VAIO VGN-A190 works great with XP, but is very slow with VISTA! The CPU is 100% utilized with VISTA every time there is a disk access or screen update (unsure which one)!

    I upgraded the RAM to 2-GB and 4-GB for the Memory Stick for the Vista "booster" (used for the Page file / Virtual disk file)?.

The reason is your machine is too slow for VISTA. Your machine need better vidio hardware and more ram.

Vista is more graphic intensive.

Sony vaio vgn-fw290


Did the Restore complete? If not try it again.

If the Restore completed and when you boot the machine all you are getting is a black screen with a blink cursor try the steps below:

Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Often times, when a PC has be used for a long period of time, information becomes fragmented on the disk, causing read errors and various problems similar to what your experiencing.

To rectify this issue:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > "Disk Defragmenter"

I would also suggest using a free tool called Ccleaner. This is a wonderful maintenance tool.
