Question about Sony VAIO FRV25 Notebook

1 Answer

My sister's pcg-frv25 has a VERY weird problem. First off, I should note that it was plugged in when I checked this the first time. You turn it on, it does the 'vaio' thing, and then it comes up with all the information on the pc (processor type and a few other things), asking if you want to continue with the boot (f1) or do something else (f2)(I didn't get a good look at the 2nd one, I just hit f1). It then said that windows failed to start, so I was going to go do the 'last best known config' when suddenly the screen dies and the fan starts going crazy. Thinking I could get the problem to do itself again, I turn it off and turn it back on. I was wrong. The screan stayed dead and the fan started to go crazy again Humoring myself, I unplug the laptop and try it again. Bust. Right now, it's plugged in and charging, bit I still get a dead screen and a crazy fan. I'm wondering if there's a CPU or memory problem...or if it's something else entirely. Thanks.

    If it is a hard drive problem, we're in trouble, because I've been trying to just get the 'vaio' part of things to show up on the screen, and it won't show up....and we're still getting the crazy fan.

    I an PRAYING that the hard drive did not crash on me...otherwise my sister is going to seriously hurt me...

You might be having hard drive problems, press f2 and make sure the hard drive is showing up ok. if it is then press f8 when booting select safe mode. if it comes up fully then go to the start menu, help and support and select system restore. select a date 1 week prior to the problem.

Where is the best place to get a new hard drive for a sony vaio pcg-frv25? I need a ide pata hard drive.


You're on the right track--it doesn't need to be custom-manufactured for Sony notebooks--just needs to be an internal mobile IDE-PATA hard drive. Still, I would recommend at least looking for something name brand with a decent warranty. Amazon and Newegg.com both have the Western Digital WD2500BEVE (250GB) for $79.99. That's a decent price (not mind-boggling), but more importantly it's a solid size/price reference point--e.g., if you find a 500GB name-brand hard drive for the same price, pull the trigger immediately.

How can I start the laptop up from the CD Sony PCG-FRV25


when you start the computer press on F2 to take you to the setup page, then move to the boot sequence and move the CD to be the first so the computer will read the CD once the computer starts. I hope this solution has been helpful.

Sony Vaio PCG-FRV25 Cooling Fan Issue?


I was going to suggest overheating before I read your own diagnosis; Yes, sound like the fan, but you can check by opening up and watching it. Or install temperature monitoring software such as Speefan;
If it is the fan it may well be that there is only one possible replacement - officially. But it is usually possible to cannibalize something cheaper to suit your purpose!
