My apologies, the model of the laptop is actually PCG-705. I just missed hitting the five I guess. Anyway, the boot CDs work just fine on any other computer. So they certainly are not the problem. Thanks for the suggestion, but I made sure that was already working right.

I only have posted this question again because it's been weeks and I wasn't very helpful in the way I described things before. I was not trying to make several posts hoping that someone would help one of them. There doesn't happen to be ways I can delete the other posts is there?
