We just received our hard drive back with the DVD's. Thank you for your data recovery service. When our computer crashed, I figured it was a lost cause. I tried to fix it with Norton's "Go Back". I took it to a local reputed Data Recovery Computer Wizard who played with it for 15 minutes and then told me that the only way to get data off the hard drive would be to send it to a "Data Recovery Clean Room" where they would not likely recover all of it. And it would cost a lot of money. And then my wife found you somehow.

You guys are incredible.

Thanks

Boot screen computer


bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.
6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

Clean Install Windows on a Sony Vaio

Even if a Windows operating system is already installed on your Sony Vaio, it is possible to clean install the same version again or clean install an upgraded version of the Windows operating system over the current operating system.
A clean install of a Windows operating system overwrites the Sony Vaio's current operating system and cleans the hard drive by automatically deleting all of the applications, files and settings that are stored on the Vaio.

Create recovery discs for your Sony Vaio using the Vaio's built-in VAIO Recovery Wizard.
Access Vaio Recovery Wizard by going to the "Start" menu and clicking "Help and Support." Follow the screens in the VAIO Recovery Wizard to make recovery CDs for your computer.
Transfer files and programs that you want to save onto an external storage device, such as an external hard drive or a CD.
To transfer the files and programs to an external hard drive, plug the external hard drive into a USB port on the computer and drag and drop files from the computer into the external drive window.
To transfer the files and programs to CD, open a CD-burning software and choose the "Data Disc" option, upload all of the files into the program and "Burn" or "Write" them to the disc.


Place the Windows installation CD or DVD into the disc drive of your Sony Vaio.
If the computer is already on, reboot the computer.
If not, turn the computer on to boot the installation disc.

Follow the onscreen prompts to go through the installation wizard for the Windows operating system.
Enter the product key from the Windows operating system packaging, accept the terms of the operating system license and, if prompted to choose a type of partition for the Sony Vaio, select "NTFS."
Click the "Install Now" button on the last page of the installation wizard.
The operating system installs to the Sony Vaio.

Wait for the installation of the operating system to complete, which can take up to two hours on some systems.
Once the installation is finished, reboot the Sony Vaio and the computer should boot up to the operating system screen.

I have a sony vaio vgn-fj78gp. i have to replace hdd 400gb sata, when i install the xp operating system igot an error


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

If you are using an USB external HDD storage to plug onto via the 1 USB port. Sometimes certain Laptops do not supply enough power to run the external device USB devices. You have to get a USB adapter with "double plugin" to plug in to 2 USB port. There are no software availiable to make it work if the power supplied to the external USB devices is insufficient!

Hope it helps.

My sony vaio laptop is showing no operating system found and when i am restarting it and pressing F10 continously its not helping me...please help me


Ketan,

It seems that your machine is not having no OS, You can press F2 to go to BIOS and make sure the First Boot device should be HDD.
You should also make sure the HDD is listed there and it is working fine (Run the HDD test from there).

Hope this will resolve your prolem!

No Sound on Sony VAIO Laptop


Go to Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices. Mute should not be checked. Go to the Sounds tab, slect Critcal Stop in the lower window. The line below that should show a wave file and in the middle a dark arrow. Click on the arrow. Sound? If none go to the Audio tab. The Sound playback and recording devices should the same and the default device may or may not be the same. Click Volume. No mutes selected and all sliders to the top. If none of this works then the operatings system has missing drivers and needs to be reinstalled and/or repaired.

Good Luck

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND....NO ACCESS TO CD DRIVE


Connect your external CDROM to the laptop. I think it is a USB CDROM. Enter your bios setup. In the boot device section, try to find any option which says First Boot Device -> USB CDROM. If you can set this things then the computer will be able to boot from your external cdrom.
