The very fact that these laptops were in high demand even after Sony stopped production and were in market until the stocks ran out is the very indicator that these laptops were much loved by all.

VAIO laptops became successful because these laptops appeal to the current generation of users who are not easily fooled by branding and marketing strategies. The minimalistic design appeals to users who want to know what is running under the hood and want to use the VAIO computer for important work that will tax the resources of most other laptops. However, every laptop is bound to have some or the other issue, especially if you are always on the move and have rough use for the laptop.

The Media disk, which can either be a CD or a DVD can be easily placed and pushed inside to run the media. Normally, this is supposed to function smoothly without any issues. However, problem arises when the CD tray does not appear when pushed. In such scenarios, you can either contact our Sony VAIO laptop support or make the following changes yourself.

              Troubleshooting Laptop Issues

  • First off, you need to check if the CD drive is working. The easiest and sure-shot way of determining so is by clicking on the Eject button right next to the tray door. Once clicked, the LED button next to it is supposed to start blinking green light. If this light does not appear to be blinking, it means the drive is either disconnected or got damaged.
  • If this is not the case, try and restart your computer. The simple act of restarting your system might unlock the drive.
  • As a last resort, you will have to un-jam the CD disc drive by bending a paper clip wire straight and pressing it into the hole on the far right side of the disc drive door cover. The hole is the emergency release button and will act upon applying pressure.
