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.

if the sony laptop already has an OS on it or a newer version of windows than XP, you have to uninstall the current OS on the sony vaio. also, that means reformatting the Hard Drive on the sony which actually wipes it clean. Before you do that, you should have the original disk of the sony pc drivers installation or you need to go to the product(sony vaio) web site so you can download those drivers for (PCG-61213W) to disk or flash drive. after wiping Hard drive, you can install the XP, then the drivers that you downloaded. However, viaos are strange pc's so i would ask Sony if this XP install will be compatible with the Sony pc hardware components first. good luck.

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.
