It seems your DC socket is suspect, as sometimes it connects and powers on and at times it doesn't. replacing the DC socket on the motherboard should cure it.

Dont get exactly your problem but i will try to give some tips.

1. Hanged for about 10 to 15 mins, then proceed to windows? if this is the case, then i would check first the boot sequence, sometimes computer uses network boot.

2. Removed external HDD or flash drive when booting.

3. At the BIOS, try to change the SATA mode to compatibility

Yes it's painful... Manufactures and vendors FIX the items that have THE MOST complaints, but often build in NEW problems with devices that worked before!

TRY going back to a older version(s) first... ESPECIALLY true if your device worked BEFORE the latest update... HERE is a GREAT Site for you and others:

Old and New Software Version Downloads OldApps com

IF you need a older version of X program... you should find it there!

Hello, Jean Pierre...

Yours looks like a "common" CD/DVD Player? Your question specifies "Sony", but that number is also good for a "LiteOn" Drive?

Can you PLEASE tell us the SYSTEM MFG and MODEL this drive belongs to?

MOST photos show a Drive that fits a 'standard' drive slot in a PC? A FEW other photos show a thin LAPTOP configuration?

I tried to find a manual for you to discover if it's a IDE or a newer SATA but I had little luck and many dead ends.

LOOK at the connectors on the back of your Drive... TRY to find a NEW/Faster replacement with the SAME connectors!

USE CAUTION! If yours is a IDE type you MAY need to move a tiny plastic JUMPER to "SLAVE"?
