Hi guys! I recently formated my hard disk to reinstall windows xp pro sp2. After doing that my graphics card is not in the system anymore and I can't get my display back to wide screen and my remote control is not working. I did try to install the original drivers pacage and utils from sony web sit, but it didn't make any diference.I don't have recovery discs and I don't know how to get to that hidden partition. Please help me solve this problem. Thanks
Goto sonys website and download all the driver, then on your pc right click on my computer and goto properties and then hardware and then device manager, in here you should see all the driver that HAVE NOT BEEN INSTALLED PROPERLY, double click and point it to the drivers you just downloaded and it should automatically install, then reboot. thats what i did.
Download an updated driver from the graphics card (or integrated) manufacturer's website (Nvidia, ATI, INTEL, etc). Once you have the new driver, uninstall the old graphics driver, then install the new one (Do keep in mind however, you may have to double check your Bios settings, just in case that something might have changed. This of course is mainly for those cards that are integrated).
Have you tried the Sony website to download the "latest" video driver. I tend to avoid drivers that are on CD because you never know how old they are.
To get to the "hidden" partition in Windows: 1) Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage 2) Under Storage, click on Disk Management 3) In the lower-right you should see the hidden partion with NO driver letter assigned. 4) Right-click on it, and choose Assign Drive Letter or Change Drive Letter 5) Assign it a drive letter that's not already in use.

Why don't you try to get your main drive running before getting into Raid Configurations. Set your single drive to Master and run setup telling it you have one drive. Once you are satisfied that it is not some other fluky error, put in the other drive and I believe if SATA you don't even have to worry about Master Slave. Go about your boot and go into setup again. Hopefully all is good with the world and all that has to be done is fix up BIOS. No matter what, there is never an " out of the box " clean system. Make sure you plug your cables in correctly. I assume you're running EIDE. You'll get it.
If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.
Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.
If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.
the first thing i would do is to boot into safe mode than uninstall driver detective. than after this is done,, go to device manager and see if there is any problems with the sound card if so uninstall it with device manager and it will reinstall it automatically than you should be ok
Not without you saying what OS you're using, how you want to use it in applications, and how you wanted to attach it to the machine if it's not already installed.
I mean, offhand I'd say if you have 2 free bays in there, to either use those or mount that drive (along with a generally identical one) in Zalman drive coolers in the case, connect them so you can use SCA RAID 0 on them, set that RAID up, format to XFS or another choice filesystem, and start using it then.
