Hi there!

How long have you been using it? Was it the first time that you encountered that problem? Can you describe specifically what sound it creates?

How do i reboot my laptop


Restore to factory settings

Restoring your Sony VAIO computer to its original factory settings is a great way to remove old programs and files that are buried within your computer that you no longer need, or to get rid of a virus that you just can't seem to shake.


This process will allow you to start anew with your computer, and can potentially save you from simply throwing the computer away because you don't think it can handle the workload anymore and spending money on a new machine.


Unplug any cables connected to your Sony VAIO machine with the exception of the power cord and monitor.


Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your screen.

Click "Control Panel."


Click "Performance and Maintenance."


Scroll down to the bottom of the Performance and Maintenance screen and click "VAIO" recovery wizard. The VAIO Recovery Wizard dialogue box will appear.


Click "Next."


Select "Proceed with System Recovery" and click "Next."


Select "C Drive Recovery" and click "Next."


Click "Next" to confirm that you want to proceed with the C Drive Recovery.


Click "Finish" to restart your Sony VAIO machine and initiate the recovery procedure.

Upon restarting your computer, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will prepare your hard drive for recovery and then restart your computer again.


The necessary files will be copied to your computer and your hard drive will be recovered.


Click "Finish" when a screen appears telling you that your recovery process is complete.

Your computer will restart.


Click "Next" when you arrive at the Windows setup screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your version of Windows.


When you have finished setting up Windows, click "Finish."

Your computer will restart.

Upon restart, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will install necessary files on your computer.


Your computer will restart automatically when these files are installed and your Sony VAIO will be restored to its original factory settings.


Hope this helps

How can i interface with an ssd drive after removing it from a sony vaio vpcz1


Well- depending on the age of the hard drive it is either an IDE/EIDE or S-ATA or they also have firewire and USB.

Go to Amazon or Google USB to IDE/SATA converter cable.

This is a kit that has a power supply and different connector types. So--if you get your drive from your laptop you can connect it with this kit to your desktop computer via usb. It will appear just like C: in my computer and will act like an external hard drive.

I hope this Helps!

Sounds like you've got a problem with your hard drive.

An easy way to troubleshoot your system would be to (ON A WORKING COMPUTER)

Download and burn a copy of UBUNTU

Boot the non-working computer with the UBUNTU disc, check the top under PLACES to see if your hard drive and files appear.

If you need more help, let me know. There's a lot to cover.

I have a sony vaio vgnsz330p. I want to be able to get data.


Take the hard drive out and go to the computer retailer and ask for a EIDE/SATA to usb adapter. You can then plug the hard drive into this adapter and then plug the usb cable into another computer...the computer will read the drive as an external and you can access all your files like any other drive.

My sony vaio freezes at the sony screen during boot


Most likely a hard drive problem but could be a number of things. Try pressing tab or escape when it freezes and see if the screen switches and gives more information. If you are able, remove the hard drive and try booting again. (the cd/dvd drive could also cause this so try removing that if possible)

Black screen freeze


You need to purchase a new hard drive because the one that you currently have is burned out. So go to a computer store and get a new hard drive and get windows installed on it and you should be just fine.

Computer problem, help.


This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.
