From the problems you're having, im assuming you have reloaded or updated your windows install, as you seem to be missing codecs and drivers.
The codecs are what allow the computer to recognize different video formats, to get full support for video formats, i would suggest going to download.com search for 'codec pack' and download the 'windows essentials media codec pack'. That should solve your problem, however if it does not you can also try a different media player, the best one is free and is called VLC media player, and can be downloaded from download.com as well.
The memory card reader most likely just needs a device driver. here is a list of all the device drivers available for your laptop from sony : http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNNS135ES&LOC=3 scroll down to ' Memory card reader/writer' and expand by clicking the '+' next to it then download it and install. you may want to have a look at the list to make sure theres nothing else you need if you have infact had windows reloaded since purchasing the laptop.

To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a regionfree player or you need to install a region free program on yournotebook/computer.

Hello have you tried going into my computer, right clicking your CD/DVD drive letter and clicking eject?

However you can also try downloading the firmware for your CD/DVD Drive by clicking the link i have provided, select your operating system, scroll down and click on the CD/DVD Drives link.

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.

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.

Sony Vaio Notebook's blu-Ray optical drive stops during DVD play


The laser is definitely weak on that drive, it takes alot of power to play blu-ray discs and if the laser may have been slightly defective to begin with then that can cause the drive to act funky the way it has been.

Whatever blu-ray drive you get doesn't matter as long as the shape of it is the same as the one you have now cause all you would have to do is change out the front door and the screw holder on the back of the drive, then because the shape of the drive is the same, you can move it back into its slot.

Your notebook is new enough to where any drive will work in it.

CDRW/DVD ROM Drive


I would suggest trying WinDVD and see if that works. If so, then yes, it would be a decoder issue.
