    Thanks for the answer. However, I'm using Windows 7. When I press the ASSIST button, I never see this Vaio Care Rescue mode screen. When I press the ASSIST or POWER button, the "No Picture" LED turns red. Do you know how I can revert the BIOS version R0400T8 to the previous version.

To access the BIOS with Windows 8/8.1 on a Vaio, press the assist button when fully shut down. You will then be presented with the following screen - press F2 to enter BIOS setup.

My laptop is not starting or boot

BIOS updates have gotten much less risky over time, but things can still go wrong. You need to get your system model number and check the SONY website to ensure that you did in fact install the correct BIOS. This is the most common problem when the BIOS update seems to work, but reboot fails. Some BIOS updates are restricted to certain countries and/or certain sub-models. You may find a procedure that will let you reload the original BIOS and get control of the machine back. If not, you may have what we refer to a "bricked" machine. You can probably send it back for repairs, but they are usually too costly to consider. It may be too late to say this, but I learned a long time ago a good set of rules about BIOS updates:

  1. BIOS updates will not fix hardware problems that pop up - if the old BIOS was working before, the new version won't make things right.
  2. BIOS updates should only be considered if you are upgrading hardware (and in some cases software) and find that the original BIOS does not support it. Ensure that the new one DOES support it before updating.
  3. The golden rule of BIOS updating is.....if the machine ain't broke....don't fix it. A perfectly functional machine will not function more perfectly with different code. The risk isn't worth the some unknown potential benefit.

Can you boot from usb on a sony vaio pcg-9s1l

You may need to "Flash" (Update) the Bios. To do this, go online and download the latest Bios update for your machine.

Unzip the downloaded file and place it on an empty Memory stick.

Insert the memory stick and restart your machine. The Bios update should install.

Wait for the process to finish and then see if you now have the option in Bios>Boot Options to Boot from USB.

How can i boot up from usb when my bios doesnt have usb option in boot menu

You may not see option for USB drive unless you have a USB drive connected when you go into the BIOS.

Otherwise, you will need to attach a floppy drive, and create a boot floppy that then loads drivers and such for the hardware, as well as the interface, and eventually, the drive itself.
