During such circumstances, you need to restart your laptop. Still when you receive such message, ensure whether new software or hardware is installed properly.

Even then if the problem continues, remove the newly installed hardware or software completely from your laptop.
Chances of losing your data
While you are formatting all the data contained in your Sony VAIO Y Series laptop might be erased. To avoid such issues, before formatting make sure that you have sufficient backup of your important data in CD or DVD. Also ensure whether you have a backup of all the partition and saved things like favorites or bookmarks from the browser.
