I understand that I can purchase an external USB CD drive and then boot from that. The reason for using a flash device instead of a CD is: Booting this flashdrive has been working for years on hundreds of computers but I just have this one computer that I cannot figure out how to get it to boot on.
I tried hooking my Samsung to another desktop, wala it works fine.
Just for the heck of it I unpluged the VGA cable while the TV was on PC input and pluged it in to my vaio Laptop, and for my surprise it worked. =) Hi, I have the same problem and I didn't manage to solve it !
For example if I want to boot off of a USB flash drive to boot into a live Linux distribution in order to clean virus’s on netbooks that do not have CD drives to boot from I would push bios setup and choose flash drive to be the first option.
When I restart the computer it will boot into the flash device.
As a matter of fact, I was not even able to enter the boot menu.
In the old days, we would always be able to enter the boot menu, select the media and get an error message when attempting to boot.
Anyone use one of Kensington's universal power supplies with their VGN-SR? Their compatibility wizard on the Kensington website doesn't list the VGN-SR290; only lists a Vaio SR series.
I think this may be referring to an older series and not the VGN-SR line.
I called Sony and was told this has been a known issue and solved yet. Thanks I have the same kind of issue between my vaio and my Samsung TV LCD through VGA...
the weird thing is that sometimes it worked (not many)...
When the palm rest assembly is removed you get an access to the hard drive, DVD drive, wireless card and CMOS battery. Remove three screws securing the hard drive assembly. If you are replacing or upgrading the hard drive you’ll have to transfer the mounting bracket and cable from the old drive to a new one. This adapter has to stay attached to the motherboard. In one of the previous guides I explain how to remove the LCD screen and inverter board from a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ series laptop.
