Error 58 unable to write to boot sector


Run CHKDSK, if you see a message "The drive contains one or more unrecoverable problems", you need a new hard drive.

If you cant get on to Windows try a fresh install. If that fails buy a new HDD should fix it.

I can't find the the hotkey utility application from the sony web site.model is VGN-NR160E. Tks !


To enable the Function keys in the Computer, it is required to install VAIO Event Services. In older Computers, the application was called Hotkey Utility and in the newer Models, VAIO Event Services is used to enable the Function keys. You can download the VAIO Event Services (Notebook Utility) from the link below.

Sony vaio vgn-nr160e with vista, function+ keys wont work


Hi,
To enable the Fn keys functionality, you need to install the "Vaio Event Service" and "Sony Utility Series"
They are available to download as part of a package from the Sony website. Here is the link:

I can't boot up the Vista install on a Sony Vaio VGN-NR160E


go to your BIOS Setup, see to it that there is a Hard Disk Boot Priority, maybe you didn't put it there.

Disk read error


Hey,

If you receive this error in start up and your computer doesn't load windows. It was unable to read the disk.

Please use your recovery discs (or windows installation cd/dbd) to restore the computer. If the recovery discs don't solve the problem and you still receive the same error, the hard drive is possibly damaged. I would suggest to take the laptop to a professional for testing and fixing.


Thanks and good luck.
