AFTER INSTALLING WIN XP YOU SHOULD INSTALL THE DISPLAY DRIVER. ONLY THEN YOU WILL GET A CLEAR SCREEN. AND IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED THE DRIVER THEN CHANGE THE RESOLUTION IN RIGHT CLICK->PROPERTIES.

PLS REPLY OR COMMENT. THANKS

Can you boot from usb on a sony vaio pcg-9s1l


You may need to "Flash" (Update) the Bios. To do this, go online and download the latest Bios update for your machine.

Unzip the downloaded file and place it on an empty Memory stick.

Insert the memory stick and restart your machine. The Bios update should install.

Wait for the process to finish and then see if you now have the option in Bios>Boot Options to Boot from USB.

if the sony laptop already has an OS on it or a newer version of windows than XP, you have to uninstall the current OS on the sony vaio. also, that means reformatting the Hard Drive on the sony which actually wipes it clean. Before you do that, you should have the original disk of the sony pc drivers installation or you need to go to the product(sony vaio) web site so you can download those drivers for (PCG-61213W) to disk or flash drive. after wiping Hard drive, you can install the XP, then the drivers that you downloaded. However, viaos are strange pc's so i would ask Sony if this XP install will be compatible with the Sony pc hardware components first. good luck.

Use your mouse to RIGHT CLICK on an empty area of your desktop.
Select PROPERTIES.
Select SETTINGS tab.
Move the SCREEN RESOLUTION SLIDER to a different setting.
Click APPLY.
Keep trying different settings until you find one that is acceptable.
Then Click APPLY and OK and then reboot your computer.

That should do it.
Good luck and please rate this with 4 Thumbs Up if it was helpful.
Thank you.

Vaio PCG-9S1L Screen is very dark, extremely hard , LAPTOP SONY


As stated in your post "two year old may have dropped it"
If this is true than the backlight has probably been damaged. The small flourescent tubes that generate light through the LCD display.

Cd drive is not recongonised with qsi cdrw/dvd sbw242c -Vaio lap top PCG-k33-model PCG-9s1l


if its the original drive that came with the laptop ...just reinstall the operation system ...and this will fix the problem ...if will continue to do that ...it means that its something wrong with the device and need to be replaced..
you can also go to bios and restore factory defaults by presing F9 or choosing the optimal defaults from the menu ...after that just save changes and reboot ...this in case the problem is from there ...cause there are cases when the drive may be deactivated from bios..
