Wheres reset button on sony cybershot dsc w130???

I'm glad to provide the information about the Camera. The Camera does not have a RESET button to press manually to reset it.

If you wish to reset the Camera, you can use the Initialize option from the Menu item to perform it if the Camera is allowing it.

Please perform a power resetting if the Camera is not turning ON or you're unable to access the Menu items. Please follow the below steps to perform a power resetting
  • Remove the battery from Camera.
  • Press and hold the Power button for more than 15 seconds.
  • Reinsert the battery
  • Turn ON the Camera.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Trying to restore the system go into safemode and install antivirus software.

If you need to get into safe mode just hit F8 as soon as you power it on. Depending on how annoying it wants to be you may just about have to hold F8 down until you get the boot menu. Then select safe mode from the option (at the top). You will need to have all the software available on a usb device as you won't have anything but usb or the built in hard drive to access ie no net or cd/dvd.

Boot from usb

Sounds like the boot order menu is what you have. Set the boot order menu to try other devices before the hard drive. (Example: CD/DVD drive, floppy; if present, USB devices, hard drive). You should have a default key for accessing the boot menu (usually f11 or f12). Hit this key and choose the USB option. Make sure the device you want to boot to is already connected before you turn on the laptop.

GETAC W130 Remove Hard drive

Hope I'm not too late.

You can access the hard drive by removing the bottom panel.

You need to first remove the battery cover, battery spacer, and then the two screws in the battery compartment.

Then remove all the large screws on the bottom plate.

Don't remove the little ones that hold the rubber port flaps, just open each flap so it won't get hung up on them.

Then take a flatblade like a mechanics size and insert it in the slot at the top edge just inside from the corners. They will be at the handle end of the laptop.

What you do is stand the laptop up on end.

Insert the blade at an angle while holding the handle in the other hand.

Lift the screwdriver handle upwards so that the blade grips downwards and lifts the bottom off the laptop. The slots I mentioned are not so obvious, but think of them as access holes and the bottom plate is wedged into the case like a can of sardines. If you stick your driver in there you can pry it up at the top and then it will open up and still be attached at the back until you open it up a full 90 degrees.

It will be a little tight at first but once it moves it come off freely with a couple wires attached.

I can send you a photo if you can't find the two openings.

You can access the hard drive in the middle left area without removing the entire cover.

You just need to open it wide enough to pry up the connector from the hard drive where it plugs into the board.

These are supposedly 1.8" drives so most likely you'll need to find an adapter to be able to recover your files. Usually a ZIF to IDE and then use a USB 2.5" enclosure or you might be able to order a ZIF to USB enclosure. I can help you figure that out once you pull it out. I swear I counted 46 pins on the mainboard side. I'm stumped until I see what you pull out of there.

I'm interested in photos and info on the drive and connector since mine is missing and I was to find something that might work instead of paying full cost from the manufacturer.

I also need an AC adapter for this damn thing, but it sure looks cool!

As far as laptops, it's way too heavy but the most Bad *** case on the planet.

Makes me think of the bad guy in those action's like some kind of super detonator tracking monitoring bleeping minefield activating superslick laptop the hero must disarm or destroy!

My sony cybershot dsc-w130 doesn't seem to be charging.

DSC-W130 camera battery doesn't charge via USB.
It has individual battery charger which plugged in AC.
You can see battery charger in user manual.

USB plug in recognition


To be honest, I am not sure if your post/query was intended for me. However, it shows up in my queue so i couldn't escape it. I will take a shot at the last part.

Sony DSC-W130 has 15MB Integrated Memory and support for Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo cards. Generally unless you install the software for the Cybershot DSC-W130, Windows XP/Vista will pick it up as a Mass Storage Device.

The Mass Storage Device emulation allows you access to pictures/video taken; copy, move, delete etc. If you can do these, then the DSC-W130 is working as designed.

However, if there pictures on the DSC-W130 but you are unable to access it, then that is a worry and a poblem. Note if you have a memory stick installed. The internal memory will be inaccessible. You will have to remove the memory stick before the internal memory initialises and is accessible

I am afraid I am not an expert on Sony DSC-W130. My response is best effort
