Check in "device manager" for any hazard warning signs which indicate a problem with either the device or its driver's....to check, go to desktop, right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware tab, click "device manager" and check the list for those devices you mention. From here you can also troubleshoot and update driver if required.

My Sony Vaio will not boot to the OS.


You'll need to order the recovery disks from Sony:
  • Pricing and shipping information can be obtained from the Sony® Parts and Accessories Sales Web site or by calling (800) 488-7669.
  • Ifthe Sony Parts and Accessories Sales Center no longer carries recoveryCDs/DVDs for your model computer, service may be required. The Sony®eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.
Alternatively, you can purchase a copy of Windows XP or Vista and download all the drivers from here:
