What is the problem?

I don't believe your computer has wireless capability. If not, you can purchase a PCMCIA wireless card that would work.

Possibly there might be a problem with the Video Card in the All in One PC.
You can try updating the BIOS version and the Video Card driver to correct the issue. If this won't fix the problem, contact your computer manufacturer for further help with a possible hardware problem.

1. Make sure you have the most current driver installed (from the Sony website).

2. Try to play once the new driver is installed.

If it still doesn't play, your CD drive is dead :( sorry.

If you only have 512MB of ram, installing more ram will speed it up a lot. Max supported ram is 1024 or 1GB. install another 512MB ram module.
it will improve the performance.
Do not install windows 7 to this computer, it does not have enough ram it will be slower.
Let me know if you need further assistance or advice. Ekse

  1. Insert the Windows XP installation CD into your computers CD-ROM drive and restart.
  2. You will be prompted to “Press any key to boot from CD…”. Press a key.
  3. Once loaded, the Windows XP setup menu will give you several options. Press the “R” key to repair Windows.
  4. When prompted, selected your Windows installation. In most cases this is “1′. Press enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. If you don’t have a password set, just press enter.
  6. Type the following commands, pressing enter after each line. Replace “e:\” with the letter of your CD-ROM drive.
    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
    bootcfg /rebuild
  7. After entering that last line and pressing enter, you will be walked through the process of rebuilding the boot file. Most of the prompts should be self explanatory, but here are a few tips:
    • The first prompt should ask you to confirm the operating system that was automatically detected. Make sure the detected OS is the operating system you have installed and then type “y” and press enter.
    • You will also be prompted for a “load identifier”. This is the user friendly name that is displayed when selecting advanced startup options. You can type anything you want here, but it is best to type the full name of the operating system (such as “Windows XP Home Edition).
  8. Eject the CD from your computer. Type “exit” and press enter. Your computer will restart, and this time it should load without displaying an error.

if it appears a blue screen,, your computer have a problem with the memory..

you can use two memory in two slots if it is the speed of the memory and slot has the same value..

if doesn't ,, you must back the one and buy one that the same to the normal memory..

Clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the compartment. Then, reset the BIOS to its default settings.
Next, plug in the AC Adaptor to charge the Battery.

If the issue persists then the problem may be related to the power circuitry.

Well there are some things that might help you with this...  
  1. first you need to figyer out weather you have a Hardware, or Software problem.
Here are some ideas...
  • Go to http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html?Str=download for a free scanner. I use it all the time!  When you download it and install it, open it and let it scan... this will find ANY problems on your computer!!!

  • if this dosn't help then go to http://free.grisoft.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition#tba2 and download the AVG Free.  when it is done installing let it scan your computer (may take about 1-2 hrs)

  • if this does not help and you have no warranty, then I would just sell it somewhere like ebay...
and get a newer one :)

Better check first your air vents/holes for build up clogs. Might be a thermal problem. Blow that using compressed air can. Second check your memory card, might be dirty contact with the connector. Cleaning using a soft eraser only its edge connector. But disconnect first the battery and Power Adaptor supply line and power it down completely before doing so.

Could be its problem is dirt build up. If this first steps fails, consider your plan checking its internal. For overheat and other check up.

For inputs, hope it helps.
