SOURCE: Operating system not found

I would say either a bad harddrive or bad boot sector. If you are looking for a DIY solution, youll want to test the harddrive by running disk wizard or something similar or pulling the harddrive and putting it in a harddrive enclosure (available from The enclosure will hookup to another computer through usb or firewire and will allow you to backup your files if the harddrive is still good. If the harddrive isnt good, youll get errors while copying the files or it wont allow you to access the harddrive at all. Else, take it to a computer repairman to have them pull the harddrive and run tests on it.

From where i can get real player for mysony

You can't. RealPlayer is not available for your phone's proprietary operating system.

The only phone version currently supplied is "RealPlayer for Mobile Devices" and the only operating systems it works on are Windows Mobile and Nokia 9200 series and Nokia 7650.

Sorry to disappoint you but I hope that you've still found my reply to be of some assistance. If so, please return the favour by rating my answer.
