My Sony Vaio Laptop (Model VPCEE42FX) isnt working, it turns on, but then it says "Operating System Not Found." Can you help me ?


The laptop cannot find the Operating system which is installed on your hard disk drive. Go into the BIOS (setup menu) and see if the hard disk drive is present. If it is then your might need to reload the OS ( operating system software,i.e. Winodws Vista, Windows 7 ). If the BIOS does not detect your hard drive then either your hard drive is defective or the motherboard has a problem.

System crashed replaced hard drive now trying to load windows 7 but after bios loads we get a really weird glitchey screen and it says 'Operating System not found'


That message is because there is no OS on the disk. Press OK to agree the notice and then load the System Disk in your DVD drive and boot from there.

Sony vaio vgn series laptop - when xp os loading blue screen appears and display the msg hard disk drive not detected.


system not found in my experience generally leads to a damaged or loose hard drive, try to open the cover at the bottom side of the machine, and reseat the hard drive, if it still says system not found, get a 2.5 inch drive case, put your laptop drive in the case and connect it to another machine, if you can access the drive great! save all your files and once complete return the drive to your machine and try to reinstall the OS from a dvd then reinstall your files.. and if still having the same problem replace hard drive thanks.

Hi dinesh_srika,
If the Hard Drive is not detected in the BIOS, there may be some Hardware related issues with the Hard Drive. So it is better to repair the Computer at service Center to identify the exact issue and fixit.

"Error loading operating system" message


This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.

Vaio error message


This generally indicates a hard drive failure, but occasionally it's just an operating system glitch. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a fresh operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
