That is a simple problem with a difficult answer. The bios has been infected by a virus that has placed its self in the chip. You need to flash the bios chip which is very diffcult on a laptop motherboard. 

Take the motherboard completely out of the casing. Find the bios battery and remove it and keep it removed for about an hour, come back to it replace the battery and then try to reinstall xp home. If this continues you'll need to wipe the bios and reinstall it and that is more or less a waste of time and a pain in the backside.

I have a sony vaio vgn-nr430e laptop, and was wondering if the motherboard processor could be upgraded? Also can a video card be installed.


Yes you should be able to upgrade the processor on the laptop for a faster one. The socket type of the processor is socket PPGA47. This code is what you type for when looking for a faster processor. The installed processor should be Intel Pentium T2390 / 1.86 GH.

As for the graphics card then i'm sorry but the graphics chip is part of the motherboard and cannot be upgraded.

Problems with Vaio vgn-fz21j graphic card

Hi tahseen_huss. If you are sure it's the graphics card and not the monitor. It could be expensive to replase because it's on the motherboard and you can't replace it. You will need to replace the whole motherboard. Prices could range from $350 to $600 just parts, you will need to add the labor. So it's up to you. I hope this helps and don't forget to rate and write positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

Not a lot you can do except take it to a sony dealer it needs Bios rominfo changed which can only be done with the right softwre tools.
Provided the board supplied is from the same series everything should work o.k except you will not be able to do a system recovery.
