It probably is a "dead" disk-drive inside the computer.
So, the computer would try to boot from the 3.5-inch diskette drive, or the CD/DVD drive,
if there was "bootable" media inside the device.

So, you need to take the computer to a computer-store, to remove the "dead" disk-drive,
and for them to sell you a "new" and "compatible" disk-drive.

Then, you must re-install Windows (did the seller include a set of "System Restore") CD/DVD disks? Or, can you telephone Sony, and order a replacement set of those disks?

You need to boot from them to launch the recovery process. The key to press to select boot device is in the first screen that appears. Press it, select the cd/dvd unit and follow the instructions on the screen.

My Sony VAIO VGC-RB43 PC cannot reboot there is a green light blinking in the back and i want to know how to reboot my computer.


if able u can reboot by accessing start button and clicking turnoff and choosing restart. some pc's have restart button under power button. if not you can shut it down by holding pwr button for 10 seconds. some computers will not reboot if your hardware abstraction layer (HAL) was corrupt. if so you have to reinstall it. u can just follow help options in your pc help by pressing F1 and seraching for HAL.

Reboot and select proper boot device


Hi, ull need to check the boot device priority in ur BIOS which is accessable usualy by pressing the delete key at the start of the boot process. If everthing is correct there and yet it doesnt boot from ur hard disk, try changing it to boot from cd and check if it boots. If it does then i think either your hard disk is corrupted or your OS.

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
