    SOURCE: my sony vaio vgc-js160j has a blue screen,

    When booting press F8,or your button to get to the Screen that has Safe Mode etc on it..then select 'Disable Automatic Restart on System Error'

    Maybe it might be a Memory Fault or a Startup Program causing this BsoD.

    You might then try to run your PC in Safe mode and look for Programs you installed recently.

    Hope this helps

    SOURCE: My Sony Vaio VGC will not read CD/DVD's

    If you have a USB pen drive which is not less than 4GB, then you can easily installed windows 7 with that pendrive.

    Download "WinFlash", here is the link
    http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1364h/winflash2017.zip

    this software will copy all the windows 7 files and make a bootable usb pendrive with windows 7 in it.

    You will install windows 7 from pendrive as you do it with CD-DVD Rom drive.

    Just set your Bios to boot from USB Storage Media.

    On how to use "WinFlash",you can refer to the link below

    My VGC-LT23E makes one log bip followed by 2 bips when I turn the PC on and nothing gets displayed on the screen. I can hear the hard drive but nothing gets displayed?


    This would indicate a video display card problem. Since the VGC-LT23E is an integrated system; this could be difficult to track down without professional intervention.

    Where can I find a motherboard for Sony Vaio VGC-LT23E all-in-one model?


    ~

    If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

    Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

    I have just browsed ebay and nothing there. Keep your eye on ebay as I have seen them for sale second hand.

    I hope this helps.

    I just did it. It's time consuming but not too difficult.
    • Take off the top three screws for the extra hard disk cover.
    • Take off the stand
    • Loosen all the screws around the back case. There a many. The ones on the four corners will not come out and they are vey long and take many turns. You also need to loosen the screw that holds the extra hard disk holder in.
    • Gently pry the case off. There are clips on several places and they will pop loose just be careful not to break them.

    I want to get all sony vaio LT23E sony application


    Some computers come with a built in self restore. If you restart the computer and hold down the f11, or one of the f keys... usually one of them are program to boot the system restore option that will restore it back to its original state when it was new.  However, if you have installed a new operation system, you may have deleted that restore option.  Worth a try though.  
    Hope this helps.  Let me know.

    I have a Sony Vaio 27" flat screen CRT. The reset light in the front is blinking and the power will not stay on


    i think you have a wire loose or either that or the screen has something burnt out. wiggle some of the wires and see if they need tightening. especially the POWER IN, IN-PUT wires.
