You need to open the pc and then refix all the components inside. verify also the memory chips, remove it and clean and then fix it back. if your noise maybe the hard drive got error. please tell me whats going after you do the solution.

Sounds like you may have 2 problems, that is
1) corrupted windows installation or faulty Hard drive causing the constant reboot.
2) faulty CD drive or dirty laser or dirty disks.
You could try pressing F10 when you see the vaio logo which will take you to the HDD based recovery options.
Test your cd/dvd disks in another machine to make sure they are o.k if they are you can try cleaning laser in cd drive.
Or if the disks are o.k and your cd drive is faulty you could use an external usb cd drive and set the bios to boot from an external drive.
