    The VGN TX650P laptop was giving problems of bootup after it fell down. We opened the same to find if the hard disc was fine or some other breakage was there. We did not find anything wrong. On asembly when you put it on -

    1. it doesnot come on from the on button easily, and when it comes on it sayd Operating syste not found but we can see the hard disc icon flashing and then stopping.

    2. It cones on from the AV mode but says the operating plane is not available and restart the system. Press any key to close.

    What could be wrong ?

This is caused by :-
1. Your hard disk has failed.
2. Your BIOS settings for the hard drive has been altered
3. Your hard drive has been wiped or someone or a virus program that has deleted critical files.

Go into your BIOS setup to check the hard disk settings, if possible see if it will auto detect the hard drive.

Also boot up with a DOS disk run FDISK to see if you can detect a hard disk, partitions etc.

If the hard disk appears OK you may be able to do a disk repair, most likely you would need to re-install the operating system and the laptop drivers for video, audio, LAN, modem etc.

Operating system not found?

If your laptop says Operating System not found then you need to install the operating system.
It is easily available in any Local Computer Shop.
Just insert the CD in the laptop and try to start the computer it might ask some detail just follow the instruction on the screen and it will automatically install the Operating System.
The Common Examples are Windows Xp, Vista, and Win 7.
You can use anyone as you want. But I will suggest to use windows xp.

Thank you. If you have any trouble do come back in fixya

The computer does not boot into the operating system and displays "Operating System not found."

For that problem, do this first check-up your bios setting.
Power on your PC laptop
, when screen popped up ( press F2, delete etc. ) to get into standard bios Setup you see there if your hardisk drive detected or not detected. if not detected try to open your Laptop PC ( need power off. open cover at the back of your laptop ) check-up your hardisk drive for loose power cable, data cable hardisk Some burn , noise hardisk sound ) if detected, your operating system corrupted. you need to Reinstall your operating system like windows xp, windows 7 or linux base operating system. try that Solution first.

Just let me know if not yet working your laptop PC.

Unfortunately it sounds as if the hard drive is clicking and not detecting because it has failed. At this point you will need to locate the operating system media for your system and purchase a new hard drive and start from scratch.

Operating System Not Found on VAIO Laptop

The disk-drive inside the computer has ceased to function (or has ceased to have connected "power" and "data" connections) -- thus, the Operating System cannot be read from the disk-drive.

Take the computer to a qualified technician; there's nothing that you can do "inside" your computer.

How to reset a laptop CY25?

Windows XP, right? Click on start, shutdown and then restart!

Is the laptop frozen? Hold down the power button for about 5-10 seconds until power shuts off. Just press the power on again to get it to start back up. Make sure you can NOT reset soft before cycling power on your laptop because you can lose/corrupt data during a cold boot.

Hope this helps,
