Well after reviewing your problem.

I'd suggest you take the cd to a pc where it works.
Then copy all the files from the disc to your harddrive

if you have a 1GB usb stick you can put the files there,
and install it on the laptop.

Hello. I have Sony Vaio PCG-5426. And I can't reinstall windows on that machine. I have out CD-ROM "II FreeCom" and i try to reinstall with that. In BIOS menu I acces for first boot drive...


you shouldn't need to have to press f9 to boot from cd rom if you have it set in the bios as the first boot device , are you sure the copy of windows on cd that you have is bootable. Try booting from the disc on another laptop or pc and see if you can start it



Another option to try is to boot from a usb drive


instructions on how to do that are here

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=118576

once you have booted to usb you should be able to access the cd rom

depending on what version of windows you are trying to install you will need to run different programs.

you could also install vista or windows 7 to usb drive and install it from that, it is much quicker than installing from cd/dvd you would need to be able to boot from usb to start with though

how to install vista or windows 7 from usb instructions can be found here

My sony vaio laptop model pcg-k33 does not play any type of dvds. would you please let me know how I can fix it? Thank you for you help.


I see its a DVD ROM not writeer so should read DVDs. Maybe the country is not set correctly. Access this by clicking on My Computer / Right click on CD/DVD writer / properties /auto play select mixed content. Also check for country and ensure it is selected correctly.

NB = If you make a mistake in country selection and try to correct it you will write off the DVD drive and render it useless as this procedure re writes the chipset. can only be done once.

Cant find cd rom cover for my sony vaio pcg-grx416g


It isn't really a necassary part and not worth replacing. You can get a new DVD burner for as little as 25-30$. If you need further assistance let me know. Thanks,

You need to locate screws below you laptop, the keyboard was ajusted by some screws(2-4), Vaio do this in almost all models. Detach your screws and your kb will be removed.
