Problem Reformatting my Sony Vaio PCG-K45

I have a disk form which I have reformatted my laptop earlier but this time as I inserted the disk and booted the laptop it shut down, it would only start when I took the disk out.What could be the problem? Do you think because of the spyware I am not able reformat?
I would really appreciate help.
Thnx.

    I dont think, I will have to choose and option before the windows come on right? What happens is when the cd is in it tries to come up and shuts down.

    no, I cannot..can I go to safe mode and then boot from cd?If so, how do I do it? I also have partitioned the hard drive which b4 was not a problem for formatting, could it be now?

    that's correct..why do you ask?

    i don't believe you can boot from CD and go to Safe mode, but then, I've never tried that.

Is there a quieter fan for the sony pcg-k45?


If your fan is very loud, and works all the time, then probably you'll need to clean up your laptop from the inside. On average it only takes 3 months for any laptop to gather enough dirt so the CPU heatsing gets totally clogged and this causes the fan to work all the time, and in extreme cases your laptop even turns off so it protects the CPU from the excess heat.
Here's a very good overheating laptop cleanup tutorial with some best practices that any laptop owner should know.

Put the cd in and restart. If it doesn't give you a message to press "x" to boot from cd, then you need to chage the boot order in the BIOS.

To get into the BIOS, restart and press del or F2 (it might say something on the screen like press del to enter setup) that is the BIOS.

Change the boot order to CD first.
