If it works just follow the following steps to upgrade to windows 8.1 without ruining your vaio

* Once the computer reinstalls windows 8. Click the help button to open vaio care.

* Click Vaio Update

* install every single update, there is until they are all done.

* return to vaio care, then click Security

* find where it says windows update and run that.

(this will update your current version of windows 8)

* Once it is done go to the microsoft store and the first tile, you should see is

"upgrading to windows 8.1 for free"

Download that and your computer will restart running 8.1

    I worked on the machine to get to start XP. Sometimes it will boot in Safe Mode, but most of the time (and when it does not start in 'normal' mode), it crashes with a blue screen. The blue screen flashes fast to read, and then the machine tries to restart.
    Once I do start safe mode and got WIndows update but can't update due to the update that needs to be in normal mode.
    I was able to install Malwarebytes and a full scan. Also installed Spybot S & D and performed a full scan.

    When it does not start in normal mode it is slow, very slow. I tried rkill and it causes the machine down.

    It starts in normal mode today, but it crashed before I can get open IE and go to the windows update.

    First of all, programs of a different version or windows session will not work on another computer as it was installed on the computer of origin at this time. It is an installation and application software, to the difference of the data or information that is accessible by any computer when the hard drive is connected. It is because no software installation binds the application of this specific operating system installed on this specific to the time machine.

    If the computer does not and the hard drive is accessible, all the content (such as music, photos, videos, and other information are accessible), but the programs have been installed originally are not available and will not work on any other computer when it is connected to the outside.

    However, if the hard drive works fine, windows is correctly installed, then the same hard disk can be installed on another PC of office and some of the programs should work ideally.

  • Ask for help with reinstalling Windows 7 on Sony Vaio

    Hi all

    I have a Sony Vaio Y Series in which I installed a pirated Windows and also improved version at 10. After these two cases, my laptop has become very slow and can barely use it. Now I want to reinstall the Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit original version which is pre installed, but I don't know if I have a DVD with it or not.

    If I buy an original Windows of any of the online sites, it'll work, or must it be model specific?

    Can someone tell me how to restore the original version now? I don't have the bifurcated drive where the original should have been in the store. I am based in the India but bought the laptop in Saudi Arabia.

    Any help will be really appreciated.

    Contact Sony:



    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

    Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:

    How to: What are my options for Windows 7 reinstall media?

    Make sure you scroll down and read the section:

    What to do if you cannot get your manufacturer recovery media, refuse to use or to buy it or the Microsoft Software Recovery Website does not work?

  • speakers Sony vaio does not...!

    The speakers of my sony vaio svf152a29w with windows 8 will not work. They work for about the first 5 minutes and stop working. I went through some of the questions that were similar to mine, but all those mentioned that everything could be heard when a headset is plugged in, but in my case that nothing can be heard even if the headset is connected. Help, please...!

    Hi Vikram,

    Thank you the quick update.

    Have you tried the steps in no sound in Windows from my previous post?

    If so, what was the outcome of the steps. Sound does not imply that the sound card drivers is not correct. Like you said it is not related to the applications and the system does not work as well, I think that the drivers went wrong. Please, try the procedure described in the article and we update with the results.

    In addition, as a test, put the computer in a clean boot state and then check if it helps. You can start
    Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    because the sound works certain programs or services may block sound a few minutes and the issue seems to happen. Test the issue in a clean boot state to confirm.

    Check out this link to do the same thing.

    Note: Follow the section 'More information' to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting.

    Please post with the State of the question.

  • Sony Vaio did not come with recovery cd and have not been able to locate the online game

    I have a Sony Vaio, which has a few years working with Windows XP Home Edition.  When I bought the computer first, I wasn't very experienced technilogically who did not think about twice the computer comes not not with an operating system cd.  In any case, now that the computer is a few years old I am aware of the importance of having this cd as a backup, if all else fails.  My problem is when I went on the Sony website where a list of retailers has been provided which might carry the recovery CD.  After phone calls and emails, I have yet to find one that still bears then Sony Vaio Recovery Set.  I always have my genuine key of Windows Xp, as well as of the receipt of the purchase of the computer.  I'm more concerned with a new installation or not all original came with my computer (ie. sony) programs.  My concern is just to find a real cd that I can use in the unfortunate situation where I have to reinstall my operating system.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your time.

    Maybe you have a recovery partition.

    Pressing F10 or F11 key when you turn on your system can put you in a recovery partition.

  • Computer laptop Sony Vaio can not connect to the Internet.

    Original title: Internet

    I bought a Sony Vaio laptop to my grandson. (Model UN. PCG 61611L. It is about 2 years. He can't go on the internet. It is not our internet provider so I think that

    He needs a recovery disk. Where can I buy one install?


    Yes, I agree that you'll want to contact Sony about this. However, if the only problem with the laptop is not able to connect, then you have a recovery disk.

    The first thing we do is to ensure that you have all necessary drivers installed on the laptop. Again, this is something you can find at the Sony support site.

    Because this laptop is not able to get online, then you will probably need to use another PC to go on the support site. Be sure to insert the appropriate for the Vaio model number and download all drivers in system on a flash drive, or other portable storage unit. Then just plug the drive into the Vaio and install these drivers.
