Assuming you still have a recovery partition on your hard drive and you should assuming you still have your original configuration on your laptop, you can hit the F11 key during early bootup and that will lead you into the recovery setup to be used during situations by which you have lost the present, originally working boot-up. I will add you should have created a recovery set of DVD/CDs when you first bought the computer and brought it home. However I must assume you did not do that and so the F11 button has to be used and hopefully the recovery partition is not corrupted. Until you give me more information I will have to leave it as I have written so far.

    @ Guest, please SHOW ME where you can download a recovery ISO for any Sony computer. In all my last year of research I have yet to find it on any of the many European and Asian Sony sites that I have visited. Are you suggesting find a recovery iso on a non Sony authorized site? If you are, I suggest you change your NICK to ' fool ' instead of ' guest '.

Your best bet for now is to switch on -hold down F8 and try to boot into safe mode-scroll down the list in the dropdown and select "Last known good Configuration" and select a date before you loaded SP1.Follow the instuctions.Just remember Vista is a 64bit system.You cannot load Vista on a System which formerly had a 32 bit OS .If this does not help,you'll have to format and reload .Regards

Please follow these steps to resolve the issue.
  • Check if the Default Audio Device is changed.
  • Please right click on Volume icon and select Playback Device.
  • Select the Speaker as Default and click OK.
  • Please check if Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is installed in the Computer.
  • Please right click on Computer icon and select properties and check if Vista Service Pack 1 is installed.
If the Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is installed in the Computer, then install the BIOS update to resolve the issue as the Audio may not work properly after installing Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.
