YOu should install the audio driver of your sound, if your sound card is buit in to board the model of the mainboard is needed and if it is an add on card then the model of the audio card. If ever you have cd utilities enclosed in your computer then that's the answer. You need to install that in series , Chipset, VGA, Audio, and other related to your system.

if ever you don't have then, post the model i stated above i will search it for you to download.

The issue may appear due to several reasons such as Windows Update or any recent hardware or software changes in the computer.

1. Please reset the BIOS to default values.

2. Try booting the computer to Windows in safe mode by pressing the F8 key at startup.
3. If the issue persists, please check if the hard drive is listed with its volume (size) eg: 500GB in the BIOS main menu. Press F2 key at startup to enter BIOS.
4. If the hard drive is listed, perform a system recovery using the recovery console/partition by pressing the F10 key at startup.
5. If issue persists, please use the recovery discs or contact the sony service team to get the computer repaired.
The issue may be related to the operating system files. Getting the recovery partition re-imaged will be the best possible resolution.

Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Applications load at Startup,some may not be required. you can disable Startup applications using MSCONFIG.
  • Click Start, click Run and type MSCONFIG
  • Click Startup tab on top and view the listings.
  • Uncheck the applications which you want to disable from Startup
  • Click OK
Windows XP does not require any program for mandatory Startup.
But you should leave the following to run at Startup.
  • Firewall programs
  • Anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities
  • Keyboard software or related for hotkey functionality (this one is optional as well)
  • Software provided by your Internet Service Provider (for Internet Connectivity)
Also run a cleaning program such as Ccleaner and an antivirus program such as spybot search and destroy to make sure your system is clean and free from viruses.

Please rate this a fixya.

Computer shuts down ever time I connect the iPod

Are you using Windows XP or Vista? If windows XP, make sure that you have the latest service pack 2 and hotfixes. Go to Start All Programs/ Windows Updates to update. Note that this is very common if you do not have the latest updates for Windows XP. And I would say that if it works on other computers, it definitely software related; either computer is not up to date, Version of itunes or Driver issue/corruption. Has it ever worked on that computer? If it has, Then just run a system restore to when it last worked and that should take care of it. Let us know if any of these works for you.
