hi Linda , try this link to start, follow the instructions on the screen and u will get it to boot from cd first. it should be the same as your model and if somewhere on the bios screen it says save and exit do so if all is good follow the instructions from the previous posts.

You can try to fix it through create rescue bootable flash drive, the lens from here may be available for you: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Edit: by Gmod, the link you sent is not a recognized fix here. If you tried it and it works. post back. Otherwise we don't allow first time posters to post untested links.

Linda if u need a repair disk go here and download the one for your system and burn it to a cd. http://bootdisks.windowsreinstall.com/
go here and download imgburn to burn the file to cd. http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
when imgburn opens click on write image file to disk, it will take u to another window and click on the little yellow folder and it will open a new window and find where the repair iso you downloaded for your system click once on it and then click on the open button near the bottom right hand corner, then it will take you back to the main window of imgburn, make sure u have cd in your cd drive and then click on write to disk at the bottom of the window and just wait till it is done.
if u need to find out what your system is click on thw windows start button and find the control panel link and click on it then click system and then system again all your info should be right there, write it down look for 32 bit or 64 bit windows version, go and download it from the link posted above. again do u have a cd drive on your Vaio { broken computer }

try this link to get to your cd settings. http://techtips.salon.com/boot.....o-613.html

Optical drive IS your CD/DVD drive.

Fixed, I think they just might have googled an untested solution.

hi I still have not been able to reboot, is it the USB optical drive or the internal optical drive that should be first in the bios Thanks Linda

You need to put first in the boot list the device you are wanting to boot from.

it is trying to boot from network location, go back into bios and make sure that the boot sequence has the cd drive and hard drive listed before PXE.
