To resolve this symptom, turn off the computer after inserting the Recovery CD into the CD-ROM drive. Then, turn on the computer again.
Alternatively, please check the following when the VAIO computer does not start when the Recovery CD is inserted:
- There is possibility that the boot sequence of the device has been changed. Please reset the value in BIOS to the default values.
- The PC card CD-ROM drive may not be connected securely to the VAIO computer. Please remove and reconnect the PC card CD-ROM drive.
- If other peripherals are connected to the VAIO computer, disconnect these peripherals except the CD-ROM drive.
Use only the supported CD drive that is recommended by Sony. For more details, please visit the VAIO online website.
