Hi,

With hundreds of operating system installs under my belt, I have yet to encounter a modern computer (under ten years old) that I couldn't install XP with sp2 onto. Is there any reason why you are concerned? As long as you have enough hard drive space and enough ram you should be fine. What you must remember is that you need to install the Sony drivers for your computer after the install of XP. Sony has a great support site, and if you do not have them on disk, they are easy to download from their site. They even have a tool that will scan your computer and provide you with a list of the drivers you need for your particular model. Just go to this page (copy the link into your browser's address bar if this link isn't active): http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DRIVER&SR=nav:service_support:electronics:drivers_software:esup&ref=http%3A//www.sony.com/index.php

Just enter the model number and get yoru drivers. I would do this before you do your fresh install of XP. Of course, you will need to save the drivers on something other than your hard drive. It sounds like an obvious thing to do, but I just want to be thorough. OK then. Take care.

No sound coming on my laptop VGN-CR220E


Please first check whether the Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 is installed in the Computer and what is the version of the BIOS installed in the Computer.

To check the information about the Service Pack installed:

Click on Start, type WINVER in the Search area and then press the Enter key.

Or

Please goto Start Menu, select 'All programs', select 'Accessories' to access 'Run' option and enter 'WINVER' and check whether Windows Vista SP1 or 2 is installed in the Computer.


To check the version of the BIOS installed in the Computer:

Click on Start, type MSINFO32 in the Search area and then press the Enter key.

In the System Information window check the BIOS version.

If the installed BIOS version is not R1121Q0 or higher then install the BIOS update in the Computer from this Link.

This is a known issue with a VGN-CR series Computer when Audio may not work properly after installing Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Installing the BIOS update should resolve the issue.

If the issue still persists after installing the BIOS update then you may try installing the Audio Driver from this Link.

NOTE: Please first go for the BIOS update as it is a well known issue with a VGN-CR series Computers.




Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How I can get recovery disc for my laptop Sony Vaio VGN-SR 26GL?


You probably need a recovery disk because you dont have the necessary drivers and the software that came pre-installed on your laptop. but instead of worrying about that, why not just get any operating system disk of your choice, install it, download the drivers for your laptop online and install them too, and interestingly you can also keep all the drivers you downloaded with the OS Disk incase of future necessity for your laptop repairs.
In case your decide to do this, the link to download the drivers for your laptop is :

Happy Installation!...lol
