You have to set the CD as the first boot device in the BIOS. When you power on the laptop press delete repeatedly until you are in the BIOS. You then have to browse trough the tabs until you find Boot Priority. On the first Priority set the CD-ROM and on the second Priority set your hard drive. Save the settings and exit.
The machine will reboot and will ask you to press any button to boot from disk. Press any button to launch the installer and you are on your way to install Windows.
Good luck! Let me know if this solution was useful!
This over heating issue is a common issue for this model of VAIO Computer. You will get a free service or replacement of parts(Battery) from the Sony Service Center. For more information please follow the link below.
Hope this will help you. All the best.
you can try to go to bios pae and check if the system can detect the hard drive.If not you might need to call call Sony to check if the system is still on warranty so that they can replace the hard drive free of cost if not you might need to replace it with a new one
That takes an IDE mini hard drive. However if ur in the bios trying to get an operating system to auto recognize the drive then tell it to auto detect. The drive on that is rather high the only 1 I seen was a 40GB at $159
if its the original drive that came with the laptop ...just reinstall the operation system ...and this will fix the problem ...if will continue to do that ...it means that its something wrong with the device and need to be replaced.. you can also go to bios and restore factory defaults by presing F9 or choosing the optimal defaults from the menu ...after that just save changes and reboot ...this in case the problem is from there ...cause there are cases when the drive may be deactivated from bios..
With the old drive in the computer you should be able to do a recovery with the disks furnished with the computer when you got it.
What you have to do with the new disk installed is go into the BIOS and set the disk to AUTO, then srrow net to Boot and set the boot priority to CD as first boot. Then hit F10 or go toe EXIT and say YES. Then with your Windows disk in the ROM drive start the computer and when the window asks whether to BOOT from disk or CD ROM, hit any key and follow the instructions. Including format the disk when it asks. Hope this helps. Bud
