they should have supplied an application for the camera maybe called ArcSoft WebCam Companion - see if you have that program folder - listed at all

SOURCE: Sony Vaio laptop Auto Switch Off problem

A laptop switching off automatically is an 80% chance that it happened because it overheated. To avoid damage computers turn off immediately, very high temperatures can cause fire or smoke.

I suspect that the ventilation fans of your laptop have either stopped working or have caught up too much dust to work properly. Do you use your it on a carpet or a bed? If yes then you are blocking the ventilation so there is no way your PC will cool itself.

First, check if your PC starts making a lot of noise a while after you turn it on. Put your hands on the vents and check if you feel air blowing out. You should feel warm air coming out. If the air speed feels weak, most probably you will have to get the fans clean; a lot of dust has gone in. If you dont feel any air at all or a very weak flow the fans might have broken and need to be replaced.

Check out this video for info:

Finally, I highly recommend you use a laptop cooling pad. There is a huge variety of those in the market. Depending on where the vents are located there are different types of coolers. I personally use a Antec Laptop Cooler. It helps keep my laptop cool specially when I am gaming. Of course you can for another one of your choice but thats a headstart. Let me know if you need more help.

Need all drivers for 32bit win 7

Looks like lots of people got same problem.
If you are sure you want to go 32 bit, then I sugget go to 'device manager' in control panel - system; then go through each of the items marked as problem and individually look up (search engine not microsoft or Sony) drivers on Internet for them. There are different sites with different drivers for these items in 32 bit.
Drivers DO NOT have to be sony to work. I get these problems all the time. There is ALWAYS a way round it, you just have to look.

First, make sure that the Kodak printer driver is properly installed in your Sony Vaio. Make sure that you can print while the Kodak is directly connected to Sony Vaio.

If you can print directly connected to it, try to reinstall the GPSU21 Utility.

Good luck!
