Uninstalled my version of Sony PC suite and reinstalled the latest version of PCsuite and then downloaded a software update tool from the Sony site Called Update Service. This took several attempts but eventually it sprung into action. I was told that my phone was broken by 5 different phone outlets.

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times

Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

My phone was shut down,when i turn it on white screen at the vibrate is not stopping..please help me

That sounds like a short-circuit.
Try to remove the battery and press the turn on button with the battery out. Then wait 1 minute and insert de battery and do as normaly. I think that you spilled wather or some liquid on your phone.

so lame, so i was installing a couple themes from se's website and my bottom bar was gone, so i restarted the phone, now when its booting it gets about half way on the scroll bar (where its black with white letters saying sony ericsson) the bar stops right under the 'r' in ericsson
so i was wondering if there is a way that i can get around this by maybe doing a hard reset?

o and yes i did pull the battery, about 7 times now, been trying different things (only allowing it to boot so far and removing the battery, no sim, holding keys etc..)

please help, thanks
