    harddisk is alright. and i have checked with my desktop system. yes my laptop can boot and also harddisk LED light flashes while booting.

    it takes time in booting and when i starts recovery it goes to some steps and then it hangs.

    Can you boot up the laptop? Does the hard disk LED light flash when you boot up?

Camera does not work


There won't be anything that Sony can do about that currently, it would seem that it will not work on Windows 7 due to a lack of drivers.
