Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with Windows Home Premium and my CD/DVD drive does not work anymore. There is an error message which says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)". The actual drive make is MATSHITA BD-MLT UJ-225S ATA Device. I have tried everything from uninstalling the drive, looking at registries etc etc but nothing seems to work. I do not use my optical drive very often, but I think it did work 8 months ago when I first bought my computer. Since then I have installed many things and I can't be sure what has made it malfunction. Please help me if you can. Thank you Mrs Sheila Davey

What exact message and message-box title do you get? If you know how to handle disks (and it's therefore not a problem with a fingerprint or cruft on there,) it is still possible your DVD or Blu-Ray drive needs a good dusting (for which there are cleaning discs.)

You don't happen to have a Transmeta-based Vaio, do you? Those aren't on Windows 7's compatibility list.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

Having a problem getting my Sony Vaio PCG-3E2L laptop to auto play my photo DVD slide show. Using Windows Vista Home Premium OS.Also, where can I find a PDF Sony User Manaul for my laptop?


A quick short cut is to open a browser if you use Internet Explorer and select tools menu, then select Internet options. When the box opens then select the advanced tab and scroll down until you see a check box under security and check allow active content from CD to run on my computer.

MATSHITA UJ-850S DVD RAM not not working properly:


Try cleaning the disc. Getting that error means something is wrong with the lense of the drive. If disk cleaner wont do it, need to send it for repair.
