Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K33 Notebook

1 Answer

I just got my Vaio PCG-K33 operational once again by installing a replacement LCD screen. Now I realize why I was not in a rush to return this laptop to running condition. The cooling fan runs constantly and is so loud (compared to my other two laptops). And the air the fan blows out is very warm. Is there anyway to quiet the fan down so the laptop is a pleasure to use instead of loud and obnoxious?

Cd drive is not recongonised with qsi cdrw/dvd sbw242c -Vaio lap top PCG-k33-model PCG-9s1l


if its the original drive that came with the laptop ...just reinstall the operation system ...and this will fix the problem ...if will continue to do that ...it means that its something wrong with the device and need to be replaced..
you can also go to bios and restore factory defaults by presing F9 or choosing the optimal defaults from the menu ...after that just save changes and reboot ...this in case the problem is from there ...cause there are cases when the drive may be deactivated from bios..
