Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CR220E/P Notebook
The system is not recognizing your hard drive- Here's how you can see if you need to call Sony/Geeksquad. Check if you have any USB drives in your system- if so, remove them. Try rebooting. If that works- the issue was your system was trying to boot off of the thumb drive. If it doesn't work- try and see if there is a drive sticking out from your laptop- usually on the right side, and towards the bottom- slide it in if so. If not- your hard drive may have failed, or the motherboard controller for your hard drive has failed. Contact the people that have your system in warranty- if it is not in warranty, you can purchase a replacement drive to see if the issue was just the drive itself. Unfortunately, if it is the motherboard, and you are out of warranty- you may rather purchase a new laptop. Laptop motherboard replacements generally run in the 300+ range- I've known Dell to charge 500-900 for their out of warranty repairs.
