Spilled water on keyboard of Sony VIAO VGN-FW250j and crashed HDD. Get system not found at startup. Replace HDD and get error:333 when loading recovery media kit. All hardware checks OK by Bestbuy geeks...


unfortunately water has a way of finding it's way into the circuit board, when it does it causes immeasurable damage, as parts of the circuit, and components that were not meant to get voltage are exposed to it, this generally ruins the machine's motherboard, with little chance of recovery. The HD may be OK as may be the DVD however anything electronic will generally be ruined,sorry. A recovery DVD is only good for SOFTWARE, problems... you have a hardware issue.

Windows unable to complete format.


How did you format the computer, inside windows or outside?
Try this change the boot sequence from the BIOS instead of booting first to HD make your optical drive as first boot. After changing the boos sequence insert the windows vista disk to the drive then restart the computer. When it boots it will ask you to press any key to boot to CD/DVD. Keep tapping on space bar. If you notice it will say windows copying files. When copying files completed we isolated the problem dvd rom is fine and the vista installer is fine as well.
If the problem only started in or during attempting to format you HDD might causes the problem.

Replaced HD and CD Rom drive, PC will not boot to disk, Do I need to format HD 1st. before loading OS?


Hi Get to the bios screen using F8 or F9, change the first boot device to CD ROM/DVD, then insert a bootable disk into the CD drive and try installing the OS first by completely formatting the HD during installation Win XP and higher OS editions give you the option to partition the HDD Hope this resolves

Vista installation problem.


Make sure that your CD/DVD drive is set as the first boot device in BIOS, then insert the Vista setup cd and reboot. Installation should now be automatic.

Computer wont boot properly


A POST diags card can help you resolve your problem/s, if not then.
1. remove all devices and insert the floppy drive, one RAM module and video card.
2. Go into the BIOS configuration and set it to the default configuration, check the installed RAM is it correct? .
3. Insert the remainder RAM module/s and check the POST info and BIOS again, has it detected all the RAM?
4. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk
5. Insert the CD and hard disk and check the POST info and BIOS configuration, does it detect the new drives?
6. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk, run FDISK, can you see the hard drive, if so delete all partitions (if any) and create a new primary DOS partition and then format the hard drive.
7. Boot up with the Windows CD (may have to change the boot order to the CD as the first boot device).
8. Delete the DOS partition, create a primary NTFS partition and the do a full NTFS format (not a quick format) and continue to install Windows Xp or Vista.
9. Install the other device eg modem, Lan etc. and the drivers.

If you have trouble with the first 5 steps, then you most likely have a faulty motherboard and/or a faulty hard disk.

IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop Os Install Impossible


You probably need an OEM version of XP...not that IBM version. If you buy an OEM version, you can use it many computers. A real XP disc will partition, format, and delete partitions on any functioning Hard drive. Don't buy a recovery disc, please. That just sounds WRONG.

A cheaper solution might be a new Hard Drive...but I don't trust your IBM version of XP.
